Chanel 2013-2014 Winter-Fall Show sends a Fashion Shoutout that’s Terrestrial

Written by Chaz Nash

Chanel 2013/2014 Winter-Fall Fashion Show held at the palatial Grand Palais – Paris may have been on planet Earth, however, the fashions presented at the fashion show were on the verge of being out of this galaxy!

Karl Lagerfeld reached deep within his creative cachet and went “East Side” of the global couture spectrum to create what may be defined as one of Chanel’s most terrestrial fashions collection to encompass the globe.

Models adorned in an incorporation of Asian inspired and an introspective of Chanel’s global designs walked the circumference of a circular runway displaying superimposed graphics of the continents. And cleverly staged in the center of this phenomenal runway was a ginormous rotating globe that marked over 300 of the brand’s stores as well as its centennial echelon in haute couture.

Blue Coat and Black Textile Coat

Karl Lagerfeld fashion designs spoke mystical Chanel Francais in ooh la la colors of silver, steel, grey, classic black, blue, baby pink and white, all of which were consummated in a varage of textiles tailored in tweed coats and kilts, double-length coats with downward zippers, pleated short skirts and asymmetrical knit skirts with vibrant movements and knit sweaters adorned with elaborate knit linked chains, all of which were meticulously accessorized with black and silver chain pendants and bracelets, exquisite bags, low heeled boots cladded with Chanel signature chains and/or shoes worn with white/black knit, leather or patent leather leggings. Mercy and merci!

Lagerfeld said of the 2013 Fall-Winter Chanel designs, “The main theme of the collection is from black to grey, colors of shadows and very mysterious. I thought for this season we are going to make a proposition in a completely different direction, what is still one hundred percent Chanel.” Indeed, a different direction that is absolutely amazing and establishes a new signature for the Chanel brand.

This amazing collection has a retro edginess that is modern and alluringly extraterrestrial, yet possesses Chanel’s classic jeux de vie (joy of living) fashion flavor. Chanel has certainly made an interplanetary shout out with this collection. In the mean time, we have to sit on edge to anticipate the timepiece collection that will complement this amazing collection!

Titan Black & FC Chelsea Create Custom Rolex Daytona Watch

If you are a fan of the Chelsea Football Club, you’ll love the new Titan Black Rolex Daytona custom made for the team. Titan Black and Chelsea FC spent a long time coming up with the perfect Rolex watch. It was created to celebrate the team’s May 2012 Champion League Win in Munich as well as their current UEFA Champion Title.

While not many details of the Rolex Daytona Chelsea FC have been released, we know that it showcases the team’s notorious color of blue. There are three small logo sections within the watch: one of white and blue stars at 9 o’clock, the team’s logo at 6 o’clock and the logo of the UEFA Champion League at 3 o’clock. The simplicity of these small logos and the colors are what really make the watch pop. The face of the watch is white, with the blue in the logos and all watch hands. The minute and hour hands have small cut outs in them. The case and band of the watch are steel colored with a diamond-like coating to make it gleam.custom_titan_black_chelsea_fc_rolex_daytona_marks_london_clubs_first_ever_win_of_uefa_champions_league_3bux2

The Rolex Daytona Chelsea FC should carry the same mechanical specs of other watches in the Rolex Daytona line. This includes beautiful touches like the laser engraved numbers on the bezel and crystal glass protecting the face. The watch has a flip lock bracelet and is water resistant up to 100 meters. It is also an automatic movement so the players won’t have much to think about other than keeping their schedules.

It took Titan Black and Chelsea FC almost a year to design the perfect watch together. It is no doubt now adorning the wrists of everyone on the team, including their coach and board members. Chelsea FC has had a fantastic year and becoming London’s first team to win the Champion League is definitely a reason to celebrate. Titan Black has created a piece that will help spread unity on the team with their Rolex Daytona Chelsea FC.

