Go for Jet-Set Chic
By Bonnie Shnayerson
Introducing the Sfera Arpoador collection, created by H.Stern in collaboration with the designer Oskar Metsavaht (founder of Brazilian sportswear brand Osklen). Drawing upon the famous Arpoador Beach in Rio de Janeiro as inspiration -- one of Brazil's premier surf spots -- the Arpoador collection merges the essence of a relaxed coastal lifestyle with the buzz of a busy metropolis.
We love the mixture of black and white lines, reminiscent of Oskar's long board, and the understated elegance of the diamond accents on the dial. The two prominent symbols of Oskar's brand, Osklen, the coconut tree (symbolizing Rio de Janeiro) and the crown (representing nobility), are both engraved on the inside of each sleek Arpoador band alongside the H.Stern logo, thus perfectly embodying the fusion of city chic and stylish surfer lifestyles. The watches are water-resistant to 200 feet and are covered by H.Stern's one-year warranty.
