I definitely appreciate the latest trend in watch design towards different types of material such as titanium and porcelain.  I feel it changes the landscape of the watch world and expands the consumers choices for timepiece styles.

More importantly, I like that the new types of materials make more subtle statements and proves to the world that watches need not be made of gold or platinum to be beautiful.

Cartier has been creating amazing jewelry since 1847.   Unfortunately, I haven’t been a big fan of their watches until they came out with this watch (sorry to all the Cartier watch owners out there).

They also make this watch with a gold bezel, but my personal preference would be to rock the steel version.  You can pick this watch up at Tourneau for about $7,000.
