London calling: Henry London lands in New York

Filed by Lola Cristall/March 9, 2016/11.01

A timepiece is just as enticing as jewellery. Henry London landed at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York to stir some British flair with a range of stunning, affordable watches, from modern and colourful to sophisticated and exquisite. Each collection pays homage to iconic locations named after London subway stations: Chiswick, Edgware, Finchley, Hammersmith, Hampstead, Harrow, Highgate, Holborn, Knightsbridge, Pimlico, Richmond, Stratford and Westminster.
   Founded by a duo, one of whom came across a 1960s watch at the Portobello Road Market, Henry London quickly obtained global success as it expanded to more than 20 countries. The watches themselves echo that found item, each with a 1960s sensibility, but they still look modern today. To provide a personalized touch, the wearer can add a custom engraving to the case with a choice of typeface. The line includes high-tech, stainless steel models and different calibres to choose from, for instance, three hands, with or without a date window. Many pieces have cambered crystal with domed glass, for a stylish, complex look. Chronographs are also an option, with elongated dauphine hands and dazzling sub-dials. The watches can be had with Milanese mesh bracelets, or pliable soft leather straps of varying colours with elegant buckles.—Lola Cristall, Paris editor
