i want: Neff Zub ZenV 20 by Nooka

There is something about the Neff Zub ZenV20 by Nooka x Neff collaboration watch that I just love.

The watch retails for $150US and can be found online at Toronto retailers for Nooka include the AGO. images: courtesy of Nooka

i want: Uniform Wares 300 Series Watch

Uniform Wares is an London based luxury watch company. Product designers Patrick Bek and Oliver Fowles started the company in 2009. The company philosophy is based on classic British design that incorporates contemporary minimalism. Uniform Wares 300 Series is their first chronograph watch. My favourite style of watch is the chronograph and I’m enamored with the minimal face and strap design. You can also buy different coloured straps for the watch if you wish to switch it up. You can find Uniform Wares in Canada at stores in Montreal and Vancouver. However, there are ecommerce options at and…

i want: Rado r5.5 Chronograph in White

Rado has introduced a new r5.5 Chronograph watch in a white ceramic finish. I’m a sucker for a chronograph watch and I like the simplity of the Rado.  The watch is part of the limited edition Rene Liu, Rado Global Ambassador collection.  Rene is a Taiwanese actress, singer and writer.  Of course, the watch is too rich for my blood at $3,100 but you can find Rado at Holt Renfrew and Birks. image:  Courtesy of RADO

i want: Chanel J12 Chromatic Watches

So, Chanel PR has started to email me about all things Chanel. I’m not going to lie, my nerdy blogger self thinks this is pretty cool. The latest release was for the new Chanel J12 Chromatic watches. I normally go for bright colourful watches but it’s always good to have something that is a bit classic.  The J12 Chromatic watches are made from titanium ceramic which is a new highly scratch-resistant material almost that is almost hard as sapphire.  I really like the silvery grey finish on these watches.  It looks like liquid metal.  The perfect alternative to your standard black or…

ToyWatch Spring Summer 2011 Preview

My favourite watch company, ToyWatch came to town to show off what’s going on for spring summer 2011. I’ve been mourning my beloved Neon Chronograph Plasteramics in Atomic Orange since the clasp broke and render it unwearable. I’m awaiting a replacement and I hope it’s the same.  My wrist hasn’t been the same since. ToyWatch introduced a kids line this season. The new styles this year are solid black or solid white. This is a very big trend I’m noticing in watch land that is keeping in step with the bright colour trend. At the preview, I got to see…

Alessi Watches Fall Winter 2010 – 2011

I love Alessi and in addition to quirky kitchen products they have two new watch designs for fall 2010. Space-bimba (top row) is a product of designer Miriam Mirri and retails for $163. It’s to look like an alien and I think that’s very cute. NEKO (bottom row) is designed by Pritzer prize winner, SANAA. It’s a very simple watch but I like to think those are devil horns. It retails for $173. You can get the watches at the Alessi store in Montreal(2085 Rue Crescent) or online at images: courtesy of Alessi

Vivid Baby-G Square by Casio

This watch was my first foray into sample pulling. Coyne PR sent me this Vivid Baby-G Square watch by Casio to review for a month. I wore it around for a bit, pairing it with my bright orange Toy Watch. Eventually, I took these macro shots with the trusty Olympus E-PL1 for this post. I like the Vivid Baby-G Square. It’s a good looking watch with dual analog and digital display. It comes in a variety of bright colours like blue and neon green. I love that all watch companies are following this trend. It’s an easy way to incorporate…

i want: Fruitz Watches

I’m into watches these days. I love my Toywatch and you rarely see it without it. I covet the uberluxury of Rado watches. I relieve my youth with GShock. I like the look of these Fruitz watches and they remind me of fruit slices.  I love the colour schemes.    The watch bands are silicon.  Fruitz watches also have some kind of health claim that I don’t really buy into ask, I’m skeptical. The earth resonates at 7-9 hertz.  So does the metal Natural Frequency Technology disk embedded in a Fruitz watch. We have infused it with these key frequencies via…

i want: r5.5 White Jubile watch by Rado x Jasper Morrison

I love Rado’s incredibly expensive watches. The collaboration between Rado and and designer Jasper Morrison were some of my favourite things at The Interior Design Show this year. You can read more about the launch of the Rado x Jasper Morrison launch on designboom. The collaboration must have been popular because Rado has unveiled a new style, the r5.5 White Jubile. It’s a White High Tech Ceramic Bracelet, champagne colored sun brushed dial with 8 diamonds, sapphire crystal. It retails for, gulp, $3,000. Of course Rado can be found  at Holt Renfrew and others which you can find the website.…
