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.

  

Bottoms Up Timepiece review

Happy Hour Timepieces contacted us regarding their new “Bottoms Up” watch that helps makes happy hour more fun than ever! The new Bottoms Up watch is not your normal wrist watch as this accessory sports a patented bottle opener built seamlessly into the band buckle. That’s correct folks your watch can now double up as a back up bottle opener. (That’s a very cool idea in my book) I tested the opener on a fine Domestic beverage for review purposes only (ha ha) and it worked like a charm.

This watch also look sharp! Our review watch has a thick black leather strap with a gold gradient face which looked very sporty and stylish. I had more than a few compliments and when I told them that the Bottoms Up timepiece can also open bottles it quickly became a conversation “piece” as well.

You can learn more at http://www.happyhourtimepieces.com/ and for a suggested retail price tag of $149.95 this could be a great watch to add to your stable of timepieces.
