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.
