It's Balenciaga Time

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2011 leather watches - I'll take all three

In case of distraction from all the lesbian punks that came down Balenciaga's runway last September, I noticed a few jewels wrapped on the model's tiny wrists. Ghesquire shows nothing to distract from the clothes (that's why you see chignons or perfectly combed pony tails in his shows), expect for the Hardy-designed shoes (piece of art is a more apt name). By jewels, I'm referring to those posh time pieces you see above. As you can see, they feature a relatively thick leather straps in shades of baby blue, carbon, black, and  lipstick red (the one below is dyed-python leatha, I see you Mrs. Beckham). Unlike most ordinary watches, the case here has a rectangular shape, and the bezel displays a half-moon cutout shape where you see Roman numeral numbers. 

Something tells me that the purpose of this watch is not necessarily to dictate time, but to be shown off in special occasions (not grocery shopping, I hope). Well, at the end of the day, if you can afford a watch of this caliber, implies you dominate, or least, able to read Roman numeral numbers (Sidenote: When I learned the lovely price tag, I think my heart stopped beating for a second, literally...I'll let you investigate the price point for yourself).
