Stylin’ It With That Watch – no.1


Jeez, it has been rather a while since we last blogged – slapped wrists to us! – but it’s only because we’ve been having such a splendid time over the summer. Now it’s back to work, back to warm clothing (well, except for this weird Indian Summer thing) and back to the blog. One of our many lovely diversions over the summertime was a visit from our mate Anna. She’s an old uni friend who’s fled the country to go and live in Chicago, but lucky for us she came back to visit for nearly a month.

Anna: So stylish

One of the things Anna said she most misses when in the US – along with Marmite, Earl Grey and a sense of irony – is the fashion here in London. Apparently there’s only so much Abercrombie and Fitch a girl can wear. Anna is indeed a rather stylish lady – so we were delighted when she added to her tour of London’s coolest boutiques and fashion spots with a little trip to the (unofficial) Watch Me Go shop in N1.

Ever the collector of fine old things and timeless classics, Anna’s eye was drawn to our vintage watches, and she ended up choosing an unusual square men’s watch and a gold pendant. The watch is from the late 50s and was made by Roamer – a company that was founded is Switzerland and then set up a major office in New York in the 40s – and the pendant was made in the late 60s by Sekonda – a brand that had its heyday in Soviet Russia and which had grown out of the Peterhof Lapidary Factory, established in 1721 by Peter the Great.

All suitably international to go with Anna’s jet-set lifestyle! Here she is Stylin’ It with her new watches…

Apparently, at a party she went to in London someone asked her if the pendant watch was by Marc Jacobs. “No, darling,” she said, “it’s from a watch website called Watch Me Go.”  Ever fashionable, and ever loyal to her friends’ business. Thank you, Anna!

Anyway, we’ve just been to a watch fair and got a lovely lot of vintage stock, so do have a look on the  site. We’ll be posting more examples of people Stylin’ It with their trendy timepieces, promise….

If you want to be featured in one of our blog posts, do send in some pictures of your stylish watch wearing!
