One of the watches we featured made the list, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak (hooray!) The selection ranges from top level luxury brands like    Vacheron Constantin and Girard Perregaux , to very current models by Tommy Hilfiger and Citizen. Check out the entire  featured here.

Having been around since 1850, Waltham is one of America’s oldest watch companies. Hoping to revamp the company a bit, Waltham has been releasing some very currant and very hip new styles. 2009 brings us the Lady Amelia timepiece, a watch from their woman’s collection named for the infamous female pilot Amelia Earhart. A pale pink color and rubber band help lend to a more sporty look while the face and details such as pink cabochons create a femininity. Much like Amelia herself this timepiece is bit rebellious, both rugged and elegant at the same time.

A closer look at the Lady Amelia Watch by Waltham after the jump.

 The Breil Milano  Eros

The Breil Milano watches have a much longer history than I previously believed,making them of course Highsnobette worthy.The Eros above stopped me for a minute,love the design and the colors of course.Nowadays money is getting too rare to spluge on trends and watch  brands that came from nowhereand have no real craftmanship values… I can’t get into the watches that look like they came off of a value meal,I know you have seen them!whether they speak to you ar calculate your heart rate, no me importa…classic high end men’s watches are where it’s at for me…

*model SVT-CV74

As much as I can be a Snob about watches with hundreds of years of history,there is a crop of high end "boutique" watches, that are  making their mark as luxury Timepieces. One of them is Tsovet, whose quality ,craftamanship and design ,intergrates the "styling of engineered industrial tools,motor gauges and avionic instruments" while  remaining  sleek and sexy…that’s vital in my book…
