Looking for a luxury watch for yourself or a significant other? Figuring out which brand and style can be a daunting task. It is important to find a watch that meets your sense of style that represents you well. For Michele Watches, one way this luxury brand helps consumers choose the perfect watch is through Trunk Shows held at high-end department and jewelry stores each year. For the month of February, Michele Watches will be featured at Trunk Shows primarily in Florida, with stops in Indianapolis, New York, and Palo Alto, California.

 

Michele Watches can trace its history back to the 1940s in Belgium with watchmaker Maurice Barouh. Maurice passed on his expertise to his son Jack. When Jack and his wife Rita had a daughter, Michele, this lead to Jack designing children’s watches. In 2000, Michele Watches was officially launched as a brand. Based in South Florida, the firm has featured Michele Barouch (for whom the brand is named), as creative director. In 2002, her brother Jeremy joined the company on the business side, making Michele Watches a truly family affair. In 2004, Michele Watches was acquired by Fossil, although the Barouch family still runs the brand.

 

Michele Watches runs Trunk Shows, a way to view the latest timepieces and accessories as well as speak with Michele sales experts. Occasionally, Michele Barouch herself will be present at these shows. One of the highlights of the Michele Trunk Shows is the opportunity to see and purchase items that are exclusive to the show and not available anywhere else. Some of the pieces that are exclusive to the upcoming 2012 Michele Trunk Shows include timepieces in the Caber Diamond, CSX-36, Jetway, and Sport Sail Collections.

Those of you not familiar with Michele should certainly update yourselves! Michele Watches was founded in Belgium in 1940 and Maurice Barouh believed “that a watch is not merely a timepiece but an expression of life.” His belief in quality and refinement was passed on to his son Jack, who named the company after his daughter. The company originally started out making children’s watches but after great success decided to expand. The third generation of the family, Michele and Jeremy, have kept true to the beliefs, quality and details their grandfather was passionate about. The launch and success of the CSX Diamond chronograph Michele watch brought the company into the U.S. spotlight.

If you have never seen a Michele watch, attending the trunk show will be a pure delight! Michele watches come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Maybe you prefer diamond cases?

All of their designs are desirable and artistic. They will definitely appeal to those individuals who love fashion as they are recognized as one of the leading fashion brands. The supplies Michele uses for the straps are drawn from many different resources. The collection of straps on Michele watches are known for their blend of quality and color. Michele makes sure their brand is aware of shifting fashion and changes in the industry. These new styles are introduced into their collections through a wide array of materials and designs. This blend is truly a work of magic.

Michele also allows its customers to customize their own watch. You just select the case you desire and then the strap. Simple! And if you prefer, you can also swap your strap with a different watch case! There is a strap for any event. Here’s just a few:
