Salvador says: Purple is my favorite color! This is the perfect watch to add a vibrant pop to any warm weather outfit, like a pair of cutoff denim shorts and a loose tank.
Salvador says: This timepiece is both high tech and elegant. It can go from business to casual – it’s a great everyday watch and a perfect, all-purpose gift for the new graduate. I can see the “Pitch Perfect” co-eds wearing these!
Salvador says: Talk about a great pop of color! The aqua/teal family is one of my favorites for the summertime. This watch will go great with your tan!
Salvador says: Although black is classic, the neon pink accents on this watch makes it less serious and more fun. This timepiece is a wardrobe staple – ideal for
going from day to night in style!
Salvador says: When you can't make up your mind about what color to wear, a transparent watch is the perfect choice! It matches with any outfit and has a lightweight look that fits with the season – I can picture this style paired with a bathing suit; a pool and beach must-have!
