You can never be too rich or too thin is a quote attributed to Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor who was married to the Duke of Windsor Edward, the former King of England who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry Simpson.
Both the Duke and Duchess, avid collectors of Cartier, Van Cleef & Aprel and Cadena timepieces would probably have agreed that you could never have too many wristwatches either. The Duchess herself owned many diamond crusted timepieces from these renowned watchmakers, which were auctioned after her death for several hundred thousand dollars.
Avid watch collectors would concur that many different styles of watches are essential to every watch collection, including a dress watch, an all-around sport watch and a fashion watch. You don’t have to look any further than luxury retailer TheWatchery.com for a wide selection of these popular watch styles with the site’s Jumpstart Your Watch Collection event.
