The Emporio Armani watch is turning is back time this fall 2018. In a nostalgic nod back to the 1930s and 1940s, the Italian luxury label’s latest Swiss Made watch collection is taken straight from the wrist of Gatsby this season, blending Art Deco aesthetics with a contemporary finish.
Dubbed Modern Retrò, the men’s and women’s watch collection (so there’s a watch for Gatsby’s Daisy this season too) is an update on the house’s signature watch catalogue, with the four timepieces designed to appeal to those seeking innovation and antique styling, as well as the classic Swiss tradition of high-precision mechanics in watchmaking.
The watches come in two colourways and at first glance, a significant design feature is the Armani rectangular dial shape. Inside, the men’s rose-gold variety is made with a quartz sub-second movement and is punctuated with an applied curved stick indexes.
Paired with a polished rose gold-tone case and a black calf leather strap, it’s a refined look that breaks away from the common silver or gold colours, for a fresh change for fall.
The women’s rose gold watch has dial design that features an inner track encrusted with 12 genuine diamonds, which serve as the backdrop to the watch’s curved, time-telling hands. The slim rose gold-tone case is paired with a sassy stainless steel three-link bracelet; based on the signature Emporio Armani Swiss Made ladies’ bracelet design seen in previous seasons, so it’s a jewellery/watch piece in one.
In addition to rose-gold, the iconic collection of Classic and Classic Tonneau comes in navy. In the midnight hue, two iconic platforms, Armani’s Classic and Classic Tonneau models, introduce sleek suede straps for fall.
The rich blue stamped dials of the automatic open balance wheels are matched with blue suede straps, and are warmed, just a little, with rose gold-tone stick indexes and hands. Again, adding a refined contrast to the men’s styles.
