Timeless Elegance: Henry London Watches

One of my favorite memories of my grandfather was his when he built chess boards and pieces, everything had to be precisely timed (my grandfather was a precise man), which meant constantly paying attention to his watch, a vintage timepiece that was double-domed (this terminology I would learn long after he passed away). To this day, vintage watches, especially those that have double-domed lenses remind me of him, so you can imagine our excitement when we were introduced to the beautifully crafted line of luxury Henry London Watches, a stunning range of timepieces that brings together vintage and modern design.

HENRY-LONDON-WATCHES

It’s no surprise that the Henry London Watches remind me of my grandfather, the classic British timepieces have a bit of a magical beginning. While exploring London’s many vintage districts searching for inspiration, the brand’s founders, two already successful fashion designers came upon an old, beautifully styled, classic Swiss wristwatch with the words “Henry, August 1965” engraved on the case back. Although time had its toll on the vintage timepiece, the designers were inspired by the attention to the details that could only be found in high-end, luxury watches, and started to think about the possibilities of reinventing Henry’s watch for today’s generation……….and thus, Henry London was born.

HENRY-LONDON-WATCHES2

Henry London has thirteen stylish collections (Chiswick, Edgware, Finchley, Hammersmith, Hampstead, Harrow, Highgate, Holborn, Knightsbridge, Pimlico, Richmond, Stratford, and Westminster), nine of which we’ve featured today, all named after iconic locations in London. These watches, which are available in 25mm, 30mm, 39mm, 41mm case sizes, are a tribute to Henry’s original watch from 1965 with an emphasis on the watchmaking heritage. The classic proportions of the case flow seamlessly into a high double-domed lens, accentuating the subtle curves of the domed dials, which are available in a variety of colors. The Henry London Watches feature an elongated seconds hand that’s curved with an arched tip, and raised hour markers, in addition to its conventional hour, minute and seconds hands. Some watch styles also boast three sub-dials, and a calendar window at either 3 o’clock, or at the 6 o’clock positions which change at midnight. Wristbands for the watches are available in a soft, stitched leather, or a self-adjustable, Milanese mesh bracelet.

In keeping in line with the tradition of the original henry watch engraving, Henry London offers a bespoke case back that allows its customers to personalize their watch thanks to their engraving service. We were quite lucky to have a Henry London Watch engraved and in honor of our dear grandad, we got out name…..his last name. Check out the engraving below:

We’ve seen an increase in our generation wearing watches and we find ourselves wanting to wear one more often. The luxury watch brand recently launched nationwide at Nordstrom and Anthropologie, and at www.henrylondon.com. Do you find yourself wearing watches more? What do you think of the Henry London Watches? Do you have a favorite style?

Glam Rock Watches’s Miami Beach Art Deco Collection

Luxury Watch brand, Glam Rock Watches has introduced an elegant, uber-feminine and captivating timepiece collection inspired by Miami Beach’s Art Deco and modern Architectural heritage. The Miami Beach Art Deco Collection embodies a graceful, vintage spirit, intriguing beauty and is defined by a range of delicate cases in an assortment of shapes including round, square, rectangular and barrel; all which boasts natural curves, sleek lines and sophisticated level of chic allure.

The luxe playful collection features skinny bands reminiscent of vintage glamour but with modern touches – yellow and rose gold bracelets, silicone straps, mesh and expandable bracelets, beaded and pearl-embellished threads, and croc-embossed leather with candy-colored dials that are evocative of the iconic buildings on historic Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. I must say that though I am a fan of just about all of Glam Rock’s watches, I find myself completely enamored with the slim silhouettes in this collection; they all look like heirloom timepieces and they speak volumes as unique statement accessories.

“We have always been flirting with the idea of creating watches that are true fashion accessories”, says Glam Rock Watches Founder and designer, Enrico Margaritelli. “MB Art Deco’s retro aesthetic expands the concept of mixing and matching within the world of watches for an ever-changing, always sophisticated look. This new smaller, feminine, and vintage inspired collection makes a huge statementin the fashion timepiece category.”




If I had to choose a MUST-HAVE out of all the styles, it would definitely be the edgy one shown directly above (though I keep going back and forth on the color). The black is so chic and timeless but rose gold is oh so beautiful and so on trend right now Which would you pick as your favorite?

