Saxon: A nautical-inspired diamond timepiece from Just Bling
Before you think anything, don’t let the name Just Bling put you off. The American watch brand’s diamond encrusted pieces might at first seem more suitable for a rapper than a gentleman, but you’d be surprised by the selection of wearable timepieces they have on the menu.
Besides, if you’re looking for a diamond watch, then something tells us you’re not exactly one who puts much stock in being discreet. If you’re on the hunt for something that strikes the balance between elegance and a little bit of statement, then Just Bling’s Saxon might be worth considering. Of course, there’s always Vacheron or Audemars, but some may find the very limiting price tags just a tad overwhelming.
The nautical aesthetic of the Saxon gives off an aura of an unapologetic, accomplished man. The round bezel, with engraved detailing and 16 encrusted diamonds totaling 0.30 carats, together with the mother of pearl-accented dial, is finished in an alluring rose gold. Be warned, at 46 millimetres wide, this watch is massive and should not be worn by someone looking for a thin, sleek watch.
The glass is synthetic sapphire, which means it’s virtually scratch-proof. Don’t worry about the synthetic part, as these days only Patek Philippe still uses natural sapphire in their watches.
The refinement of the circular shape and the industrial angularity of the cut-out buttons create a stark contrast that represents the clashing interests of today’s modern man. The braided leather strap caps off the overall design with an unmistakably masculine feel.
While this piece does not monitor your heart rate or connect you directly to Langley, it does its job of telling the time and date fairly well. The mother of pearl sub-dials give information on the month, the day of the week and where in the day’s 24-hour radius you’re currently at, while the date is shown at the three o’ clock position.
This Swiss Quartz movement watch is waterproof at up to 300 M, so in case you fall in a scuba-deep puddle while walking on the street, the watch is safe.
