For the love of a watch

In college I was never a big watch person. I figured, I have my phone, I'll just check the time on that. A nice watch seemed too "adult". Real people with real jobs have nice watches! Well fast forward to a year after college and oh hey! I'm a real person with a real job! I decided I wanted to invest in a classic time piece. I spent time doing my research, finding a look I liked, figuring out a price point and keeping up with sale sites like Rue La La for any deals.

I finally invested in a beautiful Michael Kors Tortoise Shell and Gold Watch as my "back-to-school" gift to myself. I finally got it sized (after having it for four months....) and it has never left my wrist!  Unless I am at the gym, sleeping or in the shower, it goes with every outfit and makes me feel just a little more dressed up. I never thought I would spend a lot of money on something like that, but discovered that something I wear as much as a watch needs to be good quality, so I am willing to invest a little more.

Does anyone have a statement piece of their wardrobe that they bought as an investment?
