The World in Color

Colors are beginning to pop up everywhere. Have you seen them? Take a good look around you and you’ll begin to notice; they’re everywhere!

When Spring comes in, it’s a sure sign that the world is about to become a lot more colorful.

First off, Mother Nature graces us with beautiful tree-lined streets that shower pink petals all over you as you walk. It’s almost like a fairy tale! (If you don’t have allergies, that is. Then those innocent-looking pink buds are basically a full-blown nightmare)

New graffiti goes up in the most unexpected places as the weather warms up and people have free time to spend outside. Graffiti is illegal, but you’ve got to admit, sometimes it’s beautifully colorful!

Another sort of artwork you’ll notice if you pay careful attention are the colorful chalk drawings and abandoned hopscotch games displayed on sidewalks everywhere… Aaah the carefree days of summer when you’re a kid…

If you walk into the mall to browse the latest styles in search of an item or two to update your spring wardrobe with, you’ll notice loads of clothes and accessories in soft pastel hues and eye-popping neons. Colorful clothing is a trademark of Spring. After months in black sweaters and boots, throwing some color on is so refreshing and also, an instant mood-booster!

With all this color inspiration surrounding us, we were inspired to join in and add our own color to the season :)

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.

Love Is In The Air

It’s February. We all know what that means. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. “Now’s the time to beat the crowds and choose a gift for your special someone” would be the perfect clincher to get people out and about, spending those dollars. We’re not going there.

Even so, inasmuch as Valentine’s Day can be overhyped, overrated a bit even, it  can be a  great opportunity to express your feelings to the person you love. Some people are great at that sort of thing every day of the year… but for some people, a designated day helps us put those feelings out on the table, wear our hearts on our sleeve, if only for a moment or two.

Valentines Day is the day to reinforce the connection you share with your significant other by showing your affection, be it via love notes, flowers, gifts… whatever you know speaks to your partner.

If you’re considering purchasing a watch for the special day, we’re about to make things much easier for you. You can check out our entire collection of discount designer watches at Watches & Beyond, or see our curated selection below.

Add Color to Your Day!

It’s November already, which means it’s dark out by 5 pm, the weather is cooling down, and winter is just around the bend. The drabness and wintry gloom gets pretty dismal. We could do with a bit of a pick-me-up – why not add some novelty to your life with a pop of color in your daily ensemble? Watches in neons, pastels, and jewel hues are all the rage these days. The great thing about this trend is you can wear it so many ways; this way you can find a way to stay up-to-date on the latest fashion, but adopt it in sync with your taste. Add your unique spin on it! You can choose a color that matches your personality and flaunts your style. If you are all for taking risks, make heads turn with a monochromatic, neon fluorescent watch like one of these:

Going for the Gold

Golden. It’s a simple word with a surprising number of meanings – we know, we checked it up in the dictionary. Our search turned up the obvious meaning: made of gold. But it also turned up some other definitions, definitions people subconsciously associate with the sumptuous metal. Among them are “full of glowing vitality” and “full of happiness, prosperity, or vigor”. Golden connotes “destined for success” and “richly soft and smooth”. It’s no wonder gold-trimmed accessories are the mark of upscale designer brands. Wearing gold, be it in jewelry, handbags or watches, screams luxury and success. Want your appearance to communicate power? Choose one of the following gilded watches to do the talking for you.

Will Smartphones Replace Watches?

Swiss Army watchesIt seems these days that when you ask people for the time, instead of turning their wrist, they reach into their pocket and grab their phone. There has been a definite rise in smartphone owners over the past few years, but does that mean luxury watches will soon become extinct?

The answer is simply no. There will always be a need for a wristwatch, which has become even more fashion-based over the last few years as well. A watch has always showed off a level of class that a phone simply cannot do. Watches come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. It is much easier to accessorize with a watch than with a phone. Also, a watch is a more meaningful gift for somebody than a cell phone. Cell phones are typically replaced within a few years. A great watch can last a lifetime.

Whether it be for a job interview, a first date, or meeting someone new, a good wristwatch will make a big first impression. It is always in clear view, unlike a cell phone which remains in your pocket. You can also easily match a watch with an article of clothing, jewelry, or occasion. A watch is a meaningful accessory that is often passed down for generations. Unlike a phone, a good watch won’t break when you drop it.

Browse our extensive collection to find the next addition to your timepiece collection.

Great Gifts for Men

Raymond Weil Tango If there are still a few men on your gift list, consider giving them luxury watches. A watch is a meaningful gift that will last a lifetime. With so many styles on the market, there is a watch for everyone and anyone. Let’s review some options.

The Girard Perragaux Laureato BMW Oracle Racing Flyback encompasses the sleek style of a European race car. The face is styled after a speedometer. The combination of multiple subdials and large, bold hands make this watch easy to read, while still packing a lot of information. This timepiece is also remarkably comfortable due to its highly durable rubber strap and bezel. This dynamic, race-inspired watch will make car lovers swoon.

For something a bit less sporty and slightly more elegant, we turn to the Raymond Weil Tango watch collection. The Raymond Weil Tango Two Tone Mens Watch is wonderful for formal occasions and nights out. This affordable gold watch features stylish gold Roman numerals and a date window at three o’clock. It is scratch resistant so it will continue to shine long after it is taken out of its package. This mature, sophisticated watch is sure to be enjoyed by the recipient.
