BIRLINE WATCHES: THE NEW CLASSIC

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A WATCH? IS IT THE MOVEMENT? THE DESIGN OF THE FACE? THE BRAND? OR IS IT THE THING THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE WEARING ON YOUR WRIST. FOR MANY WATCH TITLES, THIS WOULD BE TRUE.
BUT THE TWO MEN BEHIND ONE OF THE NEWEST NAMES IN WATCH DESIGN, BIRLINE WATCHES, ARE DIFFERENT. WITH THE AMOUNT OF ATTENTION THEY’VE BEEN GETTING OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS WE’D SAY THEY ARE ONTO SOMETHING BIG.

Even without the genuine Ronda 1062 Swiss movement, the design of each and every Birline Watch is impressive. Their ultra thin 6mm case and 40mm face comes in either a beautifully warm rose gold or a classic silver and it’s elegant design is only accentuated by the element that that defines these watches and makes Birline so iconic; the strap.

Harris tweed has long stood as a staple of British style, and apart from the culturally significant place it still holds, Harris tweed is an incredibly unique fabric and perfectly suited for watch straps. Its comfortable texture, breathable weave and its longevity, means that you’ll love wearing it just as much as you’ll fall in love with many colours that Birline offers and their amazing texture.

Perhaps the most exciting feature of Birline watches is the facet that it’s founders set out to embody; versatility, and while the Harris Tweed certainly goes a long way to making this a watch you can wear anywhere, anytime. It is the fact that you can easy change the colour of your strap, that makes this watch something we just love. It’s one of the great shames about watches, that many of them have such a specialised look. A look you can only wear with certain outfits or styles. However, with Birline’s surprisingly affordable replacement straps, you can tailor your new Birline watch to match any style, event or company.

We love Birline Watches and already see them as a fantastic new addition to the world of British style. Their surprisingly affordable price tag means we are sure that you’ll be seeing a lot of Birlines about the place. So if you’re in the market for a new watch that’s as elegant as it is stylish, look no further than the versatile masterpiece that are Birline Watches.

If we had to pick one, it would have to be the Rose Gold Oxshott. There’s something about the rose gold and oxblood tweed, that we just love and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

AVAILABLE FROM: BIRLINE WATCHES – £149
