Killer Accessories: Funky Watches

A watch is just not any accessory, but an important necessity. (Almost) everyone uses a watch to look at the time. Watches are also statement pieces depending on the style you are wearing. So, with that being said, are you always late for class and are in need of a new watch but don't know where to look? Look no further as this guide will hopefully help you find a watch that suits your needs and lifestyle.

These watches are really cool, and I love the assortment of colours that they have! These 2 styles in particular caught my eye; the watch 01 and the Ice Cube. These watches are lightweight, are made of silicone/vinyl rubberand have a 3 atm water resistance. The Ice Cube style has stainless steel backing for support and comfort. Price ranges from $25-$40, and are available at The Bay and Boathouse. Check out their web site here:

These watches are SO CUTE! I really like the space-bimba watches. The face on that watch is adorable. Italian-made and designed, these watches are made of polyurethane, and are available in a variety of colours to choose from. Alessi watches are sold at Rolo. Price ranges from $85-$95.

I remember wearing Swatch watches when I was young; that goes to show how long this brand have been in existance. Swatch continuously design watches to fit the current trend. Stylish and fun, these watches are also available in a variety of colours, patterns and styles. These 3 styles 'popped' out at me when browsing through their web site, and it doesn't hurt that they are new arrivals as well! These watches are currently available in Swatch boutiques and Kiosks in shopping malls, as well as fine jewellery places that are authorized to sell them. Price ranges from $50-$165.

Casio Baby-G
These watches are old school, but you can't go wrong with that! Still in style and in demand, these watches come in a variety of colours and styles. They are shock resistant as well as 100M water resistant, and have unique digital faces. Price ranges from $90-$160, and are available at The Bay. Check out their web site here:

I personally own a Toywatch and love it to bits! They are made out of a plastic that makes it very lightweight. Very popular with the fashion-obsessed crowd (like myself), these watches have also been spotted on many celebrities. They come in an abundant number of colours and styles, so there's a watch for everyone! They also have a collaboration with Missoni. Available at The Bay, Over the Rainbow, and European Jewellers, these watches range in the $200+ price range. Check out their web site here:

Movado Bold
Damn, when I saw these watches, I really wanted to have one! They are so chic and stylish. simplistic, but not underrated, these watches are sure statement pieces. One can tell immediately that this watch is from Movado, but it's something so classic but in trend at the same time. Price ranges from $295-$495, these watches are currently available at European Jewellers. Check out their web site here:

Which ones do you like? I'm a big fan of fun colours so I like all of them!

Yours truly,
