Moschino’s Rolex Band
Any introduction to wristwatches is incomplete without mentioning the Rolex. The century old watch brand has near cult icon status (or is a status icon as most would argue) with it’s signature look which, despite its inaccessibility, is as familiar down the street as it is at a posh reception.
Replicas populate street corners, and one is more likely to wear one of them than the genuine article. But rather than just wear a copy and play pretend, you could always choose to pay tribute instead by getting one of these:
The Moschino Rolex Band, for example, celebrates the excess of bling by making a wristband of Rolex cases while the Internal Rolex does the opposite by encasing a Rolex replica in leather, thus making it non-functional as a timepiece. The hidden watch is meant to transcend typical associations of wealth by silencing the “bling” and isolating the emerging form.
