Earlier this year WatchPro unveiled 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.
Highly commended for WatchPro Rising Star of the Year 2012 was the Vivienne Westwood Cube VV008BKBK.
If there is one brand that has been bought to WatchPro’s attention in the past 12 months, it has been Vivienne Westwood — or should we say its collection of licensed fashion timepieces that have been the must-have brand on many retailers’ buying lists.
Those selling them have described their popularity as off the scale, while the sheer array of designs and styles covers men’s, women’s and unisex models created for all ages and personalities.
The Cube timepiece, with its chunky leather strap doubling up as a form of cuff, has been a bestseller.
It has a chunky square case and gold tone dial that makes it edgy enough to be a talking point and a fantastic alternative offer to typical fashion watches with steel bracelets or plain black straps.
Playful touches, such as the heart-tipped seconds hand and the ability to swap the leather strap for a second colourway sums up this brand: an alternative choice full of commercial appeal.
