A Look At Inexspensive Diamond Watches For Men

Aug 23, 2008
A man would gift a diamond engagement ring to the woman he proposes to marry when she accepts the proposal and this is done not just in Spain, but in many other countries of the world. One of the most sensible gift ideas is diamond watches for men and women though the ring is extremely attractive too. These highly wanted pieces are created by some of the top line names of the industry and different jewelers concentrate on the different types of this jewelry.

Tacori the designer that has earned accolades for making diamond wedding jewelry which takes the best of both worlds - conventional patterns along with modern elegance. Hildago creates pieces that are quite colorful and even quirky, while Christian Bauer (a 130-year-old company) makes diamond jewelry to order and sells its engagement rings only through select retail outlets. The diamonds selected for these sought-after pieces are not the run of the mill diamonds, as they are carefully picked after being certified for clarity and color.

Diamond watches are one type of jewelry that is appreciated and worn by men and women. In fact, the first wristwatches were actually diamond bracelets that had a small timepiece mounted. The first of its type was seen nearly 430 years ago, as a gift from Earl of Leicester to Queen Elizabeth I which was a tiny clock round in shape and studded with diamonds which was suspended from a wristband. Perhaps this was the first authentic diamond timepiece meant for use by the ladies.

On the other hand, till WWI, men liked to sport pocket watches considering wrist watches to be too feminine. The innovation of the airplane triggered the developmental process for the first wrist watch for men too. This happened because the early aircrafts had no fuel gauge and both hands were necessary for control purposes. Thus there was a need for a timepiece which would allow the pilot to check the balance fuel and track his range as well as not leave the controls to reach out for his pocket watch.

Interestingly, the growth in popularity of diamond engagement rings was parallel to that of men's wrist watches, happening about the same time. Today the three world famous diamond watches are from Cartier of France, Citizen from Japan and Movado from Switzerland. The origin of the phrase 'runs like a Swiss watch' is from the last name. Making watches for the past 100 years, Movado is a company who has in its catalogue nearly 200 different and distinctive designs of diamond watches to choose from.
