Adorn Her with Mikimoto

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (14)

 

Cleopatra’s wager to Marc Anthony was that she can “consume the wealth of a nation in a one meal”. Marc Anthony found this hard to believe until Cleopatra dissolved her pearl earring in a vinegar cocktail and drank it. It was none but a pearl that jumpstarted a love story worthy of being told and told again. In ancient times, pearls have been believed to have medicinal attributes, symbolize purity, love and even have mystical powers. They were once exclusive to the use of royalty. But if one Japanese man, in the person of Mikimoto Kokichi, would have his way, these gems should be available to every woman. And he surely did. He single-handedly shaped the cultured pearl industry in Japan during his lifetime. It was a life’s work devoted to perfection and love of craft. Mikimoto had combined technology and modern design to produced pearls synonymous to supreme commitment and passion. It is never hard to find a gift to symbolize purity, love and care as Mikimoto pearls makes the search easy. May it be her birthday, your anniversary or even just a gift on the fly; adorn her with Mikimoto – the finest cultured pearls in the world. For Mikimoto pearls, visit Shreve & Co. – authorized dealer of these best cultured pearls in the world.

Art around the Wrist

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Piaget (14)

 

Paintings and art pieces are usually too heavy to carry around to show off to friends. But Piaget makes it easier for anyone to carry around an art piece for others, and for him, to enjoy. Enameling has been a tradition at Piaget’s. It is a continuous tradition to create watches with miniature paintings thus infusing the complications and sophistication of science with the elegance and beauty of art. Piaget’s obsession with art is evident in such pieces as the Protocole XXL Paris and New York. Using the the Protocole as the canvas, Piaget now paints with enamel all over the face of the watch covering every surface. This miniature painting is done on 18k white or yellow gold. They could’ve used any other material but hey, it’s Piaget. They have reached another level of obsession for perfection in art and craftsmanship. The watches themselves are pretty hard to make and more so the enamel paintings embracing them. Every enameled piece is reportedly fired almost twenty times in the oven for perfection. Most of the time, art pieces belong in the galleries but a Piaget belongs around your wrist. To get some Piaget’s around your wrists, visit Shreve & Co. – authorized dealer for Piaget.

Hardworking timepiece

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Bell & Ross (13)

Limited Edition Bell & Ross BR 01-92 Compass Watch

Bell & Ross is flying high as it is diving deep. Inspired by an aircraft’s cockpit instrument and relied upon by divers for its pressure-resistant feature, Bell & Ross evolved into a timepiece for seriously solid watches that can stand environment pressure in aviation, military and marine uses. Bell & Ross was first issued in 1992. It would soon enjoy solid admirers among divers for its ability to withstand 1,000 meters of dive pressure, with special models like the Hydromax that “swims” in special fluid to counter the external pressure. Essentially, Bell & Ross follows four principles in quality watchmaking that ensure its myriad collections of timepieces live up to the name. First, the brand may be French, but it has Swiss precision technology at the core. Each part is engineered to work in sync with the rest in the most adverse environment. Second, it can handle water pressure at great depths. Third, the controls and features are designed for optimum visual even in difficult situations, such as when deep-diving or at high altitudes. Fourth, each Bell & Ross enjoys specific features for users with specific needs as pilots and divers have different timekeeping uses, and not the least, persons who demand their watch to work hard with them in extraordinary or everyday situations.

Did your train arrive on schedule?

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Ball (15)

 

 
If yes, the engineer was probably wearing a Ball Watch.  Although it is a big “probably,” train schedules and the Ball Watch founder had first crossed path more than a century ago that would define the brand’s signature today: sturdy, reliable, accurate timepieces. Its founder, Webster Clay Ball, who had an apprentice in jewelry making, was commissioned in 1891 by U.S. railroad officials to establish precision time-keeping after an engineer’s watch malfunction and caused a train collision in Ohio. Prior to that, Webster had already built a reputation for precision movement; he was the first jeweler to bring the city of Cleveland in sync with the Standard Time in 1883 using the U.S. Naval Observatory’s time coordinates. Ball used strict manufacturing process and materials to achieve sturdy, precision-grade timepieces and, soon, the Ball Watch brand was born. Today, a Ball owner enjoys an accurate movement, antimagnetic, water-resistant, and shock-resistant timepiece that uses a 5-position reference and the physics of isochronism, the ability of mechanical parts to keep consistent movement despite varying external forces. A Ball watch is valued by sports people and, yes, train operators who demand accurate movement to keep their run schedules on track.
