From sporty styles to cool classics, these new-season watches will work hard all day long. 

Watches are something you put on every day (just think of that cost per wear) and, unlike the rest of your accessories, are just as functional as they are fashionable. More importantly, as I recently learned when I left for work an hour before I needed to, watches are much more reliable than the digital clock on your phone.The great thing about watches (other than the fact they tell you crucial information) is that they don’t adhere to traditional accessories rules. Watches aren’t led by trends, they don’t suddenly spout feathers or crystals depending on the season, nor is their size dictated by whether mini or macro accessories are ‘in’.

Buying a watch comes totally down to personal preference from every aspect: shape, style, price, digital or analogue. Are you someone who seeks functionality over style? Do you want something that will fit in with your naturally sporty aesthetic? Perhaps you’re more inclined to a contemporary metal strap over a traditional leather one? Would you rather a square face to a round face?

The options are endless, and the ease with watches is that you can make them timeless (pun intended) depending on your own sense of style. 

To give you a helping hand we have rounded up the best watches to invest in now.
