HENRY LONDON WATCHES



When I was a kid, I remember sitting on my grandma's lap, in a big chair, reading books with her. She was my sister and I's nanny during the day while my parents worked, and she did an amazing job helping us learn to read at an early age. I can picture it all so clearly - how the light came through the window, my grandmother's hands turning the pages for me. I can't remember her really wearing nail polish or much jewelry, but she did always always wear a watch. A little gold one in a square shape.







It's funny which details stand out, over 20 years later, that I can still call back to my mind. I admit that I had almost forgotten about that little gold watch up until last month - when I visited Henry London Watches and saw this gold square watch on their site. It immediately jogged something in my memory, something distant - a memory of me, of sitting in my grandma's lap, reading books with her.

I love that watches have had a comeback in the last few years, and if you'll pardon the pun, they're a style choice that really stands the test of time. Sure, we have iPhones and computers to tell us what time it is, but to peer down at a small gold wrist watch instead just feels like the chic-er option. Henry London makes a number of watches that I love including an emerald version of the watch I'm wearing, a dainty all pink number, and this black / rose gold number that would be so perfect for a going out look.



As a special thank you to those of you who follow me, I'm going to be giving away a watch of your choice courtesy of Henry London Watches. To enter, head to their website, pick your favorite one, and leave a comment letting me know your fav and why you like it! One winner will be chosen and announced on Instagram, so make sure to include your IG handle so I can get in touch with you.

  3. It would have to be the heritage square in rose gold, such a classic design and really similar to something my nan used to have just with a bit more of my style in there. I think it is true what you said, watched really donatand the test of time and have memories attached to them. I always remember my mum treasuring her watches, i remember them on the side with her ring while she was cooking or cleaning something. Me and my sister would always sneak the opportunity to try them one.

  4. I love the heritage square in gold (the one you are wearing, I think)! So classic and chic; it will be so easy to dress up or down! P.S. I love your top! @be.brittany

  5. Silver and black is my constant. I love icy, classy pieces so my favorite is the Edgware in silver with a white dial and a black band. I’ll be graduating from uni this spring so adult lady accessories have been frequenting my search engine while trying to maintain my college budget and three jobs. Time is of the essence these days!! And I hope more than anything time is in my favor these next few months <3 @mckensypowell

  6. My faves are the Heritage Square (seriously, it’s so classic!) and the Westminster, both in gold. @savannahpei

  7. I love reading your blog! Your little family is beautiful, especially mops! It’s cool you’ve partnered with a watch company! I checked out their women’s collection and they have such versatile options for the everyday watch wearer. I loved the HL25-M-002. Nothing more dainty than a rose gold number and I’ve never found a watch that works well with my style, I think this one could really make me feel like a lady and a rockstar at the same time haha. My handle is @rainamullen. Keep doing what you love, Courtney! Xoxo

  8. It's so cool that you're doing this! I found that I really like the looks of their Richmond style watch. It's thin and dainty with a refined feel. It makes the wrist look slim and can compliment a lot of differently styled outfits. Good luck in all that you do! @leawn

  9. Thank you for sharing this about your grandmother. My grandmother used to wear these beautiful hair broaches, I own two that used to belong to her which I cherish. Anytime I walk into a vintage or charity shop, I look for any that may remind me of her. I took a look at the watches and they are very elegant, I really like the Edgware in silver with the stainless steel bracelet. Thank you so much for doing this, my instagram handle is @keyshaj28. Also, I love those jeans, it can be so difficult to find highwaisted jeans in a medium wash!

  10. I need a watch desperately. I've never invested in a watch since I've always relied on my phone to tell me the time. I want to get in the groove of not using my phone all the time during the day and so far I'm rocking a Fitbit as practice haha. Love these styles, they are elegant and slim (: @_liz_

  11. I love the Henry London with the black leather band! I've always wanted one of those timeless leather watches. I find that they're so chic and they go with everything! I'm looking to check the time more so on my wrist than on my smartphone and I feel such a piece can also elevate my style like you ;) Thank you so much for the giveaways and the content you produce!

