A Brief History of D&G
D&G stands for the last names of two exceptionally talented fashion designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. These Italian natives have made an indelible impression on the world of fashion; their passionate dedication to creating sexy, eye-catching designs has served them quite well through the years. Although their collection has expanded to include men's fashion, fragrances and accessories like first-rate watches, D&G originally made its make through women's fashions. The partnership between Dolce and Gabbana remains strong, despite the fact that the two were once romantically linked. In other words, the fashion and design that has been created by these two men has transcended everything else.

A Dramatic Beginning
Many designers struggle for years, decades - or their entire lifetimes - before enjoying even a modicum of success. That wasn't the case for Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, though. Fittingly, the two men met during an atelier in Milan, Italy. Thanks to their shared love of the Baroque style, they decided to go into business together. This proved to be fortuitous, since they were featured in a "New Talents" show during the Milano Collezione in 1985. That exposure catapulted the two men to instant fame in the cutthroat world of high fashion.

By 1986 - just a short year later - Dolce and Gabbana were ready to unleash their unique fashion stylings and sensibilities onto the world. That year, they debuted their very first women's ready-to-wear collection and featured it in a show. Almost instantly, people showed intense interest and enthusiasm for D&G's style and aesthetics. Right from the start, then, it was clear that these two young fashion designers were a force to be reckoned with - and that they would have a prominent position in the world of fashion for many years to come.

D&G Flourishes
The D&G label became associated with many key things through the years. As they expanded into menswear, their ultra-suave pinstriped suits became staples. Elaborately embroidered and decorated coats and jackets were also hot sellers. Underwear-as-outerwear became a regular runway feature; D&G popularised the look of the corset as a top for women, too. Above all else, sexiness was the primary goal and achievement of every one of D&G's designs. Their fashion simply oozed sex appeal; people couldn't get enough. Much of their inspiration was drawn from Italian film, a genre that is considered to be among the sexiest in the world.

Of course, D&G couldn't rest on their laurels. In addition to breaking into men's fashion, D&G unleashed exciting fragrances and accessories on the world. D&G watches, in particular, distilled the essence of the D&G name and style into elegant, wearable timepieces. Thanks to their ever-expanding lineup, one can dress in D&G from head to toe, if one wants. Considering the fact that this impressive empire all began with the passion and skill of two unknown men, it is remarkable to think of how far D&G have come. Without question, their mark on the world of fashion will remain for many years to come.

If youre looking for a plain and simple watch this may be the one for you. Im a skinny built guy so a big watch would look silly on me so I picked this one out of many designs. The only problem I have was the packaging felt cheap.
Very good
