Piaget Polo S Launch in Sydney

piaget-polo-s-sydney-4
Although the Polo S watch was introduced back in July, the Piaget team visited Sydney earlier this month to introduce it to the Australian market. The intimate event at Beta Bar was met with great fanfare as a new generation of the iconic Polo watch was unveiled. When Yves G. Piaget designed the original Polo watch in 1979, he intended it to be a watch to symbolize the luxurious lifestyle. As a result, Polo was the 'it' watch in the 1980s, and at one point made up for one-third of Piaget’s watch sales.   While the Polo has continued to be a integral part of Piaget's collection and heritage, the company knows its once iconic watch has been in need of an...

Watches should serve their sole purpose: to tell the time and date. So here are some of the best minimalist watches for men under $500. These are men's watches which...

Flud Big Ben Wood Watch Review

Flud Big Ben Wood Watch Review Blog header
In an era when so much of fashion is disposable, we try to look out for style pieces that stand the test of time. However, we sometimes come across accessories that are just too cool too pass on, of which the Flud Big Ben Wood Watch epitomizes. Aptly named the London Big Ben, Flud has created a traditional granddaddy clock face, but the real selling point is that it's made from wood. From the wooden dials to interchangeable wood-linked bands, the Flud Big Ben wood watch comes in four different materials, Oak, Black wood, Redwood and Birch. Unlike the Ralph Lauren Sporting Chronograph we previously reviewed, the Big Ben wood watch isn't subtle and it won't go under the radar. It demands...

Issey Miyake Twelve and Twelve 365 Watch

Issey-Miyake-Twelve-Watch
Issey Miyake has always been the Japanese father of simplistic design and refined elegance. His watches are no different. The Twelve watches are all made from stainless steel and fine leather. The utilitarian design removes all marking and numberings, instead relying on the cleverly crafted twelve angles on the case to reveal the time. The Issey Miyake Twelve 365 is similarly a combination of utilitarian design and understated style, as the numbers indicate the hour, minute, seconds in addition to day/date.
