I have been on the lookout for several years for a great basic Timex. There was no question that it would work (take a lickin' and keep on tickin'), and I knew it couldn't cost too much. I thought it may be a men's watch or one with humor (think 70s LED) or something edgy or blingy that would make me say, "Yes! This is my Timex." I looked but could not find the right Timex.
Until I saw the watches in the Spring 09 Collection. Now I can say "Yes, yes, yes!" and I actually found more than one!
1. Women's Crystal Collection, 52 Swarovski® Crystals, Leather Strap, Stainless steel Case $90 Product Code: T2N072
This one reminds me of a diamond Charriol watch that I saw and adored (however a far stretch you think that may be!) But at least when I wear this one I can keep my diamonds safe at home…
2. Women's Bracelet Collection, Classic Rectangle Stainless Steel Bracelet $65 Product Code: T2N046
What? Oh no, that says Timex...you must be mistaken…not Tiffany…
3. Women's Crystal Collection, 66 Swarovski® Crystals, Stainless Steel Bracelet $100 Product Code: T2N030
I plan on wearing this one…to the beach! Or maybe to the gym, to lift weights.
4. Men's T Series Automatic in Stainless Steel $175 Product Code: T2M976
My boyfriend left this watch behind and I've been wearing it ever since …on weekends.
5. Men's T Series chronograph with steel case, leather strap $150 Product Code: T2M985
One of my other boyfriends left this watch on the yacht and I've been wearing it ever since… along with his white shirt, tied effortlessly at my waist.
