Shop Talk

They say a watch tells more than time. They are right. More than merely a timepiece, it is at once a fashion statement, a symbol of status, and a mirror of one's taste and personality.

A good watch can update a blah outfit and can be the difference between boring and effortlessly chic. And, as our lifestyles evolve and our horizons widen to include new trends and activities, so do our demands on our accessories.

The best watch manufacturing companies in the world know this very well. That's why, for centuries, they have been mastering their craftsmanship, pushing the boundaries of innovation and perfection continuously. Somewhere down the line, they defined style.

This week, Star Lifestyle brings you some of the most exquisite watches.

All watches are available at Time Zone, (Level 1, Bashundhara City), a concern of Kallol Group
