It has been over a year since my favorite watch was damaged when I had the battery changed. :( Since then, I have a few old watches I throw on when I absolutely need to wear one, but haven’t had a quality, classic go-to.

It’s simple enough to wear every day, but it’s beautiful! I have been obsessed with rose gold the past few years, so I HAD to get the rose gold option.
