When it comes to bling, we're trained to think bigger = pricier -- just look at the diamond you gave your girl. Through an electron microscope. Instead, go big affordably, with Curtis & Co. watches.
Started by an LA businessman, C&C delivers luxury, massive-faced, Swiss movement watches modeled after pricier Swiss, German, English, and French timepieces, but reasonably priced despite attracting the eye of everyone from Jeremy Roenick to Snoop Dogg (also attracting his eye? snacks). Design highlights include the Big Time WORLD, featuring a 57mm face harboring 3-or-4 time zone trackers; the beefy-cased 51mm Big Time RACE (chronograph Swiss Valjoux movement), and the 54mm Big Time AIR, which flashes temp, humidity, and lunar position (a must for the werewolf about town). Most come in two finishes (stainless steel, black case) with either carbon fiber or leather bands, and AIR's even available in 15+ colors -- if a ginormous watch doesn't capture attention, a ginormous watch w/ a hot pink face certainly will.
For its fall collection, C&C'll introduce its biggest watch yet: a 60mm monster, the perfect way to reward that special person in your life. Oh, and they also have three "Her's" models.
