The New Watch Shape

For as long as we can remember it’s been all about the round watch. Brit brands like Daniel Wellington and Olivia Burton have pioneered the designer-inspired shape for less, with bloggers and the style set cementing a timepiece as an accessories must-have – when was the last time you saw an arm candy shot that didn’t feature a chunky circular style?

But there’s a new face on the scene, with minimalist Scandi brand Larsson Jennings leading the way with this vintage-inspired new design. Arguably one of the first labels to make watches cool again, their offerings for this season feature a small, square, leather-strapped piece front and centre, and they’ve already picked up some big name fans, with bloggers Lucy Williams and Andi Singer already spotted sporting theirs.

Quite a departure from the rounded trend of previous seasons, there’s something refreshingly streamline about this new shape which sits more subtly in line with stacked bracelets or a well-placed cuff. Other brands have already jumped on the bandwagon, with similar styles cropping up at Olivia Burton and Marc Jacobs. Classic, cool and a serious throw back, it’s time to switch up your watch game, stat.
