Watch Day

On June 19th, National Watch Day recognizes an industry which has been around for more than 500 years and is steadily evolving. Choosing a watch is very personal as the choices are vast and numerous. Even with the advent of smartphones and smartwatches, the classic wrist watch is a sign of individual taste, culture, and a rich history that cannot be disputed.

Rich in history and nostalgia, watches were not only crafted for telling time but have always been a symbol of something personal, a statement of who we are. Timepieces are often passed down from generation to generation, often gifted as a rite of passage, and essentially become heirlooms.

The iconic watch brands have paved the way for new trends like ‘vintage inspired’, ‘slimmer profiles’, and affordable luxury. Re-inventing a brand’s signature look often balances traditional aesthetics with modern details. By creating and recreating new concepts, watches became a fashion accessory much like scarves and bags.
