The Dressed watch is a 35mm stainless steel case with an integrated mesh strap. Much like time itself can be shared or private, this watch has two sides; it’s simple, outward face is shared with the world, yet conceals a secret underside of decorative beauty, known only to the wearer. Within all, the watch is more than just a mechanism to track time, it is the final touch in being dressed for the occasion.
