In a much-anticipated move, renowned design house Tom Ford has (finally) released their first wristwatch, named 001, after saying they would be entering the worth of timepieces in January 2017.
In collaboration with Michigan design powerhouse Bedrock Manufacturing (aka Shinola), the luxury brand’s first release in the horology category is an elegant, simple rectangle, with a slim case, and a focus on interchangeable slip-through bands.
It isn’t exactly clear at this stage whether it houses a quartz or an automatic movement (it is pretty thin, which would suggest it might be quartz), and given Shinola’s movements have been, up until this point, provided by Ronda, it can be assumed that so will these.
Prices at this stage look to be between approx. A $2,140 and A $13,120, depending on your configuration of case material and strap etc.
Initially unavailable online, the 001 is currently available at Tom Ford boutiques in New York, Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Milan, London, Zurich, Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Osaka, Tokyo, Nagoya, Kobe and Seoul (though apparently they will be up for sale on their web store “soon”).
