The origin of the trend happened on the other side of the Pacific, pundits believe.

Roberta Naas, a 32-year journalist in the watch industry, writes for Forbes that women’s watches are getting smaller, a trend that may offer more femininity. She cites a number of brands “unveiling petitely feminine watches, making this the first time in many decades that the trend is toward tiny.” Some pundits speculate that the driving force behind the trend is consumer taste in China.

Naas writes: “Typically, wrists are smaller and preferences in Asia tend to be for the smaller watch sizes. … Expecting this to be a big boon to business, many brands down-sized for women, despite the fact that the strong American market may still love a larger size. With the Chinese market weakened, the watches have to go somewhere, so a new trend has begun.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
