Philip Stein Women’s Signature 1DD-T-NM101: A Clever Take on Glamour

The Philip Stein Collections Signature 1DD-T-NM101 combines glamour with playful styling.

There’s no doubt that this Philip Stein Collections Signature Small Stainless Steel Case with Full-Cut Diamonds would be a lovely addition to any women’s wrist.  But perhaps all those feel good vibes that make you playful.  Because this watch, glamorous as it is, can’t help but wink a bit at its clever styling.

To start with there’s the face – as delicate as a snowflake.  The Nouveau Diamond Dial has scattered diamond markers that give the impression of being truly scattered and then ever so artfully rearranged with a few left loose for even greater effect.  Even more diamonds adorn the bezel for a total of 1.20 carat total weight.  A wavy, fretwork design on the crystal separates the two dials while an Arabic one o’clock and Roman seven o’clock on the lower dial is yet another example of the design juxtapositions that Philip Stein does so well.

The watch is shown with an Alligator Platinum Metallic strap that works well with the monochromatics of the watch face and adds interest by bringing in another textural element.

Interestingly, Philip Stein chose a taupe crystal for this watch.  While the slight coloration isn’t visible, it’s certain the design choice adds something to the overall effect, perhaps taking the chill off an otherwise wintry color theme.

That’s what’s on the outside. But as we all know, it’s the proprietary technology on the inside that makes the wearer more relaxed, more rested and more immune to life’s stresses.  The integrated active technology is designed to reinforce the human body’s electromagnetic field with a natural earth signal associated with calm, meditation, relaxation, and enhanced performance.

The Collections Signature 1DD-T-NM101 retails for $3800 and can be found at the Philip Stein website or an authorized reseller.

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.

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 Women’s Active Collection 31-ARGW-RBW Bespeaks Quiet Authority and Monochromatic Glamour

The embedded frequencies in Philip Stein Women’s Active Collections 31-ARGW-RBW keep the wearer centered and grounded.

Don’t let the demure good looks fool you. There’s a powerhouse behind the small rose gold steel case. This watch, from the Philip Stein Women’s Active Collections 31-ARGW-RBW, like the grounded and centered woman who wears it, speaks with quiet authority and the confidence that comes from knowing her wishes will be obeyed.

The face is a study in monochromatic elegance: the white dial and sub-dials with cleverly displayed date and second functions play off the integrated white silicone strap. The watch’s traditional circular shape, somewhat unusual in a Philip Stein, is reinforced by the multiple concentric and overlapping circular designs on the watch dial. It’s a fitting choice considering the almost mythical power ascribed to circles.

A striking feature of  the Philip Stein Women’s Active Collections 31-ARGW-RBW is the limited use of Art Deco numbers outlined in the same rose gold steel as the case at the one, two, eight, nine, ten and eleven o’clock positions.

But it’s what inside that sets this watch apart from other timepieces. In each Philip Stein watch is a thin metal plate embedded with all of the key natural frequencies beneficial to life and health, foremost among them the Schumann resonance of 7.83 Hertz waves per second, which is the earth’s chief harmonic frequency. Embedding this and other beneficial frequencies in the watch provides information to the human biofield.

As Will Stein, President of the Philip Stein Group, explains, “The biofield is the master energy field that regulates the body’s functions and tells it to relax. The holistic frequencies resonating in the watch inform and, in a sense, tune the body, and in doing so, the person becomes more in harmony with the natural earth, more centered and grounded.” In short, just like the woman who wears a Philip Stein.

Philip Stein Women’s Collections Prestige 11-VMOP: It’s What Women Want

The Philip Stein Women’s Collections Prestige 11-VMOP is in sync with both fashion and earth frequencies.

East meets west. Arabic meets Roman. Sassy meets sleek. The Philip Stein Women’s Collections Prestige 11-VMOP defies easy definition. As does, the woman who wears one.

Philip Stein is leading the news with stories about how the frequency technology – built into each timepiece – is transforming people’s lives with better rest, increased immunity and an over-all sense of well-being that hard to attain in today’s hectic, stress-ridden world.

