Went to visit the TIME² watch shop on Long Acre (Covent Garden) last week.
Keira Payne-Gibbs, a fashion watch and jewellery buyer was there to talk everyone through the latest trends in watches. She’s a fashion watch buyer for 5 department stores, 3 on-line sites, one stand-alone store and now 12 third party retailer concessions around the UK. So when it comes to watches, she really knows her bezel from her indices.
She sited ceramic, white, military and rose gold as current trends.
TIME² is a watch specialist offering both fine and fashion watches through the online boutique or directly from their London-based stores. In addition to the stand alone shops like the Long Acre one, TIME² also operates concessions in Selfridges, Fenwicks and Sunglass Hut.
They are also responsible for supplying watches to ASOS and The Wonder Room at Selfridges and stock brands such as Michael Kors (which is my current favourite), D&G, Armani, Tag Heuer, Tissot and LTD Watch (one to watch).
