Opening tomorrow in London is Nicely Suited, a so-called “promoting exhibition” of top-tier unbiased watches paired with tailoring and menswear. The previous come courtesy of the Phillips Watch Division, particularly Mr. James Marks, and the latter come from Thom Sweeney, a London tailoring agency based by Luke Sweeney and Thom Whiddett, who, in keeping with Phillips, are each watch collectors themselves. This is not the primary time Phillips has completed one thing like this, having previously teamed up with our mates over at The Rake and Mr. Porter for final fall’s Styled watch public sale.
The exhibition itself options round two dozen watches from manufacturers like Rolex, Patek Philippe, Richard Mille, F.P. Journe, Grand Seiko, Vianney Halter, and extra, with the spotlight of the bunch being a 37mm rose gold Simplicity by Philippe Dufour. (For extra on Dufour and why that watch is so particular, be sure you try our interview with him from The Street To Basel.) The Thom Sweeney crew has made up a choice of bespoke tailoring particularly to accompany the watches and there can even be tailors engaged on web site in a makeshift slicing room in the course of the present.
If you happen to’re in London and have an opportunity to pop by, I do not assume you will remorse it. The choice of watches by itself is value trying out, however the extra model angle ought to make it much more enjoyable. Nicely Suited opens tomorrow morning (March 15) and is on by means of March 21 at Phillips’ London headquarters at 30 Berkeley Sq.. The hours are 10:00 AM to six:00 PM Monday to Saturday and 12:00 PM to six:00 PM on Sunday. If you happen to go to, tell us what you assume within the feedback beneath!
