Larsson & Jennings
Those of you who have read Will Colman’s recent assessment of the colourful watch should be well aware of the style points that a bright timepiece can bring to your look. Since the necessity of using a watch for function has been all but eradicated by the rise of the smartphone and tablet, a timepiece is now considered an item designed purely for style – therefore why not utilise the accessory to introduce some colour to your outfits?
Larsson & Jennings’ ‘Classic’ timepieces are an ideal option for this purpose. Coming in a range of five different strap colour combinations, the Swedish brand uses a simple but diverse colour palette to offset the minimalistic clock face. Like a lot of premium Scandinavian labels, L&J produce well made items that have a simple, clean cut aesthetic – meaning their ‘Classic’ collection is versatile enough to be dressed up or down for the occasion.
There is a certain preppy edge to the ‘Classic’ collection, largely down to the bold strap colours. Our personal favourite is the nautical style VASA watch, which sports a blue/white stripe, thereby imitating the look of a timeless Breton t-shirt. Such a watch is ideal for spring/summer as its colour scheme would be effortlessly integrated into a nautical- or Riviera-inspired outfit.
All of the straps are nylon with a leather underlay, giving them a lightweight yet robust feel. The watch itself uses a Swiss Quartz movement and is 40mm in diameter – additional product specification includes a Crystal Sapphire glass cover and 50 meters water resistance.
So, if you are searching for a classic men’s wristwatch that is both versatile and will help individualise any outfit, Larsson & Jennings are a great place to start.