The steel disk inside each Philip Stein watch has been treated and transformed by key frequencies, the most prominent of which is 7.83 Hertz (waves per second), that matches the frequency of natural earth. This is also the frequency in the human energy biofield when a person is relaxed or unstressed. When wearing the watch, a sympathetic resonance occurs as the human biofield begins to resonate more strongly at the 7.83 Hertz frequency. As everyone from Dr. Phil to legions of fans on Facebook and Twitter will attest, this is too good of news not to share.

Philip Stein is also turning heads in the fashion world as this fashion forward number with Pashima Red leather band proves. The Collections Prestige 11-VMOP’s curvy, polished stainless steel case and vogue mother of pearl double dial make this a watch that will go seamlessly from the office to a night on the town. A double curved spherical Sapphire crystal with anti-reflecting coating adds durability and practicality. A Pashima Pearl White leather band is available for those with more demure tastes.

For a watch that defies easy definition, the Philip Stein Women’s Collections Prestige 11-VMOP does offer one definitive answer to the age old question of “what do women want?” A Philip Stein watch, of course!

Philip Stein Mini Stainless Steel Case with Full-Cut Diamonds 4DD-F-DW Offers Feline Femininity

The band steals the show in this Philip Stein Mini Stainless Steel Case with Full-cut Diamonds 4DD-F-DW

“Women and cats will do as they please and men and dogs should get used to the idea.” Fun, flirtatious and definitely feline, this Philip Stein Mini Stainless Steel Case with Full-Cut Diamonds 4DD-F-DW will appeal to the independent woman, be she a cat (or dog) lover.

The watch features the signature Philip Stein double dials set in an elongated face with gentle side curves for added grace. The stylish face features double dials – perfect for the woman on the go – whether she’s racing between time zones or countries. Of course the watch has Philip Stein’s trademark natural frequency technology, which allows the wearer increasing immunity to the stresses of daily life. So not only will she look great when she gets there, she’ll feel great too.

The mini stainless steel case is accented on each end with a triple row of full-cut diamonds and a single row of full cut diamonds encircles the face. Diamond markers at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions and curvy, oversized Arabic numbers at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock provide a bold counterpoint to the white calf leather double wrap-around leopard band.

A nice touch is the frosted color treatment on the crystal which creates a smooth harmony with the stainless steel and diamond elements. But the band steals the show.

Philip Stein Collections Modern Women’s Small Round Stainless Steel Case Watch with Full-Cut Diamonds 6-SCDMOP

A silk leather platinum band provides the perfect monochromatic complement to the Small Round Stainless Steel case with Full-cut diamonds 6-SCDMOP

The Small Round Stainless Steel Case with Full-cut diamonds 6-SCDMOP from the Philip Stein Collections Modern elevates refined simplicity to a stunning artistic level. The Collections Modern signature Small Round stainless steel watch case is accented by a scattering of full cut diamonds.

The watch face is a study in understated elegance — a stainless steel case encloses a mother of pearl face with two overlapping dials both with silver-tone hands, while 0.13 carat total weight Scattered Diamond Markers provide the only other adornment. A silk leather platinum band provides the perfect monochromatic complement for a truly elegant look. Other band selections in silk leather olive, silk leather bronze and silk leather black offer the wearer the option of different sensibilities for different occasions.

In addition to being a leader in luxury watches, Philip Stein is known for pioneering the use of frequency technology to promote health and well-being. The Small Round Stainless Steel Case with Full-cut diamonds 6-SCDMOP makes use of Natural Frequency Technology introduced by the company in 2008. The company first premiered Electromagnetic Frequency Technology in 2003.  These proprietary technologies use the beneficial key frequency of 7-9 hertz, which is known to be harmonious and grounding to life as it springs from the chief resonance frequency of natural earth.

When worn on the wrist, the watch exposes frequencies to the biofield surrounding the person’s body, telling it, in effect, to relax. With continued wearing, a person becomes more and more resilient to the stresses of modern life. It is little wonder that celebrities such as Rupert Murdoch, Madonna and others have been regular customers for years. Oprah has twice remarked that her Philip Stein watch is one of her favorite things.
