In today’s ever changing world of fashion and trends, some classic items rarely if ever go out of style. The Burberry trench coat and cashmere scrarf easily come to mind. Since the late 1870’s Burberry has been producing men and women’s trench coats featuring beige cotton gabardine fabric exteriors lined with the brand’s signature check pattern.
The Burberry trench coat remains a popular fashion mainstay throughout the globe today and has been worn by renowned world leaders, entertainers and athletes. The brand’s iconic check-pattern cashmere scarves have also been a fashion mainstay for many decades and are more popular today than they were in the 1900’s.
Notably very little has changed in both the styles of the Burberry trench coats or scarves, outside perhaps double and single breasted buttons and protective finishes on the coats along with slightly updated patterns on the scarves and coat linings.
In the world of horology, some wristwatches hold the distinction of being time-honored classics. Prestigious watchmakers Rolex, Bulova, Movado, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Gucci, Lucien Piccard and Raymond Weil have been producing fine timepieces for decades and a number of their styles have remained time-keeping classics as well. These brands are highlighted this week in the Time Honored Classics event at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.
The Rolex Oyster Milgauss automatic men’s watch is as attractive today as it was when the first model debuted in 1956. The updated, generously sized model features the 40mm diameter Oyster case in premium grade, polished stainless steel, presented on the signature Oyster link bracelet in brushed and polished stainless steel.
The handsome black dial features luminous baton hands and hour markers. A green colored, scratch resistant sapphire crystal covers the dial. The premium Swiss-made automatic movement inside assures you of the utmost time-keeping accuracy. Additional features include official Chronometer certification from the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute).
The Maurice Lacriox Les Classiques automatic wristwatch in 18K yellow gold captures the heirloom appeal of timepieces from yesteryear and is still a popular choice today. The handsome 37mm diameter case in polished 18K yellow gold is presented on a genuine black alligator strap with a matching 18K yellow gold buckle. The handsome black dial shines with polished gold-tone sword hands and baton hour markers. A window at the 6 o’clock hour reveals the automatic date calendar.
The semi-skeleton crystal case back lets you see the intricate Swiss-made movement inside. Additional features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and water-resistance to 30 meters or 100 feet.
