From Cartier to Hermes: All About Watches

Once upon a time you needed a watch to tell time. If you were a child of the 80s you remember just how rad you felt with a colorful Swatch watch strapped around your wrist. But if you had multiple watches, plus a rainbow of colorful rubber face guards, AND the Swatch watch clock on your wall too…you were the envy of everyone in school.

Times have changed, and while watches used to be a major fashion statement and a necessity, smartphones and smart watches seemingly replaced the need for a traditional watch. Now don’t get me wrong, the Wall Street guys still weighed down their wrists with heavy metal bling from Rolex, Breitling and Audemars Piguet, but many women found them to be unnecessary and clunky. Unless, of course, you had one by Michele or Michael Kors.

While we’re constantly revisiting trends from yesteryear—no, I don’t foresee another Swatch watch craze—watches are back in a big (or small) way. Whether you’re looking for something dainty and classic, or blinged out and trendy, LePrix has something to ensure your wrist makes a statement.

Pardon me, do you have the time?
