When people think of their dream watches names like Rolex and Cartier come to mind. I came by my classic at a time when for my income it was unthinkably expensive – $275 to be exact. The year was 1997, and my 21st birthday was coming. I was a college student surviving on an income of about $19K per year. With all that, the item I was dreaming of at the time was a men’s watch. But with my tiny wrists, after trying on 6 or 7 of them at the jewelry store, everything was too big. Then I spotted the Swiss Army Lady Officers. It was still pretty masculine, but the size was something that sat comfortably and looked harmonious with the proportions of my hands. I wore it home, and we have been inseparable ever since.

This watch is no longer available, but I love this option.
