I recently wrote about how Jason and I rarely have the opportunity to spend alone time together. Since the New Year, we’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to carve out time for dates, be it day or night. Since we spend lots of time on separate coasts, its a great way for us to catch up, and communicate about what’s been going on. February is a super tricky month for the both of us, because it’s one of his busiest times of year, and it is also my birthday month and Valentine’s Day. I can tell you that in the thirteen years we’ve been together, we probably celebrated those days together in the same room only half the time. Not kidding. Of course, we make up for it the following week, but it’s still sort of a drag.
This year, rather than gifting one another chocolates and roses, I decided that we’d get each other something that we both need; watches. Only recently has Jason started wearing a watch, and considering all his shoot days revolve around time and schedule, he has become quite reliant upon one. I, on the other hand, am all about form over function. I cannot get enough arm candy, and like the idea of adding a watch to complete my wardrobe.
Searching for styles that were versatile enough to wear to the playground during the day, and a night out on the town, we were drawn to Armitron. I chose their Swarovski Crystal Accented Multifunction Gold-Tone Bracelet Watch. I loved the gold tone, to pair with my gold bracelet. The mineral crystal lens has 58 clear Swarovski crystal accents around the bezel, and the textured black dial with day, date, and 24 hour sub dials add a nice finish. It’s also water resistant up to 165 feet.
Jason went with the Multi-Function Gold-Tone Three Crown Bracelet Watch. The large 44mm round gold housing has a polished bezel with outer minute track and triangle and a luminous dot at 12 o’clock. His face differs slightly from mine with a champagne background and features gold-tone Arabic numerals at 12.
We are super happy with new tickers, and I sort of can’t wait for the next special occasion, so I can add to my new arm candy collection that I’ve just started. With over 60 years of experience, Armitron not only provides stylish tools to help keep track of time, but they are affordable and stylish.
