Sneak-a-Peek: Barbour Watches
Barbour is an absolutely iconic British lifestyle brand and with the impending release of Barbour Watches, here at Shade Station we thought we would keep you in the know about this surely beautiful new watch range. Although not due for release until the second half of 2014, Barbour Watches are already causing a stir in the horological community as this is the first venture the clothing giant has made into watch production. They are going to be working closing with the UK’s largest watch and clock manufacturer Zeon Ltd for a level of unsurpassed quality fitting of the Barbour name and brand as a whole.
They are set to retail from around £70-£200 GBP and will come with all of the features you would expect of a high-end fashion watch brand; comfortable straps (presumingly made from the same wax cotton as their beautiful coats), accurate timekeeping and movements, range of features and simply stunning designs. For those of you that may not have heard of Barbour before, J Barbour & Sons Ltd was founded in 1894 and has always been based in South Shields in the North East of England. Barbour is a 5th generation, family owned business and produces knitwear, shirts, trousers, footwear, accessories and outerwear for men, women and children in over 40 countries worldwide including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the US and Japan.
