Philip Stein Teslar catches Oprah's eye

November 2005


Audience members who attended the live taping of Monday's Oprah show went home with a diamond Philip Stein Teslar watch worth $1,795.

Host Oprah Winfrey gave away the watches as part of her annual “Oprah's Favorite Things” holiday show. Other 2005 items on the TV icon's list include a Burberry coat and purse, Garrett Popcorn Shop's CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn tins and Fox & Obel Market's Oatmeal Cookie Dough.

Monday's plug marked the second time Winfrey featured a watch by Philip Stein Teslar on her list of favorites. In addition to mentioning the watch on the show, the Oprah Web site directs consumers to NeimanMarcus.com to buy the timepiece. By Tuesday morning, the retailer Web site reported $100,000 in sales of the watch since the show aired, according to Philip Stein Teslar spokeswoman Shaye Strager.

The watches endorsed by Winfrey have integrated active Teslar technology. The company claims it reinforces the human body's electromagnetic field with a natural earth signal to bring calm and relaxation to the wearer.
