Barbour Watch Launch & LCW 2014.

Last week Barbour launched their new watch collection. Edd and I went along to the launch, and were greeted with flutes of champagne while the lovely people of Barbour took us through the collection. I fell in love with both the purple and tartan watches (you'll find out which one I chose at the end!), and was shocked at how large the collection is.

Barbour actually dabbled in the watch industry years ago back in the eighties, however this time around they mean business. The watches each have solid Swiss Movement, and the time pieces start at just £125, rising to £300. Each watch has elements of the British brand, from tartan to quilted leather, to metal.

The signature watch is the £300 men's Beauson Leather Strap watch. A beauty if ever you saw one.

As well as material and leather straps, they also have a wide range of more traditional metal watches, and a good variety of thin and thick bracelets. Apparently quite a lot of women are actually buying the men's watches for themselves, and from looking at them, many of the watches are actually quite unisex.

So which one did I go for? The Tartan Fell Watch. I decided to go for it as it's a bit different, and I love how every tartan fell watch is slightly different from another, each one has a unique tartan design.

After the Barbour event we then headed on to Be At One just down the street in Covent Garden, for the London Cocktail Week launch of the new ABSOLUT Cherry flavour. After throwing some shapes on the dance floor with the marketing teams for Be At One and ABSOLUT, as well as far too many Cherry flavoured cocktails, we stumbled across the cobbles of Covent Garden back to the train station just in time for the last train home. All in all an excellent night getting to hear all about some awesome new products!

  1. I had no idea Barbour did watches. I think my Dad is still wearing the Shooting Jacket he bought from Barbour in the 80's!! I had a mini one when I was teeny, since then, they don't quite make the same clothes! I guess everyone has to keep up and stay trendy, but it does seem a bit of a shame that they don't have a lot of the classics they used to do!

    1. Yeh, they've only just launched them though! Haha, yeh my Dad has one too, I got one a few years ago and live in it during the winter, they're so handy for dog walking!

      Yeh, I agree, I think they're just trying to keep up with the times though. I do quite like their newer 'international' collection.
