Vivianna Georg Jensen watch

Vivianna We love beautiful design here at Retro to Go, and is doesn't get more classically elegant than this watch, by Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube for Georg Jensen.

The Swedish jewellery designer produced an extensive range for Georg Jensen during the 60s, but this is one of her outstanding pieces, and still looks as fresh today as it did when it was designed in 1962 for an exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre.

The bangle style wrist watch known as the Vivianna in tribute to the designer, reflected the sculptural confidence of the period, and the clean pure lines favoured by Scandinavian designers. It has a mirror face, which is free from numbers. The idea behind it was that a watch "should not make us prisoners of time - but liberate us"

The watch is still produced today, and is available in a range of sizes and materials. The classic is the stainless steel version, but you can now get a blinged up version in gold complete with diamonds.

You can see the full range, and find out where you nearest stockist is on the Georg Jensen website. The bad news is that, as with any classic watch it isn't cheap, at around £1,200, the good news is that you will have something that looks great and will last a lifetime.
