SAINT-HONOR˙ Haussmann Lady Watch
It is the eye catching design of these new Haussmann Lady watches by SAINT-HONORE that draws my attention. In a nutshell, you have a women's watch with what are normally masculine aggressive looks, and a mix between affordability and luxury. This will be the new trend as the economy continues to take jabs at the luxury industry. The mixture of elements such as diamonds and pink gold plated cases and accents, tenderize the aggressive facade of this 38mm wide watch face, appealing to the right kind of lady.
With a price that is bound to be affordable for the look - due to gold plating and a quartz movement - the Haussmann Lady has a lot to offer if you are drawn to the design. Faces are black or available in mother of pearl, and the strap is available in leather or silk. The latter design is the most intriguing to me, mixing a soft silk strap and a diamond studded face and bezel, with the screw and bolted design of the case. Large hands and number markers continue to mix up the design for a complicated, but surprisingly cohesive look.
Look for the Parisian designed SAINT-HONORE Haussmann Lady watch to be unveiled at Baselworld in April. Prices start at around 300 Euros.
