Chanel Boyfriend Black Dial Steel Watch Collection

Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

There aren’t many real reasons in today’s world one would actually wear a watch, I mean, even for me, my iPhone is my immediate go-to if I need to check on the time whenever I’m not wearing a timepiece on my wrist. But strangely (and I tried this a couple of times) when there’s a watch on me, I would inadvertently glance at my wrist if I need to check on what time it is. In other words, it’s instinctive, like my brain is pre-conditioned to do it almost naturally.

Maybe I’m old-school that way (ok, ok, just old), but I would think most of you out there would agree with me (and be doing the same thing most of the time). And if that’s truly so, I’m also pretty sure most of you would agree that what we wear on the wrist is important too, a watch that’s at the very least a) aesthetically-pleasing, b) tells time accurately and of course c) must have a backstory that we all can relate to.

Which brings me to Chanel Horlogerie‘s new timepiece offering, the Boyfriend. The watch itself isn’t new, but for 2016 it’s offered for the first time in steel. Yes, the bezel is all steel, a material that’s not only hardwearing but extremely sleek as well. Shaped like an octagon, it’s also an iconic shape that’s familiar to fans of Chanel, a masculine take on the Première watch, the stopper on the fragrance No.5 and a tribute to the layout of Place Vendôme in Paris.

A beautifully elegant timepiece, this particular incarnation of Chanel’s Boyfriend is also perfect for the independent woman of today, and one who appreciates its strong lines, refined design and of course, that signature shape. Available in two variations: one’s simply in steel (SGD6150) while the other comes bejewelled with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (price on application). Guaranteed to give you that extra spring in your step, you can skip on down to Chanel’s Fine Jewellery & Watches boutique at Ngee Ann City for a closer look at your potential new Boyfriend.

JAMES BOND SPECTRE OMEGA AQUA TERRA 150M LIMITED EDITION WATCH

Jewelry & Watches

James Bond Spectre Aqua Terra 150M Limited Edition Watch

The long awaited new James Bond film ‘Spectre’ is fast approaching its premiere release date on the silver screen, and it’s always important for the 00 Agent to look the best whilst tackling any super villain intent on world domination, so he will naturally be donning his now trademark Omega watch.

A new design of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m has been released to coincide with the motion picture. A beautiful silver watch with dark a blue face featuring a monogram of the Bond family coat of arms. The same symbol is also on the tip of the second hand, which is in a vibrant yellow, matching the numbers and text.

The most striking feature, which is also unique to this limited edition time piece, is on the reverse – the oscillating weight is in the shape of a gun barrel including the bullet, which is iconic to Bond in the opening credits of nearly all of the movies.

A new feature included in the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is the Master Co-Axial calibre 8507 which allows magnetic field resistance up to 15,007 gauss, which of course is a little nod to the MI6 spy.

This self winding automatic watch comes in a fantastic collectors case which just adds to the allure. The production is limited to 15,007 pieces and each watch will have the individual number etched on the reverse. The James Bond Limited Edition Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m Watch is available to purchase now, so don’t miss out.

THE BVLGARI LVCEA WATCH IS TIMELESS

Jewelry & Watches

The gorgeous and timeless Bvlgari LVCEA Watch

Everybody knows that BVLGARI is a brand that oozes class and as a luxury fashion blog, we wanted to share with you one of their iconic timepieces. The BVLGARI LVCEA Watch collection is simply stunning, sophisticated and elegant in every way. It comes in numerous different colour combinations, sizes and designs, but one thing is certain and that’s the fact that it will look beautiful on your wrist.

The LVCEA watches come in both quartz and automatic movements, varying with which size you buy. The quartz is the 28mm case size while the automatic is the 33mm size. Coming in white gold, yellow gold and rose gold, set with a pink cabochon-cut stone and diamond for the adjustment system. I think the pink is what really sets these LVCEA watches apart from the others on the market, it makes them unique and absolutely gorgeous. My favourite watch is the stainless steel striped face watch, I love the way the pink just pops against it!

