The Art of Luxury Time-telling

6 Apr

The world of luxury fashion is one that I find intensely fascinating and so breathtaking. Luxury brand manufacturers take the best materials you can find on this beautiful earth and craft incredible things out of them.

From plush fabrics to diamonds and precious gems, I mean, the earth is full of beautiful things waiting for this type of expression. What’s the point of a diamond in raw form below the earth, when it can be made into a swash buckling Chopard watch?

I think I’m kinda digressing? Lol

So, the biggest and the best watchmakers in the world gathered at the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show in Geneva, Switzerland late last month. And you can only imagine what went down, tons of sophisticated collections and innovation.

Check out some of the simply amazing selections from some of our favourite designer names. Please read the descriptions of the watches, so luxuriously poetic, lol.

Doesn’t matter if you can’t get one of ’em, it’s great to admire excellent craftsmanship and the beauty of creative genius.
