Sexy Lingerie Meets Millions in Mouawad Jewels: Victoria’s Secret Runway Show

 |  December 6th, 2016

Last night the annual Victoria’s Secret runway show took place in Paris and all eyes were on the sexy models — with feathered Angel wings — strutting not only steamy looking lingerie but also $12 million in diamond and gemstone jewelry from Mouawad.The theme for this year’s Victoria’s Secret runway left, in my opinion, a little to be desired, with Swiss Alps type gear and other unusual looks. However, the stunning Mouawad jewelry on the necks, ears and wrists could have had you drooling if you weren’t staring so intensely at other spots. Every once in a while, we here at ATimelyPerspective have to make exceptions to the “watches only” rule even when it is not a weekend sojourn. We think this…

American Christmas Company Brings Magic to Life in New York City this Holiday Season

 |  December 1st, 2016

I was young when I saw my first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting — the streets were packed, the air was so brisk and the wind so blustery that it felt as though I was being slapped by the cold. Still, I stood there – anticipating – waiting for the moment the lights would come on. In an instant, the monumentally large tree went from dark to multi-colored lights that threw beautiful shades of blue, red, green and gold across the faces of thousands below. It is a moment that stays with you – the first tree lighting. New York’s magical holiday season transforms the city that never sleeps to a city of larger-than-life lights, angels, trees, candy canes, stars…

Close Up with the $244,0000 Zenith Academy Christophe Columb Tribute to the Rolling Stones Watch (and Mick Jagger)

 |  November 16th, 2016

Recently I had the extraordinary experience – thanks to Zenith Watches – of attending a Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas. Let me tell you, Mick Jagger hasn’t lost any of his swagger. Neither have guitarist Keith Richards and the other long-standing members. I highly doubt that — in the 1960’s when they formed their rock band – these guys thought they would still be playing and selling out concerts 50 years later. The fact is that the Rolling Stones – both original members and new members — still command amazing attendance. That may well be why Zenith watch company felt they could produce and sell a near quarter-million-dollar watch paying tribute to the Rolling Stones. In fact, the Zenith…