  12. These watches are so sweet! Definitely a practical accessory. I’d go with the green and square watch. It’s amazing. @zazuale

  13. I really love the Westminster with the Classic brown leather strap! It’s a little “borrowed from the boys” which is very much my style. The tan and gold are simple and classy. I’ve always really admired my mom’s watch collection, but don’t have any watches of my own! I have pretty small wrists too, so the idea of not having to remove links for fit really drew me to this one! Love your posts and that you’re doing more of these giveaways <3 my instagram is @taylormikiska

  16. I haven’t worn a watch (ever?) because they always feel so masculine to me, but that Heritage square watch is dreamy! The mesh bands are giving me all the feels for my mum and grandmother’s great vintage style.

  17. I have never seen a watch with the moon phase on the face! Hat is so neat and I love the moon phase watch in gold. I've always loved the look of a classic round watch but have the hardest time finding one for my tiny tiny wrists. An accessory always makes it look like you're wearing an ~ Outfit ~ instead of just an outfit and a watch is such a perfect touch. Would love to see these beautiful watches in person! IG: mepsters

  22. Absolutely in love with the Heritage Square in rose gold! My grandmother and great-grandmothers, like yours had one very similar. I have been looking for a very specific square sized watch for a while and thanks to your post I think I might have found it! I’m amazed by these watches and this company. They are a perfect every day use for a college student and part time teacher like me! @claire_elizabeth_lyons

  27. The classic Heritage square in gold looks just like the watch my dad gifted my mother in the seventies when they were both fresh out of high school! It was after he got his first “real” job! So cool! Thanks for sharing this, Courtney... I gotta show my mom! 😍😍😍

  34. Swooning over the Heritage Square in the deep emerald green! I was lucky enough to study in London a few years ago for my Shakespeare training. Well there I bought the most beautiful Zara fall coat in the same color as that watch. That color reminds me of London and the smell of England when you’re out of the city and surrounding by trees! It’s also the perfect March color for this St. Patty’s Day baby! #obsessed @reaganmdrake

  35. I’m obsessed with the look of Shoreditch! The rose gold next to the nude pink dial �� But honestly all their watches are gorgeous! @RedRachNYC

  36. Ooh the shoreditch rose gold mesh bracelet one looks amazing! I used to not wear watches to work just in case I scratch one of my students face or arm or whatever but then I had a student who was obsessed with watches so I started wearing one again!

  38. As someone who is obsessed with being on time, I have worn a watch since I set eyes on a beautiful white leather Snow White watch at age 5, haha. I love the Westminster watch with white face and gold cace - it's classic, goes with everything and has just enough bling to coordinate with all my delicate gold jewellery. Also, prouda you girl, I've been watching for a while and life's looking really exciting for you. @smoochi.mane

  39. I love the shape and color of the Stratford teal watch (HL25-S-0128) because it’s fun, yet very classic looking! Green is my Mom’s favorite color so in all honesty, I would probably gift it to her because I think she would love it! My Instagram handle is @sabinamahal

  41. I am obsessed with the Finchley in pebble gray with the rose gold frame! It is so understated, and a perfect mix of feminine and simple. It fits perfectly with my neutral wardrobe, but would dress up my everyday tee shirt and distressed jeans! @Oliviahibbs

  42. The gold heritage square watch is my favorite as well, though the emerald one is gorgeous (but I wouldn't wear it often). The style of a square watch is timeless (ha!) and the gold has such a vintage feel. And thinking about it, my grandmother always wore a watch too. Very delicate and gold with a small round face. That memory of her has brought me such joy! And it's all because of you. Beautiful post, as always ✨

  44. I am starting a new job in a week and am hoping to round out my “successful-working-woman” wardrobe with a professional looking watch! The dark green and gold square watch would truly help boost my confidence as I start this new venture :) it’s my favorite color and reminds me of the watches my Mör Mör wore as a child, which would feel like I have her by my side every day.
    Thank you for the opportunity!!

  49. I personally love the one you chose! I love the chain wristband over leather.

    I actually was told semi recently by somebody that I would receive a watch that someone would gift it to me so I’m going in faith that this is the opportunity

  50. My absolute favorite is the Westminster one with the black strap. There is something about watches with a display of the moon phases, that remind you that everything is connected and allows you to look at a bigger picture. Plus, it gives them a sort of magical, mystical look. I was always attracted to them when I was a kid, maybe one day I’ll have my own one. ��

  51. I fell in love with HL26-QS-0262 the rose gold and black square one. Also HL26-QS-0258 it’s the same style but green. They truly are beautiful. I love the story you mentioned about your grandma. I Share a similar story with my dad and that’s why watches are a big thing for me. Well thanks Courtney for your post they are always so beautiful 💕 ig: @emily__julieth

