Choosing the Right Watch for a Date

October 21, 2012 Leave a comment

If you’ve got a hot date planned and you want to make a perfect first impression, learning how to choose the right watch for your date will help you to achieve your goal. By coordinating your wristwatch with your preferred date outfit, you’ll be able to look your best while you show off your own personal style. When it comes to choosing the right watch for your date, it’s important to consider your overall image. For example, if you’re planning on wearing jeans and a t-shirt and enjoying a casual evening with your sweetheart, consider donning a casual sports watch (such as a Timex design) or a plastic Swatch. These fun and functional watches will never make you look like you’re trying too hard, and they offer plenty of features, such as luminous faces, colorful straps, and alarms. Typically, you may find these sorts of designs for fifty to one hundred dollars.

For a more formal date, look for elegant style that is the perfect complement to dress pants and a nice shirt. Bulova, Seiko and Circa all create sophisticated watch styles that are ideal accessories for dressier attire. Look for a watch that you’re proud to wear, and always seek out unique style details that give your date night look a touch of originality and beauty. Choose a material that suits your coloring; for example, if you have a warm skin tone, choose yellow gold or rose gold, as it will look perfect with your natural coloring. If your skin tone is cool, you’ll look better in a white gold, silver, or stainless steel wristwatch that brings out the blue and pink tones in your complexion.

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a luxury timepiece, such as a Piaget or Rolex. These classic, collectible designs are crafted to impress, and they make an unforgettable statement. Such wristwatches send a message of status and success, and that’s why many men (and women) enjoy wearing them on big evenings out.

GreatTiming Presents Porsamo Bleu Watches

July 23, 2012 1 comment

Porsamo Bleu Watches are considered some of the most elegant timepieces in the world. The jewelry itself is created largely by a famous third generation jeweler called Moe Afshar and his partner Krisztina Csupo. The two of them have been focused on fashion and creative design for many decades together. The two of them together have both the talent and the educational background to pull off a great clout in the watch making industry. They have created memorable timepieces that will be used and revered for decades yet to come.

What is the history of Porsamo Bleu Watches?

Porsamo Bleu Watches originate from the family run business that Ata Afshar, the grandfather of Moe Afshar started. Ata was a master goldsmith in Iran, in that famous ancient city of fine art and fine wine – Shiraz. He managed his business single handedly from 1915 until the 1980s at which point he began handing over control to his son, Jalal. Jalal continued the family tradition and passed on everything his father had taught him about making fine jewelry to his son, Moe.

Moe met Krisztina Csupo and the two of them partnered up to create and model some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces in the world. Porsamo Bleu Watches have since become an icon for elegance, beauty, ancient style and art. The company is based in Los Angeles at the moment.

What are Porsamo Bleu Watches like?

Porsamo Bleu Watches are made from a variety of materials and can be worn by both men and women alike. They are designed in a unisex manner. They are mostly rounded and their most classical pieces are perfectly circular. But later on, their most recent designs have been reminiscent of squares or other polygons while still retaining that classic round shape that they have become iconic from.

Selling Time

There’s a married couple in Elk Grove who would be happy to give you the time of day. They’d be even happier to sell it to you.

Dana Porter and Caroline Liss are the owners of Great Timing Inc., an authorized online wristwatch dealer of more than 85 brands at prices ranging from about $20 to thousands.

They’ve heard the rumor that watches are becoming obsolete as clocks can be found on cell phones, mp3 players and other portable devices. Indeed, in about 2006, news reports abounded about declining wristwatch sales among America’s teens and young adults, who view them as unnecessary.

But even if people don’t need watches to tell time, sales figures suggest they still want them for other reasons. According to the Watch Dealers Network, a partner of The International Watch and Jewelry Guild, the watch industry has seen an increase in revenue of 300 percent since 2001, in part due to high-end sales of limited editions to collectors. The 2007 Economic Census showed that California had 2,173 watch shops with $579.74 million in sales, but those figures were collected before the recession hit. Great Timing sold roughly 10,000 watches last year, about 25 percent during Christmas season.
