What's the Time, Mrs Porter?

Oh to wear a watch! What does a watch symbolise when worn and adorned on a wrist? From the bedazzled and rhinestone 💎 encrusted, to the sleek boujie leather croc 🐊 straps... or the casio esque retro techno vibes 🤖 we all have a style when it comes to telling the time 🕰

The first ever wristwatch you may be surprised to learn was made for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary, by the Swiss watch manufacturer Patek Philippe in 1868. From these humble and watchful beginnings, we've jumped (literally) to some truly crazy designs... such as the Franck Muller Crazy Hours watch...

How it works?! Yes, the numbers are all jumbled up! And this watch is cleverly devised to have the hands JUMP to the correct number DOT on the hour! Marvellously crazy 🤪

Another favourite watch of mine is actually one I personally own. The timeless through the looking glass wristwatch by Louis Vuitton, which only works when worn on the body. No body movement? No dial movement. A very clever and transparent piece of petite machinery indeed... Yes, this is my watch. It is my baby. It is my most beloved possession 💛 🤩

With every season, but like fashion, times change.

Literally, in this case.
