A blizzard of white

Flipping through the most recent issue of InStyle magazine, I was amazed by all the frosty white, and I don’t mean snowflakes! White banded watches are de rigueur for the holidays and I, for one, couldn’t be happier!

These watches run the gamut from an ultra sporty offering by Movado, to a substantial white ceramic linked version by Anne Klein, plus everything in between.

Want the look?

At the high end, Tiffany & Co. has a dazzling, diamond encrusted Atlas watch on a luxurious white band. Although I couldn’t seem to find it online, after a quick call to Robin at Tiffany & Co. and I found out that this fabulous watch is crafted of 18-karat gold, with — you guessed it – diamonds! Lots and lots and lots of diamonds. The Atlas watch comes in two sizes. The larger version will set you back a whopping $28,000 and the smaller one retails for $23,400.

A much more affordable version is the Aurora from Tommy Hilfiger. This watch has similar roman numerals and also has a round face. There’s plenty of bling but this sparkle comes from crystals. The band is a croc embossed leather and has an added bonus – it’s reversible! And for a mere $95, this is the watch I hope will be under my Christmas tree.

Let it snow!
