Quite Continental Wants: Timex Traveler for J. Crew

Over the years, I’ve frequently worn a men’s watch. I have a weakness for leather braided watchbands and a big, clean watch face, and women’s watches tend to be a bit dainty for my taste. In fact, one of my favorite watches is one I actually nicked from my father that doesn’t even work, but that I still wear, because it reminds me of him — it’s more of a handsome keepsake than actual timepiece at this point. I’ve also been nursing a crush on various men’s field watches (and particularly the J.Crew/Timex ones, at that). However, something prevented me from pulling the trigger — and I think it was because I was subconsciously waiting for the J.Crew/Timex Traveler.
Loving the clean face and the classic styling here — this will never look dated, and it isn’t a precious twee lady watch. Hmm, dare I call a watch “timeless“? Also love the shocking pink strap here, but plan to pick up quite a few different watch straps to change it up, as needed.
