My mobile just broke down and I was in a hurry and had a train to catch and I could not watch the time... . I realized how accustomed I got to have my watch together with my mobile. I haven't had a watch since the late 90's as mobiles came into being. Before that I always had a wrist watch. I remember the first watch I bought when I was 12 years old. A dark blue one from from SWATCH ( a must-have for the fashionable teenager in the early 90's) when I grew older I preferred the once that had a more vintage look to them- a rectangular dial and some fake-crocodile leather straps.  And then mobiles came and my watch broke and I got used to have my wrists free for anything else then watches.

This is the style I would love to wear if I had the right pocket money-  vintage 1930 Art Deco  watch 

Becoming sentimental yet also curious I was looking around- being of course more interested in a modern time piece than a mobile I found a great website: The Watch Warehouse. Founded 1939 with a great shop on Edgeware Road, London. They have an amazing variety of watches from luxury brands like Raymond Weil to TechnoMarine,  fashion brands from Givenchy to Versace and many more. They cater for every taste: sporty, fashionable, classic and luxury.
