The must-have accessory for women this season is not what you might think. Forgoing the traditional bag of the moment, of statement jewellery, women are flocking to get their hands on a standout timepiece to complete their looks. Enter, Melbourne Watch Company and their latest creation. Created in response to the increasing market demand for a quality womens timepiece, and endless requests from loyal fans, Melbourne Watch Company has just unveiled the brand’s first watch designed for a female audience, the ‘Parkville’.
The fourth addition to Melbourne Watch Company’s impressive suite of timepieces, the ‘Parkville’ is a mid-sized automatic watch, featuring a 36mm stainless steel case; a slighter, smaller face ideal for petite wrists.
The beautifully designed watch features a traditional three-hand configuration, roman numerals, and elegantly showcases a unique ‘Rosetta Spiral’ guilloche dial centre. Available in exquisite rose gold or classic stainless steel, and with a choice of chocolate or a navy leather strap, the ‘Parkville’ can be dressed up or down making it the perfect sophisticated accessory.
Melbourne Watch Company founder Sujain Krishnan says he is pleased to be able to offer a timepiece for women to wear, and hopes the ‘Parkville’ style paves the way for a whole series of feminine watches. “We wanted to introduce a quality, mechanical timepiece for women that’s more than just a flash-in-the-pan fashion accessory. The ‘Parkville’ is stylish but it’s first and foremost a fine watch, designed and built with impeccable attention to detail,” he said.
Following in the footsteps of Melbourne Watch Company’s earlier signature pieces, the ‘Parkville’ takes its name from the inner-city Melbourne suburb – a hub of activity with the charm of suburbia and home to the prestigious University of Melbourne.
Currently available for pre-order online and with delivery scheduled for November, the ‘Parkville’ is guaranteed to be at the top of many Christmas wish lists. The pre-release prices start from $379, offering the first in, best dressed who purchase prior to launch a significant saving. The ‘Parkville’ will retail from $479 once the pre-release phase concludes.
