Michele Watches ceramic collection

Written by Debbie. Posted in Michele, News, Women's Watches

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.

Cartier Watches Prototypes New ID One Adjustment-Free Watch

Written by Debbie. Posted in Cartier, Luxury Watches, News, Women's Watches

Cartier watches ID OneAccording to BusinessWeek, Cartier watches is working on a prototype that will cut down on the need for watch maintenance by half, which will have very important consequences for the luxury watch industry.   Bernard Fornas, the CEO for the Geneva-based brand, expects to introduce the new technology within the next three years and compared this development to the difference between cars with fuel-injection and those with carburetors.

Some of the new Cartier watches being released this year include the $117,000 Astrotourbillon and a new Captive line for women.  Like most other Swiss watches, these luxurious timepieces need to be adjusted and maintained every three to five years, which can cost about $775 each time.  Developing a watch that only needs adjustment every six to ten years will be a major improvement.   Many owners of high-end watches are not happy with the additional costs and service delays that regular maintenance incurs.

While the new ID One concept timepiece is still in the prototype state, it was displayed at the International Salon of Fine Watchmaking in Geneva.  This spirit of innovation has helped restore needed optimism for Cartier Watches, which still sees the U.S. market as an “unsure environment”.  Cartier is enjoying a surge in Asian sales, however, and could have as many as 65 boutiques in China within the next five years.

The Blancpain St. Valentin 2010 Watch

Written by Debbie. Posted in Women's Watches

Founded in 1735, Blancpain is one of the oldest watchmaking companies in existence and is one the few that produces less  than 10,000 watches a year. Blancpain watches for men and women are a manifestation of passion for watchmaking, high-art, and a devotion to tradition.Blancpain Valentin

In 1988, Blancpain became the first brand in the world to offer all six different masterpieces of watchmaking at the same time: the ultra-slim movement, the moon phase calendar, the perpetual calendar, the split-seconds chronograph, the Tourbillon and the minute repeater.

The St. Valentin 2010 women’s watch is a totally new creation by Blancpain, as it is the first time the brand produces such a special shaped watch: a heart shape. The concept is devoted to Pure Love and Femininity and with over 500 diamonds and pink sapphires this is obvious. The diamonds and pink sapphires render this exquisite timepiece a true jewelry watch.

True to Blancpain’s reputation as an innovator, the St. Valentin runs on the world’s smallest self-winding movement; the Calibre 615. Otherwise known as “Lady Bird,” this movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case-back.

In accordance with Valentine’s Day falling on the 14th of February, this watch will only be available in a very limited 14 pieces.

Bertolucci Gioco Women’s Luxury Watches

Written by Debbie. Posted in Women's Watches

Why do luxury watch companies make watches that are hard to read and sometimes, actually impossible to read, making it so that you have no idea what time it is?bertolucci-gioco-gold-watch

I don’t really know the answer to that except my guess is that there is always room to impress and many times it’s more about the looks, the movement and the complications, than actually the telling of time. Also, there is always someone out there that wants what no one else has, or in this case, since there are only five of these women’s luxury watches being made, what only four other people can have.

Made by Bertolucci, a watch brand who motto is “Mediterranean inspiration, Swiss craftsmanship,” the watch pictured here is called the Bertolucci Gioco, nicknamed the “Hypno” and comes in a limited edition of only five pieces, either in 18K rose or white gold. These are obviously beautiful designed, highly elegant, exclusive and yes, almost impossible to read; actually just looking at it makes me dizzy. The dials are swirling levels of gold layers that lead down to a mother or peal face. The case measures 42 by 49mm, a large size for a woman’s watch and is mutli-dimensional, which is why it’s so hard to read.

bertolucci-gioco-purpleBertolucci is aware of this and has made a luxury women’s watch that is meant to be worn as a piece of jewelry. The case holds 177 Wesselton cut diamonds equaling 3.85 carats; another version has diamonds on the dial as well as the case and the super high end version contains 527 diamonds covering the entire watch.  Other luxury features about this watch include the small dauphine hands on the face, which are either gold or rhodium plated and the coated sapphire crystal with “Bertolucci” engraved on the lower edge. The watch comes with many different colored leather straps, a gold buckle that matches the crown and runs on a Swiss movement.

Hot Womens Watches and The Babes That Wear Them

Written by Debbie. Posted in Women's Watches

Yeah, yeah, we know that the new “it” trend for women and watches is for women to wear men’s watches, but in the past and even still today, on the streets of Hollywood, you’ll see female celebrities wearing women’s watches.charlize1

Check the list:

It may be that Brit and K-Fed get back together (anyone know the latest?) but when they were married, she was seen switching between wearing women’s watches by Roger Dubuis, Chopard and Breitling. 

Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham, whose sense of style is always being commented on, sometimes goes for a diamond studded Piaget.

Other hot babes with large personal watch collections include Lindsay Lohan, who likes Chanel watches and Jennifer Aniston who likes vintage Cartier women’s watches, although lately the word has been that she’s back to wearing the Rolex given to her by ex John Mayer.

Speaking of him, he apparently likes to give all his girlfriends a Rolex, because Jessica Simpson has also been seen wearing a gold President.

Another way that celebrities get to wear watches without having to buy them is if they become “ambassadors” for certain brands. SEE Charlize Theron; she was once an Ambassador for Raymond Weil watches and got to wear lots of different styles of women’s watches, including pieces from the gorgeous Shine collection by Raymond Weil.

 

A spokeswoman for Omega watches, Nicole Kidman just did an ad campaign for the new Seamaster Planet Ocean Jewelry collection.

So, yes, hot babes like to wear men’s watches, but hot babes are also still wearing women’s watches. The question is, have you ever seen a hot dude wearing a woman’s watch?
