Tubular Tuesdays: Timepieces in the Shop

Welcome back from the long weekend readers! Today’s post has been taken over by yellow gold fever with a few of the current timepieces in the shop. Yellow gold is making a comeback with its arm tones and luxe look, and these 5 watches are our top tick-picks for your wrists.

Patek Philippe 3671 18K Yellow Gold Square Watch

In 1845 Antoni Patek joined with the French watchmaker Adrien Philippe and Patek Philippe & Co was founded in 1851.Credited with inventing the watch as we know it, this brand invented the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hand, chronograph, and minute repeater in watches. This 18kt rare gold stunner makes an interesting and classic addition to a watch collection.

Cartier Tank Francaise 18kt Men’s Full Size Watch

 

In 1917, Cartier debuted its Tank watch, inspired by the Renault tanks that Cartier observed during World War I. The Tank Francaise’ s smooth, rounded edges and clean lines set a standard for elegance, while the flawless integration of the bracelet into the watch’s case itself create a unified and uninterrupted tableau of sophistication. The Cartier Tank Francaise is an icon, and a necessity for any complete watch wardrobe.

Rolex Daytona 16528 18kt Mens Watch

This chronograph is named for the famous Rolex 24 at Daytona, and is prized for its accuracy. The Zenith movement featured in the seconds series is considered the best and most accurate of the Chronograph series to date. This increasingly rare yellow gold Daytona is masculine, sporty, precise and above all – elite.

Rolex Day-Date 18038 Presidential White Diamond Dial

Given to President Eisenhower by Rolex, the Day Date model (named so for its day and date display windows at 12 and 3, respectively) earned its nickname the “President.” To this day, several subsequent Commanders-in-Chief have also worn this Presidential model. This specific timepiece stands out with a beautiful white diamond and Roman numeral dial.

Rolex Presidential 179158 18kt

Last, but certainly not least, the Pièce de résistance of Tubular Tuesday is this 2001 Oyster Perpetual Datejust with Tahitian Mother of Pearl and diamond dial and a diamond bezel with diamond accents on the case. This elegant, stunning watch is sure to stand out.

The Rolex Submariner 16610

The Rolex Submariner 16610 is the classic diving watch.  It’s 904L stainless steel case is able to withstand depths up to 300 meters (1,000 feet).  With a 40mm case it is on the larger size for gents watches.  As a standard, men’s watches are usually 36-40 mm.  The Submariner remains one of Rolex’s most popular watches.

Add to this the double row of diamonds encircling the face of the watch, the scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and the diamond dial, and this watch becomes a true collectors piece.

Whether you’re looking to perfectly measure your lap time, or you’re simply a fan of beautiful timepieces, this particular Daytona is in a league of its own. Cased in white gold, the dial is mother of pearl with diamonds, surrounded by a bezel of diamonds, and capped off with a supple black leather band.

Tubular Tuesday – Frances Bean – A New Style Icon Emerging?

Fashion Trends on Tubular Tuesday

It wasn’t long ago that we didn’t even know who Frances Bean Cobain was, other than that she was Courtney Love‘s daughter. Turns out that she has a gorgeous, almost timeless beauty… well, that is what recent internet frenzy photos have shown us. Either she’s stunning or she found the best photographer on the planet. Or both!

Frances has a working in black and white that would humble even the hottest calendar pin-up girl. So she’s covered in tattoos and smoking while looking completely strung out… Her father was Kurt Cobain after all,  she wasn’t going to be winning any “clean living” awards. The naughtiness actually seems to work for her. And us.

Haunting and heated, we are dazzled by Frances’ photos and we aren’t surprised she is already being called the “it girl”. If Frances has any obstacles at all, they might be summed up in one word, “mom”. Courtney is already chiming in and cashing in on Frances attention, let’s hope she handles the future with some decorum and tact. Come on Courtney, you can do it!

Here’s the question, will this last or is Frances a splash in a hot pan? What do you think. Here’s the photos, you tell us!

Teen Choice Awards, Not Just For Teens Anymore!

This is an Awards Carpet full of risk and fashion chance, which is why it’s becoming one of America’s favorite carpets to keep an eye on. And don’t let the name “Teen Choice Awards” fool you, either. This is anything but just a teen awards show as year after year bigger and heavier Hollywood hitters swarm the show.

Here’s some of what was to be seen ~

The Kardashian Klan, altogether, it’s either impossible for this picture to look good, or it’s impossible for it to look bad. I guess it depends on how you feel about Khloe‘s Roberto Cavalli creation (left). What do you think, did Roberto pull off the print?

With legs and a head of hair like that, Cat Deeley can get away with a lot, which is lucky for her ~

Lucy Hale

OK, Cengiz Abazogla designed this dress. For an obscure designer, what do you think? Will he remain obscure?

Cameron Diaz

They should bottle her actions, because Cameron is on fire! How is it even possible to look this good in every photo? It even seems as if her tabloid pictures are airbrushed. Seriously! How? Shown here in an A.L.C. dress.

