Even if we live in a time where you can look at your phone, laptop, or car dashboard to know the time, nothing beats the appeal of a watch strapped around your wrist. Apart from serving as an accessory, it can also make you look more ~profesh~ and put-together (with the right outfit, of course!). If you're looking to invest in a watch you can wear on the daily, check out this list:
An all-white watch will look good with any outfit, whether it's a bright red blazer or a beige linen dress. Despite coming in a neutral tone, it's a sure standout thanks to its chunky, oversized shape, a signature of the Baby-G brand.
