Pea Green With Design Envy: The Philip Stein Prestige 12LW Men’s Watch

No holds barred designing

Like all the watches in the Philip Stein’s Prestige collection, the 12LW men’s watch is replete with features and flair that must make other watch designers pea green with envy. It has the subtlety of pastel in its background, splashes of color in the foreground, earth tone versatility on the straps, engineering creativity in its dial and calendar configuration, and a whole that is more than the sum.

The color scheme of the Prestige 12LW dial face consists of a white background with stripes in a light bluish gray gradient, silver gray numerals and hands, and splashes of forest green in the form of the second hands and some numbers. The primary strap is what Philip Stein calls Trieste green, which is kind of a light pea green. It has two time zone dials, the top dial has the calendar, which includes rotating numbers suppressed under the minute markers; except for the correct date, which shows up clearly in a window at 6 o’clock. The face is covered by a double curved sapphire crystal window with an anti-gloss coating. The men’s watch, which is 5 ATM water resistant, has 1 Ronda movement. The case is stainless steel, with two small sapphire windows on the back.

The Philip Stein Prestige 12LW men’s watch sells for $1,590 at authorized sellers.

Philip Stein 13-VW Prestige Men’s Watch: Striking

Complete with Frequency Technology
A striking example from Philip Stein's prestige collection

Philip Stein has outdone their exceptional style once again. This men’s timepiece is not going to go unnoticed while on your wrist. Whether it’s at the office or out for dinner and a night on the town, this Philip Stein 13-VW Prestige Men’s Watch will match any gentleman’s attire. The oversized, all polished, stainless steel case watch is ideal for any man and the touch of color gives character to this non-traditional watch. Not to mention the well-known frequency technology, it was designed to emit a unique signal that strengthens the body’s own electromagnetic energy field and blocks harmful electromagnetic exposure. What more could you ask for?

When you take a first glance at the watch, you focus your attention on the immaculate detail and uniqueness that is on the face. There are two dials on this timepiece. The larger dial located at the top of the face has roman numerals at the 3 and 7 o’clock hours, with every hour either white or black in color. There are also three sub-dials at the 2, 6 and 10 hour spots. The second, smaller circle at the lower half of the face features hour markers that are a mixture of regular numbers at the odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11) hours and roman numerals at the even hours. The even hour markers are also white in color, while the odd are black. The Philip Stein 13-VW Prestige Men’s Watch also contains sword-shaped hands that complement the style perfectly.

The face is a vogue white dial and features 1 ETA G 15.211 – 10 1/2″, Chronograph movement with calendar and 1 RONDA movement 753 – 5 1/2″. It is 5-ATM water resistant, meaning it is water tested to 50 meters (165 feet) and suitable for showering or swimming in shallow water. Another highlight of the Philip Stein 13-VW Prestige Men’s Watch is a double curved spherical sapphire crystal with an anti-reflecting coating. Rain or shine you will be able to read the time, not to mention the sapphire is also scratch-resistant. It contains a 4 screw case back with 2 small sapphire crystals.

An extra and distinguishing plus about this prestige Philip Stein is the option to have additional straps. The primary strap is a matte max navy strap with a thorn buckle. The vogue white dial of the timepiece is a perfect tone to switch straps to allow for new colors to match your wardrobe. There are a total of 6 straps for this men’s watch; black, grey, or navy in either a deployment ($150 each) or thorn buckle ($85 each).

The Philip Stein 13-VW Prestige Men’s Watch is available for purchase for $1,425.00 on the official Philip Stein website.

The Fruitz of Summer: Philip Stein’s Winning New Collection

Shown here clockwise from left are Orange, Plum, Watermelon, Grapefruit, and Raspberry from the hot, new Philip Stein Fruitz collection.

They look practically good enough to eat.  Bursting with mouthwatering colors, the watches’ main attractions are their vibrant hues and striking resemblance to summer’s bountiful fruits.  In fact, they draw their name from their very inspiration. Desiring to design a watch that was fashion oriented and incorporated natural frequencies for a better life, Philip Stein created Fruitz.

The idea behind Fruitz watches is simple — just as your body receives important vitamins from fresh fruit, you can receive the benefits of Natural Frequency Technology from wearing your Fruitz watch.

