Kapten & Son Limited Edition PRIDE Watch to Celebrate LGBT Pride Month

In case you didn’t know, tomorrow, June 1st, marks the beginning of LGBT Pride Month.  This month honors the Stonewall riots, which happened in Greenwich Village, at the end of June 1969. This month commemorates all who celebrate, fight for, and love the LGBT community. To celebrate this impactful month, Kapten & Son, the affordable luxury brand that offers adventurous and stylish accessories, is launching a Kapten & Son Limited Edition PRIDE watch to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

Each Kapten & Son limited edition PRIDE watch features a custom rainbow nylon band and stylish stainless steel 316L casing (rose gold or silver), a white or black watch face, and is available in two sizes – Campina at 36mm and Campus at 40mm diameters. This limited-edition watch not only looks very fashionable, it does great work as well (and we’re not referring to its precision timekeeping). 15% of proceeds from the sale of each watch benefiting Heritage of Pride, the non-profit organization that produces New York City’s official LGBT Pride events each year.

“We are grateful to Kapten & Son for their support of our efforts and community,” said Chris Frederick, Managing Director of Heritage of Pride. “The Pride watch is a great way to show your pride and support, through continued visibility for the community, and the funds raised will help support our programming.”

Other features of the Kapten & Son Limited edition PRIDE watch include 7 MM case size,  Ronda 762 quartz movement, and 5 ATM ~50M water­proofness.

Founded in 2014 by three college friends, Artjem Weissbeck, Fabian Deventer and Johannes Theobald, Kapten & Son offers watches and sunglasses designed to be the perfect companion for the global wanderer, celebrating today’s generation and each individual’s unique journey.

The Kapten & Son Limited edition PRIDE watch will be available exclusively online at www.kapten-son.com, ($149.00 for Campina, $159.00 for Campus) starting tomorrow, June 1st. The rainbow watch strap by itself is available for only $19.00 and easily fits other Kapten & Son watches. More than 700 global retailers, including Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Need Supply, and more carry Kapten & Son watches.

Armitron Moms Time Out: Give Gift of Time this Mother’s Day

There are moments when all moms need, is time; time to do all the things she has to do, time to spend with her loved ones, and of course time for herself to relax. Since we don’t have to power to alter or influence time, we can gift mom the next best thing, the gift of stylish timepieces for Mother’s Day. We had the pleasure of attending the Armitron Moms Time Out event with Vera Sweeney, Audrey McClelland, and Actress/Author, Jenna von Oÿ (best known for playing Six LeMeure on NBC’s Blossom), who showcased her latest “Situation Momedy” book. The event celebrated the time moms give to their families (many not taking time for themselves) and the wonderful Armitron Spring 2017 Watch Collection.

Mesh Straps and Luggage-Colored Leather Strap Watches

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?
