Round Watches Pique Fashionistas

Just as the watch world embraced squares and rectangles, the fickle finger of fashion points to round faces again! This isn't bad news for jewelers since, after all, most retailers still have a lot of round faces in stock.

Elle's April issue not only observed that round faces are "timely," due to the interest in menswear-inspired looks, it also noted a preponderance of black and white styles, suited to the trend in fashion towards black and white clothing.

The watches featured, from top to bottom, are: Patek Philippe, Bedat & Co., Coach, Piaget, Bulgari and Jaeger-LeCoultre.
