Latest Purchases #71 – Olivia Burton Watch

After keeping this watch looking pretty in its box since Christmas, I thought it was finally time to pull off the protective film (so satisfying!) and take this beauty out for a ride.

Olivia Burton is a trendy British brand that looks back to vintage designs for their watches and I am a fan of their simple, classic designs.

This brand has become famed for their oversized faces and beautiful leather straps but I opted for a watch from the ‘Modern Vintage’ range which have a slightly smaller face. This is going to sound like somewhat of a humble brag but I have tiny wrists (seemingly the one skinny part of my body!) and huge watch faces just don’t look or sit right on my arms.

Rose gold is obviously still having a moment, and I do love it, but when I was browsing this range I fell for this classic tan and gold design. It has a lovely thick leather strap and a chunky gold face with a pretty geometric pattern.

Having been used to wearing a digital watch (gotta love an old school Casio), my only tiny niggle is that there aren’t any numbers on the face but the design looks so lovely that I know numbers would ruin the aesthetic.

I love this watch and must stop myself looking online at more designs!
