The Boyfriend Watch

I’m in the market for a new watch. My current one, Nixon’s The Small Playa, has served me well for nearly four years now. It’s everything I love in a watch; large, silver, men’s, too big for me, minimalistic, polished look. It’s also got a black face, which I am partial to, but it’s not essential.
Checking all of these boxes, my Nixon and I have a great relationship. But, once again, a day at The Weekly has me lusting after some new items. Specifically:

I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs watch. I feel it’s more of an updated, feminine version of my current watch, whilst still retaining that hint of masculinity. Plus, the way I wear my watch halfway up my arm accentuates the “boyfriend watch” feel.

Although it's a stray from my usual preferences, I also came across this red Adidas watch and was immediately drawn to it. I love the bright colour combined with its large size. Although I’m sure I’d never purchase it; it has more of a sporty feel than the rest of my wardrobe, I can’t see how it would apply.

Here are some fabulous other boyfriend-style timepieces that might take your fancy.

Invest in a boyfriend watch today to liven up any outfit. Add an edgy touch to a polished or preppy look. Highlight the masculine feel when wearing a boyfriend blazer or jeans with an aptly named time piece. Or make your outfit the canvas for your boyfriend watch by wearing something plain, like a black maxi dress.
