Characteristics of Luxury WatchesWatches have a longer, more unexpected history than you may know. Wristwatches had their origin in 19th century France, originally gracing the wrist of the Empress JosÃ©phine de Beauharnais as an elegant bracelet. Up until the early 20th century, watches were solely thought of as women's jewelry. When World War I demanded new strategies that required timed maneuvers, the pendulum swung towards watches being seen as utilitarian men's tools. Today, the 1800s have made a roaring return when it comes to women's luxury timepieces, and here at Corinne Jewelers, we're pleased to be able to offer a wide variety of Swiss-quality watches to the women who visit our showroom.
Popular Watch Collections at Corinne JewelersElle is one of our favorite designers of timepieces. Their styles are all unique, meaning that no matter which Elle watch you choose, you can be sure that you're buying a piece of art. Their timepieces are crafted with materials like rose gold plating, mother of pearl faces, and the unique tone of ceramic. But underneath the glittering femininity of Elle watches, the designer makes sure that they'll be durable for decades to come. Stainless steel bands and cases are standard for these timepieces, as well as a 2-year warranty, so you can rest easy taking your favorite Elle watch with you on whatever adventure you want to go on.
Alternatively, you may fall in love with Michele. Michele takes luxury to its furthest extent. The Sidney and Deco collections from this esteemed designer bear that out. The Sidney collection is made for a woman who adores mother of pearl faces and a whole constellation of diamonds decorating the bezel. With up to 117 glittering diamonds surrounding the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal cases, Sidney is truly glorious. Deco, Michele's most iconic collection, is made with the bold lines and forward-looking exuberance of the Art Deco period. But with a 150-foot water resistance and complications like a day-date calendar, chronograph, and central 60-second hand, Deco watches can't be mistaken for anything but supremely modern.
