Barbour watches: heritage timekeeping with modern precision.

August 28, 2014
Posted by David

Barbour watches are both precision timekeeping and timeless heritage all in one; the fabulous quality of the Barbour watches is reflected in the high style of the brand and the sweeping contours of the products themselves. The Barbour brand does all its own talking, and it is obvious to see that this incredibly versatile maison still has a lot to say.

Taking a suave, sideways look at conventional timekeeping options, the Barbour watch range has one eye on history and another firmly in the future. Utilising a range of straps, bracelets and dial options throughout their new collection, the Barbour collection began in 1894 by John Barbour. He began by producing oilskin coats and waterproof materials in his South Shields factory, where the Barbour range is still produced to this day.

Barbor Hayle Tweed

British designs and a unique Swiss movement makes the Barbour watch range a hot topic in the timepiece world, with an array of tartan, tweed and rose-gold/gold-plated dials available. Heralding back to their biker roots, too, the dials are almost chromed in their effect and have a sheen unlike many other watch faces. The Barbour watches truly are a vision of the future, while holding many integral values true. Check out the Hayle style, which incorporates a stunning tweed strap with a clean, industrial dial, as well as the Boswell style which focuses on the marvellous combination of steel and leather for a truly rugged look.

Take a look at our incredible collection here at Shade Station, for an up-to-date idea of what to expect from a true mastermind of fashion. More collections are on the way, so please keep checking for the best styles.
