Los Angeles, CA--Paris Hilton, who has an impressive collection of purses as well as watches, launched her own collection of timepieces in 2007. Like her, they are “made to sparkle," says Frank Roussou in his FHH Journal article. (Image Credit: FHH Journal.)
From the story:
I have this image of you boarding a Barbie-pink plane with a couple of chihuahuas under your arm, a watch on each wrist to keep track of time zones, and bare-chested flight attendants to take care of your three dozen Vuitton trunks. Caricature or close to the truth?
(laughs). Well to start with, I don’t travel in Barbie-pink planes with a couple of chihuahuas, and the cabin crew keep their shirts on! As for the amount of luggage I take, it depends where I’m going and how long I’ll be away. If it’s for the Cannes Film Festival, for example, I’ll probably take a dozen suitcases. I actually don’t travel with Vuitton luggage any more. Baggage handlers aren’t careful enough, either out of pure jealousy or because they don’t realise how much it’s worth. And I only wear one watch at a time. My favourites are a Rolex GMT-Master II in pink gold with diamonds and my Rolex Daytona in Everose gold. It means the world to me. I’ve always loved Rolex watches. They’re well-designed, reliable and always in style. A Rolex is always a sign of good taste.
