Designed by Memphis Group founder (and father of 1980s postmodernism) Ettore Sottsass in 1988, this Tissot revival encapsulates the era’s effervescent aesthetic, minus the
squiggly lines and plus a tasteful hit of gold.
Along with big floppy lapels and auteur cinema, the 1970s was a prime time for gold sports watches like this one. Straight from the Timex archives, it’s ready to add a touch
of decadence to your biggest fall fits.
Original Art Deco watches from the 1920s are now close to a century old, making them both expensive and temperamental. This one offers all of the streamlined looks of the era,
and none of the hassle of wearing a 100-year old antique on your wrist.
This low-key Swiss brand is known for modern design and high-end movements at (relatively speaking) extremely reasonable prices. With its engraved dial, rose gold-plated case
and a movement certified by COSC (Switzerland’s official regulator of watch accuracy) this Highlife epitomizes what Frederique Constant does best.
As the first-ever watch to feature a scratch-proof case and a sapphire crystal, the Diastar was the future of watches in the 1960s. Scratchproof metal is a lot more common
these days, but the Diastar’s delightfully weird case is still a flex – particularly in gold-tone PVD.
One of the coolest things about this old-school pilot’s watch is how little it has changed since the early 1900s. But we suppose we can live with the addition of a case and
bracelet made out of 18k pink gold.
Like everything this family-owned Swiss brand makes, every detail of this chronograph was meticulously considered down to the millimetre. The result? Perfectly aligned screws
on the bezel, ethically-sourced rose gold, and a COSC-approved automatic movement developed, produced, and assembled by Chopard.
