Anne Klein offers eco-friendly watches

ANNE Klein is introducing the Considered Collection, the brand’s first eco-friendly watch collection. Made with sustainable materials, these are solar-powered watches — each timepiece is rechargeable by the sun or any light source thanks to its special reservoir of solar energy that is completely accessible. The watches are made with ethically-sourced Swarovski Crystals and are crafted to be lead-free. Instead of plastic, the watches are now made with natural cotton and wood fibers. Each watch is encased in an elegant box made with 80% recycled waste and an organic cotton pillow. The Anne Klein Considered Collection will be exclusively available at Zalora starting Sept. 15. There will be a special introductory offer at 20% off from Sept. 15 to 21, and buyers have a chance to receive a Anne Klein Limited Edition Cosmetic Bag while supplies last. Anne Klein Watches are exclusively distributed by Rustan’s Marketing Corp.

The new Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum

MONTBLANC unveils the new Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum timepieces that interpret one of the most contemporary and useful complications — the world time complication — in a distinctive way. The current timepieces include round, polished pebble-shaped cases, like those found on antique pocket watches; onion-shaped crowns with the recognizable Montblanc emblem; refined dials with the iconic exploding star guilloché pattern; and Sfumato alligator leather straps coming from the Pelletteria, Florence, Italy. Montblanc is introducing two Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum models, reinterpreting the Orbis Terrarum timepiece originally launched in 2014. One version in stainless steel features a blue aesthetic, and the other one in 18 K rose gold, limited to 500 pieces, is in shades of dark brown and light brown. The watches feature a modern, in-house world time complication that is both practical and easy-to-use, and presents a classical and modern watchmaking style. They are powered by an automatic movement equipped with a Manufacture complication, developed in-house by Montblanc’s engineers. The idea was to create timepieces with a Manufacture world time function that would be simple to set and intuitive to read. Once set, they indicate all 24 time zones at a glance and show whether the cities are in daytime or nighttime. While travelling, the watches are easy to set thanks to a single pusher. The watches are water-resistant to 5 bar (~ 50 meters). Montblanc is available at Rustan’s Makati (0917-525-2958), Rustan’s Shangri-La (0917-598-6532), and Rustan’s Cebu (0917-802-2913). Contact the stores and a sales associate will assist with any inquiries, order confirmation and payment transactions. There is complimentary delivery for a minimum purchase of P 2,000. Pick-up only available in Cebu for now.