Romain Jerome Makes Watch for Sci-Fi’s

Romain Jerome has created a watch that will make any sci-fi lover squeal with delight. Named the “Spacecraft,” this watch will make you think Star Wars. Specifically Darth Vader. Spacecraft is a watch that screams vintage futuristic all at once, which is very hard to accomplish.


Spacecraft is a titanium watch that is coated with PVD.  It focuses on hard angles and flat lines to give it that space – feel. It is run with a self-winding movement that has so many different motions to it, it has yet to been seen. With retrograde hours, the watch moves laterally, linearly and even jumps! Why does it need so many movements? Because of the way the watch is ready. Spacecraft is not going to be a watch for someone who wants to-the-second accurate time. Jerome notes this himself. It is meant for style.


To tell the time on Spacecraft, you must first look at the side of the watch where the hours are located. The correct hour will be red, caused by a spring-driven carriage. Then go to the watch face where the minutes are located. It may be a little hectic, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t think twice about reading the watch. The entire watch was hand pieced and tied together with a black mesh strap.


If you are a fan of unique watches, or a Star Wars, space lover, Spacecraft is definitely the watch for you. It is going to be an extremely rare watch, however, with only ninety-nine created. The cost definitely mirrors the high craftsmanship at $33,400. But if you can afford it, this will be a piece everyone will constantly talk about. Tell time with style.

TAG Heuer Monaco Means Business

TAG Heuer's Monaco Men's

 TAG Heuer Monaco watches have been enormously popular ever since their first release, many years ago.  The styling of the Monaco is that of a vintage timepiece.  Their softly squared off case, and dials were revolutionary at the time of the Monaco’s conception, and even today, this designing is unique and stands out among its competitors.  TAG Heuer doesn’t simply make a great looking watch; they masterfully craft instruments of timekeeping, like no other watch maker around.  Their productions are always ahead of their time.  This avant-garde company is constantly creating new and innovative timepieces, and improving on their watches of the past.  The Monaco is one of those watches, which TAG has re-vamped and brought back on several occasions, and we are so glad they did.  The TAG Heuer Monaco Men’s watch CAW2110-FC6177 is a handsome version of this iconic timepiece.  This automatic chronograph by TH features a black dial, with two toned hands, arms, and indexes.  This Swiss made chronograph is a self winding model.  It offers a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and stainless-steel case.  The case back is a skeleton style, with visible movement.  Variety watches is offering this watch at a 36% discount, making the final price $2,870.  This is a fantastic deal on a phenomenal timepiece.

Discount Watches Are Abundant

Discount Watches

There are plenty of discounted watches on the web to choose from.  Consumers can choose from fashion watches in the $200 range all the way up to high-end designer timepieces which could set you back $10,000, or more.  For today, let’s highlight a few in the $250-$500 spread.

First up is the T-Race Men’s Watch, by Tissot.  Tissot is well-known (and respected) for their high quality watches.  They are masters of timekeeping, so you know you’re getting a finely crafted watch.  This men’s chronograph is made from polished stainless-steel, with a durable rubber strap.  It’s rugged and hard-working looks give off a manly feel.  Tissot has this watch set with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and genuine Swiss movement.  This awesome men’s watch is made for performance, but looks good too…and I found it at a 46% discount.

Next let’s check out something for the ladies.  We located the Classic Museum Woman’s Watch from Movado at a 51% discount.  You can’t go wrong with this woman’s watch.  It is quintessential Movado…sleek lines, streamlined, and beautiful.  This particular version is featured white on white.  The striking white leather bracelet is paired with a bright white face and it works.  All of Movado’s artistry and craftsmanship is in this watch, and at this price it’s hard to pass up.

Discount Watches For Savvy Shoppers

Discount Watches are Quality Finds

Discount watches come in all shapes and sizes.  What Discount means is great, quality watches at reduced prices.  It doesn’t refer to, cheap.  First, let’s understand that retailers discount watches for many reasons.  It may be as simple as the fact that the watch wasn’t as popular as hoped, and there is excess inventory…or they could be trying to pass off a fake.  When purchasing a discounted watch from a third party, make sure you have a way of verifying its authenticity.  Having said that, great deals can be had online and here are a few examples.

