Cartier, Gotta Love Them

Cartier Shows The Love

The Cartier name has a way of evoking romance and passionate allure.  Their watch and jewelry creations are much desired, for their styling and delicate design.  With love in the air, Cartier is inspired to introduce their Love Collection.  The Cartier Love Collection is a line, of specially crafted pieces, which will be sold in all of their boutiques, for three days following Cartier’s Love Day Celebration.  This will be a worldwide campaign, and the proceeds will go toward charitable causes, which benefit children.  Cartier’s dedication to the arts, as well as humanitarian issues is commendable. 

The women’s Cartier Love Watch Collection is beautiful.  They come with bold round dials and slim leather straps.  The Love Collection is made up of timepieces, which have been crafted in 18 carat yellow gold, rose gold, and steel.  The look is modern and feminine.  The dials incorporate a new Screw motif, which is meant to symbolize the love between and man and a woman.  I love it when a Company, who has been so successful, for so long, gives back.  The pieces they produce have earned them a fabulous reputation, and their charitable spirit gains our respect.  Cartier is showing their heart, with their tribute to love.

Breitling, In Case Of Emergency

Written by Debbie. Posted in Breitling, Men's Watches, More News, Pilots Watches, Watch Brands

Breitling Emergency Watch For Professionals

I read an article on line recently, where a gentleman, who owns a Breitling Emergency watch was complaining about the cost to maintain it.  I mean, we are talking about a GPS locator, emergency beacon transmitting, life-saving watch here.  So what if it costs $600.00 to replace the battery, this is not your everyday wrist watch.  It is made for professional pilots and seamen, who are sometimes in quite perilous situations.  You must have a pilot’s license to purchase one, and if you don’t you must sign a waiver, which relieves Breitling of all financial responsibilities, if the beacon is set off.  Believe it or not, rescue missions are really expensive, and if you are just someone looking to impress by owning this watch, you flip the bill.  This Breitling Emergency owner even went as far as to complain that the watch must go to Breitling for maintenance, and wished to take it to a “normal” watch shop.  These are not novelty items; the Breitling Emergency is an invaluable tool, which has saved lives.  If you don’t take that seriously, you shouldn’t own one.  My advise for him is to sell his Emergency watch and pick up a nice Timex, they take a licking and keep on ticking…and they won’t put a crunch in his pocket book.

Fruits Watches From Fruitz Are Sweet

Is there a better time of the year to pick fresh fruit, than summer?  How about a juicy pear or a succulent strawberry?  Sounds good, huh?  Well, actually I’m describing some of the flavors of the new Fruits Watches by Fruitz.  Up to now, nothing tastier has come to the watch industry.  These fun and fruity flavors brighten up your summer days, with their vibrant colors and fanciful attitude.  They are inspired by fresh cut fruit and their style is quite unique.  They offer tiny seeds, which act as hour markers, and fruit leaves point out the time on the hour and minute arms.  The color palette is chosen to match that of the fruit the Fruits Watch is named after, and a complimenting strap of soft, pliable rubber is attached to finish the look.  The clever designing of these Fruits Watches makes you think they are all about play time, but the Fruits Watch holds a secret inside, which is working to help change your whole outlook on life.  Inside each Fruits Watch is a disk, which emits a Natural Frequency.  This Natural Frequency Technology matches that of the Earth’s natural vibration, and when you are exposed to this vibrational rate, marvelous things happen.  You sleep better, have clearer thoughts, and are more at peace.  Talk about looking good and feeling good…that’s the idea behind the Fruits Watches.

Gucci New Ad Campaign, Featuring Veruschka

Gucci, the trendsetting design house and luxury watch maker is taking a different approach to their ad campaigns this year.  This iconic fashion house is utilizing their rich and illustrious history for the inspiration of their new advertising campaign.  Their new ads will feature two black and white images, which were shot back in the 1960’s.  Gucci’s new international ad campaign will use these images as a back drop to their three new collections. 

The ads will highlight Gucci’s timepieces, which will be superimposed over the black and white prints.  The G-Gucci timepiece, Gucci’s digital watch, and a traditional men’s chronograph, featuring a moss green bracelet are the watches to be showcased.  The original vintage photos are of 60’s model and actress Veruschka von Lehndorff.  Veruschka was a legendary model, making 11 appearances on the cover of Vogue magazine and working with artists, such as Salvador Dali, and her shots are as relevant and riveting today as they were 50 years ago.  Digging up these archived images and using them in a contemporary and updated way shows off Gucci’s brilliance, as a designer.  Gucci is pairing the timeless beauty of the past and the present, showing that  splendor really doesn’t ever go out of fashion.

Breitling and Freediver, Herbert Nitsch

Who is Herbert Nitsch, and how did he earn the title “Deepest Man on Earth”?  Well, Herbert is the free diving world’s phenom and the newest representative for Breitling’s Superocean watch.  He is the perfect choice for the job, given the fact that he has acquired 31 world records in free diving.  The Breitling Superocean has traveled that road to the bottom of the sea and back to dry land…but the story doesn’t end there.  Herbert is an extreme pilot, as well, achieving world record status in both arenas.  Nitsch is also known as “The Flying Fish”, as he is the only human to free dive to the incredible depths of 700 feet, on a single, deep breath, as well as being a pilot, who takes his plane to intense heights.  It seems appropriate that Breitling would join forces with this amazing individual.  Breitling has equipped Nitsch with the perfect performance watch for his adventures, the Breitling Superocean.  This precision instrument has accompanied Nitsch on his previous dives, and will be his partner on his next endeavor…an attempt to reach his ultimate goal of free diving to the celebrated 1000 foot mark.  The Breitling Superocean will be on his wrist when he meets that challenge!

Movado Makes Some Smart Choices

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

Movado Boutique Business

As with all retailers, Movado’s business has taken a hit, during this tough economy.  These times have been witness to many Companies going out of business or making concessions in the way in which they do business.  Changing business tactics, such as more out sourcing or cutting corners is the way some retailers have dealt with the recession, but Movado is different.  This watch maker has integrity and staying power.  They have been affected as much as others, but Movado’s attitude has been to ride it out.  Of course, the Swiss watch company has had to make some strategic changes, but not in the quality of their products. 

Unlike many watch companies, who have always made most of their sales through third party retailers or on-line stores, Movado has always had a boutique retail business.  The Movado Boutiques are chic and cater to Movado watch and jewelry clients.  Each of the Movado specialty Boutiques featured not only watches and jewelry, but Movado accessories, as well.  While unique and special, the Boutiques were costing the Company close to $10 million dollars a year.  Closing the Boutiques is just smart business.  For now, only the flagship Boutique in Rockefeller Center will remain open, and Movado can concentrate on bringing us new and creative designs, through their on-line store and 31 outlets.  The bottom line is that Movado is still going strong.
