If Olivia Burton was a real woman - and who knows she possibly is? - she would be a red-lipstick pouting, full fifties skirt wearing, 12 inch vinyl playing, original silk scarf collecting dedicated follower of vintage fashion. And if this same woman, Ms Olivia Burton was the designer and creator of female watches, well the fruits of her vintage inspired labours would look just like this. All sleek numberless watch faces, metallic and pastel colour combinations and timelessly classic feminine design.
There are in fact two glamorous women behind the name Olivia Burton – Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings – who after studying at the prestigious London College of Fashion and launching successful careers in fashion buying found themselves in the right position to launch the watch collection they had always thought was missing on the High Street; affordable, stylish, feminine (but not pink or glittery) vintage inspired wrist watches. Oh and they earn extra cool points for featuring a classic red telephone box in their "About us" photo.
With soft gold watch cases a common feature throughout the different designs, Olivia Burton watches aim to compliment outfits not dominate or distract from them. The vintage influence is clear with unusual but beautiful woodland and animal illustrations recalling an almost Victoriana twist and the thin watch straps and subtle gold frames echo back to a time when watches were akin to your most treasured jewellery.
Twisted Time are very proud to announce that we have a number of the most beautiful watches by Olivia Burton in stock now. Shop the entire collection here.
