Most of us have stopped wearing watches for what they were made to do - tell the time - but we haven’t stopped wearing them. Why? Because watches are now more than just timekeepers. Trend-forward ones complement what we wear; luxury timepieces serve as status symbols; while heirlooms and vintage wristwatches are little pieces of history on your wrist.

If you are looking to add a new timepiece to your collection this year, Italian luxury label Salvatore Ferragamo has three new ones we love: a reimagined bestseller, a bold and sporty chronograph, and an all-new feminine model.

 

1. F-80

Salvatore Ferragamo’s updated F-80 has retained everything we loved about the brand’s best-selling watch - the gorgeous guilloche dial and the sporty grooved rubber strap - but gets a new dark blue wash and a fine ceramic top ring with a tachymetric scale and engraved logo.

Water resistant to 100m, it is also available in a stainless steel and an IP gold version.

 

2. Ferragamo 1898

Another updated favourite, the bold and radiant Ferragamo 1898 returns this year in a chronograph version. The brand’s iconic Gancini shape in IP gold steals the show here, and is further contrasted by the matte polished steel case and reflective blue soleil dial.

Available in either full stainless steel or IP grey, with a blue or chocolate leather strap.

 

3. Ferragamo Casual

Featuring a sunray dial and a Gancini-inspired case with stirrup lugs, the elegant Ferragamo Casual is the latest addition to Salvatore Ferragamo’s women’s collection. Its double tour calf leather straps come in four colour options: blue, black, nude and red.
