Live your life on Venice time
World-renowned Murano glass from Italy
Time moves a little bit slower in Venice. About 700 years slower, to be more precise. Their way of life has changed very little since the Renaissance. And it's hard to have a rush hour when there aren't any roads. The gondolas glide lazily along the canals, deftly guided through hairpin turns by men who always have a song on their lips.
Few things have changed less than legendary Murano glass. Artisans sit by blazing furnaces that have been lit for hundreds of years, practicing an art passed down through generations. But the beautiful glass creations that emerge from their fires are as new and fresh as ever. It is no wonder the famous Venetian glass has delighted visitors for centuries.
The Venezia Murano Watch flaunts a colorful glass bezel showcasing the famous millefiori, a Venetian glass-making technique that creates “a thousand flowers.” The Murano artisans fold layers of molten glass to create the vibrant flowers. Each multi-millefiore (which means a thousand flowers) bezel is handcrafted in a unique pattern— no two are alike.

Better design needed
I bought this and the pink watch. I like the watches themselves very much but the glass ring around the face of both quickly fell out. Fortunately I found both rings unbroken and I put them back in place with Gorilla Glue. And they both fell out again! Maybe I''ll try again with Super Glue.I was thinking about sending them back but my main concern was getting watches and they seem to work very well and since they were on sale for a good price I decided to keep them. I just think of the empty rings as minimalist modern design but I''ve changed my mind about getting the green one.
