They’re just not for me. I think they can be quite beautiful or striking, but not on my wrist. I keep buying them, though. I love my white Fossil Stella. I’ve always had my eye on a white Cartier tank. And for some reason, I find one of the most visually intriguing to be the Nixon Motif. I can’t keep it free of fingerprints – it’s got the biggest crystal i’ve ever seen and I have to touch it. I love they way they put a hint of texture into the large white monolith with few fine lines. It reminds me of that book I read when I was little called Superfudge. In the book, a painter’s wife got mad and knocked red paint over his painting in progress. He salvaged it and called the piece Anita’s Anger. In my head, this watch is what that painting looked like, minus the red.
They come in other colors and are available from Amazon.
I’m not the type to buy a watch from a company better known for clothing and apparel. That’s why I was totally suprised at the price and the beauty of this Cerruti collection. I call this the ashtray watch because of the cool shape of the case and face. They’ve also done something interesting with the seconds hand which bears the Cerruti logo and a tiny red arrow on a large rotating disk. Check out current styles available online through Amazon that are equally intriguing.
If your name starts with C, buy this one.
