Needless to say, I shot straight over to the designer's Madison Avenue boutique and bought myself the same oversized Gold Chrono. (Launched last spring, it's intended for either men or women.).With its one-inch wide band and its nearly two-inch face radius, it makes my men's Bulgari watch look downright dainty. I'm happy to report that despite its massive girth, it's surprisingly comfortable. And the compliments! I've been averaging about three each time I wear it, including from the very discerning Leonard Lauder. When I met him for lunch last week, he reached over to my wrist and said, "Now, tell me about this watch, Jane Larkworthy." I was pleased to inform him that it was by a designer whose fragrances are under the Estııe Lauder umbrella.
