I'm looking or a new watch, don't mind spending as I think it's one of those 'Key' wardrobe items. Well that's my justification anyway..... I would really love something elegant with a black strap but no clue where to begin! Tia!

Cartier stainless steel tank francaise. Was a present 4 years ago and don't think a day goes by when I don't wear it.

I got a very good Bolex in Thailand for £3. Replaced battery 3 yrs later for £6. Amount of comment's I've had on it always make me grin

Looks just like this but also has the date on it (couldn't live without date!) I prefer plain silver or black straps - simplicity is key smile

Omega mini constellation in stainless brushed steel. Got it 3 years ago and love it.

DKNY watches! Same watch but one is white and the other is black.

Fossil. I have one silver with blue face but when it disappeared last year I got a new 2 colour one with mother of pearl face.

The older one showed up down the sofa a week ago.

A Gucci, large face....ladies stainless steel wristband with a large face. It's 24 yrs old.

A mens Skagen rectangular faced one, it's thin but baggy.

Rosa Sun 24-Jul-11 17:57:53

Cartier and swatch for the beach.....

Earlybird Sun 24-Jul-11 17:59:49

MadStaringEyes - what does 'thin but baggy' mean?

apple99 Sun 24-Jul-11 18:03:57

Tag Monaco, was a present about 4 years ago and I love it. I have always preferred to wear big watches as I am not petite at all.

CDMforever Sun 24-Jul-11 18:20:41

Omega constellation.
Got it for from DH 1st christmas after we wed.
I wear it every day and don't swap it for evening wear as its sooo gorgeous and classic.
Did cost more than my first car but well worth it.

PetiteMum Sun 24-Jul-11 18:26:39

I love the bolex comment LOL.....hmmmm think I might need to save up a bit longer. What the opinion on Longines?

MrsSeanBean Sun 24-Jul-11 18:31:10

Cartier tank watch worn since 1994. Lasting well and still in love smile
I wear a Casio baby G watch for work where I need something tougher.

One by Guess.

carrielou2007 Sun 24-Jul-11 18:40:26

I have a couple (one yellow gold with diamonds on the face, one white gold same) of rotary watches have had for a fair few years, think were about 300 each and still look lovely. I second DKNY watches, cheap enough if you want a few for diff looks and to wear everyday without worrying if you bash/scratch them, I have 3 and tend to wear the white gold with sparkly bits on, looks like a bracelet.

superv1xen Sun 24-Jul-11 18:41:10

god i am utterly envy at those of you with cartier tanks envy

noyouhavehadawee Sun 24-Jul-11 18:51:52

i have a rotary - funny enough it looks like a cartier tank! it was about £150 and it is day and night wear and is about 4 yr old.

TheLadyHare Sun 24-Jul-11 18:54:05

It depends what I'm wearing, I have a chunky Breitling and a vintage gold Bulova tank with a rose gold face. I have the original bracelet but prefer to wear it with an dark brown ostrich skin strap.

pink4ever Sun 24-Jul-11 20:14:08

I wear the same watch for day and night-a round faced gold coloured Tissot. Was a present from dh a few xmas ago and I love it because the numbers are big<blind as a bat emoticon>
