Perfect timing

It’s always a smart time to invest in a good watch, and whether you’re after something  fashion-forward, function-focused, or a potential family heirloon, our wide range will have something for you. And just like all fashion accessories, there are design trends - here are just a few.

Slim and understated

As long as people have been making watches, there’s been a desire to slim them down as much as possible. Recent years have seen watches get ever larger, serving as much as conversation starters as timepieces. Companies like Skagen and Mondaine have favoured a more svelte approach.

This Skagen 956XLTBB Men's Black Dial Mesh bracelet watch will slip easily under a shirt sleeve without leaving an unsightly bulge. The titanium case provides twice the strength of steel with half the weight, and the combination of mesh bracelet and carbon fibre dial provide a chic and strong look, that’s simple to read and easy to wear.

Even more compact are Mondaine’s Women’s watches. The Mondaine A672.30351.11SBB leather strap watch is a mere 6mm deep; the distinctive thick black hour batons and iconic circle tipped red second hand have won them great acclaim for discreet and reliable watches.

Rose Gold

Far from being a flash in the fashion pan, rose gold watches continue to be a popular choice. The subtle, unmistakable tone of rose gold makes it a winner all year round. In warm weather it seems to glow in the sunlight; in colder weather, it brings some welcome cosier tones. 

This Marc by Marc Jacobs MBM3127 Women's Blade Rosegold bracelet watch features a simple mystery dial design, making a feature of the beautiful rose gold plating. For those who need a bit more funcionality, the Marc by Marc Jacobs MBM3102 Blade Women's chronograph bracelet watch version has the same luscious colouring, with Arabic numerals, triple dial stopwatch and date window.

Classic and timeless

“Timeless” style might seem a tricky notion in a market as fast moving as watch design. These aren’t the watches the fashionistas are sporting, and that’s part of the charm, because they’ll never go out of style either. A high quality, classic style watch can therefore make a great long term investment piece, and can be passed down the family if properly cared for. 

This Rotary LB00739/41 Women's Rectangular Dial watch has lots of the hallmarks of classic, feminine watch design. The small rectangular dial with simple baton hour markers, white mother of pearl dial and gold plated bracelet strap add up to a watch with a confident, assured sense of elegance. 

Raymond Weil’s stunning 2839-STC-00659 Maestro Men's Automatic Black Leather Strap watch is a prime example of watch that will look as elegant in twenty years as it does now, with a high quality automatic movement sporting a date sub-dial and moon-phase window.

All out bling

There are times in life when you just need to make an impact. Whether for big parties or celebrating an important life occasion, these are watches that are destined to turn heads. This Ebel EBCQBTWT0031 Women's Classic Mother of Pearl Diamond Set bracelet watch  is set with 42 glittering diamonds and a lustrous mother-of-pearl face. 

Alternatively, the 18ct gold bezel and hands, full chronograph functions and high grade automatic movement set this Pequignet 4351438 Men's Moorea Vintage Chronograph steel gold bracelet watch above the crowd. The dial has an elegant guilloche finish, and the attention to detail extends to the crowns of the winders, finished in polished cabochon blue stones.
