Bling in the new
The festive season may be over, but there's always an excuse to buy more bling. Local jeweller Carat and home-grown watch company Charmonde have created a new, limited-edition watch collection under the brand Chouette. Designed by Carat owner Scott Thompson and Charmonde founder Christie Woo, the collection offers five styles, with two featuring a crystal-encrusted Union Jack dial in honour of Thompson's British roots. Other styles come in blue, white and pink, with Chouette's signature encrusted bezels. Prices range from HK$5,000 to HK$8,600. Available at Carat (23 D'Aguilar St, Central, tel: 2526 9688) and Charmonde (IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2116 1517).
