Is it still worth investing in a quality watch, even though everyone uses their cell phone or computer to check time?Reader L wrote in to ask about watches: I searched your site and found the post on digital watches, but I would love your (and your readers’) opinions on non-digital wrist watches.It would be useful to hear suggestions at various price points. I’ve written before about how I think watches are still status symbols.

In New York — at least among the legal and banking set — Cartier is kind of the first and last word, at least in my experience.

My 30th birthday gift to myself was a Cartier Tank Francaise watch, though, so perhaps my perception is a bit biased!

(It was a huuuuge splurge for this Midwestern girl.) What to Look For: If you’re spending money on something, I think you absolutely have to love it.

So first and foremost, look for something you really love.

Other considerations: look for a watch that will wear well with your daily activities — if you’re a chef and washing your hands every two seconds, for example, you want a fairly waterproof watch.

Consider how the watch keeps time, also — for example, if you may not wear the watch daily, you may want to avoid a “perpetual motion” watch that stays wound through your body’s motions.

The word on the street is you can wear gold jewelry with a stainless steel watch — but if that will make you feel awkward (like I always do!

) then consider getting a watch with both gold and silver elements.

Finally, diamonds and other jewels: I think this is more of a “know your region” kind of thing.

Here in New York, I would think that a watch with diamonds on it was only for going out — but I have another friend in Miami who wears her bejeweled watch everywhere, including to court. I started noticing Cartier watches (and really wanting one) sometime in my late 20s.

So I started thinking of it as, “every time I see one and want one, I’m mentally putting into my “watch fund jar,” which helped mitigate the purchase a bit when I plunked down the money.
