Known for his androgynous or gender-bending designs, it didn’t take long for Giorgio Armani’s label to make it to the high fashion scene. Giorgio Armani SpA, co-founded with Sergio Galeotti, has taken Hollywood by storm as the 80s rolled around. Soon the company explored other branches of fashion besides haute couture. With its famous diffusion line in 1991, Armani Exchange was born to cater to the American market. Not long after, AX watches were launched and the rest, as they say, is history. Here are 10 items worth checking out.
This modish quartz timepiece pairs well with a smart-casual ensemble. Street features a 46-millimeter diameter body, mineral crystal glass, and textured blue dial. Complementing this cool tone are the silver hands and baton markers. The Armani Exchange logo is printed on a greyish strip stretching from the nine o’clock position to the date window at three o’clock. Apart from being quite durable, Street is also water resistant up to 50 meters. Its trendy leather strap comes in an elegant shade of brown. This one is one of the most popular pieces among Armani Exchange’s offerings.
Be it a casual or formal event, Harper’s minimalist and effortless appeal has got you covered. This quartz watch has a 38-millimeter-wide stainless steel case, coated with robust PVD (physical vapor deposition) in a rose gold hue. It also features a polished white dial and three hands in the same rose gold color. The look is finished with a white leather strap and a strong mineral crystal glass cover. Harper stands out among other Armani Exchange watches for its fresh design and its ability to endure a water depth of 50 meters.

Polished in silver-tone stainless steel, the slender and slinky Lola ladies’ watch is all about modern minimalism. The watch pairs a chic mesh bracelet and shiny sunray dial. Sleek indexes mark the hours along with small sparkling gemstones that exude a glamorous vibe. Encased in anti-scratch mineral glass and powered by quartz movement, this Armani Exchange watch is expected to last a long time while remaining punctual.
With a classy, textured silver dial, the 46 millimeter Hampton quartz watch is just the right mix of unmistakable style and simple elegance. Its baton markers are in a lighter gunmetal tone, while the minute and hour hands are slightly darker to enhance readability.

Finding a watch with stylish yet delicate details can be a difficult task. However, the label’s two-toned Dress watch with a width of 36 millimeters is bound to surpass any woman’s expectation.

Slender hour, minute, and seconds hands enhance the quartz watch’s elegance.
This watch is another excellent example of Armani’s less-is-more approach. Cayde’s long linear indexes for hours and the thin hour, minute, and seconds hands in silver provide a dainty and polished look.

Sleek, youthful, and fashionably modern, Armani Exchange watches perfectly captures the soul of its parent company. While there is no shortage of watches with posh tones or suave designs under this sub-label, there is also no compromise on quality. These timepieces truly let you express your individualism like no other brand out there.
