As I've said before, I think of watches as functional jewelry and I love my Rebecca Minkoff Baby G. However, because I only do it once every six months, I forget how to toggle between the standard and daylight savings settings, so I have to check the manual.

Once again, I turned to the fine folks at Russell Korman Jewelers - they are a licensed Tissot dealer, and their watchmaker, Dennis Warner is terrific to work with. Mechanical watches are truly works of art, and the folks who build and repair them are true craftsmen.

I got to know Dennis initially when he rebuilt a watch I planned to give my husband as a gift. My husband is not much of a jewelry person - but he loves watches.

When I gave the fully restored watch to my husband - he was speechless - and I knew my gift was a success. He wears it almost every day (even though over the course of our marriage I have given him a total of 7 watches).
I change my watches up a little more than my husband - and when I want a watch for a special occasion, when I just want a dressier watch, or if I just feel like having a little bit of Mom with me, I reach for her Tissot, wind it up and off I go.
Until next time.