The dial of each watch is made to resemble a juicy half cut fruit like Watermelon, Coconut, Papaya, Blueberry, Raspberry, Plum, Orange, Apple, Grapefruit, and Lychee among others.  The markers on each watch are meant to resemble the seeds of their respectively fruit, and a stylized second hand ramps up the fashion fun.  Each Fruitz watch comes in a 36 mm steel case and features the wonderfully textured 3-D dial.

Color and concept are the trends in today’s fashion, and this new line from Philip Stein provides a fun and fashion forward way to show off your summer persona.  Watch bands come in either coordinating colors made of silicon or stainless steel or gold plated stainless steel.

I LOVE the bold, playful colors of this collection, but if you’re more demure you might appreciate the Mulberry Fruitz watch, the most subdued of the collection. It’s color palette is a simple black and white with silver featuring a white on white starburst center, black “seeds” and a black silicon wristband.

Stylish as the new collection is, perhaps the best part of owning one of these new watches is the being able to experience the benefits of Philip Stein’s proprietary Natural Frequency Technology for the very affordable price of $225. Natural Frequency Technology helps balance the body’s energy flow and promote an improved sense of well-being by bringing the wearer’s biofield in line with the key frequencies emanating from deep within the earth.

Fruitz are now available in the United States through Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.  Any one of these watches would add a pop to your summer clothing.  Imagine how much fun you could have with two or three.

Texture: The Philip Stein Modern 7EB Men’s Watch

Can you feel it?

Philip Stein’s designers have once again outdone themselves on the Modern collection 7EB large round men’s watch. This time their originality comes through chiefly by way of texture. From the background of the dial face to the strap, this watch makes it seem as though it is possible to have a sense of touch not with your fingers or skin, but with your eyeballs. Despite the class of the watch, or the impressive technology and precision of Philip Stein, it is the unending stream of design elements that keep surprising us. This watch continues that string of successes.

The Philip Stein Modern 7EB men’s watch features two time zone dials, the primary marked with Roman numerals and the secondary with Arabic numbers. Both dials are stainless steel on a black background of tiny, fine points, giving it the aforementioned texture. The case is also stainless steel. The strap is a silk leather with its own texture that epitomizes modern style. While the strap is interchangeable, this one — the 2-IB — fits the design seamlessly. The dial face is protected with a full sapphire crystal window and the watch is 3-ATM water resistant.

The Philip Stein Modern 7EB large round men’s watch sells for $800 at the Philip Stein website and authorized sellers.

Philip Stein Women’s Collection Prestige With Pave Diamonds #11DP-IPDW Goes From Cocktails to Ballet With Aplomb

The Philip Stein Women’s Collection Prestige with Pave Diamonds, #11DP-IPDW combines glamorous good looks and mind/body balance with proprietary Natural Frequency Technology embedded in each timepiece.

Your little black dress has a new best friend. It’s an ‘oh so glam’ accessory that will take you from cocktails to the ballet with equal ease. Philip Stein’s Women’s Collection Prestige with Pave Diamonds, #11DP-IPDW would be a stunning addition to any women’s jewelry collection.

All that’s best of dark and bright is met in the polished small stainless steel watch case, beginning with the double diamond bezel counterbalanced at each end with double and triple rows of diamonds and continuing with two semi-circles of ebony gemstones outlining the double dials. Two triangular diamond filled insets provide a glittering bridge between the dials and call attention to the graceful simplicity of their white pave diamond faces.

A variety of bands are available for the watch including pashima, silk calf, alligator and stainless steel, but my favorite is the python glamour gold dust (as shown) with its subtle shimmer adding a softening effect to the diamonds’ brilliance.

A double curved spherical sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the front of the case and two small sapphire crystals on the back provide windows into the watch’s outer and inner beauty.

By integrating natural frequency technology into luxury timepieces, Philip Stein is leading the way in mind-body wellness. The secret is in the way the watch exposes frequencies and information to the biofield of the person wearing it. The biofield is the master energy field regulating the body’s functions and with Philip Stein Natural Frequency Technology, a person’s biofield is brought in line with the key frequencies emanating from deep within the earth.

“Wearing the watch all day seemed to improve my overall peace of mind and mood,” said one Philip Stein fan. “As I traveled across the country I noticed I no longer suffered the effects of jet lag,” said another. And that may be the best news of all, for both you and your little black dress. For as any fashionista knows, there’s nothing more glamorous than a women who is confident and at ease, no matter what she’s wearing.

