Michele Watches release Tropical Paradise Collection

Michele Watches have a new line of women’s timepieces that are being released at the end of February.  Entitled the Tropical Paradise Collection, the line arrives just in time for the beginning of the summer shopping season.

Michele Tropical Sea Turtle Watch

Michele’s Tropical Paradise Collection consists of three watches.  Each watch is based on a different animal that is featured in a scene set in the dial.  To accompany these elaborate pictures, each watch is fitted with a set of diamonds on the dial and case, as well as a color-coordinated strap.  The Tropical Paradise Monkey watch comes with 51 diamonds, totaling 0.34 ct, and a golden alligator strap.  The Tropical Paradise Sea Turtle watch has 53 diamonds, totaling 0.35 ct, and a turquoise alligator strap.  The Tropical Paradise Fish watch is fitted with 56 diamonds, totaling 0.36 ct, and a hot pink alligator strap.

Each watch in the Tropical Paradise Collection can be fitted with any strap Michele offers.  All three feature a date window and the red Michele logo.  The watches have white enamel dials, 36 mm cases, sapphire crystals, accurate Swiss movements, and are water resistant to 5 ATM.

The watches in Michele’s Tropical Paradise Collection are the perfect watches for any beach-loving lady.  The wide range of strap options means that women of all style persuasions can make these watches suit their particular tastes, and the fun tropical themes make these timepieces great for a summer day out in the sun.

Michele Watches Tahitian Ceramic Ladies Watch

michele pink ceramic watchMichele Watches are just one of many companies that have latched onto the trend of ceramic watches.  Although most people think of ceramic as a very fragile material, watchmakers are using new technology that allows it to become a durable and scratch-resistant surface, which can be used as a practical yet fashionable material for luxury watches.  This extremely hard material is so strong, it can even be used in bullet-proof body armor, so don’t let the word ceramic fool you.

Companies like Chanel, IWC and Wittnauer have released their own versions of the ceramic watch, but the one from Michele Watches really captures the essence of this new material.  Using a color scheme inspired by the pearls of the South Pacific, a date window and three-eye chronograph lend practicality and function to this otherwise sporty and fashionable watch.  The opaque pink ceramic band is attractive and lightweight.

Michele Watches ladies’ pink ceramic watch (model # MWW12A000004) is sculptural in design, with a 35mm diameter case, lacquer dial, clasp deployment, and pink ceramic bracelet.  It is crafted with the finest Swiss quartz movement, and is water resistant to 165 feet.  Each Michele timepiece exudes the ageless glamour and modern simplicity that has become the hallmark of the brand

Breitling Beats the Others

Well, our poll results are in and according to our members, fans and blog readers, the favored luxury watch brand for 2009 is Breitling!

As you can see here in this picture of a Breitling for Bentley GMT model, Breitlings are top of the line in terms of craftmanship and complexity; the latter being what the Breitling brand was founded on and continues to put first and foremost.breitling-bentley-gmt

Breitling came in with 32%, followed by Omega with 27%, Cartier with 18%, Michele with 14% and lastly, Panerai with 9%.

I’m a bit surprised with the results to be honest with you; I would have thought that something more traditional like Cartier watches (especially with holidays purchases spiking specific interest) would have come in closer to the top. But that’s why the “people’s voice” is so great! YOU tell US what you think is the best and then we know.

Breitling is a definite favorite among celebrities and perhaps some of this public attention swayed your vote. Celebs like John Travolta, Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and Dave Chapell love their Breitlings. Seen the video?

Whether you voted for Breitling as #1 or not, you can always find your dream watch with us and many times we run special promotions on already super low prices, so stay tuned. 2010 is the year to know what time it is!

Michele Watches: For Today’s Woman

The heritage of Michele watches is based on the vibrant colors and sultry lifestyle of one of America’s hottest cities: Miami. Miami ranks high in luxury vacation destinations, night life, fine dining and beautiful people, all attributes that the watch brand Michele seeks to embody in their watches.Michele Urban Diamond

With diamond encrusted cases, mother of pearl dials, Art deco inspired design and bold strap colors, Michele watches are all that today’s women is about: strength, fashion and the confidence to say “look at me.”

Michele may be the only watch brand that makes watches exclusively for women. One may think that this wasn’t a smart business decision considering that the luxury watch market is mostly made up of men and men’s watches, but that would be a mistake. The Michele brand understands women and is able to create and offer beautiful luxury women’s watches that do not cost a fortune.

In addition to fabulous looking watches, and the fact that Michele only makes women’s watches, perhaps the other thing the company wants to be noted for are their watch straps. All Michele watches come with interchangeable straps, allowing the wearer to change looks; dress it up or dress it down. Materials for their straps come from all over the world, and include alligator, python, and calfskin leathers. During fashion season, Michele takes note of new trends and then releases new straps “in a fashionable spectrum of colors, textures, and finishes.”

There are nine collections of Michele watches and within each collection come many different watches to choose from. Let’s take the Urban Collection for example. (The Urban Diamond Black Diamond Dial Stainless Steel Bracelet is pictured). The Urban motto is: “Retro style, downtown glamour.” Within the Urban Collection are 51 different watches! Each watch features the red MW logo located at the 12 o’clock position and large, modern numerals and bold hands.

Experience the luxury of Michele watches and find the one that best fits you, today’s woman.

Today’s woman is chic, sexy and bold.
