How to Measure Your Wrist

In order to select the correct band length for your wrist, you'll need to know your wrist size.

Measure your wrist with a soft tape measure around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch.

If you don't have a soft tape measure handy, you can measure it by wrapping a piece of string or ribbon around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch. Mark the length and measure it with a ruler in inches. This is your wrist size.

If your wrist size falls in between 2 lengths (ie. a 6.25" or 7.0" wrist), you have to know your preference - would you enjoy a shorter band with less tail, or a longer band with more tail?

Depending on your style, remember to consider if you like to wear your watch looser in the Summer than in the Winter.

Upgrade Your Look with a Butterfly Buckle

A Butterfly Buckle is a clasp on your band that makes your watch easier to take on and off. A butterfly buckle replaces a normal buckle on your watch band so it's always perfectly sized and easier to clasp. Set it once and it's done. It can also help your band last longer. The downside is that it’s a bit bulkier on the inside of your wrist.

Must be purchased separately - Available for our 35mm, 36mm and 38mm watches.

Seema Lilias may mean the Face of Lily but as tradition in Scotland, Lilias can also be known as witch and Seema means Listening in Gaelic. The Listening Witch. At one time, witches were feared and persecuted. Not so these days as witches are healers and seers. They answer to a higher power and sow brightness in the world. Be reminded of your power and illumination each time you check your wrist.

Merry-Lee Rae is the two time winner of the Saul Bell Design Award for Enamels and winner of the MJSA Vision Award for Enamel Distinction.

She began making jewelry as a teenager and her fascination with enamels and precious metals has been her lifelong passion. Her formal education was in mathematics and she fully intended to pursue a respectable career in Silicon Valley but as luck would have it, Merry-Lee got too busy doing what she loved and never had time to go to work. Instead, she found herself participating in the American Craft Council shows including Rhinebeck, Baltimore, West Springfield and San Francisco. She also participated in JCK Las Vegas in the Design Center.

Cloisonné enameling has been her focus since 1976. She has honed her craft with the enthusiasm of an artist and the intensity of a mathematician creating works of intricate detail fusing glass on metal. She is guilty of thoroughly enjoying her work.

"I see myself as a dedicated romantic, expressing love of life through my art. Using glass and gold, I create sunshine shouts of joy or murmurs of quiet remoteness. The resulting cloisonné jewelry is my voice. What really matters are the people who are touched by it in some way.”
