Tory Burch Has Perfect Timing
Nobody is slowing Tory Burch down. The designer, who released her first-ever coffee-table book earlier this year called “In Color,” recently debuted another vast expansion for the brand just last week—their very first collection of timepieces. With 2014 marking the 10th anniversary for the company, Tory believed it was the right time to introduce her talents into the watch market.
For the release of her high-end timepieces, Burch teamed up with Fossil—a brand that has lent their expertise in watch-making to many other companies. Fossil has helped create watches for brands such as Burberry, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Armani, DKNY and Michael Kors.
According to Burch’s website, the Swiss-made watches are “hand-assembled in Switzerland to ensure timekeeping precision and impeccable craftsmanship.” To guarantee the collection mirrors the high-end quality of all other Tory Burch products, the faces are made with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and then topped off with an anti-reflective coat.
For now, the collection features only seven pieces. The signature watches include the Tory, the Buddy, the Reva, the Izzie and the Sawyer—all which are named after a member of Burch’s family. The seventh watch, called the “Robinson,” pays tribute to the company’s anniversary and is only available for a limited time.
Designed with bold colors like her other clothing and handbag collections, each watch incorporates a hint of style from the person the watch represents. For example, the ‘Tory’ includes geometric shapes as well as her lucky number 8. But, she makes sure to include her infamous double ‘T’ logo on all of the watches in the collection. The prices of the Tory Burch timepieces range from $350 to $995.
The collection, which was announced by Burch earlier this summer, was highly anticipated by customers all around the world. While many people couldn’t wait another second to get their hands on one of the accessories, Burch said it best—“Timing is everything.”
