WSJ. Magazine: ‘Watch Watch’

I seem to be on the same wavelength as a story in WSJ. Magazine. I don’t usually follow men’s fashion, but this article on men wanting smaller watch faces got my attention. I’m right there, too, loving a smaller watch — less statement, a bit more elegant.

  • I’ve always loved watches, and have been known to wear for awhile and trade in towards another watch. I did that with my Cartier white gold tank americaine with a single row of diamonds that my mother had given me for my 50th birthday. I’ve regretted it over the last few years, and particularly when I saw the IG photo of yours…:(

  • Even more inspiration for me to wear the Cartier I messaged you about yesterday.
    Also. I need to get on with my Rolex Oyster again. The larger watches have had such appeal to me for so long….I am happy that like Kathy (above) I don’t have regrets about parting ways with these sentimental little baubles. Once they re gone, they’re gone, and no amount of time brings them back. Pun intended.

  • Hi Preston
    I’m still back a few posts talking perfume.
    I watched the new documentary Nose on Apple , fascinating! And it prompted me to revisit my old favourite Diorissimo.
    Light & fresh with hints of lily of the valley. I’ve found my summer scent by visiting the past.
    Good liuck on your quest and enjoy the doc I’d you haven’t seen it.

  • I love each one of these phots. For men, the large watches seemed a badge of sorts, signaling their station in life. The higher up the corporate flow chart, the larger (and often ridiculously tricked-out) the watch. Being devoted to understatement, the decades-long trend of oversized watches, for both men and women, felt like the worst sort of show-boating. Ridiculously large wristwatches always just came off as gaudy to me.
    Susan’s comment about Diorissimo makes me want to try it!

  • Hello Preston, and another trend you are ahead of, which is what at first I thought this would be about, the head scarf/kerchief!
