My favorite “Fashion Do” for the transition to fall? This chunky, oversized men’s watch by Steve Madden!
Steve Madden. The name instantly conjures visions of must-have shoes, sandals, boots, and of course, glorious handbags. But, did you know that Steve Madden also offers a line of luxury watches?
One of my top picks is the classic, oversized gold watch with brown leather band, shown. The simple design is deceptive, because the detail is just amazing.
For example, the black casing is accented by a dull, yellow gold bezel with the most subtle beaded edge. Similarly, the crystal isn’t simply a plain crystal, but is enhanced with the addition of black edging.
The face, which at first glance is basic muted gold, upon closer inspection has an elegant all-over interlocking geometric pattern. And, the second hand, which is a clever display within a display, is set off in earthy green.
Even the minute and hour hands have a contrasting design!
It’s that level of attention to detail that elevates what could be just a utilitarian piece. Instead, Steve Madden turns this watch into a fashion must-have.
The oversized watch is actually designed for men, but it is so gorgeous, it is perfect for women, too. Clearly, Steve Madden was thinking women would be lining up around the block for this watch, because the genuine leather band has seven (!) holes. The band can be easily adjusted to fit almost any women’s wrist.
Personally, I love the oversized, chunky look paired with something more girly. From a casual chambray romper to a work-appropriate sleeveless linen shift dress in ivory, this watch makes a statement. And, in the fall, I plan to wear it over the top of a thin sweater sleeve, paired with contrasting, whisper-thin Alex and Ani bangles.
The oversized Steve Madden watch retails for $120 on the Amazon.com Steve Madden store. And, it comes with a 12-month warranty, plus a 90-day, 100% money back full refund guarantee.
And while you are there, do check out the wide selection of fabulous clothing and accessories. A few of my faves include the Steve Madden Women’s Bloome Ballet Flat and the Steve Madden Women’s Kott Cross-Body Hobo. But, the store includes everything from shoes, to jewelry, to accessories, as well as trademark handbags, and even sleepwear.
