Does anyone still wear a watch?
iPhone's, Blackberry's and cellphones have recently become our go-to personal time-keeping devices, but why are we denying ourselves the classic proclamation of personal style, that wearing a watch represents. Not only will it be your most useful accessory, but the right watch, can say just as much about you as your favourite handbag or pair of earrings.
We had three of our PIE Media Group girls, Lindsey, Jenni and Amanda, try some of the newest styles from the Fall/Winter 2011 VERSACE watch collection. Can you say candid camera?
Lindsey couldn't slip this watch on fast enough. Refined and streamlined are her favourite words to describe this style. She loved the white Mother of Pearl dial with the signature Medusa head and four beautiful diamonds on the face. The strap caught her eye for it's subtle quality. Two stainless steel concentric circles create the target-look on this watch. The inner ring is embellished with crystals and outer ring actually rotates on an axel, adding a fun touch for the wearer.
Always on the hunt for the perfect statement piece, Jenni found a friend in this ostentatious watch style. One of her favourite aspects was the consistent rose gold features - from the hands, to the solid Medusa in the face and the linked bracelet-style strap - that give this watch a more masculine feel. The icing on the cake for her though, was the uniquely divided face. The lower-half where the posh roman numerals are placed, is made completely of white enamel and guilloche finishing in the upper-half. Stylish and reliable, this watch boasts traditional swiss quartz movement.
For a more timeless and feminine look, Amanda went for this classy timepiece to compliment her personal style. The elegant colour combo that comes from the stainless steel face - embossed with the VERSACE logo - and black enamel insert that houses the clock itself, will lend itself to any wardrobe. Keeping true to minimal style, the bracelet and casing made of silver is the perfect finishing touch on this glamorous accessory.
