Swiss watch maker Nina Ricci
presents an interesting timepiece for Valentine's Day 2010. This sporty yet attractive watch is a departure from the legions of formal jewelry wear often delivered for the "romantic" occasion. Combining the requisite "red" color of love for the occasion with stylized doves on the dial of the thin rectangular steel case (17mm x 37mm in size), and you have a timepiece that both fits the mood of the day yet offers something different. The strap is rubber and has three polished steel plates on both ends of the strap (which is closed via a butterfly clasp). Such plates create a more substantial feel to the watch, but preserve its sporty and comfortable demeanor. As a "love" watch, but the design does not scream "Valentine' Day." As such, it is a piece that can be worn on any occasion. That is not always easy to get away with when your watch dial is pink and shaped like a large heart.
While the red version of the N029 watch is the special version for Valentine's Day, the standard N029 watch collection has two Roman numerals on the dial and arrives in a variety of colors to suit one's tastes. Inside the watch is a Swiss Ronda 751 quartz movement.
