THINKING OF YOU IN GENEVA : COLOUR FIELD
-COLOURED WATCHES PASS THE OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST-
At the fancy SIHH show last week (well, a glorified aircraft hanger) in Geneva I did spy some coloured watches. Rather liked them, especially having arrived from Milan where the strongest constructed menswear and suiting was monochrome grey and black, yet quite empiric or haughty . Wonder would they go? Doing a page of watch style for The Telegraph, aren't I. Am encountering resistance to publishing one example of face colour from a brand who want to sit on it till end of year. Naming names, Piaget, er, bad luck, I took pictures with my new camera. Strange. There's this Red Reverso for starters by Jaeger LeCoultre, likey. Really likey the bit of Colour Field on the end of this post, do you?
Then there's this bloke that I met from Libya, Abubaker Sheikh, who likes a colourface watch face too. We immediately made plans for some watch fusions.
And here's a cheeky review from The Basel (not happened yet watch exhibition) of The Hermes Arceau 'Paille', which is cunningly made from compressed straw. A herringbone watch made from horse food! Whatever next?
This clip if from the Old Grey Whistle Test, ironically. Charming little track.
