Breaking the Sapphire Crystal Ceiling with the Stella Watch Company

Part of what makes covering watches fun is when a new brand comes on the scene.  And the Stella Watch Company looks as if it is going to have something interesting and actually fun to offer a sometimes stuffy industry.

The Stella Watch Company has been co-founded by Marcella Dolan, a watch and jewelry industry veteran.

The above watch is the Stella Felix V1. Dress Blues.

It is also going to be available in a black dial version V2. 77 Blackout.

But if I were picking, I would lean towards the V5. Downtown Red -
