Posted on 02 January 2017
Here at The Pommier we know the importance of great wristwear. A good watch elevates the simplest outfit to a style statement and can add the playful, the bold or even the whimsical to your look. With this in mind we are thrilled to welcome iconic British timepiece designers, Newgate in 2017. The newest addition to our carefully curated design list is an iconic British brand with heaps of attitude. Creating classic yet current watches for both men and women, Newgate Watches are a must have brand for the new year.
British Style Icons
Founded by husband and wife team Jim and Chloe Read, Newgate has been setting style standards for decades with their iconic clocks. Famed for their oversized designs and vintage detailing they translated this eye for style into a range of easy to wear wristwatches.
Newgate Watches have a quintessentially British vibe that carries through their whole collection. From the timeless country house vibe of The Ship to the modish tones of the The Electric there is a watch and a look here for everyone.
The attention to design detail is exceptional and every aspect of each timepiece is crafted with serious care. The collection is also entirely unisex meaning these scene stealing watches are accessible to all.
Newgate Watches have been making design waves since their launch and have been widely featured in the fashion press including style bibles Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. A firm favourite amongst fashion bloggers, trend setters and celebrities Newgate Watches are rapidly becoming a style classic. Singer, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and super vlogger Estée Lalonde are big Newgate fans!
How to Wear
Don’t be afraid to make your watch the focal point of your outfit. Pairing a statement watch design with a clean look is an easy way to achieve sartorial cool. We particularly love The Club for adding real punch to any look.
For men, a great watch should take you from office to casual without missing a beat. Choose clean but bold designs that make an impact both on and off duty. The Ship in brass with a black strap is classic enough to work with a sharp suit and quirky enough to pair with a tee and jeans.
Women can add edge to an outfit by choosing a masculine design with a delicate look. Pair floaty florals with The Cube Grand, to contrast the feminine against strong geometric design. Some of the best style is born from conflict and this is an easy way to elevate an everyday outfit.
Embracing colour can be a great way to stand out from the crowd when it comes to wristwear. Newgate Watches have a selection of playful pieces that add fun to classic style. The Corgi in blazing red adds a distinctive pop of colour while Mr Good Boy puts doggie design at the heart of a unique timepiece.
