It’s that time of year; the organized people are already gift shopping for their friends. I used to look out of the window as a child and see a shimmering Bulova watch billboard during the holidays. It set the standard for sophistication to my 5 year old self. I was re-introduced to the brand at a holiday shopping celebration.
The wearable tech market is being led by smart watches. Many of these are bulky pieces that will give you your heart rate and re-confirm that the phone you have in your other hand got a text message.
A classic watch is now a luxury. I learned from an industry lecture that watches are the new jewelry gift. By giving a watch crafted like a fine bracelet, it is an indulgence because you are wearing it for the style, not purely for function anymore.
The Bulova Facets collection is taking cues from heritage designs and fine jewelry. I was the lucky gift recipient of a rose gold piece with about 100 hand set crystals embedded in the face. While it is contemporary, it also has hints of Gatsby glamour with is mother of pearl face.
To be honest, most of the watches I already own are quirky, minimalist and rarely worn. This piece is the perfect finishing accessory for me for upcoming holiday parties. It has elegance, but it isn’t stuffy. It’s light and water resistant (just in case those parties get too wild). It is definitely one of my favorite gifts this year because it is beautiful, functional, but not a piece that I would have purchased for myself out of necessity. That’s why it was a treat.
Are you ready to be a stylish Santa? Consider the Bulova Facets collection for your deserving loved ones!
