Here’s The Scoop On Apple Watch

Today's highly anticipated Apple event started with news of a partnership with HBO and updates on the iPhone and Mac computers ("Can you even see it? I can't even feel it!" Tim Cook exclaimed while holding Apple's latest Macbook laptop, which weighs just two pounds). Then, the big news: the debut of the Apple…

I Want To Go To There: “Light Is Time” Art Installation Features 80,000 Shiny Watch Parts

"Light Is Time," an art installation that consists of 80,000 watch parts, made its debut at this year's Milan Design Week in April and was on display (in a slightly scaled down form) at Tokyo's SPIRAL Gallery last month. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be on view elsewhere soon (cough…

Check The Time Instantly

I'm pretty much convinced that the photos I take using the Instagram app on my iPhone are, like, high art, so I was stoked to learn about Instawatch, from accessories brand May28th, which turns your Instagram snaps into a watch face. After choosing your photo (you can also upload any non-Instagram photo you want) and…

It’s About Time To Buy A Really Fabulous Watch

I've been looking for a chunky, menswear-inspired watch for awhile now, and this one, with a black tuxedo stripe and ring of rhinestones, might be The One. I'll wear it with a slouchy black V-neck sweater and jeans, and be fashionably on time everywhere I go. [$22, Nordstrom]…

Must Haves: 10 Watches $150 And Under For Keeping Time In Style

When it comes to watches, my priority is not being on time — in fact, I've worn my fair share of broken vintage versions just for the look of them. I can't be alone, right? (Or am I?) Regardless, I covet the hell out of gorgeous, brutally priced timepieces (whether they're functioning or not). Rolex?

Time For An Icy Cool Fashion Statement

The cool minty color of this watch totally reminds me of the "Daiquiri Ice" flavor at Baskin Robbins, which I ordered by accident one time as a child and then started hyperventilating because I was so scared it was going to get me drunk and then I'd get arrested and never be able to become…

Etsy Spotlight: Beautiful Bracelets That Just Happen To Tell Time

An understated timepiece in silver or gold is a classic accessory, sure, but it's also a bit predictable.

We've rounded up some of the most creative handmade watches Etsy sellers have to offer.

Wrap It Up

I am not a frequent watch wearer, but for the last five years or so, I have been lusting after Hermes' Cape Cod watch with the double-wrap band. I keep waiting for the perfect special occasion to splurge on such an expensive timepiece, but it just hasn't arrived yet. In the meantime, what's to sto…

It’s Mod Time

It's quite easy to get into a watch rut. Most people aren't expected to have seven timepieces for seven days. But why not have as much fun with your watch as you do with other jewelry and accessories? The Liz Claiborne Slim Black Watch is a mod take on a classic silhouette. Whimsical lettering live…

It’s Time For A Hella Bright Nixon Watch

There's something to be said for a delicate, lady-like watch. But ladies don't want their accessories to be "lovely" all the time; sometimes we want them to be awesome. And when that mood hits, a bright-as-hell Nixon watch does the job. The Time Teller P Watch looks like a little piece of pop art and…

Go Green Timepieces

Few things compare to a decent watch. Classic timepieces are functional, sophisticated, and the perfect accessory. But what about in the summertime? Something about hot and humid weather stops us short in the morning before putting on jewelry. Metal sticking to our wrist is gross and irritating. That’s why we’re loving this eco-friendly watch. It’…

Sure to be this generation's answer to the Swatch, Normal Watches come in an array of candy colors and feature timely graphics and quotes, like "Facebook Ruined My Life," "I'm So Gay For Marriage," and the sadly true "When Did Rock 'N' Roll Become So F***ing Boring?" We might…

Wrist Candy: Stylish Watches

Most of us get the time from our smart phones or computer monitor, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't wear a stylish timepiece. Since watches are the one accessory no one will fault you for wearing everyday without changing, you should up the statement making-factor by choosing one in a bold color or print, a…

J.Crew To Sell Vintage Rolex Watches

On Friday, we were perplexed when we came across two product listings on JCrew.com accompanied by photos of Rolex watches. Now that the product information has been updated, it seems that J.Crew is indeed selling luxury timepieces, or at least they will be shortly. While you still can't add the watches to your…

Rolex For J. Crew?

While perusing JCrew.com this morning, searching for something amazing and preferably on sale, I happened to click on the jewelry section. Scrolling through it, I saw beaded necklaces, pearl earrings, and then, what's this, two Rolex watches? Now, the product details are lacking -- instead of a product name and description, it says,…

Britney: Money Can’t Buy Love

Britney reportedly bought K-Fed a $150,000 watch as a belated 30th birthday present. A source said: "Kevin's whole attitude to his ex-wife has changed. He can see she is responding to treatment for her bipolar disorder, staying sober and trying to rebuild her life and career." We're glad Britney's on the mend (despite a…
