Nixon Time Teller Ceramic Watch: The Time Has Come

Investment watches are classic (and every snob deserves at least one that will stand the test of time in her collection), but there’s something about a frugal timepiece taken from the wrists of the guys and tailored to fit you that is irresistible. It says, “Layer me! Toss me on and go!” Nixon has nailed […]

Swarovski "D:Light" Watch: Groove is on the Wrist?

With a total of 171 crystals, the “D:Light” by Swarovski hardly looks like much of a watch. The idea behind this stainless steel watch is really cool: it looks like a sparkly silver cuff until you push a button, then the crystals light up to display the time. But the outcome isn’t that attractive – […]

Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Watches in Gold, Rose and Coral: Which Watch Wins?

So I am a tad obsessed with watches…especially giant, weighing your arm down, made for Shaquille O’Neal watches. I’m not sure what started this interest but I’m just going to give in. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry watches are feeding my addiction in all the colors of the rainbow and I am in love. […]

Michael Kors Stainless Steel Chronograph Watches: Hot Chocolate

First, there was rose gold to capture our attention, now we go deeper yet into chocolate (who doesn’t love chocolate?) with these two versions of Michael Kors‘ stainless steel chronograph watch. The matte finish version is so beguiling my senses can’t quite get used to its modernity. It reminds me of those totally matte black […]

Corum Golden Bridge Automatic

You do not know this about me but I am a watch freak. I will not disclose how many I own but let’s just say it’s an obnoxious number (been collecting since college). My husband is also a watch collector and he has a birthday coming up– I am thinking Corum’s Golden Bridge Automatic is […]

Brera Orologi Frederica Collection

I love the look of this watch from Brera Orologi’s Frederica Collection (the co-founder named the women’s watches after names she would give to a daughter someday…how cute!). It’s sporty, but still stylish so it’s perfect for a gym-to-lunch look, not to mention a way more affordable and original version of the white ceramic Chanel […]

Juicy Couture Stone Cluster Watch Band Bracelet

I’m just going to say it – I sometimes like Juicy Couture and I’m comfortable with the fact that I’m not embarrassed about it anymore…there I said it! I’ve gotten a few items these past few months and surprsingly not only from their Bird line (in fact this awesome cocoon coat I wore a ton […]

Marc by Marc Jacobs Pelly Watch

While everyone is still wearing white watches, you will be uber chic in the all matte black one. Black also looks way more expensive than white, unless you go true luxury, white watches just look cheap and cheesy. This is great casual or dressed up to go out (not formal evening but it really depends […]

Chanel J12 Rétrograde Mystérieuse to Benefit amfAR

In a move that only serves to further reinforce its philanthropic ties, Chanel has created a one-of-a-kind J12 Rétrograde Mystérieuse white ceramic time piece that will be auctioned off with 100% of proceeds benefiting amfAR. Valued at 260,000 Euros (or $344,266 dollars), this Rétrograde Mystérieuse is not only extravagantly expensive, but its mechanisms in watchmaking […]
