Time for a new watch? Whether you’re after budget-friendly buys or a blow-out investment, clock these styles

1. Hermes

£1,750, 020 7499 8856

This is the traditional Arceau style from luxury retailer Hermès but comes with a modern twist courtesy of the bold colour aptly named lipstick. Team with a Birkin for extra style points.

2. Maurice Lacroix

£535, mauricelacroix.com

This style is a relaunch of Maurice Lacroix’s 10-year-old Eliros collection. It possesses all the hallmarks of the luxury Swiss watchmaker but at a price that won’t break the bank.

3. Marc by Marc Jacobs

£185, watchstation.co.uk

Few colours possess such an autumnal feel as berry red. This style from Marc by Marc Jacobs comes with a seasonally appropriate burgundy leather strap and also a wine-hued face.

4. French Connection

£95, frenchconnection.co.uk

This style from premium high-street retailer French Connection comes in a creamy shade of white mixed with metallic and diamante details for an icy appearance.

5. Swatch

£66.50, swatch.com

Swatch has for many years been successfully outfitting its customers in budget-friendly yet stylish designs. This watch is from the Les Années Folles collection which takes inspiration from the 1920s.

6. Tag Heuer

£3,795, 0800 458 0882

If only the best will do then the new Lady Steel & Rose Gold Quartz Aquaracer design by Tag Heuer should be on your shopping list. The Swiss design comes in a mix of steel and rose gold.

7. Emporio Armani

£139, watchstation.co.uk

This style is a classic design that will mix in seamlessly with your existing wardrobe. It comes in navy, which following its appearance on runways including Celine is on trend for the season.

8. Karen Millen

£105, karenmillen.co.uk

The Chinese year of the snake has had its effect on fashion with serpentine designs like this snake-print watch from Karen Millen popping up all over the high street.

9. Michael Kors

£145, watchstation.co.uk

Michael Kors’ slim-strap watch is great for those not wanting to overwhelm small wrists with big accessories. In black and gold, it will also work in the evening.

10. Oasis

£45, oasis-stores.co.uk

For a high-street take on the decadent trend of rose gold wristwear, try this style from Oasis which looks infinitely more expensive than its modest price tag.
