What Time is it?

“What time is it, you ask? Hold on, let me check my watch… Ummmmm…” Things can get really awkward when it takes you a full sixty seconds to give someone the time of day because you can’t figure out which hour the big hand on your watch is pointing to.

Thought you were the only one, huh? Nope, lots of people take a bit of time to read the time, especially when their watches are those super sleek, clean-cut watches that have about half a roman numeral to indicate all 12 of the digits we use to measure time.

Some people are more talented than others when it comes to the art of telling time and can afford to choose the stylish numberless sort of watch-face. Lucky dogs. Some people need the basic compass of numbers – 3, 6, 9, and 12 and they’re good to go. And some of us direly need our watches to spell out every single number 1-12 in order to show any level of competency at that heart-wrenching, panic-inducing moment when a stranger oh-so-innocently asks for the time.

Luckily, whichever category you fall into, WatchesandBeyond covers all the bases with an extensive assortment of all watch-types.

If you need all 12 digits on that watch face, this beautiful Chopard Happy Diamonds Watch with an 18k gold watch face is on-point.

If you’re a fan of roman numerals, this elegant gold-plated steel watch from Frederique Constant is perfect for you:

If you think you’ve got the skill, this Sintra Jubile Ceramos & Blue Sapphire watch from Rado has got 4 diamonds embedded in the face for a beautiful effect.

The Tiffany & Co. Tesoro watch is stunningly simple in its elegance. The large 12 and 6 help indicate where the hour hand is pointing. This watch may present a bit of difficulty to the “time-tellingly” challenged.

Last, we love this beautiful Valentino piece. The black leather strap combined with the black face and black diamonds make quite the sharp impression. Buyer beware though, make sure you can still tell time, because there are no number indicators on this face!

Leather vs. Stainless Steel: The Watchband Dilemma

When considering purchasing a new watch, the big question is simple: leather or stainless steel?

Metal watch bands are quite popular and there is what to be said for them. The sleek shine of the bracelet on the wearer’s wrist exudes an aura of status and importance.

On the other hand, leather bands have a rustic charm that we love. They lend a bit of a vintage feel to your ensemble. The leather band can very nicely offset luxe details like gold accents on a watch face, to create a look of subtle, understated luxury. On the fence about which band type best suits your personality? We are here to help!

Watches & Beyond has an enormous assortment of discount designer watches of every designer, style, and price. We’ve got a few picks for you to check out below for timepieces with both stainless steel and leather bracelets.

Longines Watches

Longines was founded in 1832 and has been producing masterpieces ever since. Its signature logo is a winged hourglass, perhaps symbolic of the timeless class Longines watches exemplify, down to every last detail. If you are looking for a watch that exudes sophistication and finesse, a Longines is the best investment you can make. The company doesn’t retain their high-end status among watchmakers for no reason. Although there are a countless number of styles and models to choose from, they have one thing in common: Longines are always a cut above.

At Watches & Beyond, we pride ourselves on offering the very best selection of luxury timepieces at unbeatable prices. We’ve hand selected a few of our favorite Longines watches. Take a look! If you don’t see something that’s exactly your taste, visit our website to see what else we have in stock.

Dazzle with Diamonds

Got a special occasion in your calendar? Special occasions call for appropriate attire. Depending on where or what you’re going to, you’ll need to plan your wardrobe to the last details to look great.

When it comes to presenting well, the key is to master the details. Everything else is easy! You can wear a slick suit, but if you’ve got your everyday watch peeking out of that cuff… the effect is ruined.

Wearing the correct watch for the occasion shows planning and attention to detail on the wearer’s behalf. It says something about a woman’s personality when she models not just the best of her jewelry box, but an ornate watch to match her ensemble – and the occasion.

For eveningwear, a diamond bezel watch is a perfect complement and a worthwhile investment. A watch like the beautiful timepieces shown below can be pulled out on all your special occasions, worn during treasured moments and unforgettable evenings. It becomes a thing of sentimental value and timeless class.

Baume & Mercier is famous for its expert craftsmanship and uniquely beautiful timepieces. Watches that bear this brand are perfect for those special days.

We’re definitely noticing the trend with clothes, and watches are no exception. The oversized women’s watch is totally outshining the dainty feminine model of past seasons.

Buyer beware though: some of these large-faced women’s watches can look just plain tacky. Make sure you choose a watch that looks good on your wrist and makes a statement without screaming for attention.

Omega Watches

Omega is a Swiss luxury watchmaker we’re sure you’ve heard of. It is, in some ways, one of the most significant watch companies in the world. Omega’s history is a long and rich one.  23-year-old Louis Brandt started the company in 1848 and later passed it on to his sons. The brand underwent a downturn at the end of the 1970’s but became a leading watchmaker once again with the help of some great advertising and strategic product placement, most famously,James Bond sporting an Omega Seamaster in the 1995 film Golden Eye.

The trademark horseshoe-like symbol on every Omega watch is actually a letter from the Greek alphabet, called Omega, which symbolizes the absolute limit of a set or perfection. Wearing an Omega is a symbol of status, luxury, and quality. One of the features that makes an Omega timepiece unique is that Omega is the only Swiss watch company that uses co-axial escapement, a type of modern watch escapement mechanism that means the watch needs fewer services. It’s not just a brand name – It’s a guarantee of superb quality.

Since its inception, Omega has won countless awards. It’s been the official timekeeper at more than twenty Olympics games. In 1969 as Neil Armstrong took one small step for man, Omega made history as the first watch on the moon.

Your Holiday Getaway Packing Guide

Have you packed yet?

If you’re going away for the holidays, choosing what to bring along and what to leave behind is super annoying. We figured we’d help you out a bit with some suggestions.

First off, when in doubt, do without. The likelihood you’ll need that extra-extra pair of jeans is actually quite small. And you can always do the laundry. We’re pretty sure washing machines are a universal concept, so don’t worry about it, wherever you’re going!

The same applies to cosmetics and toiletries; you can run to the local 24 hour CVS and buy shampoo. There’s no need to schlep it all with you! (Unless you like having bottles of liquid explode inside your suitcase – then go ahead!)

Do NOT, we repeat, do NOT forget to grab your phone charger out of the wall in the morning before you leave. That can be super inconvenient! Pack all other electronic devices, wires, laptops etc. in advance to avoid major heartache.

Even if you plan on staying in your jeans and a Hanes for the duration of your trip, always pack at least one presentable ensemble. And don’t skimp on packing accessories – like your watch!

Speaking of watches, make sure you have the right watch for your destination. If you’re planning a beach getaway, a waterproof watch is a must. Don’t have a waterproof watch? Here are a couple of our best:
