Twisting Timepieces

The latest trend in timepieces offers a hot new twist on telling time, Marion Fasel and Penny Proddow explain in August's InStyle. The latest watches for women have "an extra-long strap that wraps snake-like around the wrist at least twice."

According to Fasel and Proddow, the most striking styles come in neutral leather paired with angular metal faces. "A wider strap adds a bold note to the wearer's look, while a thinner strap has a subtler appeal," the writers say. Featured in InStyle are leather wrap watches by Ologi, Gucci Timepieces, CK Duality, Hermes and DKNY Time.
