Color Challenge

Color Challenge Jacques Leman

Matching your watch to your look sounds like a dream as in general it might be too expensive to have every color available for your wrist and most of the cheaper versions just look dreadful. Good news! Finally, I have found a brand that offers the perfect  model in many beautiful hues for a fair price. The Rome Sport Chronographs by Jacques Lemans cost between €149.00-€199.00 and come in two sizes and many different color combinations.

Have fun introducing some color into your wardrobe. How cool is this khaki one to complement my F/W 2014 military pieces?!

LoL, Sandra

The Swatch New Gent Lacquered Collection


A fresh colourful collection of ten watch designs from Swatch: the New Gent Lacquered collection combines super-sleek and lacquered surfaces with a fabulous selection of fashion-forward colours.

Pink Swatch

The deconstructed dials of each of these ten Swatch designs with the inner mechanisms left fully exposed is ensuring that any wrist wearing them remains at the centre of attention.
With the returning 80’s trend, a Swatch is a must!

In stores starting February 1st, 2012. Available for CHF 75 each.

Watch Out – Ice, Ice Baby!

Ice, ice, baby! You get in a good mood just looking at the multi-coloured display. The Belgium based watch company ICE Watch had recently invited to a press lunch to present their fun timepieces that brought back the plastic strap watches into fashion.


There was entainment galore: Graffiti, break dance to music of the Black Eyed Peas who belong by the way to the ICE watch fan crowd and colourful food.



CEO of the company Jean-Pierre Lutgen had come especially to Zurich to tell us a little more about his brand that is available in 99 countries worldwide and expected to reach 3 million sold pieces in the end of 2011. Every six weeks, there is a seasonal collection for a small period of time. The wide range of colours and the starting price at CHF 89 makes it very attractive to own many and to change them for different activities or outfits.


To me, they look as if Rolex and Swatch had a baby, and I have to admit, a very cute one that you would like to have immediatley in many colours. The box is part of the watch.


No kidding, the minute you see them, the virus catches you: „Which colour should I take? I want them all…!“


In Zurich available at Grieder, or online at Below you can find some inspirations…
