With the digital age came the obsolescence of the primary function of a watch—no one has to look at her wrist to tell time anymore.
Yet lest anyone presume that a decline in sales was inevitable, the fashion-watch sector has been booming for designer houses.

Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