The Miami Beach Art Deco Collection will range from $175.00 – $ 225.00.

Glam Rock Watches Newest Collections

I had the pleasure of getting really up close and personal with Glam Rock Watches (I tried quite a few on) and also had the pleasure of getting better acquainted with the line and their newest collection from Founder and Owner, Enrico Margaritelli. The collection is amazing and the Just Click Technology of Glam Rock Watches is ingenious. I drooled throughout the entire presentation…..when you feast your eyes on the photos below, you will understand why

You may remember I previously covered Glam Rock Watches, specifically their Sobe Collection – reminisce a little by clicking HERE. With Glam Rock Watches’s innovative and sophistication, you have the ability to change the band and the case cover to whatever you desire. Go from a sleek black patent leather band and silver case cover to an animal print band and gold case cover or add a bit of diamonds for some sparkle – all in the same watch.

You can match your entire wardrobe without having to buy several different watches. Go from bold color to all white and anything in between if you so desire.

For example, this holiday season, if you’d like to add a bit of shine, just add either the metallic silver or gold leather bands and coordinating case cover (featured in the photo below)

The possibilities are endless with Glam Rock Watches, all you need in one watch and a collection of these (see below)

But why not get first hand knowledge on Glam Rock Watches and the Just Click Technology from the creator himself, Enrico Margaritelli in the video below:

Mauboussin’s Launches E-boutique and Amour, Viens Voir si la Rose Watch

Every woman deserves to spoil herself every once and a while. She should buy herself a new pair of shoes, a new dress or, best of all, jewelry. Recently, I had the opportunity to preview some fabulous jewelry from Mauboussin that will help a woman feel, and look good, as she rewards herself for everything she does daily.

Mauboussin launched a new e-boutique dedicated to its e-commerce business. The site features some of its most exquisite pieces of jewelry that will make you giddy with delight. From earrings to rings to necklaces to watches this luxury brand has captured the essence of class and timeliness in each of its pieces. Here are a few of my favorites – Bonbon Bleu Ring, Perle d’Or mon Amour Ring, Amour, viens voir si la rose (newly launched) and Je le Veux 5 Rows Ring.

To celebrate the launch of the e-boutique, Mauboussin held a raffle of the gorgeous Amour, Nuit Coquine, Nuit Câline Watch and wouldn’t you know it, dear friend and fellow blogger, Lisa Bensley of Beauty by Benz won the $545 watch (lucky girl) – her shell shocked (and delayed reaction to her name announcement) was priceless and hilarious – we’re all quite jealous

During Watch Market Week, the luxury watch company launched the Amour, Viens Voir si la Rose Watch – an exquisite stainless steel watch with pink dial and white mop on the bezel, white enamel crown and 0.13cts diamonds on dial and bezel, pink satin strap and deployment buckle that comes in both a round and square face

To see more of the Mauboussin collections visit http://www.mauboussin.us. You won’t be disappointed.

Glam Rock SoBe Watch Collection

Since its launch, Glam Rock Watches has consistently been a celebrity-driven brand with fans that include Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian, Fergie, Audrina Patridge, Josh Duhamel and many NBA and NFL stars. Glam Rock Watches are the creation of Enrico Margaritelli and Isabelle Maujean who created these chic and sophisticated watches in 2005 for the self-assured luxury watch wearer. The avant-garde timepieces boast Swiss movement and French and Italian leathers, but the overall style of the brand is inspired by the Miami waterfront lifestyle. This is no surprise because Glam Rock is a Miami-based luxury watch brand but the added appeal of their watches is each watch has easily interchangeable straps and covers. Their new “SoBe Collection” for example, has a quick way to change the look of the watch, making the number of possible combinations virtually limitless. I am in love with the first watch below, how gorgeous is this chocolate beauty.


Each style comes with three different case covers to get you started (gold, silver and rose gold) and features Just Click System, the Glam Rock exclusive and patented system that makes the watches interchangeable with just a click of your finger

Straps are available in rich colors and exotic textures like genuine python, alligator and lizard skins, patent leather straps and alligator-embossed silicon for select athletic models, as well as more traditional stainless steel bracelets. Case covers are available in many colors with the option to add diamonds. It gives you freedom to decide how you want your watch to reflect your own personality. Just as these previously named celebs are showing heir personality with their Glam Rock Watches
