is one of America's oldest watch brands, but has been out of the spotlight for some time now. Seemingly back in action, the brand has a few new models for 2009, one of which is this Lady Amelia watch. As a tribute to the ill-fated Amelia Earhart pilot, the watch is a true combination of elegance and function. The stunning and unique design features flared lugs and prominent classic looking pushers and crown. The pink cabochons are a good touch, and mix well with the soft pink tones of the face as well as with the rubber strap. Waltham calls the pink "pastel," I'll just stick with "pink."
Inside the watch is an Swiss ETA caliber 251.471 chronograph quartz movement. Diamonds serve as some of the hour markers while the mother of pearl face serves as a fitting backdrop for the polished steel hour markers and dial bezels. The watch is also available in black and steel tones for those who find that the pink version makes too much of a statement. Price is about $3,000 retail.
