Michele Watches are one of the hottest brands in timepieces right now. They’re fun, stylish, and have more models than fashion week. Whether your style is sleek and clean, funky and bohemian, or ready for summer, Michele has you covered. Take this limited edition Seaside Starfish watch for instance – it’s gorgeous in bright polished stainless steel, a tightly woven bracelet and a diamond studded bezel, but the enamel and diamond sealife depicted on its silver bezel are whimsical fun. This watch is perfect for a weekend in usually sunny South Florida – if all this rain is keeping you away from the ocean, just stare down at your wrist instead and imagine which seaside ensemble you’ll wear it with next. One one hand, you’ve got this sultry Vix Baoba Carmen bikini with a funky abstract stripe pattern and gold & leather accents. On the other, you’ve got that trendy one piece L*Space fringe suit. We can’t choose, but it’s your weekend, your choice!
This week we’re showing off one of our more unique watches – this Philip Stein Teslar Mini pave diamond dial watch. Philip Stein was founded in 2002 and set out to be more than just a watch brand; each Philip Stein watch is embedded with Natural Frequency technology designed to enhance your well being while still maintaining a beautiful appearance on the wrist – this watch is no exception.
A dual timezone dial features subdials stacked, rather than centered on a larger dial. Oh, and it’s also covered in diamonds.
Surrounding the gorgeous silver and pave dial is a neatly paved diamond bezel. The stainless steel case’s undulating curves give this watch a distinctly unique and feminine shape before it gives way to a beautiful satin mocha strap.
The case back shows off how the frequency based technology that “replicate the Earth’s natural frequency, as well as other natural frequencies, many wearers report positive benefits and an overall improvement in their well-being.”

The four watch models of the Pontos Collection include the Pontos Extreme, Pontos S Diver, Pontos S and the Pontos Chronographe. The Pontos Extreme has a rugged and sporty look, and comes in three different eye-catching colors. According to Maurice Lacroix, the “automatic three-counter chronograph mechanism follows the rhythm of the oscillations of its ML112 caliber”. This feature and others make the Pontos Extreme an ideal timepiece for outdoor adventures.
The easy to wear and read Pontos S Diver is a professional diving instrument. This watch is water resistant up to depths of 600 meters, and is designed to withstand harsh diving environments. The Pontos S is all about natural sportsmanship. Divers, athletes and astronauts value this model for its modern style and functionality. It is water resistant up to 200 meters, lightweight and reliable for outdoor use. The Pontos Chronographe is operated by a Valjoux 7750 caliber, and is perfect for short time measurement.

Maison Martin Margiela G-Schock Collab…Shocks
For about 30 years, Casio has been producing their G-Shock line of watches. G-Shock is what it is, a sturdy, durable collection of timepieces at modest prices from a brand that made its name (and fortune) with inexpensive digital watches. Although G-Shock does produce analog watches, most contain at least some digital elements.
G-Shock watches are sometime colorful, generally large, and they do have some premium priced limited edition watches. Don’t get us wrong, they are nice watches and all but imagine our, well, shock when we heard the announcement.
A limited edition Maison Martin Margiela G-Shock is on the way. It is true. The collaboration is apparently in recognition of Casio’s 30 year run with G-Shock. The Paris based designer, known more for its clothing and bags, says in tweets and on Facebook that more details will come on March 28th.

G-Shock will get (and already is getting) some buzz about the collaboration but what is in it for the French designer that has so carefully crafted its brand? Perhaps that is the point. To be TRULY edgy in this fast changing world of marketing, one needs to take risks, and Maison Martin Margiela seems to be taking one here.
We will know more after March 28th, but what are your thoughts? Is this a partnership that appears to be a reach, or is it edgy marketing at its best? Be sure to tell us what you think!

Burberry has long been known for their fashionable items and accessories, so it should come as no surprise that the fashion brand is looking to expand their line of luxury watches at BaselWorld. In a departure from their very popular fashion line, Burberry watches are expanding their fine timepieces.
Burberry is looking to keep the actual watches themselves under wrap until they’re ready for launch. All we know at this point is that we can expect a big marketing campaign that emphasizes the brand’s history of innovation and the long-running heritage of the British fashion maker.
When the brand first debuted their Britain watches late last year, the high-end consumer world was stunned by the exquisite quality and appearance of the timepieces. We don’t know what the new watches look like, but we can be sure that the line will be associated with the same class, style and elegance as everything else put out by the brand.
Anyone looking to be there at the premiere will want to book their trip quick. BaselWorld is going to be packed with media and fashion elite all trying to get first look at the new watches. There’s no telling if there will be any room left for another looky-loo come showtime.
