The best designs are ones that perfectly combine form and function. When I take a moment to think about those items I use on a daily basis that I consider to have a beautiful and outstanding design, those are the things that also function the best and are most useful to me. When something is attractive and well-constructed – a made to measure blazer, a finely tuned automobile, a mobile phone – you want to wear it, drive it, use it. It’s always great when beauty and utility go hand in hand.
A timepiece is the perfect example of a sartorial detail that you want to be beautiful and function impeccably – you want to be arrive on time in style. The new Ferragamo F-80 watch is both of those things.
I’m pretty picky when it comes to the quality of accessories. I’d much rather have a small collection of very high quality items than an expansive one of cheaply made pieces. So the Ferragamo F-80 is a welcome addition to my timepiece arsenal.
I love the combination of sporty attitude with sophisticated details, like the guilloché dial and the decorative screws on the bezel. The rubber strap is a cool casual contrast to the otherwise classic design, which makes it suitable to wear whether I’m dressed up or dressed down. It also just feels super solid. Looks great, feels great, works great. That’s the trifecta right there!
Thanks for reading.
