The feminine styles of Olivia Burton appeal to women looking for mid-range watches with quality designs. A vintage-inspired aesthetic is carried throughout Olivia Burton’s diverse collection of watches, from the hand-drawn florals of the enchanted garden range to the signature 3D bee motifs.
Since it's launch in 2012, Olivia Burton has offered an alternative to the chunky sports-inspired watches that dominated the industry and can still be found today. And, with a choice of small to large case sizes, you can choose a delicate addition your wrist or statement-making timepiece. The brand's wide selection of casual and dress timepieces ensures there’s a style to suit every woman.
Jemma Fennings and Lesa Bennett, the designers and founders of Olivia Burton, met at the esteemed London College of Fashion. Bonding over their similar tastes, the duo scoured flea markets in search of unique timepieces. When they couldn’t find vintage watches in working order, Lesa and Jemma decided to start their own company. Their goal was to to create a brand that married the aesthetic of heirloom keepsakes with the reliability and precision of modern quartz-powered watches. They launched the company from their kitchen table and named it after Lesa’s great aunt Olivia Burton who supported their entrepreneurial dream. The Olivia Burton company now includes jewelry, scarves, accessories, and stationery.
Olivia Burton has always looked to the latest runway trends to create contemporary, fashion-forward pieces. For those who prefer a clean, graphic watch, there is the classic dial series that features a simple white face and classic Roman numerals. For a beautiful, eye-catching look, check out the sunray dial version in dazzling gold. At the other end of the spectrum are dramatic designs featuring bold, dark florals and removable cuffs.
Fennings and Bennett still design each watch in their East London studio. They work carefully with a small team of creators to ensure each watch is up to their high-quality standards. Buyers will be happy to know that Olivia Burton takes its sustainability and eco-friendly practices seriously as well.
Elegant and whimsical watches set Olivia Burton apart from other fashion watch brands. Instead of a traditional approach to timepieces, Olivia Burton creates designs inspired by nature. Intricate, hand-drawn, floral-printed watch faces sit alongside embroidered and bejeweled bees.
Olivia Burton's eclectic and feminine watch designs particularly appeal to discerning American buyers and anglophiles. The Enchanted Garden series evokes both the wild beauty of the English countryside and the manicured grounds of stately homes. Alternatively, the two-tone and mesh bracelet bands are reminiscent of crisp and elegant British tailoring, especially when paired with a mother of pearl or gray dial. The available hardware finishes include silver, gold, and on-trend soft rose gold. Best-sellers from Olivia Burton include the charming Queen Bee collection, which features a miniature 3D bee at 12 o'clock, or the graceful Glitter dial collection.
