  • Introducing: Nomos Nachtblau Coming Soon to Ace Jewelers!

    Nomos Neomatik Nachtblau Collection Nomos Neomatik Nachtblau Collection

     

    As if we couldn't love Nomos even more, the master watchmakers in Glashütte have out done themselves yet again. Earlier this Summer, Nomos introduced the Tetra in 'nachtblau.' Today, Nomos unveiled their newest models featuring this midnight blue dial. The Metro, Minimatik, and Tangente are now available with the blue dial, and truly are the icing on the cake.

    The 'nachtblau' dial is notorious for being difficult to produce and get the color absolutely perfect. The watchmakers at Nomos see no challenge as too difficult, so they went ahead and began producing it in three additional models. The rich blue color gives the Nomos watches a little bit more of a dressy look, while adhering to Nomos "Form Follows Function" ethos.

    The nachtblau Nomos will be a festive addition to your watch collection this holiday season. We have ordered one of each model, so get yours while they last!

  • Miss Ace Jewelers Tried and Tested the Petite Promesse from Baume & Mercier

    The Petite Promesse from Baume & Mercier was one of the SIHH Novelties that I liked the  most this year. I am Jenna from Team Ace Online, also known as @MissAceJewelers on Instagram. I am a goldsmith, so when a luxury watch brand manages to bridge the gap between jewelry and timepiece- I am pretty excited. I was lucky enough to try out the Petite Promesse for a week to share my review with you.

    The Petite Promesse is small in size as its name suggests. A mere 22mm case diameter is perfect for someone who would like an elegant and delicate watch. What sets the Petite Promesse apart from other small watches, is the double wrap around leather strap or stainless steel bracelet. The double wrap around straps are right on the #ArmParty trend of layering and stacking up your jewelry with your watch.

    The Petite Promesse is available in three different versions, and each version comes with an additional, single wrap around strap. The ref. 10288 is the Cerulean Blue strap (€2,450 including VAT), which was the model I chose to wear for a week. I usually wear rose gold, so personally I didn't want to wear a watch with a steel bracelet (ref. 10289, €2,750 including VAT). I would love to see Baume & Mercier extend the Petite Promesse collection to include a dual tone version. The ref. 10290 is the orange version, which was tempting as there are 0.32 carats of diamonds set around the bezel, where was the blue and stainless steel versions only have 0.18 carats of diamonds. I am biased as orange isn't my favorite color, but I find it a little impractical that the most expensive version of the watch (€3,200 including VAT) is fitted with an orange strap.

    The Petite Promesse is quite simple in style; I really love the small details. I thought that I would have preferred the version with more diamonds (diamonds are a girls best friend, right?), but after wearing the blue version for a week, I love how well thought out the placement of the diamonds are. The mother of pearl dial is perfectly round, but the case is actually oval. On each side of the bezel there are diamonds cascading in size. The pave diamonds come to an end at the top and bottom of the case. There are diamond hour markers at just 12 and 6 o'clock. The delicate balance between the pave diamond bezel with the hour markers is really beautiful on the cerulean blue and stainless steel versions (ref. 10288 and 10289). The orange version has diamonds that go around the entire bezel. I admit at first I thought the more diamonds, the better. Since wearing the watch, I changed my mind. Sometimes less is more.

    If I could work together with Baume & Mercier for the next generation of the Petite Promesse, I would consider making it available in a few other sizes, but sticking with the Petite Promesse design elements that set it apart from the Promesse collection. I have a pretty small wrist, and the 22mm case made the watch feel quite dressy because it even looked small on my wrist. When fitted with a black strap, I could absolutely see myself wearing the watch with a cocktail dress to a formal dinner or gala. While the cerulean blue and orange straps definitely off a more daytime vibe, it didn't feel like a daytime watch because the size. I would also consider replacing the orange strap with a more practical color for street style. The good news is that the double wrap around strap is available to order separately in red, purple, black, and white.

    The Petite Promesse is powered by a quartz movement. There is not a crown on the side of the watch; to change the time you need to take a small, pointy object such as a toothpick and push in the button on the back of the watch. I think that not having a crown on the side makes the watch more elegant looking. As a goldsmith, I admittedly appreciate automatic or hand-wound movements a little more. I could see myself wearing this watch on an almost daily basis if it was made just a little bigger. I really like the fashion forward strap on the Petite Promesse, so an automatic movement would be a practical choice. If Baume & Mercier could make a Miss Ace Jewelers Special Edition Petite Promesse, I would vote for a slightly larger case, automatic movement, dual tone (perhaps gold hands and hour markers), and a more practical color for the dubble wrap around strap.

