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.