Some of the watches have a mother of pearl dial while others have a striped design, some have diamonds as the numbers while others don’t. One of the most unique points about the BLVGARI LVCEA collection though is that they combine the metals in one, so if you prefer more of a bold and stand out piece, why not opt for the rose gold and white gold time piece? I can’t wait to take an in depth look at these beauties next weekend in the store! You can watch the campaign for the watch by clicking here, but we would love to know what you think of these watches? Do you own one? You can shop the Blvgari LVCEA Watch online at Selfridges.

PIAGET ROSE CELEBRATES VALENTINES DAY WITH A NEW COLLECTION

Jewelry & Watches

G0A29112

While the rose is the ultimate expression of love, the Piaget Rose collection lets you express that love bigheartedly. This Valentine’s Day, the Yves Piaget rose will be showcased with several jewelry pieces as part of the Piaget Rose collection.

G34UU300
The very feminine and sophisticated rose is expressed in a lacework rose pendant, with a delicate cut out flower in rose gold set with brilliant diamonds that enhances the skin beneath. A smaller rose bud pendant opens up gracefully to reveal a brilliant diamond among its glistening petals. The pendants can be gifted separately or paired with a dentelle rose bracelet, a modern interpretation of the signature bloom in a lacework set with a single brilliant-cut diamond. The ring features an iridescent pearl, set opposite the rose with diamond petals that play off each other. The earring is a rose with a central sparkling stone and a white pearl hanging from the radiant flower. There is also an asymmetric necklace with a line of diamonds and pearls which can be worn in different ways. Completing the set is the Limelight Blooming Rose watch in white gold with its four gem-set petals that open up when the uppercase is swiveled around to reveal four new diamond-paved petals. The Piaget Rose secret watch set comes fitted with 668 diamonds that sits above the dial covering. The timepiece is set in white gold with a contrasting black strap or yellow gold with a white satin strap.

Piaget has created a special timepiece for that special man in your life too. A Piaget watch from the Altiplano collection, the timepiece comes in white gold with a clean silver dial and 430P hand-wound mechanical movement – a watchmaking classic. The Piaget Altiplano Chronograph hosts a major horological complication inside its refined pink gold case. The Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P is a mechanical watch that invisibly merges a hand-wound calibre with the elements of a case skillfully designed as a single entity, making it super sleek at just 3.65 mm thin. It also boasts to be the world’s thinnest automatic movement at just 3 mm thick, housed in a record-breaking rose gold 6.36 mm case.

Paddle8: The Midas Touch

Jewelry & Watches

Paddle8

I’ve been addicted to auctions ever since I started shopping on eBay in 1999. I love the thrill of the chase, and the stakes just got higher with Paddle8. This high-end auction house also calls the internet and app store home, only it specializes in art, design, and now jewelry and watches. Have pieces you don’t wear anymore? Submit photos and details of the jewels via Paddle8’s easy-to-use form, and an expert specialist will provide you with a complimentary auction estimate. When you choose to go ahead and put it up, the item will be placed into auction under a marketing umbrella, be that one with a specific theme, a celebrity curator, etc.; so it’s not being throw in carelessly with hundreds of other pieces that potential buyers would need to sift through. Best of all, the fee is the lowest in the industry at a simple 8%. Then if it doesn’t sell, the jewel is still yours!

There’s also, of course, the buying end of this. One woman’s gilded junk is another’s treasure! Shopping at auction is like a sport for my friend and me. We wait until the last hour, watching our prey, then swoop in during the final 10 minutes with our maximum bid. This way none of the other vultures know you’re watching (you can keep track of the lot with e-mail alerts). Right now, I’ve got my eye on the Midas Touch, a curated collection of gold jewelry available for bid online or on their app now through the 22nd. You can get anything from Tiffany to Hermès, and at decent prices. Paddle 8 focuses on products in the $1,000 – $100,000 market; it’s like a chic version of mass auctions and also a more modern take on classic auction houses. This is luxury shopping made simple. Download the app ASAP!
