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. Today is the turn of Bering, a rising fashion brand in the UK, of which this titanium model has become a bestseller.
Highly Commended Fashion Watch of the Year – Bering 11939-229 Men’s titanium Day/Date
The rise of Bering in the UK has been hard to ignore as the brand has gone from strength to strength, joining the CMJ and Houlden buying groups and being snapped up by stockists across the Isles.
It is certainly giving the other Scandinavian watch brands a run for their money, with most models under £200. The brand was founded by adventurer and businessman Rene Kaerskov in 2008, meaning that drive and ambition is at its very heart.
Bering’s bestselling men’s day/date timepiece — a standout blackened titanium watch with eye-catching red sub-dials and sleek mesh strap — was an easy choice for the Highly Commended section of this year’s WatchPro Fashion Watch of the Year.
