Louis Vuitton Introduces Limited Edition Tambour Bijou Secret Timepiece Set

Written by Debbie. Posted in jewelry watches, Women's Watches

In a limited edition set, Louis Vuitton adds to its Tambour Bijou women’s watch collection a new ‘secret’ timepiece aptly called the Tambour Bijou Secret.

The characteristic that makes the Tambour Bijou Secret watch ‘secret’ emerges out of the watch’s appearance, seemingly being at once a jewel and a watch. The timepiece consists of two layers, the first of which pivots to reveal a watch dial ‘hidden’ underneath.

The Tambour Bijou Secret watch comprises a simple, but elegant flower shape on both of its layers, the top being a flower with rounded petals and the bottom having a flower with pointed petals. Both layers are carefully encrusted with diamonds, greatly contributing to the watch’s stunning and glimmering appearance, without being overtly ostentatious.

This timepiece, rather, is the epitome of femininity and class, with a feel that is both timeless like a jewel and modern as a watch. Being largely inspired by jewelry, the Tambour Bijou Secret watch has a rounded shape with a small size of just 22mm, akin to a jeweled bracelet as much as to a timepiece.

The Tambour Bijou Secret timepiece comes in three versions, each demonstrating Louis Vuitton’s careful and advanced mastery of the delicate materials the company utilizes in its pieces. The different versions consist of: white gold and mother-of-pearl, rose gold and Polynesian mother-of-pearl, and white gold and mother-of-pearl with a special strap fully encrusted with about 6 carats of diamonds. As all three versions appear very differently, choosing between them could prove a difficult task, as they are all equally stunning and elegant.

Louis Vuitton’s Tambout Bijou Secret timepieces come in three versions, from left to right- white gold and mother-of-pearl, rose gold and Polynesian mother-of-pearl & white gold and mother-of-pearl with a 6 carat diamond encrusted strap.

The hidden dial of the Tambour Bijou Secret consists simply of two hands and no markings, the watch serving the timekeeping function without being out rightly done so. The dial is also marked with the brand name Louis Vuitton, a reminder of the luxury and high quality nature of this product.

Each watch comes with two different straps, a patent Monogram triple-tour and an alligator strap fit to seamlessly match each particular version of the Tambour Bijou Secret timepiece.

Launched to great success and acclaim in 2006, the Tambour Bijou watch collection has become a staple product of Louis Vuitton’s impressive repertoire. The company proudly introduces the Tambour Bijou Secret women’s timepiece in this light, a limited edition watch that encapsulates Louis Vuitton’s technical and creative mastery when it comes to producing accessories that are timeless, elegant and luxurious.

World’s Most Expensive Luxury Watches

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Chopard, Diamond Watches, jewelry watches, LifeStyle Watches, Luxury Watches, Style Watches, Watch Brands

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.

Movado, More Than The Museum

Written by Debbie. Posted in jewelry watches, Luxury Watches, More News, Movado, Style Watches, Watch Brands

Vintage Movado Finds

 Movado is a well known watch brand, but what do we know?  We know the Museum Watch.  We definitely know a Museum dial, when we see one.  These watches have been Movado’s defining symbol, for as long as I can remember, but what of the Movado…before the Museum?

The Museum dial was designed in 1947, but by then Movado had been in business for many years, and created many important timepieces, so what has happened to these vintage pieces?

Looking on line and you can locate many rare and highly collectible Movado watches from the early to mid 1900’s.  These creations are beautiful, and their quality is unmistakably Movado.  As I said, this Swiss watch maker came long before the Museum watch did.

One such find, is the Movado Women’s Bracelet watch, circa 1960.  This watch was crafted in 14 carat yellow gold, and has really contemporary styling.  It is modern and stylish, and features a rectangular dial, made of Mother-of-Pearl.  The delicate arms and minimalistic face of this women’s watch is in keeping with Movado’s design elements.  This watch is a mechanical movement, and Swiss made.  It offers a bit of color, in its’ blue jeweled cabochon crown.  There are many of these fabulous estate finds, so the next time you think of Movado, remember they are more than their Museum watches.

Breitling Chronomatic Diamondworks Will Blow You Away

Ok, the superior watch makers at Breitling have done it, again.  Wow! That is the reaction I had, and I’m sure you will have, when you get a look at the newest creation from this authoritative watch maker.  The Breitling Chronomatic Diamondworks watch was recently unveiled, and isn’t it spectacular.  The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is the 2nd generation of the Chronomatic watch, which was produced in 2009.  Looking over the original Diamondworks, it’s hard to believe that Breitling could raise the bar any higher, but they have.  The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is dripping in 18 carat rose gold and diamonds.  The setting of the diamonds is one of a kind, as is the movement which runs the timepiece.  The powerful automatic winding mechanical movement is one of Breitling’s proprietary innovations.  Breitling, leaders in their industry, have infused this watch with some surprising and unique design elements.  The Diamond setting is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.  The diamonds which mark the hours are displayed in a double row, atop a beautiful Mother-of-Pearl dial, and the bezel diamonds are meticulously integrated with numerical carvings, giving off an almost hieroglyphic appearance.  There is no way to mistake this for any other, than a Breitling.  The combination of exceptional horologic design and superior craftsmanship give this watch real collector appeal.

Movado’s Alluring Ambassador

Written by Debbie. Posted in jewelry watches, More News, Movado, Watch Brands, Women's Watches

Amanda Seyfried, Movado Ambassador

Who are the Movado Ambassadors?  Well, one of the proud Ambassadors to this legendary watch maker is actress Amanda Seyfried.  The American born actress and former child model exudes chic and elegance…a perfect match for Movado.  The actress is best known for her roles in both the film Mamma Mia! and in the role of Karen in Mean Girls.  Ms. Seyfried also played a starring role in the film adaptation of the Nicolas Sparks book, Dear John.  The movie was a hit, and so was her portrayal.  Looking at her doe-like green eyes and delicate features, it’s easy to see why Movado would want to join forces with her.  She seems to emulate, through her appearance the same qualities the Movado designers have been working on for years.  The demurely subtle look of Amanda Seyfried is so complimentary to the minimalistic stylings of Movado’s watches and jewelry, that it appears to be a match made in heaven.  I wonder, what watch does she prefer?  If I were to make a guess, I would pick the Amorosa.  The ladies Amorosa in solid stainless-steel is a bangle bracelet, jewelry watch.  It is delicate and alluring, with just a touch of sparkle…what do you think?

Omega’s New Colorful Constellation Watches

Omega Watches In Color

 

If you’re searching for a beautiful and well-made timepiece, look no further than Omega watches.  Omega is a trusted name because they consistently create precision watches.  One of their newest additions to their Constellation line is a watch I believe you will adore.  The 123.18.35.60.001 Constellation Quartz 35 MM women’s watch by Omega is stunning.  This watch features Quartz precision movement and is finished with a rhodium plating.  It has a power reserve that will endure for up to 25 months, but you don’t’ have to count the months…Omega has place an end of battery life indicator for your convenience.  The case is shiny stainless-steel and this watch comes with a domed, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, with an anti-reflective coating on the inside.  Of course, the Constellation is brightened by sparkling diamonds encircling the dial, and also in graduated sizes as hour indicators.  This Omega watch is Swiss made precision quality, but what drew me to it is the beautiful deep eggplant color that Omega has presented it in.  The bracelet is purple alligator leather, and Omega has matched the dial in the same color.  It’s truly a stunning combination to me, but if purple isn’t your taste, you can pick this Omega watch up in teal blue or snow white…all gorgeous.
