Inspired by his daughter Michele, second-generation watchmaker Jack Barouh began his rise to prominence in the watch industry by creating a line of colorful children's watches that were extremely well received. Sophisticated grown-up designs followed, and ultimately a new fine watch brand was born. Michele Watches made its debut with the celebrated CSX Diamond collection, the first of many collections to follow.
Michele Barouh herself joined the company in 2000, having quite literally grown up in the business, and now serves as its Creative Director. Michele Watches transcends global boundaries, relying on international designers to create fine quality timepieces for the world market. Sophisticated and unique, the MW Collection displays cutting-edge fashion, an unwavering attention to detail, and an emphasis on quality and value that honors three generations of watchmaking tradition.
The rectangular case of the Signature Deco Diamond, Diamond Dial reflects the geometric shapes identified with Art Deco architecture. Brilliant diamonds surround the white dial with diamonds. A Swiss chronograph, subdial for the day of the week, and a stainless-steel bracelet add the finishing touch.
I love the watch face. The bracelet was too large (no biggie) so I took it to a watch place to shorten it. They showed me that one of the prongs that inserts into the watch face was bent making the band preventing it from laying flat on my arm. I bought a new leather band for it. Since the watch was completely wrapped in plastic with a tag that read “not returnable if wrapping removed” I felt I couldn’t return it.
I had this watch but it was stolen and I proceeded to get another from Amazon. I am sorry to say I had to send it back because it didn't work. Then I ordered another Deco Day watch and it worked beautifully but the prong that attaches the band to the head was defective and so I just sent it back. Now I am wondering if I should try for the 3rd time. I would only order if the watch were carefully inspected BEFORE it is sent to me. I am tired of the hassle of returning defective watches. I must add a positive comment in that all the customer reps were very nice.
I am returning the watch. The plastic was completely messed up on it and had to be removed to adjust the time on the watch and to get the watch on - plastic covering the watch band opening. Once we got that off, the stem would not turn the clock hands and you couldn't set it. There were no tags of any sort (like you may find at Nordstroms) on the watch. Even though I had to take the plastic off, I am returning it. Too high of a price to not return. If it doesn't work, you don't keep it.
I literally could not be happier wearing this watch. It makes me feel like a princess. It is so beautiful and different and distinct and extravagant but a little understated too. It comes with many, many extra links so it is huge on me but I like it because it feels like a bangle cuff bracelet that had a gorgeous watch face, not the other way around. It is elegant with just enough extra. There are three dials that I cant really figure out how to set all of them, but as long as I know the time and the date nothing else really matters. And I will admit that the diamonds on the mother of pearl face with silver watch hands can be a little hard to read, but it just takes an extra second to read it but golly, that's a beautiful watch so it really doesn't matter now, does it?
I purchased this watch and it did not work, I had the battery changed and it still did not work. The second hand moved but the hour hand just stayed at 12 pm. I returned the item and am waiting for my refund. So disappointed I really wanted this watch. Will buy it again but from a different seller.
Absolutely love love this gorgeous watch. Easy to read and very comfortable on the wrist. Very stylish and I've gotten lots of compliments.
The watch looks really nice, but it was not functional. The crown was not working.
I've had this watch for several years now. It is just as beautiful as the day I got it. Perfect balance of luxury and function and I wear it every day!
Beautiful and different. I had a Michael Kors watch which looked great, but everybody has one! It's very hard to fine a UK stockist for these watches. I bought through Luxury Timepieces, it was shipped from US and arrived within 2 days. The watch looks great, feels great as well as telling the time, day and date. I'm delighted with it. It's not too chunky, even on slim wrists. A classic deco shape that attracts comments from others.
