In the past year or so, I’ve become a bit of a watch enthusiast. There’s something terrific about the dash of class a nice watch can add. The trick is finding something beautiful and stylish without breaking the bank.[UPDATE: This Touch of Modern sale has ended, but if these watches show up again, we’ll update this story and re-post it.]
We’ve seen these Lambretta watches on sale from time to time, and they look like a lot of fun. Flash sale site Touch of Modern has a huge collection of these watches on sale (the biggest collection we’ve seen), some at nearly half off.
My personal favorite is this Imola Quartz, with its leather band, black face, and silver/red accents. Currently marked down to $169.99 from $350.00, I particularly like this watch’s subtle details. It feels like a blend of racing chronometer and dive watch. Materials include stainless steel and leather.
There’s something terrific about a classic chronometer. In an age where we rely on our mobile phones for both the current time but also stopwatch duty, having something mechanical on my wrist for both purposes feels grounded.
Below is a gallery of the rest of the Lambretta watch collection. If you want one of your own, you can order yours over at Touch of Modern. Take a look:
