Watches may be small accessories, but they can make or break your outfit. The right timepiece can elevate and transform your look from girl-next-door to fashionably chic career woman.

We know the dilemma is real when hunting for the perfect versatile timepiece, what with such a wide assortment of fashion watches available: colourful ones; designs with interchangeable watch straps; swanky, bejewelled styles, and more. In short, we’re spoilt for choice.

That’s why we always recommend going back to basics – and no, basic doesn’t have to mean unenticing and plain. In our book, it means a practical time-telling gadget that doubles as an accessory to pull a sophisticated ensemble together.

Our editors’ pick? The Guess Logo Love collection, whose watches check all our boxes because they’re timeless, trendy and luxe.

Trendy, yet nostalgic

When we think Guess, we think of the brand’s signature red and white inverted-triangle collegiate-style logo with the symbol of a question mark. Since 1981, this icon has been used over the years in fresh new ways by Guess, and has been printed on everything from men’s logo tees, watches and jackets to women’s logo purses and sweaters.

In the Logo Love collection, Guess doesn’t stray far from its sensibilities but still pulls off a more grown-up and classy adaptation of its logo on the watches’ glitzy dials and bracelet links.

And as fashion sees a return of ’90s styles, including logo mania, the nostalgic way in which this timepiece collection uses the Guess logo blends the latest trends and our current love for icons from decades past.

Different shades

Adorned with Quattro “G” emblems in gold, rose gold, and silver, this Logo Love collection offers a watch for every mood. Feel like injecting a feminine touch? Choose the rose gold piece for its elegance and sweetness. Select the silver piece when you need a refreshing, youthful alternative. And for the enduringly stylish touch of luxe paired with, say, a black outfit, look no further than the yellow gold piece.

Suitable for both boardroom and play

These go-to accessories will suit any fashion-savvy woman who wears fierce boardroom suits as well as casual, flirty weekend date outfits. Each watch’s polished round 35mm case has a sunray dial featuring mini interlocking Gs that hit the sweet spot of sophistication with a hint of luxury. The intricate and refined pattern is mirrored and engraved on the polished bracelet. You’ll make an impression in the workplace when you pair one of these watches with a sleek pantsuit to show that you mean business, and yet, it looks equally gorgeous when you take it out for a spin on a weekend brunch date.

The Guess Logo Love collection is available at all Guess Boutiques and selected exclusive retailers. Please find the list here.
