Hermes H-Our Watch
I would not buy this watch today—I am saving my money for things like real estate. But ten years ago when I purchased it (except with a strap in green, my favorite color) a) it only retailed for $975 or thereabouts and b) I had a boyfriend who worked at Saks. They had this fantastic thing called the "friends and family discount," wherein I, as most certainly more than a friend, but definitely less than family, received 40% off anything in the store (including sale items). I did some damage in those days. But the amazing part is, with the exception of the Gucci bag that I purchased for $400 (can you believe Gucci bags were under $700 ten years ago?) and sold on eBay, I still wear the other items—a suit from a Michael Kors diffusion line that no longer exists, some Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti linen pants, and of course, the Hermes watch—on a regular basis. You may try to befriend someone who works at Saks, but I'm pretty sure they changed the rules, i.e. Hermes is no longer included.
Your apartment should be tasteful and clean, but no too slick or self conscious. Keep a beautiful clock at your bedside.
Go bright this winter with a new timepiece in a bright color. Hermes presents the Medor Watch: Swiss-made, quartz movement, stainless steel case with silvered dial, all on an orange smooth calfskin strap. Lovely.
Ohhhh if only I could afford... Hermes anything. But I love this watch so much. It's got the signature orange Hermes color and a lovely faceplate.
