If you need a timepiece fast, and don’t want to blow your wad, here’s a plan.

As with eyeglasses, a large and varied stable of wristwatches can transform the look of an outfit. Both can also cost as much (or more) than the suit or whatever it is you’re wearing. So how to build up the accessory wardrobe? When it comes to watches, how about one showpiece, say a Movado, bolstered by one of the offerings at JackThreads? In case you haven’t heard of it, JackThreads is a members-only site (but anyone can sign up) that holds exclusive sales daily. It has pages of arm candy—dressy, sporty, whimsical, outdoorsy, and functional—from $14.99 to $400. I recently saw this rose gold/cherry Steinhausen Marquis Automatic Calendar for $139.99 (available for $625 here), but the inventory is always changing. So if you see something you like, don’t hesitate.