Philip Stein Prestige 12A SKBL Men’s Watch: Watching precision

The mechanics of time

Watches are a wonder. The complexities of their inner workings are a marvel and it’s almost unbelievable that people mastered this ridiculously involved engineering feat so long ago. Philip Stein’s watch designs are also a wonder, technically and visually. In the Philip Stein Large Automatic Prestige 12A SKBL men’s watch, the two wonders are brought together. The famed watch mechanics are featured as a complementing visual element in yet another of Philip Stein’s routinely magnificent designs. In this timepiece, you can actually view precision in action, if you can focus through looking at one of the more original watch faces you’ll see.

The Philip Stein Large Automatic Prestige 12A SKBL men’s watch features two time zones, one with Roman numerals, the other with numbers. Each of the dials are ivory on a textured navy background. The primary dial includes a date window at 6 o’clock and the hands are what Philip Stein calls “skeleton blue,” providing a glinting accent to the watch face, which is protected by a double curved sapphire crystal. The back of the case features two small sapphire crystal “bull eye” windows. The watch’s movement mechanism is 1 RONDA and the watch is 5 ATM water resistant. The alligator navy 12-AN is the primary strap.

The Philip Stein Large Automatic Prestige 12A SKBL men’s watch retails for $2,455 at the Philip Stein website or other authorized sellers.

Philip Stein Active Collection 32-AGR-RBGR Men’s Chronograph Watch

Men's stylish chronograph watch
An active timepiece in the Philip Stein collection

When it comes to Philip Stein timepieces, frequency technology is a guaranteed feature. Undeniable elegance and faultless design is another. No matter what your reason is, you are sure to be satisfied with your Philip Stein selection. This particular three-eye Philip Stein Active Collection 32-AGR-RBGR Men’s Chronograph Watch exemplifies everything Philip Stein stands for in form and technology.

At first glance you notice the unique design on the watch’s face. A brown wave pattern gives a floating illusion behind the three grey colored sub-dials. Small seconds are at the 9 o’clock position, GMT second time zone sub-dial is displayed at the 3 o’clock position and the date is exposed at the 6 o’clock position. Another perk of the Philip Stein Active Collection 32-AGR-RBGR Men’s Chronograph Watch is the sapphire coated curved mineral crystal that keeps the watch scratch-free on the surface. Sapphire is the most expensive and durable crystal, approximately three times harder than mineral crystals and twenty times harder than acrylic crystals.

The most talked about feature of Philip Stein watches is most likely the previously mentioned frequency technology. The integrated frequency technology helps to balance your body’s energy flow and stimulate an improved sense of well-being.

The Philip Stein Active Collection 32-AGR-RBGR Men’s Chronograph Watch is a single time zone piece that is water resistant in up to 100 feet. The strap is an integrated grey silicone, non-interchangeable strap. The band is 180mm in length and adjustable to 235mm with a thorn buckle closure. The case is stainless steel and 42mm in diameter.

This one of a kind chronograph is priced at $500.00 and available for purchase on the official Philip Stein website.

The Chocolicious Philip Stein Modern 7CH Men’s Watch


Chocolate in virtually any form is delicious. So is the Philip Stein 7-CH men’s watch, from the watchmaker’s Modern Collection. The dial face on this watch makes me think of delicately made truffles, with layers folded over a dozen times. The wrist band that goes perfectly with the timepiece reminds me of a fresh baked brownie, the crust cracking just perfectly to reveal the tender insides. Taken as a whole, the watch puts out the same essence of finely crafted chocolate: smoothness. It is a smooth watch with a smooth color scheme evoking a smooth response.

Within the stainless steel, round case, the Philip Stein Modern 7-CH men’s watch boasts two dials in silver on a background of an almost swirl designed chocolate brown. The dial face is covered by a full sapphire window. It is 3 ATM water resistant. The primary band, which can be changed, is the Alligator Chocolate 2-ACH.

The Philip Stein Modern 7-CH men’s watch may give you a hankering for truffles. It may make people that shake your hand suddenly desirous of brownies. It may do any number of subliminal things. One thing it will do is convey an air of the smooth onto its wearer. The watch retails for $990 at the Philip Stein website and authorized sellers.
