Talked to a watchmaker with the Richemont Group. Asked him what he thought of smartwatches.

"Best thing that ever happened to the industry," he said.

Beg pardon?

"Well, all these people that never cared to tell the time have gotten used to using their phones when they need to but then they buy an Apple Watch because it's too bulky to haul out of your purse now so suddenly they're used to wearing a watch and they discover that Apple Watches are bulky and ugly so they decide maybe they don't like wearing ugly things and they come shopping with us."

Might I suggest a Cartier Tank a' Guichets? They're a mere $30k when you can find them.

(In all seriousness I can't think of a single ladies' watch to recommend that doesn't cost a shit-ton. This is one of many reasons why I think the market is ripe because I'd love to recommend the Chanel Boy-Friend line but they don't start getting interesting until you hit BMW prices)
