Marc by Marc Jacobs
Rectangular Watch

After much hype and many fashion editorials, the Marc by Marc Jacobs watches have finally arrived in stores. Shiny, funky, and oh-so-Marc, they are well worth the wait. I can hardly decide which one I want first!

I've narrowed it down to four favorites. So far, the frontrunner is the white Rectangular Watch (left, also available in navy). The thick strap and silver buckle are rugged, but the white patent leather is pure fashionista fun. Sure, it's not for wearing with a suit on the way to a big work meeting, but it will go just about everywhere else. I love the idea of pairing it with a flowing cocktail dress and oversized handbag a la Mary-Kate and Ashley for a night out on the town.

Round Face Watch

The red Round Face Watch (right) is just as fun as the Rectangular Watch, but with a punch of color and a feeling that is a little less mod and a little more preppy. It would add the perfect splash of color to fall's subdued layered sweaters.

Star Charm Bracelet Watch

For true versatility, I'd turn to the Star Charm Bracelet Watch (left). The antiqued bronze link bracelet is perfectly posh and just right for more formal occasions. On the other hand, the kicky star charm is pure fun and begs to not be taken so seriously. The result? A watch that doubles as jewelry and can go everywhere with ease.

Tank Watch

Marc gets a little bit more serious with the black, python embossed leather Tank watch (right). This classic shape gets new life with oversize numerals, a super shiny silver case, and a heavy duty buckle strap. This is a watch that will be at home in boardroom and on the dance floor, and it even comes in red. Perfection.

Thank you Marc for making fabulous watches that are both fashionable and affordable. Yes, well worth the wait. Click on any photo to link directly to where you can purchase that Marc by Marc Jacobs watch online.
