Did I get your attention? Okay, perhaps that was a cheap joke but when it comes to buying a watch that can be worn for multiple occasions, the bracelet that you (forgive me) “strap on” is the primary feature that will provide you with true versatility. Which brings me to Philip Stein.
Philip Stein is a top tier designer of luxury watches that is perhaps best known for the technology behind all its collections, which they call “frequency technology” but I have also heard it referred to as Teslar. Regardless of its name, however, this technology puts the Philip Stein brand in two seemingly unrelated categories: Luxury timepiece and health product. The former category is a given but the latter designation is due to the fact that frequency technology Philip Stein utilizes apparently makes their watches help its wearers sleep, relax, and generally feel better.
But that said, the possible health benefits of Philip Stein watches aren’t really my concern. I care about style. Because as Billy Crystal used to say during his old Saturday Night Live days: “It’s better to look good than to feel good.” Which brings me back to Philip Stein’s wide variety of bracelets and straps for all of its timepieces. Aside from the quality mechanical features of their various watch collections and the “two watches in one” look of their dials, the best feature of Philip Stein collections is that you can buy one watch from them and pair it with as many different matching straps as you can afford. (And the good news is that the straps are rather inexpensive). So it is perfectly doable to buy a watch from Philip Stein’s Prestige Collection and pair it with three different straps: a pearl white strap, a red strap, and perhaps a stainless steel bracelet and voila, you have a watch for all seasons.
That’s right, in one blog I went from strap-ons to Fernando Lamas to A Man For All Seasons. It must be time for my nap.
