World’s Most Expensive Luxury Watches

Chopard watchesNow there’s luxury watches and then there’s extreme luxury watches.  Want to take a guess at the price tag on the world’s most expensive one for sale right now?  Don’t even bother…you won’t believe it anyway.  The most extravagant luxury watch on the market to date is the diamond encrusted Chopard, listed at a cool $25 million dollars.  While this watch boasts over 201 carats of pink, blue, and white diamonds, including a single 163 carat diamond…who is really going to walk around with this on their wrist?  Obviously, this is a showcase piece, but is all that opulence really necessary.  When half of America is out of work and struggling, do we really need to be so bold and brazen as to create a watch like this?  I guess the answer is yes, but I for one think it is rather ridiculous.  I want to own pieces with history and meaning, like the old blue dial Seiko watch that my dad used to wear.  I keep that piece tucked away safely in my jewelry box and if anything ever happened to it I would be crushed, but I wouldn’t be broke.  Choosing luxury watches should be more about taste than cost.

Written by Debbie. Posted in Diamond Watches, Fashion Watches, Michele, More News, News, Style Watches, Watch Brands

Michele, The Woman Behind the Name

Who is Michele Watches?  Well, this brand is more than a watch company; it is a three generation watch making enterprise.  Started by Maurice Barough, the company got their roots, as many watchmaker do, in Geneva.  The experienced watch maker taught this trade to his son, Jack, who decided to move his family to the states in 1970 to set up shop.

Jack’s daughter is Michele, the namesake of the popular brand, as well as the creative force behind the styling of the collection.  The very first Michele watch was named the CSX Diamond, and that was only the beginning.  Many more phenomenal creations would come from these entrepreneurs.

The success behind the brand is largely due to their philosophy.  At Michele, the focus is on quality first.  Understanding the components and the craftsmanship that must go into a high quality timepiece is the foundation from which they work.  The fantastic style is just the wrapping on the present, but what beautiful wrapping. 

Michele watches offer women a feminine, yet really contemporary timepiece that can be changed up with interchangeable straps in many different designs.  The concept is forward thinking and modern and has been well received by their clients.  When you buy a Michele watch, you get quality, integrity, and great looks.

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Diamond Watches, More News, Movado, Style Watches, Watch Brands, Women's Watches

Movado Juro Women's is The Perfect Choice

Is there any wonder that Movado watches are so popular?  They are elegant, they are really well crafted, and they are still incredibly affordable.  Any savvy shopper will tell you, that these are three qualities you can’t pass up.  One beautiful line by Movado is the Juro collection.  The Juro women’s watches are classically graceful.  They have a bold look, but are crafted to remain lightweight and sleek.  The Juro women’s comes in several combinations.  There is the solid stainless-steel, which has been finished with a high polish or a brushed.  Then you have the total gold tone, a lovely choice for that special occasion, and it also comes in a combination of the two.  All are lovely and all are quality Swiss made.  These are Quartz movement models by Movado.  The beauty of Quartz is that there is little maintenance to be done.  The batteries must be changed every few years, and of course the watch must remain dry and clean, but that’s about it, easy and elegant.  The Juro is created with the signature Museum dial, in black.  Some of the models are adorned with diamonds, and others remain blank.  Either way, the Juro makes a great choice.  What’s not to love in a watch that’s quality, luxury, and priced right?
