Jack Spade Launches First Range of Watches

American men’s accessories and clothing brand Jack Spade (previously featured in The Style Examiner) is launching its inaugural collection of watches in stores worldwide today. Comprising 37 models, the collection accompanies Jack Spade’s Spring 2013 collection and comes in five categories that incorporate retro influences from timepieces designs produced between the 1960s and 1980s: Sport, Dress, Pillow Tank, Dual Time Zone and a Graphic series that mirrors the brand’s light-hearted ethos.

The Sport, Dress and Pillow Tank categories include Swiss movements and sapphire crystal, whereas the Dual Time Zone variations feature a movement developed specifically for Jack Spade that can tell an alternative time zone with its fourth sweep hand. The Graphic watches (probably The Style Examiner’s favourite range owing to its bright colours and designs, including a model with a nice camouflage pattern) feature a Japanese quartz movement, and in typical Jack Spade humour, announce on the dial that they have “no jewels” and are “not Swiss” made.
