The wrist is a very important part of the female body for many fashion brands. In recent years, many luxury brands have invested in the creation of high quality watches for he affluent female demographic.
Suzy Menkes, the well-known fashion critic from the International Herald Tribune, noted that “watches are the new handbags.”
One reason for this statement might be that luxury timepieces could make good investments. In the time of a global recession, people are looking to spend their money on valuable things, which is why we are seeing things like handbags replaced by things like watches made of precious materials. The value of these can be especially high when purchasing limtied editions.
