The time is now
Thanks to smartphones, wearing a watch isn’t about necessity, it’s about sheer enjoyment. Case in point: Georg Jensen’s “Vivianna” bangle watch. Originally designed by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe, the elegant, minimalist piece has been in production since it was launched in 1969. Look into the mirror-like, diamondencircled face of the “Vivianna” watch (from $3345) and be reminded of the philosophy behind Bülow-Hübe’s design. “I didn’t want to be trapped by time so I made the watch open, made it shiny and took away everything that was watch-like,” said the Swedish silversmith and master jeweller. “So when you looked at the watch, you saw yourself and the second hand, which reminded you that life is now, now, now, now.” Visit georgjensen.com.
