Timeless Timekeepers

Do you remember how, in the early 90s, digital watches were all the rage? Everyone at my elementary school simply HAD to wear one of those ridiculous Timex contraptions. Back then, our watches would beep every hour on the hour, and it was actually considered COOL to sport one of those hideous watch tans. But then again, I was raised in Canada, so this could be completely over all of your fabulous Charlestonian heads.

Thing is, hardly anyone uses watches anymore. Instead we depend on our rather undependable cell phones to tell us what time it is. I say we spice it up, fashionistas. Let’s start rocking glamorous watches once again, though not of the digital variety. We can also avoid those grotesque watch-tans by rocking some SPF.

Holy City-ites, we need look no further than our friendly neighborhood Saks Fifth Avenue (on the corner of King and Market, obvi) for some of the most glamorous watches around. From bling-bling expensive to relatively decently priced, Saks has it all, for those hailing from both Mars or Venus. Don’t let the price tags deter you; any of these timeless timekeepers would be a sound investment.

For her:

Cartier’s White Gold Love Watch, $6,100

A bit out of my price range, I’d have to say, but fabulous none the less.

Burberry’s Steel & Leather Watch, $295

A classic and sophisticated watch from one of the UK’s favorite brands.

Gucci’s Signoria Stainless & Gold Watch $2,850

This ticker could easily pass for a sexy bracelet.

Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Ladies Stainless Steel/Leather Watch, $150

A classic and versatile wristwatch that would be appropriate day or night.

For him:

Burberry’s Stainless Watch, $595

Another gem from the classic line. For the stylish man on the go.

D & G by Dolce & Gabanna’s Gents Navajo Watch, $250

Sleek and sophisticated, this watch would go with any outfit.

Zodiac’s Stainless Chronograph Watch, $275

A classic men’s watch I could easily see members of Generation X, Y and Z sporting.

Gucci’s The Pantheon Watch, $1,895

A man who wears this watch would simply be the definition of GQ.




  1. Don’t forget Nixon and Diesel watches! They have excellent, innovative choices for both men and women.

  2. Not the biggest fan of Nixon or Diesel products but that Gucci has officially been added to my wish list.

  3. Brian, when I first saw that watch, I totally thought of you. -L
