Story by Kranz & Ziegler first came out with new watch faces for their Fall/Winter 2013 release but it’s not until now that they’ve been released worldwide with the Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. I’ve been dying to try these out ever since I saw a sneak peek last year and I’m so happy to show them off. For those of us that don’t like to wear too much on our wrist, there’s been an age-old debate – watch or bracelet? While I love stacking my bracelets, I generally don’t wear anything else with my watch as I’m afraid to scratch the charms and it feels too bulky. A watch charm is the perfect solution, and I’m incredibly impressed with Story’s execution of this design.
It’s not easy to integrate style with the dimensions needed for a watch but Story has done it beautifully. I imagined that their watch faces would be large and perhaps not flattering, but this is not the case at all. I was delighted to open my Story packaging and find the watch face elegant and the perfect size for their bracelets. I choose the beautiful round watch with white face and a cubic zirconia floral design. It’s practical, gorgeous, and sits so well on the bracelet, although it has a slightly raised profile. Now I can wear my fabulous Story bracelets and have a time piece!
The Story by Kranz & Ziegler watches come in a variety of shapes and finishes. There’s round and square, predominantly with white faces, and in silver, gold, dark, and rose gold which is brand new for the season. They range in price from $89 to $189, depending on the design. These are incredibly versatile and I can’t tell you how happy I am with the combination of functionality and form.
These time pieces only fit on Story bracelets, but they are compatible with their leathers and gemstones bracelets. I have been absolutely obsessed with this brand since I found them a couple years ago, and I manage to squeeze in one or two bracelets when my budget allows for it. They’re worth the investment and offer the best leather bracelets on the market, especially if you like the edgy glam style. To find your nearest retailer, check out their store locator – they’re worth a look! How do you feel about wearing watches with your bracelets? Do you like the watch charm?
