If you're thinking of splurging on a new watch, consider these swanky pieces now
Watches to covet
Bargain season may be in full swing right now, but let’s be honest, we deserve a top-tier treat every now and then *cough*. You know, one that we can proudly inform our friends: “Yes, I paid full price for it because I’ve earned it.”
Sure, there’s always the option of stashing all of your money in the bank, but if you’re worked so darn hard for the past half of the year, surely you deserve a pat on your back, no?
Maybe you’ve finally achieved your weight loss goal. Or perhaps you recently got a pay increment (lucky you)…whatever the ‘excuse’ may be, we’re giving you the green light to pamper yourself with these gorgeous watches.
Credit cards, at the ready!
Aquaracer Lady, $2,700 by Tag Heuer

La Mini D de Dior Satine Tressee, price unavailable, by Dior
Turning 70 is a big affair for the house of Dior and to mark this milestone, the luxury label has unveiled two limited edition timepieces, one of which is the La Mini D de Dior Satine Tressee (pictured).
It may be a petite little thing (its case is just 19 millimetres in diameter), but thanks to its standout yellow gold bracelet and diamond encrusted bezel, this watch will leave a lasting impression at your next big dinner function.
Since its launch in 2000, the Chanel J12 collection has been the go-to for women watch lovers around the world.
There is a clear demand for these contemporary pieces, which is why the luxury label has introduced yet another addition to the J12 family. Available in two colours — black and white, both of which are hues beloved by Gabrielle Chanel — the J12 Graffiti is limited to just 1,200 pieces.
Don’t walk; sprint to the nearest Chanel boutique to get yours now.
Some of us consider swans as our spirit animals (because they look so graceful). Others gravitate towards something fiercer, like snakes.
If you belong to the latter, Bulgari’s Serpenti Twist will speak to you. Wrapped around your wrist, the sinuous strap brings to mind a serpentine body, while the green lacquered dial and pink gold case telegraph to others what a tasteful dresser you are (without you having to do anything at all).
