Is the watch going to be for recreational purposes, casual, dress, sports, or active wear, or are you looking for a watch simply to make a statement? With ...

 


A Look at the La Dona de Cartier Watch

The Cartier La Dona de Cartier watch is a stunningly designed luxury timepiece that illuminates the exotic preferences of a luminous film star as well as the mastery of luxurious design and superb craftsmanship - two facets virtually synonymous with the house of Cartier. A tribute to the sensual Mexican actress and Cartier patron Maria Felix, the La Dona de Cartier watch is modeled after the magnificent necklace which the star commissioned from Cartier after a visit to the Paris boutique in 1975 -- accompanying her on this trip was a live baby crocodile, which the flamboyant actress requested be a model for a stunningly original piece of luxury jewelry.

Like the original Cartier necklace made famous by Maria Felix, the La Dona de Cartier watch evokes a sensuality which is inspired by the exotic form and untamed reptilian savagery of the crocodile. Supple, fluid, and unique, the interlocking b...

Picking a Perfect Sports Watch

For some reason, sports or fitness watches are usually large and have a rugged appearance.
