A strong trend in all areas of fashion in recent years has been to take inspiration from the past. When it’s come to designing new styles in the watch world, watch makers have quickly followed suit. Vintage looks have had a big influence on the market and every self-respecting watch brand has released new models with a retro twist. For lovers of this old meets new look, the good news is that it is set to continue; this year’s Baselworld saw a significant number of classic and timeless designs combined with modern movements and case construction.

As a well-established watch brand, Michel Herbelin set up his own company in 1947 with the avowed intention of making watches of the highest quality.

An appetite for watches with large faces and thin straps has been on the rise in recent years, offering a stylish compromise between the big and bold and the small and delicate.

The result in some instances can be very striking, and provides an ideal wrist wear option for those looking for a watch that will easily let them transition between day and evening attire.

At Michel Herbelin we have taken a more subtle take on the trend, with a number of our models offering a thinner strap to allow focus to lie on the beautifully constructed dial. Our watches still keep practicality high however, with the strap remaining good quality and of the highest comfort level possible.
