Five Celebrities and Their Favorite Watches

One sign of a celebrity’s fame is the kind of watch they wear. Rolex or Christian Dior on a celebrity’s wrist means they’ve made it to the “million dollar club.” Timex means they haven’t. Most celebs have a favorite luxury watch that they love to wear or endorse, gaining publicity for themselves and the watch brand.

Here is a list of five celebrities and the watches that they love to wear and endorse:

 

Diane Kruger Jaeger LeCoultre Rendezvous

Diane Kruger – Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendezvouz Ladies Watch

Diane Kruger has been brand ambassador for Swiss watchmaker Jauger-LeCoultre since 2009. She wears the Rendezvous ladies watch. Available in pink-gold or stainless steel, the watch exudes a feminine elegance that was inspired by Diane Kruger. Says the brand on its official website: “Her innate grace, her cosmopolitan spirit and her choices inspired the feminine world of Jaeger-LeCoultre.” This watch is truly beautiful, with a diamond-set illuminated bezel, 1930s Art Deco inspired numerals set upon a guilloché dial, and a sapphire crystal case-back.

Jennifer Aniston – Rolex Datejust

It is well known in Hollywood that Jennifer Aniston is a “Rolex-only” kind of girl. There are hundreds of pictures of her out on the town with a Rolex on her wrist. Although she has been photographed wearing a black Rolex Daytona, it is clear that her yellow gold Rolex Datejust is her favorite. Her Rolex Day-Date is an 18-carat yellow gold piece with a fluted bezel and a champagne colored dial.

Brand Ambassador for “Swiss avant-garde” watch manufacturer TAG Heuer, Leonardo DiCaprio loves to sport the TAG Heuer Carrera timepiece. With a Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph powering the watch, it’s a perfect match for motor racing and other fast-paced sports. Both DiCaprio and TAG Heuer share a common goal of environmental sustainability.

Charlize Theron has moved from the ads of Christian Dior’s “J’adore” perfume to the Christian Dior VII watch. This watch is extravagant to the extreme. With a white ceramic and steel casing and diamonds set into an opaline and silver dial, it’s hard to decide which is more beautiful – the watch or Charlize Theron.

Kate Winslet – Longines Dolcevita

Kate Winslet has Longines “ambassadress of Elegance” since 2010.  Swiss watch brand Longines, established in 1832, has had many celebrity ambassadors including tennis player Andre Agassi, Australian actor Simon Baker, and Indian Beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, but it could be argued that Kate Winslet is the most elegant face to wear their watches. She wears the Longines Dolcevita, an elegantly designed timepiece that was inspired by the easy-going Italian way of life – la dolce vita. Everything about this watch has femininity to it: its rectangular stainless steel and pink gold case and bracelet, its tear drop hour markers, and pink hour and minute hands.

The Future of Nooka Timepieces – Zub 40 a Watch to Look Out For

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Fashion Watches, Men's Watches, Style Watches, Watch Brands, Women's Watches

Written by: Catherine Wolinski

The future of timepieces is here. Nooka Inc., a New York design company most known for its innovative wristwatches, has recently introduced its newest addition to the Zub family.

Nooka Nootrals Original

The original Zub watch for Nooka Nootrals

The Nooka brand, though not well known or sold in major stores, has received considerable attention since its creation in Dec. 2004.  With its first client as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and current collaboration with companies like Nickelodeon, MTV, and the counter-culture toy store, KidRobot, the brand’s unique approach to timepieces in particular has caught the attention of artists, rappers, and everyday watch fans.

Structured around Nooka’s guiding principles that combine functionality with a futuristic philosophy, the Zub collection follows the company’s creative strategy with its simple appearance.  Also referred to as the “Nooka Nootrals,” the new product employs neutral colors and

monochromatic schemes said to promote the brand values of customizable mood and style. The newest piece, the Zub 40, takes this founding idea to the next level by introducing four color schemes and interchangeable bands.

“I thought if one has to be taught how to tell time, how intuitive is it really?  Surely there are other models, once learned, that can be as intuitive as what we are taught,” says chief designer and founder, Matthew Waldman.

Waldman instills a core set of values in his brand: Universal communication, passion, interaction, purpose, inspiration, and most prominently, futurism.  The products—which also include accessories such as belts and wallets—follow this “Nookafesto” which necessitates every product be a physical manifestation of an idea that surpasses ordinary expectations of everyday objects.

