WatchPro recently announced its Watches of the Year 2012 – the 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Now we are showcasing a watch a day that made the cut in 2012, continuing with our highly commended timepieces from the Fashion Watch of the Year category. After a stellar year, Burberry watches are a booming fashion brand, this year making the WOTY cut with this black ceramic model.
Highly Commended Fashion Watch of the Year – Burberry Black Ceramic BU1771
Burberry watch sales in the UK have soared in the past year, growing 27% in the last three months of 2011 – and it is no surprise when one considers the wider scope of its repertoire.
Burberry watches have attracted both established fans of the classic English brand as well as those looking for a fashionable, aspirational timepiece to sate a desire for designer goods.
This unisex black chronograph ticks several fashion-led boxes in one go: it has a black ceramic case and bracelet, is a chronograph and features the brand’s iconic checked design on its dial, making it a must-have for many watch retailers in the UK.
