Time Tellers Despite the advent of smartphones, we still consider a wristwatch to be a necessity. It can be practical, sentimental and a simple way to elevate your daily look. While there’s no shortage of watches to choose from, here are a few brands we think make 'em best.
Adrien Harper The design duo behind Adrien Harper is creating sharp, clean timepieces inspired by ’90s minimalism. With Roman numerals marking the time, all Adrien Harper watches maintain a focus on detail. Gold, silver, black and rose gold cases frame slim dials, with the option of leather or metal mesh bands across both men’s and women’s styles. Straps can also be purchased separately. The label has as an easy interchangeable system, meaning you’ll be able to switch between bands faster than you can change your outfit to match. adrienharper.com
