Goodness, where does the time go?
Those of us who have long since greeted a certain age remember a moment when the “smartest” phone any of us had ever laid eyes on was a phone cleverly disguised as a shoe from which Agent 86 could ring up the Chief and their fellow CONTROL cohorts.
That was before Sports Illustrated rewarded our paid subscription to a magazine (if you’re confused, think of it as a website printed piecemeal on over 100 pieces of paper once a week) by sending us a phone cleverly disguised as a shoe from which we could ring up massive long-distance bills saying dirty, sexy things to husky-voiced women for 10 minutes at 3 a.m. on a Friday night.
Shut up. The important thing was, we had onions on our belts, which was the style at the time.
Indeed, it was a golden age when telling time, playing video games, making phone calls and performing elementary arithmetic actually often required separate devices dedicated to each. Of all of them, we easily miss a fine wristwatch’s junction of fashion and function the most. Before calculated swipes and taps on a touchscreen unlocked a one-stop information dump instantly, a gentleman or lady’s timepiece kept one’s day moving in an ever-punctual rhythm while making a subtle statement of personality.
What these lush FORREST Grass Couple Watches lack in panache measuring up to our timelessly elegant, trusty Mickey Mouse pieces worn in days long past (i.e., that wedding we crashed last Saturday), they make up for in one-of-a-kind verdant appeal and attractively understated aesthetic.
Yes, you will find yourself feeling curiously country-club fancy as you glance down at the patch of immaculately manicured real turf preserved on your watch’s face beneath the soft curvature of its dial’s hardened mineral crystal glass. For as easily as we appreciate the finery of an ornate Citizen watch and its array of several precisely synched clocks within a single display, that vibrant green sets itself apart as a charming little conversation spark in a manner all its own. The body’s matte finish complements the soft, pliable comfort of the matching white or black cowhide leather band for a fit so relaxed, it’s easy to forget you have it on at all beneath a long sleeve. Beneath the face, the Japanese Miyota 1L-26 quartz movement ensures this sophisticated watch keeps exceptional time on par with its smooth form.
Whether it’s a tee time or your everyday Miller time you watch your watch for, these timepieces will always remind you that the grass is undeniably greenest wherever you are at the moment.
