Houstonians find time for latest watch trends
With fine design, craftsmanship and materials, designer watches are a must for most people - a final touch to complete an outfit for both men and women. Choosing the newest style can be done at premier shops such as Cartier, Patek Philippe,Chopard, Tiffany & Co. or Tenenbaum.
Not only are such high-end pieces attractive with stunning gems, they can offer multiple features such as a solar time display, star charts and moon phases, with some providing either partial or full in-house movement.
Styles for women are continuing to reflect the growing trend of increased size of women's watches, said Christian Stith,Tenenbaum marketing and public relations representative.
The store, on Post Oak, often has seen women coming to trade a smaller, delicate watch for a larger one.
"The size of the face and in turn the overall dimension of women's watches - or should I say watches women prefer to wear - is substantially larger," Stith said. "Oftentimes we have female clients scoping out the men's watch cases for something that catches their eye."
At the River Oaks District, Chopard's Imperiale and Happy Diamonds collections are customer favorites. With Roman numeral markers and selections of white, yellow and rose gold as well as stainless steel, they are an asset with which to accessorize.
Another popular Chopard item is the L.U.C. XPS Fairmined watch, which presents ethical and elegant luxury with a meteorite dial in a sleek, slate gray.
Other choices for women are from the L.U.C. collection, two of which are the L.U.C XPS 35mm Esprit de Fleurier and The L.U.C Regulator.
The appeal for these sophisticated pieces is evident in the workmanship.
"If anyone has a knack for luxury and watch performance, these can balance as an evening watch or also everyday," saidEddie Banuelas, Chopard sales professional.
Further style ideas
Adorn wrists with leather, satin or rubber wristbands to heighten an outfit, Banuelas said. Mother of pearl dials, amethyst and diamonds are also a possibility.
Most shoppers probably recognize the name of Tiffany & Co., in the Galleria, and seek its heritage as a premier watchmaker for the fine timepiece investment. The company continues to evolve to meet design needs and trends.
The Tiffany CT60 Chronograph and Tiffany CT60 Annual Calendar offer rose gold, black or blue soleil finish, gold poudre numerals, sapphire crystal glass and a colored alligator strap - a most masculine accessory.
