This season, Christopher Raeburn has teamed up with Glasgow based design studio Instrmnt on a new watch collection bringing together their shared love for quality, simplicity and attainability, which shines through. Personally, I like simple design with maximum impact which is why this collaboration fills me with Joy. Raeburn has long been an inspiring figure for myself and many others in the fashion industry and beyond, and has now introduced Instrmnt to a new audience whilst shedding light on their impeccable design skill and attention to detail which has me reaching for the plastic!
Instrmnt 01-CR is a limited edition model produced in collaboration with leading British fashion designer Christopher Ræburn. Inspired by silk escape maps utilised by the military while behind enemy lines in the 1950’s, it features a brushed silver casing and a choice of either a grey or blue British calf leather strap.
The watches are well priced at £200, and come with a wealth of reasons to own one – such as:
- Swiss Ronda 585 3H movement
- PVD coated 40mm steel casing
- Sapphire crystal glass
- 18 MM British leather strap (crafted in Germany)
- 5 ATM water resistance
- 2 year warranty
As part of their REMADE initiative, the Raeburn studio have manufactured a silk travel carry bag. Produced in London, each piece is unique, dependent on the original map acquired. A numbered key tag also accompanies the watch.
What are you waiting for? Christmas is around the corner, and I am sure you have at least one special person in your life who deserves one of these delightful watches?
Other than me, naturally.