I located the 4898 Invicta Men’s Corduba Chronograph selling for $119.00.  This bold men’s watch is one of the diver’s series and is made in all stainless-steel and durable rubber.  The dial is black and displays luminous minute and second hands.  The dial also features sub-dials and day and date calendar.  The Invicta Men’s Corduba Chronograph is water resistant to 200 meters.  Great discount watch at an 83% discount from retail.  The website this was found on offers a 30-day money back guarantee.  Not bad.

Ladies are in luck as well.  That same site offered the 96X108 Bulova Crystal Watch and Pendant set for $149.99.  Bulova is well known for their quality and style, and this woman’s watch is particularly stunning.  This discount watch is made from all stainless-steel materials, with a white dial and sparkling crystals encircling the face and making up the bracelet.  This watch is feminine and elegant, and accompanies a beautiful crystal pendant. 

As I said earlier, phenomenal deals on discount watches can be found on the internet.  Just be a savvy shopper and do your research before you buy.  Happy shopping!

IWC Makes Quality Timepieces

International Watch Company (IWC) has gained unparalleled respect as a premier luxury watchmaker.  The company, founded in 1868 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland has been wowing us with incredible designs ever since.  IWC’s flawlessly crafted timepieces have been enjoyed by many, and their popularity continues to grow.

IWC is best known for their innovation.  They offer many different styles of chronographic watches, such as the Pilot’s Chronograph, which features three dials for accurate time-telling.  The dials on this watch are bold and easily read.  The Pilot’s Chronograph comes with either a leather strap or stainless-steel.  This men’s watch is both handsome and highly-functional.

International Watch Company is also famous for their diving watches.  The Aquatimer is offered with the needs and wants of the professional diver.  This watch has fantastic under-water visibility and was born from decades of technological innovation. 

And then there is IWC’s Da Vinci line.  The Da Vinci is the most luxurious and sophisticated line of watches, coming in stainless-steel, solid gold and high quality diamonds.  This watch comes with an automatic self-winding movement that IWC developed and is, truly a work of art.

These incredible timepieces will put you back a bit, but they are worth every penny.  The care and craftsmanship that goes into each piece before it is introduced to the public is unmatched.  And if you need a real working watch, like the Pilot or the Aquatimer…the IWC won’t disappoint.  If you, very simply desire a high quality watch made with the utmost care, you cannot go wrong choosing a timepiece from IWC.

Panerai-Serious Watchmakers

Panerai - Serious Watchmakers
Panerai Watch is a family owned company, founded in 1825, by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy.  They immediately partnered with the best Swiss watchmakers and began their journey.  By the early 1900’s Panerai began experimenting with products to create luminescence in their watches and other instruments they supplied to the Royal Italian Navy.  Mr. Panerai’s grandson invented and patented the Radiomir and Luminor watches that the company is famous for.

Much of the companies early efforts were directed in creations for the Navy.  In 1943, Panerai released the first Chronograph prototype, this watch was water-proof up to 200 meters, an unheard of depth for this time.  But, less than 40 years later the company showcased a titanium watch that could withstand depths of 1000 meters!  They continued working closely with the Navy to provide valuable instruments.

By the mid 1990’s Panerai switched gears a bit and started offering more styles for the civilian market.  The Panerai Sub-Mariner was one of the first watches from them for the general public.

Having said that, Panerai didn’t give up much when offering a watch to the average Joe.  These watches are, definitely a piece of machinery.  The L’Astromono Luminor 1950 Turbillon GMT is a beautifully designed watch.  With a case made from titanium, a polished titanium bezel and see-through back made from sapphire crystal, this timepiece lacks nothing.

Granted, the Panerai watches have maintained much of their conservative features throughout the years, but the inner workings are phenomenal. The history behind Panerai watches is rich with innovation and design.  I don’t believe you can find a more well-crafted watch in the world.
