Now that technology has taken over our existence, we are forgetting the simpler things. Like a really cool watch that only tells the time.
There are quite a few companies out there producing unique and-pardon the pun-timeless designs, one of the classics being Van Cleef & Arpels with their breathtaking and detailed solar system time pieces.
Now, originality will set you back a penny or two most of the time. If you’re lucky there are designs from brands like Iron Samurai who make LED watches for four quid. Even the quirky Mr Jones automatic pieces which come in an array of designs are reasonably priced at £100 and up.
The more expensive concepts come in at around £10,000 like the stunning luxury skull inspired designs by Swiss watchmaker Fiona Krüger. Or the PAC-MAN watch by Romain Jerome that retails for close to £20,000. The most exorbitant is probably anything from Van Cleef & Arpels, which are priced upwards of £333,000.
We found five amazing watches that are addictive to look at and so intricately crafted, it’s an art piece for your wrist. Decide for yourself and check them out below. Time’s a wasting!
