Barrington Griffiths Men’s Modern Classic Watch
Barrington Griffiths Men’s Modern Classic Watch is a stylish mechanical (windup) watch, that is definitely going to get noticed if it’s on your wrist.
The movement within the watch is made from recycled Swiss watch movements, so it’s as smooth as a Swiss pocket watch. The strong colours make the watch stand out, but the stainless steel water resistant casing and domed crystal make it rigid and functional.
Barrington Griffiths is a Canadian company founded in 2010, and they manufacture the Modern Classic watches in Calgary Alberta.