  57. I love the RICHMOND HL25-M-0022 watch because it reminds me of the old casio watches and it pretty much goes with any outfit and adds a bit of thought and effort to an outfit. I think it would go great with my blazer,also the whole rose gold theme is something i'll never get tired of. And it's nice to look down at a watch you won by pure luck :-)

  64. I have to wear a watch as part of my uniform for work, it has to be pretty classic to fit the appearance standards. I love the heritage square in black. I think it’s timeless while still being eye catching! Very pretty collection, and I love that they’re not over embellished. The brand suits your style well. — Julsa140

  65. The last time I really wore watches was the ten months I spent living in Ghana, West Africa. Time was somehow different there; more relaxed than my fast-paced life in America. Time with friends and family was valued more than thinking about where you had to be next. Wearing watches was a more tangible reminder to live in the moment, as opposed to checking my phone which transported me somewhere else. My favorite watch from Henry London is the Heritage Square with the teal-blue leather strap (HL26-QS-0258). The vibrant color of the strap and face reminds me of lush jungles and looks so good next to the rose gold accents. I'd love this watch to remind me of one of my favorite places on earth and just how precious time is.

  66. I'm living for the Stratford in green. Green is my go to color and I LOVE a good oversized watch.

  67. I am absolutely smitten with the STRATFORD HL34-SM-0204 Henry London watch! With its gold chain band and the emerald green face, these elements make up for an effortless classic look. Also emerald green is my favorite color because it brings out my green eyes and makes my red hair pop! Watches are a great way to take a simple look and make it chic with the subtle piece of jewelry that can transform any outfit with its detail. The thing that I love about fashion is that someone has poured their heart into making something so beautiful, and these pieces can bring people together by their beauty. Fashion is also a reflection of what is occurring in the world around us, and with certain pieces it is as if time has been frozen where we can treasure its beauty for decades to come. And what is more timeless than a chic gold wrist watch!

  69. Oh my word, the Heritage Square is a dream! Such a classic accessory. I can't quite decide whether I love the gold or rose gold more. My parents were married with watches (in lieu of rings) and I love the idea that a bit of family history can sit on your wrist, accompanying you through each day. @kspurs

  70. oh my gosh, Courtney, what a lovely memory with your grandma that was unearthed. I love how life is like that. Sometimes people say style is just all shallow but I don't know at all about that, there are such lovely stories and memories built around things like that, the things we see and touch like fabrics or a watch. I love the men's heritage automatic! I'm loving menswear style lately. @dreamywalkhome

  71. Watches remind me of my Grandmother too. She's always worn a simple gold watch that was given to her by her mother. On the rare occasions she takes the watch off her wrist is a completely different colour to the rest of her arm from where it never sees the sun. I remember being fascinated as a child that you could see the shape of the watch, even when she wasn't wearing it. Personally, I like the Stratford (HL30-UM-0130) watch. I love the classic look of the rose gold but feel that the teal dial adds an unusual touch.

  73. I'm in love with the 25mm Shoreditch collection watch with the rose gold case and pink strap. Lately I've found myself wearing a lot of black, white, and grey so that I can accessorize with pops of color. I'm looking forward to spring weather, and pulling out some of my more colorful pieces from my closet makes me feel like it's sunny and 75 every day! I typically will tie my green Madewell bandana around my neck or carry my teal Kate Spade purse. This watch would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe because it's dainty and feminine, yet super sophisticated. Love that pop of pink -- it's definitely trending right now!

  75. Hi there! I'm Kirsty and I love your Instagram page. I love to look at it every morning
    Before I start my day, and it just cheers my up. My favourite watch would definitely
    Have to be the Richmond, because it's just so beautiful simple. The gold and white
    Colours just remind me of complete peace, and I know that if I had it I would just
    Feel absolutely amazed every time I checked the time! It sounds cheesy, but I like to
    Think it reflects me, basic but sparkly, and a little bit special. Something that shines
    In the darkest of times. I would absolutely love to be chosen, so will look forward to

  80. These are such elegant watches! I love how simple they are. The silver Heritage Square with the mesh band is my favorite. My grandmother has a gold and silver watch with a mesh band that I love, but with a round face. We are very different, but it’s always fun to draw things from her wardrobe and incorporate them into mine to remind me of her. She’s a badass woman.
