Opening tomorrow in London is Well Suited, a purported “selling presentation” of top-level autonomous watches combined with fitting and menswear. The previous come civility of the Phillips Watch Department, specifically Mr. James Marks, and the last come from Thom Sweeney, a London fitting firm established by Luke Sweeney and Thom Whiddett, who, as per Phillips, are both watch gatherers themselves. This isn’t the first run through Phillips has accomplished something like this, having once collaborated with our companions over at The Rake and Mr. Watchman for the previous fall’s Styled watch sell off .
The presentation itself highlights around two dozen watches from brands like Rolex, Patek Philippe, Richard Mille, F.P. Journe, Grand Seiko, Vianney Halter, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg, with the feature of the bundle being a 37mm rose gold Simplicity by Philippe Dufour. (For additional on Dufour and why that watch is so unique, make certain to look at our meeting with him from The Road To Basel .) The Thom Sweeney group has made up a determination of bespoke fitting explicitly to accompany the watches and there will likewise be tailors chipping away at site in an improvised cutting room during the show.
