Hermès introduces a miniature Nantucket watch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


In 1991, when Henri d’Origny was asked to come up with a square watch, he designed the Nantucket watch for Hermès with an elongated rectangular case and an anchor chain motif. Now the watch has been redesigned in a new avatar called the Très Petit Modèle (17 x 32 mm) and is available in steel and 18k gold versions.


The gold watch is set with 186 diamonds and features a white mother-of-pearl dial. Thee steel version features an opaline dial. Powered by a Swiss Quartz movement, the watch provides the usual hour and minute functions and is water resistant to 30 m. The watch is available with either single or double wrap-around straps available in alligator or calfskin and in a broad range of colors.

This is a lovely women’s day gift to your mom or best friend thanks to a truly timeless design and neat aesthetic. The watch is classically Hermès and will be a treasured timepiece for years to come.

Tiffany and Costco Face Off in Court over Counterfeit Ring Damages

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Tiffany filed the original lawsuit in February 2013 in the Southern District of New York, a federal court in Manhattan, alleging that hundreds – if not thousands – of Costco members bought engagement rings under the false impression that they were authentic Tiffany products. In her ruling last year, U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain ruled against Costco and shot down claims that Tiffany's trademarks were invalid because they sought to prevent others from using "Tiffany" as a generic description of a type of ring setting. Swain ultimately held that Costco, the largest U.S. warehouse chain, had, in fact, infringed Tiffany's trademarks by selling engagement rings that caused confusion among consumers due to Costco’s use of the word “Tiffany” in display case signs.

Swain found that Tiffany had met its burden in proving willfulness (where the plaintiff can show that the infringement is willful, a court may award enhanced damages, attorney fees, and prejudgment interest) by showing that Costco's jewelry buyers asked vendors to copy Tiffany designs, and that Costco employees were aware of customer confusion but did nothing to remedy it.  She further held that Tiffany should get Costco's profits from the sale of the counterfeit rings, and that it could seek punitive damages (due to its satisfaction of the willfulness requirement), under New York state law.

At the outset of the damages trial this week, in which a jury will determine Costco's monetary liability for selling rings under the "Tiffany" name, Costco attorney James Dabney of Hughes Hubbard & Reed told the court that Costco has determined that it sold about 2,500 units of the infringing rings. Moreover, he asserted the retailer's infringement relates to a problem managing certain display case signs, which has since been corrected.

To this, Tiffany's attorney Jeffrey Mitchell of Browne George Ross argued that the jeweler believes that Costco's records are erroneous, and that the number of rings sold could be as high as 11,000. He said Costco's gross profit for the rings falls somewhere between $1.8 million and $6.3 million. He also asked jurors to consider why Costco uses its in-house label on most generic products, but not jewelry. "Costco wouldn't dare call its own painkillers Tylenol or Advil. Why would Tiffany be any different? It shows callous disregard for Tiffany's trademark rights."

UPDATE (9/29/16): The jury has awarded Tiffany $5.5 million in damages. It put Costco's profits from the infringing sales at $3.7 million but held that figure was inadequate to account for the benefits the defendant derived from the sales, adding $1.8 million on top to come up with the $5.5 million figure. Still to be determined: punitives.

Chanel: 6 Things You Didn’t Know About The J12 (Part 2)

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

Without further ado, here’s Part 2 to Chanel’s 6 Things You Didn’t Know About The J12.

#4 – Its strength is also legendary, and while it isn’t indestructible, it’s pretty strong. Think of the saying ‘it takes a diamond to scratch a diamond’ and you’ll know what I mean. Even more amazing, it all begins with high-grade ceramic power being tipped into moulds that are shaped after the bezel and the links on the watch strap, before being ‘fired’ in a kiln. I didn’t know this myself either, but they shrink by almost 20% during the firing process, compressing the powder and forming the hard ceramic pieces that are then buffed and shined into the iconic components that make up the watch. #mindblown

#5 – The high-tech ceramic J12 also has health benefits because it is hypoallergenic too. Yes, you read that right. Because if one is allergic to metals like nickel, you won’t have any issues with this watch. You might laugh, but with all sorts of allergies being even more commonplace these days, it is another factor to consider when buying a timepiece, especially an expensive one that’s meant to be worn every day. #mindblown

#6 – Last but by no means least, let’s take a look at another key component of any timepiece, the watch strap. Or in the case of the J12, it’s the bracelet that’s also made of ceramic. The first luxury brand to ever use ceramic as jewellery on such a big scale, it’s also scratch-resistant, inert to chemicals and ergonomically compatible. What I’m even more fascinated about is the patented magnetic clasp that took 7 years of research and allows it to ‘spring’ open as and when you need it to. Which is important since no one should ruin their freshly manicured nails while putting on or taking off their watch. #mindblown

And that’s it folks, 6 things you never knew about Chanel’s J12, and if you missed the first part, have a look here via this link. If any of you have more questions regarding the J12 or any of Chanel’s other timepieces for that matter, drop a comment here and I’ll get back to you guys as soon as I can.

Who needs flowers when you have Jaquet Droz’s blooming Lady 8 Flower watch?

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

jaquet-droz-lady-8-flowe-cover_0


Back in 2013, celebrated watchmakers Jaquet Droz created their first ever women’s watch: the feminine and intriguing “Lady 8”, this year the brand is revisiting this classic style and adding a few upgrades. 2016’s Lady 8 Flower features the same figure 8 shape but this time the top dial has been adorned with a flower that literally blooms for the wearer.

jaquet-droz-lady-8-flower
The flower automaton takes the form of a lotus, a flower that symbolises peace in some Asian cultures. Under its sapphire crystal dome, the six petal flower opens up when you press the push-button at 2 o’clock. Gold petals surround a briolette-cut sapphire or ruby which marks the center of the flower.

Meanwhile the actual watch dial is made from white mother-of-pearl. The white gold version has an intricate guilloché sun-ray pattern that we adore. The watch is powered by two movements, one for the flower automaton and one for the actual watch. Both movements are visible through the transparent caseback. The self-winding Caliber 29 watch movement offers a 38 hour power reserve. Also visible through the back is a pirouetting oscillating weight inspired by an accordion pleat motif.

The watch is available in white and rose gold variants and is limited to just 8 units of each. Both versions have cases encrusted with 114 diamonds, but the white gold is our favorite thanks to the charming sunray design on the main dial. An alligator strap in black (for the white gold watch) or brown (for the rose gold watch) complete the timepiece.
