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.

Ok, with summer right around the corner, how about some really bright and fun creations from Michele?  The Tropical Paradise line is just that, and more.  I kind of fell for the Tropical Paradise Sea Turtle edition.  It comes with a really vibrant turquoise leather strap, which reminds me of the ocean.  On the face a sweet tropical scene is being played out.  Palm trees are blowing in the wind, the blue oceans is sparkling, and two adorable sea turtles are making their way back to sea, their shells shining in the sunshine.  Actually their shells are lit up by 53 luxurious diamonds!  All of this is set against a white enamel background.  It’s beautiful and tastefully done.  The Tropical Paradise line also features a cute monkey grabbing at a bunch of yellow bananas, and a pretty in pink watch, with an underwater view.  Colorful tropical fish swim along coral and sea plants.  These watches have a summer attitude, do you?

Michele Watches Show Their Spots

Michele Watches

While I’m not your typical girly-girl, I have to admit that Michele watches bring out more of that in me.  This company produces some of the most feminine and fun designs I’ve seen, and wearing them makes you happy to be a woman.  One of my favorite Michele watches is from the Coquette Collection. 

The MWW08A000211 Coquette Petite Diamond Cheetah Patent Leather watch is beautiful and shows a bit of my wild side.  The dial is not you run of the mill round or square, it’s an elongated, rounded rectangle.  The hour markings are also stretched to match the shape of the dial…very art-deco feel.  Surrounding the dial are eighty luxurious diamonds, and the picture is completed with a patent leather strap in a, black and white Cheetah print. 

The case on this Michele watch measures 22.5mm by 33.65mm, and the strap is 12mm.  The total diamond weight is .67 carat…did I mention there are eighty diamonds adorning this beautiful watch? 

 The MWW08A000211 Coquette Petite Diamond Cheetah Patent Leather watch, as with all Michele creations, is all Swiss movement, and of course water-resistant to 5 ATM.  If you love the dial and want to change it up a bit…the strap is interchangeable with all 12mm. Michele watch straps, but why?  This one is purr-fect!

They may not be the only company to use this material, but Michele Watches, like always, does it in a unique, extra-stylish way. We’re talking about the use of ceramic in their watch designs. Many people equate ceramic with weak materials, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Watchmakers have spent many resources in extensive research to make ceramic durable and scratch resistant, rendering a easy to use material in luxurious watches.

If you want to know just how strong ceramic can be, well think of it this way: ceramic can be used to make bullet-proof vests and other armor, so it is a pretty strong material!

Many companies have used ceramic in some of their watch designs, but Michele Watches has successfully bringing out the best the ceramic has to offer. Their practical designs featuring a date window and three-eye chronograph make them great sporty watches, and with their beautiful array of diamonds set around the face, blending softly with the opaque pink of the ceramic band, the watch is absolutely attractive.

They currently feature a number of different styles within their ceramic collection, all following the company’s mission to blend traditional styles with modern looks, making them the perfect piece for every woman.
