If you like the ceramic bracelet strap look but are seeking a demure and dainty style, the NY4980 ladies watch is a great choice and the slim black ceramic strap looks beautifully striking set against the diamante embellished bezel, black dial and silver time markers.
DKNY is notorious for its bold sense of style and therefore the NY4738 watch is a good example of this and a fun, yet glam and elegant choice for ladies. Boasting a wide and statement highly polished stainless steel bangle strap with the DKNY lettering emblazoned upon the dial, some of the letters are diamante studded which really adds the perfect finishing touch to this watch.

Marc Jacobs really is the last word in cool. He’s a born and bred New Yorker and been cited as one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine, of all publications. He produces to-die-for clothes and accessories, not only under his namesake label and diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs, but also as Creative Director of fashion power house Louis Vuitton.
Where he finds the time to design watches whilst creating fabulous designs for 3 different labels we’ll never know, but find time he has. Marc by Marc Jacobs watches are bold, fun and flirty just like the man himself. He has designed a selection of wristwear for men and women in his own image. Slightly camp, black with injections of purple and accents of gold, the
Marc by Marc Jacobs watch collection is witty and appeals across the board. His diffusion line is deliberately cheaper than his haute couture label and therefore his wristwear is very affordable. Prices start from £150, which is cheap to bag some designer wrist candy.
Shade Station has a fledgling bunch of Marc by Marc Jacobs watches on offer, having very recently started stocking them. Amongst the most popular are women’s watches MBM1148 and MBM2044. Neither could be more different, but they are both highly sought after.
Style MBM1148 is a perfect example of the humour Marc Jacobs brings to his designs. He uses his ‘Miss Marc House of Cards’ graphics in a cartoony, graffiti style to liven up the face of the watch and surrounds it with a thick white band with ‘Marc Jacobs’ written in large lettering. There’s no mistaking who designed this one! The wristpiece is finished with a sombre black leather strap which works well with the outlandishness of the face.
Marc by Marc Jacobs style MBM2044 is rather more ladylike and refined, but nevertheless bold, with a deep purple leather strap. Mounted on the strap is the face of the watch in a rectangular gold stainless steel case. The watch face is simple with a gold 2 handed movement dial and some rather military issue gold writing depicting the Marc Jacobs brand behind it.
Marc Jacob is certainly one of the coolest, if not the coolest, designer to come out of New York. He’s loved by the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Sofia Copella, and our own Victoria Beckham among others, and although we covet his designer clothes, we can’t quite afford them – but we can now afford a little bit of Marc by Marc Jacobs on our wrists!
