The Jewellery Edit: The Understated Watch is Back

NATASHA SHERLING SHARES THE NEW WATCH STYLES TO BUY NOW 

How’s your new year’s resolution of being more p unctual working out? The key, really, is a lovely watch that you’ll love looking at so much, you’ll be hard pressed to be late ever again.

There is a slow but steady move away from the oversized watches that have been dominating wrists for years. Daniel Wellington moves nimbly through trends with simple, smart timepieces that tick lots of stylish boxes, while the Longines Heritage Classic from Longines is purposely inspired by a vintage model from the late 1940s, with a clean face and retro Arabic numbers. A superior watch brand for investment (it holds its value really well), Patek Phillipe’s new Flyback Chronograph has classic good looks with elegant touches across the dial, strap, and pushers that again reference their archived vintage models.

Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual is understated yet glamorous; go for the 26mm, the smallest size, for the most updated way to wear this watch – but choose from a range of coloured dials at Weir & Sons to make the style your own.

Finally, I will never not extol the virtues of a Swatch watch – precise to a T, the Swiss brand will even replace batteries for free, on the spot, if you bring your watch into any of their stores. Known for their abundance of fun colours and styles, they also do some very simple, smart options – with its smooth leather strap, stainless steel case and clean face, the minimal model below is classically stylish.
