Oversize Watch Trend & Orient Men's Watch Giveaway

First thing first, the winner of Tolani scarf giveaway is the lovely Ela of Extra Dressing on the Side. Congrat sweetie, e-mail me your info and I will have the scarf sent to you.
In the past few years there is a trend toward oversize watches. Personally I adore this trend. Wearing an oversize watch gives me a sense of activeness and sportiness. This is a perfect mixture of masculinity and feminine style for any modern savvy gals. I am dipping into Savvy Dad, and Savvy brother's watch collection. Of course I will be eyeing BF's watches soon. This is so perfect, we can interchange our watches. Poor man, he doesn't know it yet though...
When I think of oversize watches, Panarai of course comes to mind. I have seen up to 47 mm in watch face (or dial).
left Luminor 1950 stainless steel 44 mm face, about $17,000
right Luminor 1950 rose gold 44 mm face, about $31,000
Cartier is one of my favorite watch brand. And, Pasha is one watch I want to collection but have not found a reason to justify such a purchase.
-left Cartier Pasha Limited to 3000 production 35 mm face, about $4000
-right Cartier Pasha Limited to 2000 production 35 mm face, about 4000
Dior White Gold Chiffre Rouge 102 38 mm face, about $42,000 (Gees, I rather buy a new car!)
Hamilton Khaki Twilight 44 mm face, about $1000
Longines L704 automatic 42mm face, about $2400
Seiko Spring Drive automatic 43.5 mm face, about $8600 (I didn't know Seiko offers anything so exclusive.)
This is my version of oversize by Zenith. It is from the Open Heart collection. Last time I checked, the retail price was about $9800. Well, anything owned by LV group will just sky rocket in price. This watch is about 39 mm. I feel so sporty wearing this watch. ~smile..... If money is no an issue, I love to buy me a Rolex GMT Master. Many of my gal pals are buying Rolex men's watches to wear to bring out their sporty side. Wearing a loose shirt with jeans and an oversize watch is just so savvy and stylish. Unfortunately people at Rolex do not know there is a recession, this watch is still over $7000.... ~ sigh!!! Speaking of men's watches, the savvy folks at Orient watch and Savvy Mode will be giving away this men's watch to one lucky SM reader. This will be the perfect watch for a gal to wear as an oversize watch (the dial or face is measured 38 mm) or to give your honey/father/brother/or son as the perfect Christmas gift. The retail value is $100.
There are other savvy Orient ladies watches available. The one on left is my favorite and for only $250. In case the Rolex GMT Master is not in your budget, what about Orient CEM75002d (also available with orange or black face). It has the same styling as the Rolex but only fraction of the price at $250. What a great gift for yourself or your honey!

How to Enter:
-Must be a Savvy Mode subscriber or follower

  26. I already sometimes wear my hubs watch but its too big. I can't take the links out on him so it would be nice to have one of my own :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I remember my friends having pop swatches. :)) I wanted to have one badly but we can't afford it. :( But now that I can, I don't think I'll ever buy it anymore... Those big bold watches you have are fabulous! The trend is shifting to boyfriend stuff so I guess a bold watch will look nice on a girl's wrist. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks so much for the comment :)

    Love big watches, always have actually...I never really liked the small ones.

    ReplyDelete
