Invest in a timepiece and buy a gold watch. Bamford might be the name to look for, but there are a number of other labels providing similar styles for fractions of the price. For classic styles, Michael Kors' and Marc by Marc Jacobs both do designer alternatives at more accessible rates, or look to Topshop for the high street options. While Casio remains a favourite for retro pieces at affordable prices. Alternatively, look for an avant-garde style. Sara Designs' watches use chunky layers of chain in place of the typical watch strap, for pieces that exude a contemporary vibe.
