Watch wish list

Me wearing my thrifted Gap shirt Guess watch on a lovely summery day

It's the one accessory that nearly all of us wear or at least own and the best thing about watches is not only are they very practical of course but can also be very stylish, original and unique. Depending on what mood I am in I either go for a small and dainty watch or my bigger and bolder Guess one, although I would love to add more to my collection and have a bit more of a choice. John is currently saving to get a time piece that is an investment and something he can hand down to Mr A one day, his current loves lie with Omega's Heritage and Moon watches. Besides the normal brands such as fossil, Guess and DKNY I am very intriquied and inspired by the WeWood watches, it's an eco-luxury wooden watch brand and they have the ethos of when you buy one timepiece it means they plant one tree - amazing!

Besides the WeWood watch which I would love have, I would like to own something a bit smarter, chic and more sophisticated but yet also quirky, young and on trend with an element of fun to it, as life doesn't need to be serious. My dream high-end watch would be a vintage Chanel watch - when I win the lottery of course but I do love these slightly more affordable but also high end timepieces by Vivienne Westwood, Micheal Kors and Gucci watches are all great choices.

As I have said John is currently saving up for a timepiece he can hand down to the little man, there is something really sweet and wonderful about the idea of handing down an item of true quality to your children, and even though I don't support extravagant spending, as I believe less is often more, I do think that in this case it would be amazing to give him something really special and worn by his own father when he is 21 or graduates University or has his first child.
