Watches not only serve a universal way to tell time, they also make timeless fashion accessories to complete any outfit. While I’m not normally a fan of wearing a ton jewelry everyday, I do love wearing a classic watch! Recently, I discovered a luxury watch label, Alex Benlo. It’s based in the Swiss city of La Chaux-de-Fonds and Hong Kong.
I was first drawn to Benlo’s designs because they perfectly combine inspiration from nature and human wisdom to create fashion timepieces. When given the opportunity to style an Alex Benlo watch of my choice, I chose the Rose Quartz one because I felt it best resembled my style and personality.
Rooting back to history, rose quartz has always been linked to the heart throughout civilization. Each Alex Benlo watch has unique meaning and “purposes,” which is fun to know. This rose quartz watch sensitizes love, brings peace, and heals wounds. I am a firm believer in spreading peace and love, so this watch is perfect for me!
Now let’s get into the more technical details of this dreamy watch. Starting with my favorite part, the watch strap! It is a beautiful alligator leather style, which I absolutely love. I’ve been wanting a watch with this design for the longest time and was thrilled to finally get my hands on one.
As for size, this watch is on the smaller end. Lately, I’ve been more into smaller watches because they are lightweight and easy to wear on a daily basis. Plus, they seem to fit my frame better, too. The size of this one is ideal and has plenty of holes on the strap to accommodate even the tiniest wrists out there (like mine)!
This watch has a gorgeous face made with natural pink quartz. The color is just perfect for the warmer months. The timepiece looks beautiful with my summer dresses, and can be worn with casual or formal attire depending on the occasion!
