INTRODUCING FORGE & FOSTER WATCHES
SIMPLICITY AND STYLE THROUGH A COMBINATION OF CLASSIC SILHOUETTES AND MODERN MINIMALISM
Based out of London, Forge & Foster are making their stamp in the watch market by creating modern, stylish watches whilst also integrating an element of classic design. Their focus on high-end quality at a high-street price is portrayed through their quintessential London style and love for the city life. Easy to order with speedy delivery and free worldwide shipping (over £50), the watch arrives in a black presentation box containing a small envelope with a 24 month warranty, watch tool and a £10 gift voucher (an added bonus and something not to be missed). Once opened the watch is displayed smartly in an all-black encasement. A no fuss, simple box that fully shows off the design of the watch.
The watch is protected by an adhesive film to fully safeguard it, which is a good move because the watch feels even more fresh and untouched when you take it out. The timepiece itself has a good weight to it, isn’t super light, feels sturdy, but also isn’t too heavy that your wrist feels weighed down. Using the tool enclosed in the box, the watch strap is easy to adjust and fit to your wrist with a varying range of sizes. The watch straps are interchangeable which means you can also add a leather strap into the mix; this additional option is available online. Keeping with the mesh strap, the Forge & Foster logo is embossed onto the clasp which fits flush, smoothly and securely onto your wrist.
The 316L steel dial has a black face with rose gold hands and indexes. An added detail is the Forge & Foster logo in place of the ’12’ at the top of the dial. The black face and rose gold features are a nice change up from the typical black and gold that is so often seen on watches. The use of hardened mineral crystal glass on the watch face makes it super durable and it doesn’t scratch easily. Day to day wear of the Black Rose Gold watch is super effortless; it’s slim line doesn’t get caught on any cuffs or buttons and is somehow subtle, yet bold. The dual toned design gives it the ability to fit freely with every outfit whilst also standing out enough for you to notice its unique design. In terms of day time versus night time wear, this watch transitions readily through both. It allows you to go straight from work to drinks with no hassle at all and if you do prefer to alter the watch from office to "out-out", the straps are easy to change. This is a watch you wake up wanting to wear because you know it will suit every eventuality, making it a go-to watch.
Forge & Foster offer their consumers the ‘London Lifestyle’ whether that be male or female, they convey a prestige and desirable presence, giving the consumer the whole lifestyle package. Focusing on a London based look, they bring something that other watch brands do not necessarily target, delivering a lifestyle brand rather than just selling a watch. The watchmaker's price range is slightly lower than its competitors which establishes it a great entry level piece whilst still having the same standards, if not higher, than that of its direct opposition. If you value simplicity and style through a combination of classic silhouettes and modern minimalism, a competitive price and desirable lifestyle, this is the watch for you.
