The wristwatch was invented by the Swiss watchmaker, Patek Phillippe in the late 1800s. When first invented it was worn only by women until the beginning of the twentieth century. Mr. Santos-Dumont, an early pioneer of aviation, had difficulty checking the time while in his aircraft so he asked his friend, Mr. Louis Cartier to create a watch just for him.
Today watches have become an accessory as well as a status symbol. Utilitarian in its purpose, I adore a watch that’s easy to read with a modern edge.
For the ladies, a handsome watch on a feminine wrist has the same appeal as a pinstriped suit worn with a silky shell: strong and sexy. The Day-Date watch by Rolex in everose gold accomplishes this contradiction beautifully. Masculine in size and style, only the pink tint says Miss.
For the gentleman, Cuervo y Sobrinos Robusto Cronografo in stainless steel with a black leather strap is a brilliant choice. The numbers are elegant, but the style is modern man.
