Owl Watches: A piece of history on your wrist

OWL Watches are all about classic designs with all the powers of wistful style that comes with wearing a piece of history on your wrist. Read on to find out how to win an OWL Warwick mens’ watch of your own.

Despite our addiction to smartphones and the launch of the Apple watch we’re not concerned about the fate of classic wrist watches.

 

 

Watches have been around for more than 500 years, surviving wars and technological revolutions. You might replace your iPhone every couple of years, but a favourite watch has a greater power of history and nostalgia. Watches are a symbol of something more personal. Individual style. Never obsolete.

Which is why it’s fantastic to see young UK watch brands emerging on to the market. Take OWL watches for example. Based in Richmond in North Yorkshire, the brand began designing heritage inspired ladies watches, taking their cues from beautiful old towns, worn church pews worn and rambling stately homes; sumptuous fabrics and old leather bound books.

Launching their first men’s watch collection last year, OWL’s watches for men are classically designed with a modern twist. Our favourite is the Warwick range with its large, stainless steel case housing a beautifully laid out face (there are black or white options) with polished indices, classic domed lens and date indicator.

Straps on the Warwick are premium leather with a choice of contemporary matt, oily leather or more traditional brogue styles. Each OWL Warwick is supplied in its own leather and antique silver effect travel case inspired by Victorian luggage, a 2 year guarantee, and is water resistant to 5 ATM.
