GUESS what?? We have an all–new range of Guess watches to tempt you with! The iconic Eighties brand, famous for launching the careers of Claudia Schiffer and Brooke Shields, has released a range of well-designed, sophisticated watches for the Autumn – and we’ve got them here at Shade Station!
The Guess Autumn 2010 campaign was shot by celebrity photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, who was responsible for Guess’s seductive, girl next door pictures when the label was at it’s height in the Eighties. Ellen is known for her very sexy style of photography and over the years both the label and photographer have had great success working together… The current campaign is a nod towards a massive trend this A/W 2010 – the Fifties. Think ladylike demure, kitten heels, ankle socks and full skirts. Think Mad Men.
There are a few pieces in the Guess watches collection that would fit very nicely on a well-turned wrist as part of a Fifties ensemble. Pretty and delicate the ‘Petite Autograph’ Guess watch is very chic. With a slender gold plated bracelet strap that widens slightly across the top to allow the small rectangular face to sit on top, this watch has ‘Guess’ picked out in diamante running vertically through the dial. It’s stylish and neat and would look wonderful with this season’s Fifties trend.
Guess watch ‘Q&A’ would also add a polished finish to any vintage outfit. Available in gold or silver plate, this narrow bracelet watch features a tiny square face and the Guess signature question mark defined in diamante over the dial.
Make this Autumn your season of Fifties retro and have a prolonged Grease moment! Just don’t forget your Guess watch to add the finishing touch…

The Guess brand has always been renowned for its contribution towards helping charitable causes and raising money for those in need and less fortunate. The latest news on this front is that Guess along with Sequel AG, the exclusive worldwide distributor of Guess Watches, are raising money for ‘Maison Chance’, a project dedicated to building a new school in Vietnam for disabled and disadvantaged children. They are doing this via the launch of a new fundraising campaign ‘Faces to Watch – Time to Give’ which has involved the addition of a sleek and striking new ladies watch called ‘Time To Give’.
A little information on the charity itself – the ‘Maison Chance’ project which means ‘House of Luck’ and part of the Village Chance project was founded by Swiss resident Tim Aline Rebeaud who has spent the last 15 years building and running Maison Chance in Vietnam. The scheme provides educational and vocational training to 200 children and 70 handicapped people, as well as residence and care for 60 people with serious disabilities.
In order to raise funds for the Maison Chance, Guess has launched an incredible and limited edition ‘Time To Give’ ladies watch. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this watch will go directly to help fund the Maison Chance project.
The Guess watch, in true Guess style is sleek, striking and ultra stylish. With a gold plated case and diamante embellished bezel, the strap boasts a python skin effect strap and dial to ensure that you stand out from the crowd!
In addition to raising funds from the proceeds of the ‘Time To Give’ Guess watch, Sequel AG and its partners, distributors and manufacturers will hold a number of special events and other fundraising initiatives to support Maison Chance.

The Background Behind Guess
Guess was quite possibly the brand that made our number one wardrobe staple item – the ever faithful jeans, as popular as they are today. When the Marciano brothers launched their line of blue jeans, the idea of wearing jeans suddenly became more glamorous and consequently became a huge trend that has stuck. Before Guess launched these blue jeans, denim was always regarded as simple daytime work wear and not at all perceived as stylish or sexy. When the Guess jeans hit the shelves and the celebrities were rarely seen without a pair, this was all about to change.
Therefore when Guess extended its product lines and launched its range of Guess watches, the new accessory soon became the hot item to own and this is still the case today. Guess watches are considered to be highly stylish and the numerous designs available are worn by celebrities all over the globe as the brand’s unique and sexy styles allow them to differ from other labels. The typical wearer of Guess is said to be the type of person who likes to look great and is fashion savvy but by the same token has the ability to set their own unique style.
Two New Styles to Look out for!
In order to celebrate its 25th birthday, Guess recently launched a range of super glamorous watches and now there are two further additions to look out for which are similar in style with a slim black leather strap and prominent round dial. The ladies Heart To Bling Guess watch with its black croco leather strap, diamante embellished bezel and heart dial also featuring a number of diamante stones is the ultimate in feminine sophistication and has that glamorous Guess edge but with a strong sense of sophistication. A must have for all bling lovers! The next new style is the ladies Question Bling watch, again with a black croco leather strap and diamante embellished bezel. This watch dial is striking black with the question mark Guess logo featured in diamante stones. These two new watches definitely have fantastic contemporary designs, edgy glam statement style and the ultimate wow factor!
Listening to the Consumer
Back in June 2009, Guess presented at the Fashion Piper Jaffray Annual Consumer Conference in New York which featured a panel comprised of teenagers. These teens were students who throughout the conference discussed a range of topics relating to the teen market including the latest trends in electronics, food, clothing and accessories. Using this first hand insight from their target consumer, Guess can then take any feedback, suggestions, needs and wants and incorporate this into their future designs. Listening to what your potential customers want from your band is essential in creating the right products and conferences such as this allow brands such as Guess to get their product and marketing strategies accurate and help them to design what customers really want.
Guess watches are a great way of accessorising your look with a beautiful and sparkling edge. The brand is super glamorous but has a reasonable price tag, allowing slightly younger customers to enjoy the Guess style. With many different styles available ranging from classic to dressy and everything in between, Guess watches also incorporate a hint of bling making them look wonderfully sexy, fun, youthful and stylish.

