No, I'm not impersonating everyone's favorite queen of powdered-ranch-dressing packets and crockpot favorites. Rather, I am talking about cocktail watches! They are the perfect accessory for all your holiday parties, providing style AND function! Our favorites have a delicate black satin strap and a flurry of diamonds surrounding the bezel!
This group of cocktail watches will set you back a pretty penny. But man, are they gorgeous or what?! The Tiffany Oval Cocktail Watch makes our heart skip a beat...
Tiffany Oval Cocktail Watch, $12,600
David Yurman Madison Watch, $6,250
THAT'S MORE LIKE IT
This grouping is still what we would consider "fine jewelry," but they don't involve taking out a second mortgage to afford them. For what it's worth, both MoS girls love their Michele watches!
Michele Mini Urban, $1,645
Michele Deco Diamond Watch, $1,495
My mom has a watch exactly like this one that once belonged to my dad's mom. It is so delicate and absolutely stunning. Even though it does not keep time anymore, it is just a beautiful piece of jewelry.
Vintage Hamilton Deco Watch, $1,695
I'LL TAKE TWO
This group of cocktail watches is perfect for the buyer who isn't ready to make a big commitment. You *think* you will wear it, but you aren't positive. Try one of these out and see what you think. If you wear it a ton (we think you will!), then you can always upgrade to one of the categories above! Of this group, the Skagen crystal bezel watch is our favorite!
Juicy Dalton Watch, $295
Juicy Queen Anne Watch, $295
For the budget fashionista, you can't go wrong with these choices! Yes, we really don't like knock-offs, and it seems like each of the watches below closely resembles a watch above... But, once again, if you aren't ready to commit to a more expensive watch, then these are some good options.
Pedre Watch, $83
Geneva Cord Watch, $22
Do you have a cocktail watch? I really wear mine much more than I ever thought I would. And one trick worth mentioning- check the Saks and Neimans outlets for Michele cocktail watches at steep discounts. They probably won't come with the classic black satin strap, but you can EASILY replace that cobalt blue croc strap with a black satin strap you purchase online!
