The watch of the Oscars

Colin Firth's choice of wrist wear for the Oscars was a Chopard. By doing so, he has made the Chopard LUC XPS the watch of the Oscars. The Chopard L.U.C. XPS, as worn by Colin Firth to collect his award for his role in "The King's Speech" is the  watch of the Oscars.  I am sure Firth had a whole suitcase to chose from but this white gold watch with a simple dial is very much him and the choice of the low-key gentleman. This ultra-slim watch, first launched in 2006,  has a mechanical movement and is wound by the movement of the wrist, as are all so called 'automatic' watches. Once fully wound the watch will keep going for almost three days thanks to its twin barrels that store the energy. Firth looks very much at ease with this wrist on his watch that I do hope he is going to keep on wearing it. Once he is back from LA, I will look out for him in Chiswick, just down the road from me.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
