Pati­na­tion inspiratio­n

EDP Norfolk - - Fashion News -

Flint Watches was founded by Nor­folk friends Ed­ward Twed­dle and Harry Coulthard and their new range of clas­sic hand crafted time pieces com­bin­ing artis­tic de­sign with func­tion­al­ity would look fab­u­lous on any wrist.

The Patina col­lec­tion is in­spired by the aged wa­ter­ways of East London, with the pati­na­tion process - where the colour forms nat­u­rally on copper after ex­po­sure to ox­i­da­tion - a key part of the de­sign. Ed­ward and Harry have worked with artist Abi­gail Burt, a renowned spe­cial­ist in pati­na­tion, to cre­ate three vivid pati­nated de­signs on the copper – blue, green and turquoise - which are care­fully sealed to halt the ox­i­da­tion process and pro­tect the colour. The be­spoke watches are uni­sex and come with leather straps.

Watches from £180. flint­watches.com; Stocked in Birdie Fortes­cue, 16-18 North Street, Burn­ham Mar­ket, PE31 8HG.
