Kenneth Cole’s new Automatic collection of watches
Watches always make a great gift for Father’s Day, so check out the new Automatic collection of watches from Kenneth Cole.
They sent us the KC 1631 model to check out and we loved it. The Automatics are truly unique as they offer exposed gears on both sides of the watch. Our model had a black band and a large face that highlighted the skeleton dials so it definitely grabs attention. Yet it’s stylish without being gaudy. The watches also feature a self-wind function that automatically powers your watch by the motion of your body. No batteries are required.
These watches make a great gift for the dad who appreciates style and also wants something new. The Automatics are unlike anything else in his collection. This applies to you as well. Watches make great accessories, and having something unique yet elegant will give you a great option for everyday use and also nights on the town.

Get noticed with the new Phosphor Appear watch
Watches of course serve a utilitarian function, but for many of us a watch is also a fashion statement. Some men prefer traditional watches, while others prefer something more stylish. Then there are those who look for watches to compliment their wardrobe for a particular occasion. You might wear a classic watch at the office, but turn to something bolder when hitting the town.
Phosphor sent us their new Appear watch, and as you can see above it has a unique and aggressive design. Their new line of Phosphor Appear watches smartly display the time on miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski crystals that revolve to reveal numerical time using Micro-Magnetic Mechanical DigitalTM (M3D) technology. For a more dramatic look, the time can be completely hidden behind crystals, until the button is pushed to reveal the colored, time-displaying crystals.
This is a watch that helps you get noticed, and it will be a great conversation starter with women. Many dating experts recommend wearing an accessory that can spark a conversation, and the Appear definitely fits the bill.
The Appear line offers two men’s style choices with black leather bands – one with a stainless steel face frame and one with a black face frame starting at $199. Both versions are striking yet also elegant with the black band. It may not fit every occasion, but this watch will likely be a great addition to your collection. It will also make a great gift for the right dad on Father’s Day.

New TouchScreen Watches from Kenneth Cole
Kenneth Cole recently launched its new touch screen watch series and they were kind enough to send us one to check out just in time for Father’s Day. We were impressed with the design and functionality and thought it would be a great gift for the dad who’s interested in more stylish accessories but is also comfortable with new innovations like touch screen technology.
This new touch screen watch is the first of its kind in the fashion-forward watch category. This innovative feature bridges fashion and technology so the user can use the watch’s tools with the touch of a finger. The watches take advantage of the kind of touch screen technology available on smartphones and music players.
As you can see from the photo above, the watches mix have a modern, sleek design you would expect from Kenneth Cole, maintaining the brand’s signature, classic look with a stainless steel round case paired with a silicon strap. Don’t be put off by the bright display. The digital information only brightens up when you want to see better, and the effect is not that extreme. In its normal state the digital display is very muted so it doesn’t distract from the elegant design.
The watch functionality includes 32-City world time and an alarm, stopwatch and light up screen. It’s easy to use so it’s practical for everyday use and for more formal setting, and it’s perfect for the dads who want to feel younger. At a suggested retail ranging from $125 to $175, it also won’t break the bank.