Whatever you think of the line up, they are making smart Hollywood decisions by appearing on the teen awards.

I personally think this is the best way for actors and actresses to expand their viewing demographic in the blink of an eye. Appearing on this show says, “come see my movies too!” to the shows demographic… or better yet , it tells Hollywood casting agents “Hey, start putting me in shows that appeal to this demographic!”

What is the IT color?

What is the IT color?

ALL OF THEM! Every where I look, COLOR, COLOR, and more COLOR! I’m finding color where once color wasn’t! First designer handbags, then watches, what’s next? Socks, tennis shoes, and sunglasses! Maybe in this cold, grey environment with all financial and global turmoil, we need to see sunshine and rainbows when we can’t find our spirit any where else? Well then, good for us!

Rolex, Cartier and even some amazing great colors on David Yurman cocktail rings!  These are fashion forward styles, but found a retailer on EBay that helps all of us everyday people. Check out this site:

Rolex has COLOR!

http://stores.ebay.com/RLJ-Designer-Jewelry-and-Watches

Color everywhere!  I see color in shoes never seen before! Who knew florescent yellow could be such a great spring color to wear with something as casual as jeans! Almost anything goes!

Even in the luggage business! Something as laptop sleeves and carriers, they are not just black or brown anymore! When we want to make a statement, we don’t want to stop with our clothes or shoes, we take it all the way!!!

In the kitchen, we see color in knives, in our mixing bowls and in our Kitchen Aids.  I hope we never see this trend end, because I feel like my eyes just can’t get enough of COLOR!

Pink: But not just any pink! Honeysuckle pink (a bright, almost reddish hue) was voted the color of the year by Pantone

Ever so Awesome Emma Stone Rocks August Cover of Vanity Fair

It’s the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways..
It’s still rock & roll to me.

And in closing for today…

Vanity Fair Cover: Emma Stone August 2011

Emma Stone, one of the most hilarious and just plain cool broads ever know to mankind… Will be sizzling on the July cover of Vanity Fair.

The Actress known for her roles in films like ‘Easy A‘, ‘Zombieland‘, ‘House Bunny‘ and a few more instant classics like ‘Superbad‘ tries to play down just how hot she is.

It’s obviously not working, Emma..

But your humility makes you even more adorable! 🙂

Stone’s in not one, but three flicks this summer: ‘The Help,’ ‘Friends With Benefits’ and ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’

“Talking about this stuff is pretty new,” she said when asked about her love life.

Stone, who recently broke up with actor Kieran Culkin, is rumored to be dating her ‘Spider-Man’ co-star Andrew Garfield, but the pair have remained mum on the subject.

Stone, like a true Hollywood pro, reveals that “the only solution I’ve come to when it comes to things like that — the health of my family or dating, really personal things — is not to talk about it.” – From: ‘Emma Stone’s Bad Habits: Sugar, Wine and Heroin‘ By Kelly Fisher

Kate Middleton Keeps Shining at 10th Annual ARK Gala Dinner in a Jenny Packham Gown

Kate Middleton Shows Off Her Royal Style's Staying Power!

Kate Middleton glimmered in a soft glow, illuminated by her Jenny Packham gown at Kensington Palace during the 10th Annual 10th Annual ARK Gala Dinner. The Duchess exhibited ‘exquisite grace’ and a flawless style at the event, keeping fashionista enthusiasts excited about Kate!

The Royal beauty stepped a bit outside the very traditional, conservative garment box she’s been safely sticking to since the Royal Wedding. This glittering gown was a style smash, a great one, leaving an impressed response from all those who had a sneak peak of Kate at the Gala Dinner.

Prince William and Catherine

When we first reported on Kate’s ‘Something Borrowed‘ and the controversial tiara that we were so pleased to see her wear, I believe the world had barely a clue what an impressive little fashionista they had in their hands… A ROYAL fashionista!  They say men tend to look for certain qualities in their future wives that they embraced from their Mother. In this case, I believe a young Prince William recognized the creative fashion and jewelry designs created by his Mother, Princess Diana, as he’s married a stylish, spirited woman with grace and genuine charm. The likeability factor is undeniable. She’s a perfect addition to the Royal Family.

Let’s not forget about the gorgeous younger sister…

Pippa Middleton!

Pippa Middleton: Fashionista Sister

Pippa Middleton

Dots Press had the following to say about Pippa, who just completed in the Highland Cross Challenge, a 50-mile duathlon.

When it comes to fashion, Pippa Middleton is a true professional. She knows how to match and perfectly accessorize her outfits. Sometimes using the same handbags, over and over again.

For Middleton sisters, money was never a problem. But they choose not to spend a fortune on clothes and accessories, as other children from reach families.

Moreover, Pippa was seen in public lately wearing the same three handbags: one cream, one gray, and one brown. Bristol’s Modalu, the British maker of the handbags, renamed them after her and then created a purse to make the set complete.

Pippa, the Royal Sister, looks to be another Fashionista on the Royal rise, as rumors of romance between herself and Prince Harry begin to build a momentous buzz.
