Characteristics of WatchesOld and new, masculine and feminine, tool and jewelry -- watches occupy a unique place in the world of adornment. Originally created in the Napoleonic France of the 1800s as a kind of women’s bracelet, watches were strongly associated with feminine beauty and refinement for over a hundred years. When World War I demanded new strategies and carefully timed maneuvers, however, the decorative women’s watch turned into a functional piece of masculine apparel. Today, the pendulum has come to rest in the middle, and here at Kevin’s Fine Jewelry, we’re pleased to be able to offer a diverse assortment of Swiss-quality timepieces to both men and women alike!
Popular Watch Collections at Kevin’s Fine JewelryOne of our most beloved watch brands is MICHELE, the incomparable women’s watchmaker whose designs are specifically tailored to meet both the aesthetic and technological needs of the modern woman. The Sidney collection from MICHELE is inspired by the watch culture that grew out of the boardrooms of the 80s. Since 80s chic is definitely en vogue again, the clean, bold dials of the Sidney collection are universally respected. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal accentuates the diamonds used in the construction of these stainless-steel marvels. Also, the Hybrid Smartwatch collection is ideal for a woman who loves her gadgets: These watches retain the elegant feminine beauty of other MICHELE collections, but inside, these timepieces include fitness tracking technology, notifications, haptic vibrations for alerts, and more—all capable of two-way connection to one’s computer!
Michael Kors also produces a magnificent set of watches for both men and women. The Maci collection for women is the height of neoclassical elegance. It’s not hard to imagine that an ancient Roman woman would have admired the timeless beauty of one of the rose gold, mother of pearl, and diamond offerings from Michael Kors. Their sumptuous beauty is comparable to any bracelet and would make the perfect accompaniment for a stole and a night on the town. Michael Kors timeless refinement can also be seen in the men’s Merrick collection. Drawing on a wellspring of understated masculine robustness, a man can wear one of these watches, admire the oversize case and quartz/chronograph movement, and feel a connection to his grandfather’s generation of men.
