JBW quickly made a name for itself with its ‘over the top’ luxury watch designs. What it doesn’t have in pedigree (the company’s only been making watches since 2006), it definitely makes up in boldness. Shy, meek, and understated are definitely not words you’ll hear associated with JBW. With a JBW strapped to your wrist, you better get ready for attention because you’ll get gobs of it. That’s the distinct charm of JBW’s designs-bold, larger than life, and yes, heroic. JBW watches are definitely for the shy or people seeking to avoid attention. If you want to stand out and let your personality shine out, the JBW Men’s JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Black Ion Diamond Watch is definitely for you.
JB-6213-B Overview & My Thoughts
If there is any one image that comes to mind when looking at the JBW Men’s JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Black Ion Diamond Watch, it one of a fast-paced globe trotting lifestyle complete with fashion show runways, Paris luxury shops, luxury ski resorts, and other accoutrements of the very best life has to offer. How can we not avoid this conclusion? After all, the JBW Men’s JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Black Ion Diamond Watch has a total of 234 diamonds on its face design. Real diamonds. If that’s not enough, this time piece also has mother of pearl dials. Interestingly enough, despite its over-the-top design and obvious focus on luxury, this model is quite affordable, as far as other watches in its class are concerned. That’s right, you can pick up this unit for a fraction of similar diamond-studded designs. This watch is definitely one of the more accessible models in its class.
“Jet Setter” Watch Style: Luxury
While the huge array of diamonds on this time piece solidly establishes it as a luxury watch, its multiple dials does tend to lessen the effect it is trying to create. Instead of directly communicating its luxury appeal, the message is somewhat blunted by the busy dials it has. This watch has five dials. Encased in an all stainless steel black ion unit, this watch is formidable and impressive. Still, the design can use a little tweaking. It is still a bit too loud to full work on an aesthetic level.
Movement Type: Swiss Quartz
Considering the fact that JBW stuffed 234 diamonds into this unit, you’d think that it would go the whole nine yards and use an automatic setting for this model. Sadly, you’d be mistaken. This unit uses a quartz movement. A Swiss quartz movement, true. But still a quartz movement nonetheless. Since most elegant luxury watches use an automatic movement, the quartz movement is a bit of a letdown. Still, if you factor in the fact that this watch is priced to be accessible for people looking for a bit of ‘over the top’ luxury jewelry, the choice of Swiss quartz movement makes a lot of sense.
JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Special Features: Water resistant
As an added touch, the JBW Men’s JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Black Ion is water resistant. This is definitely a great added feature because the last thing you want to worry about is having moisture seep into your watch as you wash your hands in the bathroom sink.
Depending on your personality and the event you’ll be attending, the JBW Men’s JB-6213-B “Jet Setter” Black Ion might make for a great choice. It will definitely get you noticed.
