The Maximalist Fashion Trend Making an Appearance in the Watch Market

Rather than the minimalist trend dominating the market with the ‘less is more’ motto, a new modern trend called maximalist is starting to become popular in the fashion industry and is seen as a reaction against minimalism with its ‘more is more’ statement. This is not only increasing in the fashion industry but also in the watch market as high fashion brands such as Dior and Gucci have both designed new watches which take on this new fashion trend. Due to the rise in the demand of the maximalist trend we decided to recommend a few watches that we stock that also follow this trend, for those in particular who don’t just wear a watch to tell the time, but as a statement of expression.