We all know that Guess is one of the most glamorous, sexy and sparkly brands around, and their strikingly gorgeous range of watches are the perfect representation of this. However, behind the glossy advertisement campaigns, beautiful models and incredible products, Guess is actually a brand that strongly believes in giving back.
Over the past few years, Guess on numerous occasions has demonstrated that giving back is a core part of their brand philosophy and integrates this into the way they work. In 1994, The Guess Foundation was established and is dedicated to creating and encouraging positive change in the community. Contributing in a positive way to worthy causes and the environment is such an important element of Guess that was made part of the company’s mission statement and prompted the launch of GUESS for E.V.E.R. Programme (Employees Volunteering Energy/Expertise & Resources). This programme involved Guess employees gathering supplies for victims of natural disasters, or purchasing toys for needy children during the holidays.
Very recently, Caroline and Olivia Marciano who are the teenage daughters of the owner of Guess Maurice Marciano saw a feature on the Oprah show about how Invisible Children supporters all around the world camped out for days until rescued by local media and powerful figures in order to raise awareness of the war in Uganda and to emphasise how children can go unseen for weeks leading to disastrous consequences. Marciano’s daughters persuaded their father to use Guess to help the cause and the end result was a unique line of Guess t-shirts and tanks for men and women, and 100 percent of the proceeds went to the Invisible Children organisation. The two girls led the project themselves and have done a superb job of spreading the word. Celebrities such as Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell have been spotted sporting the charity t-shirt.
The Guess brand believes that it has a responsibility to create an exciting, trendy, high quality and glamorous range of products for its customers whilst its employees are given the opportunity to volunteer in the community and support worthy causes. When you know a brand has good morals and is always proactive in giving back, this definitely makes you more emotionally attached to that brand. The range of Guess watches are stunning and comprise of a variety of glitzy and glamorous watches such as the new Mini Triangle Guess watch in addition to girly – the Willow and of course, elegant and classic – such as the G Hour. Whatever your style preference, there is a Guess watch to make you feel incredibly glam and feminine for every occasion.

The super cool, stylish and sexy brand Guess was founded back in the early 1980’s by the French Marciano brothers who favoured an exquisite yet fun and flirty style. First famous for its range of jeans which sold off the shelves in almost record time, the brand soon became hugely popular around the world. What is loved about Guess is that it represents all American style with European appeal.
Indeed, the Guess range soon extended to accessories and Guess watches are a favourite among many celebrities and fashionistas due to the fresh and innovative designs with that element of bling that every girl (or most) desires! Guess watches consist of a wide range of styles from casual to super sexy and everything in between. There are some wonderful new season styles which have recently launched including the demurely named Willow timepiece. Chic, sophisticated and with a real look of indulgence, this watch has a gold stainless steel dial with diamante embellishments and a tan croc leather styled band. This is definitely a statement watch which is sure to get you noticed (think Paris Hilton style!) but also comes in black and gold if you prefer something a little more neutral. The Mini Triangle Guess watch is extremely visually striking with a stark white dial and leather band and silver diamante stones around the perimeter of the face. This watch also features the classic Guess triangle logo on the dial and is a simple yet stunning design.
I absolutely adore anything girly, sparkly or pink so Guess is a personal favourite of mine as it is completely in tune with my style. Fear not though as if you are perhaps prefer something edgy or funky and bling isn’t your thing then there are some gorgeous styles such as the new Altitude watch which perhaps appeals to a more urban sense of fashion. This is a men’s watch but would also look very cool and funky on girls.
Guess is definitely a fashion forward brand (just take a look at the sleek and sexy advertising campaigns) and the range of watches is extremely diverse but each model is still very much in keeping with the brand’s themes and values. Guess likes to really get inside the mind of the potential wearer and recognises that providing various styles for different preferences and personalities is absolutely essential. There are some gorgeous Guess watches to look out for this season and as ever, it is one of the hottest brands to be seen in!