“Nooka changes how we experience technology by placing it in new contexts,” the manifesto states. “The futurist believes that this process always results in progress. Nooka is a futurist brand.”

With a concept that was born in London, first produced in Japan, and is now headquartered in New York City with an office in Tokyo, the Nooka fashion design company has built upon Waldman’s initial theory by creating an eclectic universe of conceptual products that are both pleasing to the eye and enlightening to the mind. Whether you’re looking for a new way to look at time, or are just in need of a new watch, the future is clear—visit Nooka’s website to pick out an accessory that breaches the concept of time as we know it.

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.

Movado Juro, Great Choice For Her

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?

Michele Watches Get Ready For Summer

 

I can’t say enough good stuff about Michele watches.  I think they’re terrific, and offer so many fun, flirty, girly styles!  Michele is a luxury fashion watch maker, geared toward women.  A Michele watch will instantly make you feel a bit more glamorous, more fun loving, more in style.  Let’s check out some great styles.  

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?

Cartier’s Ballerine Watch Shines Bright

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Cartier, Diamond Watches

Cartier's Ballerine Watch Shines

 

Cartier watches come in many different and varying designs, from sporty and fun to the extremely opulent and elegant.  No matter which style of timepiece you choose, a Cartier will make a statement.  Your selection will show your discerning taste, so choose wisely…or just pick the one you fall in love with, like the mini model Ballerine women’s watch. 

This beautiful time piece is quartz, white gold, and diamond studded.  Its brilliance sparkles and the fact that it’s a Cartier watch spells precision. The three tiered bracelet, which is covered in round-cut diamonds, wraps around the wrist in a smooth s-curve style, adding softness.  The lines of the Ballerine are artistic and unconventional for a timepiece.  This watch features an octagonal crown set with a diamond and a silver sunray dial for added flare.  The Ballerine by Cartier is all Swiss made and water-resistant to 100 feet (in case you just have to wear it in the pool). 

Personally, I think this the ultimate out on the town watch. This may be the only accessory you’ll need for your little black dress.  It is elegant and sophisticated, and yes, it’s covered in brilliant diamonds, but it is still understated.  This Cartier watch is a beautiful, functional, piece of jewelry.

Tissot’s New Ads Opening Eyes

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Tissot, Women's Watches

Danica Patrick, Tissot Ambassador

Tissot, maker of fine Swiss watches for decades, has launched a new and exciting advertisement campaign designed to reach a global market. This new approach by Tissot utilizes their brand Ambassadors to present their luxury watch line as accessible to all, rather than portraying the company as exclusive to the elite. The photos are shot in artistic black and white, by renowned fashion photographer, Jeff Burton and they give off a unique feel.
Tissot has spent years establishing a reputation as the “Innovators by tradition”, and that philosophy is echoed in this new, fresh campaign. Of course Tissot recognizes they have gained the loyalty of their customers, and they applaud you die hard Tissot fans…but the savvy Swiss watchmaker is attempting to gain new recognition and popularity among the masses. This global ad campaign being launched in March 2010 is Tissot’s invitation to all who haven’t explored to do so. Some of the articles will even include prices of their timepieces, designed to entice those who thought Tissot was out of their budget.
Jeff Burton chose specific locations for each shoot which would give a glimpse into the personal lives of the ambassador, such as Danica Patrick’s shoot on the majestic Malibu beach.
There is no denying that Tissot watches are high quality Swiss-made instruments. Tissot has built a well-respected brand name through innovative technologies, like their T-Touch technology. Bringing their innovative craftsmanship from the Swiss town of Le Locle, in the Jura Mountains, to over 150 countries is no small feat and Tissot has accomplished this. The quality that has always run so deep in Tissot’s history built their reputation…the fresh ways in which Tissot markets their timepieces, keeps them interesting and growing as a company.
Matching themselves up with high profile Ambassadors in the fields of MotoGP, fencing, championship cycling, and ice hockey has set Tissot apart and given them an edge in promoting their high-tech products. The company, a member of the Swatch group, is also the Official Timekeepers for NASCAR…pretty impressive. Yes, Tissot has been very successful at marketing their precision instruments, through a variety of ingenious ways, but the real reason they thrive and prosper is their dedication to excellence. The company has been determined to produce an ever growing line of precision instruments that are made with careful craftsmanship. Tissot’s perpetual quality and innovative style is what keeps their customers loyal and coming back. This new advertising campaign will open up new markets for the watchmaker and, hopefully bring new clients to them as well.
