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…

Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance Adds 30 Percent More Accuracy to Watch

 |  December 5th, 2016

Recently, at an exclusive event in NYC, Armin Strom unveiled its latest creation, the Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance, which we recently introduced to you here.

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…