    The Petite Promesse starts at €2,450 including VAT for the cerulean blue model (ref. 10288). The stainless steel version retails for €2,750, and the orange version with the fully set bezel is €3,200 including VAT. Whichever model you think is your favorite is absolutely subjective. The good news is that we have the Petite Promesse in stock at Ace & Dik Jewelers, and online in our eBoutique here.

  • Ace Jewelers Presents: Montblanc Augmented Paper

    There's nothing that gets us more excited at Ace Jewelers than when one of our brands combines technology with their high-end luxury products. Montblanc introduced the Augmented Paper, which transfers hand written notes and sketches to a mobile device or tablet.

    The Augmented Paper is presented in an Italian calfskin envelope, which holds the augmented paper, digitizer, paper, USB charger and Montblanc Skywalker pen. The hand written notes and sketches can be transferred and uploaded to the mobile device with just a click of a button. It is truly like magic. Furthermore, the digital version of the hand written notes can be transitioned to digital text in over 12 languages, including English, Chinese, German, Russian and Spanish, which can later be edited on the computer.

    Now, lets get down to the details. The Augmented Paper has a battery life of eight consecutive hours. For normal working use, the battery will last around one week with a full charge. The USB charging cable makes it easy to charge on the computer or the wall. The Augmented Paper can be connected to the Montblanc Hub where users can store and organize their notes for easy access at a later time. If you aren't able to immediately connect to the Montblanc Hub, don't worry. The Augmented Paper can store up to 100 pages of notes at one time.

    All in all, Montblanc's Augmented Paper is perfect for people who love to jot down notes, make some sketches, but don't like the hassle of having to retype notes or use a scanner. The time saving paper combines technology with what Montblanc knows best- producing luxury writing instruments and leather accessories.

    The Montblanc Augmented Paper will officially be for sale as of October 1st. Pre-Order yours now before they're all sold out! 

  • Oris Divers Sixty Five: Green Edition

     

    600 Oris Divers Sixty Five Green

     

    Diving watches rose to popularity in the 1960's when the recreational sport was seen as an activity for those who could afford the gear and extensive training that goes along with scuba diving.. In 1965, Oris released their now famous diving watch. This year at Basel World, they re-launched the Divers Sixty Five with modern updates such as a blue dial and vintage touches. After the huge popularity of the model, Oris has outdone themselves yet again by re-releasing the Oris Divers Sixty Five with a green dial. The vivid color takes inspiration from the greenery found at the bottom of the ocean floor.

    The green model features the same functions as it's blue counterpart, but it is offered on three different straps in addition to a stainless steel bracelet. Oris reintroduced the rubber strap that was first introduced in the original Divers watch. They also designed a black and green striped nato strap with a stainless steel bracelet that mixes comfort with modern taste. Lastly, there is a distressed brown leather strap that gives off a more vintage vibe to match the retro index.

    Every four years, we love watching the Olympics and cheering on our favorite athletes. The Paralympics are in full swing and the athletes continue to inspire us at Ace Jewelers. Another perk of the Olympics, are the Special Edition watches that Omega produces to commemorate the event.

    The Seamaster Rio is very special because of the unique dial. The dial features the same print as the print on the pavement next to the famed Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. The black and white wave print has been the design of the boulevard since the 1930's. The red, green and yellow markers on the bezel is directly out of the palette from the Olympic logo.

    We have some very special Olympic pins that we brought back from the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games that we want to give away with the purchase of a Seamster Rio, while supplies last. This special offer is perfect gift the ultimate Olympic fanatic.

    Want more information on the Seamaster Rio? Shop the model online here, or drop by Ace & Dik Jewelers on Van Baerlestraat 46. 

  • Ace Must-Have: Akillis Python Earrings

    I am always on the lookout for new cutting age designs in the jewelry world. Over used motifs of flowers and delicate lace patterns in jewelry can feel a little bit tiring after a while. When we first discovered Akillis jewelry in the office, my heart skipped a beat. The designs are edgy and cool but don't lack on the luxury.

    My favorite collection from Akillis is without a doubt the Python collection. While snakes have a rich history in jewelry design, Akillis has managed to still use the inspiration and make it their own. The designs don't actually look like a snake, but rather the scales that make up the hide of a snake. Each form is repeated and either increases or decreases in size. The connections on the jewelry is also slighty flexible, so the jewelry can almost slither like a snake.

    These earrings are made of  18 karat pink gold and feature 0.30 carats of brilliant cut diamonds. The hoop earrings feature a small triangle dangling from the bottom of the hoop that gives a little bit of movement without overbearing the ear. These earrings can be worn either day or night, so they are a very practical choice that will go with almost anything.

    Stop by Ace & Dik Jewelers to see these earrings and the rest of the Python collection for yourself, or visit the Akillis Python Earrings collection directly online here.
