Discount shopping destination Gilt.com has teamed up with designer Michael Bastian to offer its members two exclusive luxury watches. Inspired by the dashboards and trim details of luxury cars, the timepiece acts as a personal dashboard of your digital life. Powered by cutting-edge smartwatch technology, the watch syncs with an HP-designed app for both iOS and Android that allows users to interact seamlessly with the watch interface.
Some of the cool functions of the watch include the ability to check weather, stocks and sports updates; remotely control your music on your connected device; check calendar and appointment reminders; receive email and social media notifications; and read text messages. The watch is also water resistant and offers power reserve up to seven days.
Known best for his namesake label, Michael Bastian has also held positions within Sotheby’s, Tiffany & Co., Polo Ralph Lauren and Bergdorf Goodman throughout his career. He won the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2011, and in recent years has branched out to bring his designs to the masses through his collaborative collection with Uniqlo, and now this one with Gilt.
The MB Chronowing will be available to Gilt members on its website starting Friday, Nov. 7 at a price of $349. There is also a limited edition of the watch available that presents a sleek all-black look and alligator strap for the price of $649.
