Vintage Pocket Watch Review - Trendhim

It can be hard to keep up with fashion. Each day it seems as if there is something new to buy, a new trend to follow. We live in this throwaway society, where next week, that new fashion phenomena will be old news. Sure enough, however hard we may protest sometimes, there will always be another trend in line, ready to take the top spot. Thats why I think it is important to recognise your own preferences beyond just following trends. Knowing yourself, what you feel confident in and being aware that a piece ‘not being popular’, doesn’t mean you don’t look and feel amazing in it. Despite all this, there are certain aspects of fashion that are just timeless. Items that refuse to follow trends and instead have become integrated into popular culture, cementing their place- permanently. One such item is the iconic Pocket Watch, which I’d like to showcase further in this Vintage Pocket Watch Review. Why we should be integrating timeless pieces into our shapeshifting wardrobes.

Trendhim Quarts Pocket Watch

Trendhim have been kind enough to send me this product and I have to say I was ridiculously excited to be on the receiving end of this one. I have always been fascinated with Pocket Watches ever since I watched Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. There was always something so hypnotising about that White Rabbit and his constant clock watching. Now with my very own to hand, I do think it is one of those items that will be of use time and time again.

I had a lot of fun with this post. I dressed up in any 1920’s attire I could put my hands on, all in order to display the timeless nature of Pocket Watches but also their potential for modern style.

With the perfect mix of vintage practicality and modern flair, this particular product is a take on a classic timepiece. And as you can probably tell, it is really quite something!

Trendhim Engraving

I was able to get this Pocket Watch engraved. Hence why this kind of item could be a perfect gift for someone special in your life. Whether that be a partner, family or friend. The fact you can personalise an item with something you both will always remember, means that such a gift would be memorable and significant. It is also a way to personalise a vintage looking piece that could otherwise feel out of place. Especially to someone who may be more reserved about incorporating classic statements into their everyday looks. It can be so fun experimenting with style, so when style has sentiment? Well that is truly Priceless!

I got mine engraved with something I thought could be inspiring in times of panic and stress. When life feels out of our hands, it can be useful to see time as something we have power over. We hold it in our hands and we choose what we do with it.

We are all Vintage Pocket Watches, ticking to our own rhythm.

Yes- that probably is super cringe but I thought it was a nice sentiment. In fact, it has inspired a new post on the subject- so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Why Pocket Watches are a Wardrobe Essential

  1. They make any outfit look 10 times more sophisticated.
  2. They’re a stylish alternative to anyone who has an aversion to wristwatches. (I am guilty)
  3. They’re practical and make you feel very Gatsby-esque. Pulling it out your pocket and clicking it open dramatically. It never gets old.
  4. Add some flair to that worn out black suit and scuffed loafers.
  5. Reinvigorate your wardrobe with something that will never go out of fashion.

As you can see from the photos, this Pocket Watch does have an old time feel to it. I think it could be a great addition to any themed outfit. But I would also like to try and slowly incorporate this iconic accessory into my present style. Along with other classic pieces.

I would encourage you; to perhaps do the same. Jump to it and begin incorporating a piece of vintage fashion into your wardrobe. Whatever that piece may be. Unique Fashion, is great fashion.

Go ahead and breed new life into your tired wardrobe.

Theres no time to waste.
