Walking into the Geneva Watch Group's showroom in Midtown, can be overwhelming. SO many watches...so little time.
Makers of quality fashion timepieces for a host of designer names, we previewed a number of label imprints...including Kenneth Cole, BCBG MAX AZRIA, D&G, and FREESTYLE.
Some design highlights include...
Smaller boyfriend dials for women
Art deco inspired silhouettes-classic and sporty
|Scroll Bar Technology-Kenneth Cole-with a flick of the finger---scroll through different functions, date, alarm and chronograph modes. Silicone Straps.|
Stainless steel, rose gold metals dials and bracelet type wristbands (ladylike and solid masculine profiles)...OR bold rainbow and pastel colors---in wristbands out of rubber, textured leather, or silicone
|BCBGMAXAZRIA - The Icon Voyage ($125) Enamel filled dial in four colors, snakeskin textured leather straps|
Transparent dials (pictured from BCBGMaxAzria)
Modified bling and logo...
Dive/ surfer / skateboard inspired multi-functional athletic timepieces-some with a hint of that 80's Casio influence---include digital touch screens---our fav from Freestyle, pictured below.
AND watches retail for less than $220---with most below $180...
Breil Milano collection of modern designed jewelry for women...and men.
Classics---out of stainless steel, we love how versatile these pieces are---one can shorten/lengthen necklaces, transform bracelets into necklaces, or switch up earrings from glam danglers into dainty pieces
|Duplicity Necklace with pave Swarovski crystals. Three looks-as a full pendant with two concentric hoops and a satin finish steel ball, as one "circle of life," -or as a pearl necklace.|
...and affordable...ranging in price from $90-$155.
