We have an update on the silicone watches out from Pandora named the Expressions collection. They are already available in Denmark and are slotted for release in Australia; today’s post bring news that they’ve been sighted in the US as well. While these watches are still not widely distributed, 28 Concept Stores have been selected for testing out the market, including Galleria (Dallas, Texas), Towson (Maryland), Freehold (New Jersey), and Fair Oaks (Virginia) where these are available to purchase from August 30th through November. Assuming that they sell well, the watches could appear in stores at the end of this year or early 2014.
More product details have also been provided along with these wonderful photos of the different colors, thanks to a charms addict. These timepieces feature Japanese movement rather than Swiss made and instead of the Black Diamond Crown they have stainless steel crowns adhered with enamel epoxy that matches the color of the band. The faces are stainless steel and mineral crystal (vs. synthetic sapphire) so are not scratch-resistant like other Pandora watches. These have 1-year warranty and priced at $120USD.
I feel better about the watches from these closeup live shots, but I’m not completely sold on them. Added to that the substitutions in materials and I’m quite sure that I am not the demographic for this product. Regardless, these seem to capitalize on the bold colored watch trend that’s been highly popular in Europe and up and coming in the US. Has these piqued your interest? Would you buy one of these watches?
