Olivia Burton Watches
Olivia Burton was founded in 2012 by former fashion buyers and best friends Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings with a focus on fashion-led and affordable watches.
The pair met at the famous London College of Fashion and after successful careers in fashion, decided to take advantage of the gap in the market for affordable stylish watches which were feminine without being pink or glittery.
Their watches are designed with a focus on personality, femininity and timeless charm and made with a particular attention to detail.
Olivia Burton watches take a perfect blend of the latest fashion trends and vintage inspirations to create their own unique style.
The Olivia Burton name comes from Lesa’s great aunt who was also a source of inspiration for the watches themselves and closely supported the pair when they were setting out on their journey.
They launched their first collection with a bang, at the world-famous Harvey Nichols, with many styles selling out.
The label is constantly churning out new designs and ideas, releasing new styles every two months to keep that one step ahead of the curve and to make sure their range remains fresh and interesting.
All of Olivia Burton’s watches are made with real luxurious leather and they all have their own unique look and feel, with an option for everyone.
They also feature sleek numberless faces as well as combinations of metallic and pastel colours.
The majority of their pieces are cased in soft gold and aim to complement outfits rather than take the focus away from them.
Inspired heavily by the English countryside, woodland and floral illustrations are popular features of Olivia Burton watches, giving them a distinctly British identity.
The use of animal illustrations also harkens back to almost Victorian styles, a time when watches and jewellery were amongst people’s most prized possessions.
These whimsical and elegant designs strike a nostalgic chord, but also manage to retain modern and stylish sensibilities.
Popular ranges include the Big Dial, Painterly Prints and Wonderland collections.
