Signature Luxury Travel Magazine – What makes a great heirloom watch?
As the pace of life continues to speed up and the demand for convenience creates products with a short shelf-life, one is reminded to slow down and appreciate the time and effort involved in quality craftsmanship.
We are pleased to be featured in Signature Luxury Travel magazine’s latest issue (p.176) where we were asked about what makes a great heirloom timepiece. We also selected some of our current heirloom favourites featured below, which are modern day watches that can be enjoyed for generations.
