I received a very beautiful, surprise gift from Mr C yesterday. I am now the extremely proud owner of this stone-coloured ’100 Series’ watch by Uniform Wares. To say I’m chuffed to bits is an understatement.
I have really struggled to find my perfect watch. I wanted something classic yet contemporary but most of all, I wanted it to be simple. Mr C has come up trumps! He even purchased an additional leather strap in a gorgeous granite grey, should I fancy a change in the future.
Uniform Wares describe the ’100 Series’ thus: “Its uncluttered, straightforward design is inspired by the simplicity and utilitarian functionality of mid-century factory wall clocks made by British manufacturers such as Smiths Sectric and Gent of Leicester.”
This is well and truly my perfect watch – if I could have drawn a picture of how my dream watch would look, this is it. I was even blown away by the simple, stylish packaging. A lovey piece of design.
The ’100 Series’ watch has been chosen for inclusion in San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s, Architecture and Design permanent collection, don’t you know. It will also be a permanent addition to my wrist. www.uniformwares.com
