Contemporized Classic

Designers give traditional pocket watches an innovative modern spin

Implications - Designers are bringing back the 16th century with sleek and modern twists on the classic pocket watch. While still considered a refined, luxury item, the pocket watch is no longer associated with only an older market as more and more young consumers take on this more traditional look. Designers, however, are doing their part by infusing modern elements like social networking, gaming and other technologies into these classic pieces.
