Watches sort of 'came back in' a few seasons ago as accessories. I had a lot of friends dropping a lot of money on really beautiful watches, but that seemed a little silly to me. That's probably just the thrifter in me though. Solution? eBay.
I got this watch for 5 dollars on eBay, including shipping. It came with a completely cracked and broken white band, so 20 dollars later and my watch was as good as knew. Pretty freakin' cute too if I do say so myself.
You can by new bands at most jewelry stores!
