Best timepiece gifts for Mom this Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day on the horizon, are you scrambling to find the perfect token of gratitude for your mom? Consider the gift of time in the form of a watch.

The Joliet-based Newstar Jewelers carries both Movado and Bulova, brands known for their elegantly made timepieces.

Despite the multiple devices in our reach these days which can display the time, wristwatches continue to be a popular accessory.

“Even though people tend to use their cell phones instead of a watch, we still sell a lot of watches,” said Theresa Murphy, owner of Newstar Jewelers. “They are more of a piece of jewelry rather than just to tell time.”

The larger dial watches are popular in today’s market.

“There are some that have diamonds or crystals on them to dress them up,” Murphy said. “They look much nicer than a fitness watch when you are attending special events or when you are going out for dinner.”

The Movado brand offers a smartwatch which has several digital dial options.

“So it can still do what your fitness watch does, but can give you several different looks — sporty to dressy,” Murphy said.

Which style of watch would work best for the matriarch of your family? Consider her lifestyle.

Does she need an everyday timepiece to wear to the office? Could she use a fancier watch to pair with her date night ensemble? Or one to wear to the gym?

The second Sunday of May is right around the corner, but there’s still time to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Let the experts at Newstar Jewelers help you choose a watch to show the mom in your life how much you appreciate her.
