collection of vintage watch faces

You’ll find old watch faces & movements at almost every second hand market you visit – often in a box of mixed bits & pieces. They usually cost just a few pence and a large collection is easily accumulated.

There are all kinds of ways to display them. We think they look great sitting in a bowl or glass – or perhaps arranged in an old printers tray.

Gimme Five! Watches

selection of wristwatches

Multi-tasking mobile phones have banished the need for watches, diaries, address books, cameras or Walkmans (remember them?!). I still enjoy wearing a watch on my wrist though – it’s a fashion accessory; like a ring, bracelet or pair of shoes. I like them in different colours, fun or business-like, ultra-modern or classic, cheap or luxurious – there’s a watch to suit all situations!

Wednesday Wish: Nooka watch

Nooka watch - Unisex Zot V Series, Black Leather ZOTBK
Nooka Unisex Zot V Series black leather watch: £215.00 – Amazon

OK, so I’ve already done a Wednesday Wish post about a timepiece – but this Nooka watch is SO unusual! Instead of the regular hands or LCD numbers, this one’s face displays an illuminated dot matrix for the hours and a horizontal bar for the minutes.

If you wore this on your wrist, it may take you a little bit longer to respond when someone asks, “Have you got the time?”
