Stalwart British luxury label Burberry has a legacy dating back to 155 years and now with the launch of their first automatic watch collection they have added another milestone to their long list of achievements. Unveiled after two years of research, Christopher Bailey’s ‘The Britain’ collection is in the form of four distinct men’s timepieces, all taking a cue from the stitching and D-rings that finish off their trenches. The highlighting features include self-winding movements hand-made in Switzerland, custom designed bolts and circular Geneva Stripes engraved on the movement itself, a transparent back as well as a Burberry logo on the rotor.
