Today’s Coveted Working Look: La Mer Collections Wrap Watches

by Anne Dreshfield | March 26th, 2013   

I have a very (very) soft spot for jewelry, especially gold or rose gold pieces. You can constantly find me with at least two rings on, a watch, and earrings, whether they’re vintage, classic, or on the trendier side — yes, jewelry is quite the guilty pleasure for me. So, as you can imagine, I’m constantly on the lookout for jewelry that I can wear from the weekend to the office, with a variety of outfits and styles. One of my favorite pieces to shop for? Watches!

While I’m quite loyal to my gorgeous Michael Kors rose gold watch, I like to branch out and try out different styles for different occasions, and that’s when I turn to La Mer Collections for beautiful, eye-catching watches that are practical and fashionable.

La Mer Collections is famous for their wrap watches, which combine bracelets and watches for a seamless look. They do have other watches, too — boyfriends watches with links, over-sized vintage watches with lovely leather straps — there’s something for everyone here!

While I selected the slightly more subdued styles from La Mer Collections, there are dozens more to choose from, with new designs coming just about every season. Trust me, when you buy one of these gorgeous time pieces, you won’t be able to stop — I’m on my fourth watch and I’m wearing one right now! They are truly elegant statement pieces, and I get so many compliments on mine whenever I wear them.

La Mer Collection’s founder, Martine Illana, has the following to say about her inspiration for the company:

A watch is a private piece of art. Not only does it embody the skill of the artisan who created it, but it is an expression of the owner’s style. In this day and age, with all the technology surrounding us, all we truly need on our wrist is a watch that tells time. Often less is more when it comes to a timepiece’s design and wearing a watch allows you to appreciate esthetic qualities as well as function and technical reliability.”

“I have a tactile relationship with my watches and I appreciate the elegant faces and quality leather straps. Timepieces set the rhythm of my life, but they remain above all, pieces of jewelry with which I develop a genuine connection. I wear a watch because it is an object that conveys some of my most precious values; the connection between art and technology.

I couldn’t agree more. What kind of watch do you wear with your working wardrobe?
