Looks like they have the El Primero chrono movement in them. I remember when Zenith's weren't sold in this country and you could get them for a song in Europe. Then LVMH came along.

Funny. Although in reality, not bad for a 16 year old, huh? Especially one earned the money to buy the watch?

Those outside of the fashion industry call anyone who is "into fashion" or "wearing crazy clothing" as being a fashionista.

Those inside of the fashion industry view the term "fashionista" as being more equated to a label whore or someone who tries (well, some might actually live it) to portray a lifestyle of luxury/glamour/taste. Think the FIT student who runs around with a monogram Gucci tote, Dior aviators and runs around to the main designer boutiques to buy a tshirt or sneakers here and there. Their myspace or AIM name will probably have the word "couture" in it.
