Old Father Time, time on your side, time waits for no man – time, we’re obsessed with it! These days many of us check the time on our phones which, let’s face it, are never far away. But, in terms of style, a phone will never match up to a beautiful, craftsman-made watch. They may not be cheap but if you look at it as an investment, you’ll get your money’s worth over the years in terms of both reliability and undeniable class. Check out some of our favourites (Clockwise from top).
Bubble by Corum – Leaf-style hands outlined in superluminova, mother of pearl face and truly exclusive with a limited edition of just 88 pieces.
Gilda by Eberhard – Something a little different and Gaudiesque here with 11 and 5 picked out in red rather than the usual 12 and 6.
Stardance Moonphase by Louis Moinet – An out-of-this-world experience, the moon is made from an authentic fragment of the Enstatite EH3 meteorite.
Repetto Shine by Raymond Weil – Inspired by the world of ballet, the shine “Etoile” appears attired in the spirit of tulle and has two interchangeable straps crafted in Repetto leather.
Charisma Twist by Saint Honore – A pretty watch with the added “twist” of an extra-long strap which forms a funky bracelet.
