Alex Benlo | Rose Quartz Watch

Posted on 2 m read

***Special thanks to Alex Benlo for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

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.

Pinit

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.

Pinit

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)!

Pinit

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!

What are some distinct meanings or style designs you look for in a watch?

    Oh babe, if someone is spreading love in the world it truly is you and hence this watch is perfect for you as you’re the ambassador of what’s good in this world and the rosé quartz watch from Alex Benlo is really a stunning piece of luxury. It is unique and one of a kind, and those are the qualities I look for in a watch as well. Speaking of spreading love, it’s time we spread love over a chat SOON as this is getting ridiculous, haha. Miss you babe!

    I am a tomboy at heart, so I mainly look for a larger face when it comes to my watches. Though I have a small wrist, I love big watches. I don’t know what my problem is, haha! You’re right btw, that watch was definitely made for you. It looks beautiful with your dress indeed 🙂

      I enjoy wearing larger faced watches as well — I have a few actually! But for everyday wear I prefer a lightweight, small one that I can easily throw on without feeling like it’s super heavy throughout the day, and this Alex Benlo watch is just that! Thanks for stopping by darling! xo
