For several decades, watches were not considered a fashion accessory. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Old men with pocket watches or wristwatches wearing bowler hats and fretting about the weather were about the only people carrying them. But as the art of watchmaking advanced, so did the respect of wearing a quality watch. No longer were grubby old men constantly concerned with the time the only people who sought them.
They became a sign of status as much as they were a time-keeper. Today, modern craftsmen and designers team up to create some out-of-this-world style choices to appeal to all areas of the fashion world. Oftentimes, there is a blend between the vintage makes of yesteryear and the avant-garde approaches to fashion today.
A company that impacts how the industry is defined is Michael Kors. Their series of world map watches is a showcase to how their style remains current, while harkening back to the simple, elegant designs of former eras. Let’s take a look at three designs from this series to gain a better understanding of how these watches are stylish, functional, and practical for you to use in nearly any setting.
