The platinum and diamond watch that F. Scott Fitzgerald gave his fiancée Zelda Sayre in 1920 did not measure her heartbeats or tally her burned calories. It cost $ 600, a fortune at the time, it was inscribed From Scott to Zelda, and the recipient, during one of the couple’s vicious arguments, threw it from a train window a few years later. (Think of it—walking along the tracks somewhere in the middle of nowhere, you might yet find this thing, or so I have always hoped.)
Wearing a little clock on your wrist in Zelda’s era was an indispensible tool—how are you going to show up for tea at the Biltmore or meet your beloved for an illicit dip in the Pulitzer Fountain if you don’t know what time it is? Now we have a perfectly reliable timekeeper in our phone, an instrument that is ever in our palms (even at funerals! At job interviews! Put that thing away!), which means that the wristwatch, in addition to marking the hours, must offer a whole lot more than mere ticking! It must be breathtakingly stylish, or at least wildly interesting—sure, it can bring us our emails, map the quickest route from the Louvre to Galeries Lafayette, and pay for our groceries, but will it give your chic twenty-first-century outfit a jolt, a bang, of pure delight?
Here our candidates for the toniest tickers, circa summer 2015.
