Five Great Back to School / Back to Work Watches
Words by Windup Watch Shop

It’s time to face the facts… summer’s coming to an end. It might not feel like it quite yet (not in NYC at least), but September is just around the corner. That means it’s time to pack up the beach gear, and get in one last long weekend of grilling before heading back to campus, to the office, to the ever shorter, cooler days of the Fall and Winter.

But, it’s not all bad. With school and work comes more reasons to dress well, which means, you guessed it, more reasons to change your watch. So, we’ve compiled a list of watches from the shop that would make perfect companions for the classroom or the office. These watches are all stylish, sophisticated, on the smaller side and maintain easy-to-read legibility… Afterall, you don’t want to be late, or to have to look at your watch too long so to see when your class or meeting will be over.
