While we love the look of stacked bracelets, the simplicity of a watch on a bare wrist is suddenly refreshing. Whether it's an oversize men's timepiece or a bright neon number, watches can be an underrated accessory, often seen as a mere de-facto gift for fathers and boyfriends. So why not skip piling on the bangles this spring and try one on? In our latest Shop-a-Matic, we found 115 watches for men and women that range from retro-inspired digital styles to classic investment pieces. The full selection is here but click ahead to see our favorites.
Zaz Metal Mesh by Nooka
Why We Like It: A clear face gives the illusion that the time is displayed directly over the wearer's wrist and is guaranteed to start conversations.
Pink & Green Timex 80 by Timex
Why We Like It: Timex has reissued their classic digital watch from the eighties in a multitude of hues, and this sorbet-colored one reminds us of eating Popsicles while watching Jem & the Holograms in our youth.
Estremo by Brera Orologi
Why We Like It: Black-on-black detailing is sleek and edgy, but a scratch-resistant face and the ability to be submerged 100 meters underwater make this investment piece worth its price.
Gold Bracelet Watch by Michael Kors
Why We Like It: A bold navy face is an unexpected detail on a classic gold bracelet watch and adds an eye-catching dose of color when peeking out of a shirt cuff.
Disco Chain Wrap Watch by La Mer Collections
Why We Like It: Forgoing bracelets may leave wrists feeling naked, but these pewter chains mimic layered bangles and will toughen up any sweet spring frock.
