MARC JACOBS WATCHES

Students of watchmaking history would identify the name Marc Jacobs as being purely a fashion watch buttressed by the work of a popular modern fashion designer rather than being the result of a time-tested tradition of watchmaking as is the case with several popular watch brands even those of Japanese origin. However as a fashion item, the Marc Jacobs watch still makes a good statement to the millions who admire the name the fashion designer has made for himself in the world of couture.

Marc Jacobs is an American fashion designer whose work took him across from North America into working for one of the most restrictive and valued fashion houses in the world today: Louis Vuitton, a company he serves as creative director of. Marc Jacobs also heads his own fashion outfit which bears his name and makes everything from regular clothes to fashion accessories.

The Marc Jacobs brand enjoys a strong following from pop culture faithful as its chief ambassador, Marc Jacobs himself has designed for several popular figures such as rap artist Kanye West and other icons of such culture like Richard Price, endearing him to an added population of individuals who might not necessarily be the core elements of the fashion world.

Despite his recognition on the European fashion scene, when it came to the manufacture of his watches, Marc Jacobs stuck with American watchmaking firm Fossil Inc, which also makes watches of its own and does the same for brands such as Burberry, Diesel and Armani among others. One critical element that the Marc Jacobs watches for men retain is that their design is heavily influenced by the man behind the brand himself.

Several designs have emerged since the Fossil partnership began and the price ranges of the watches are kept affordable with few of the Jacob’s watches being worth more than £400. In keeping with the Jacob’s reputation as a modern fashion designer most of their men's watches are made in modern design and some from newer materials that are currently being used in watchmaking concepts. The Marc Jacobs Icon Stripe of 2012 is made from resin.

Fossil which makes the watches, regardless of its American background has production facilities in Switzerland and makes the Jacobs’ watches there, so for all intents and purposes Marc Jacobs men's watches are classified as “Swiss made”. This in turn leads to greater brand respect as the term “Swiss made” is a legal watchmaking term which exclusively identifies watches made in Switzerland and as watch purchasers generally attest to the superiority of the Swiss brand it helps the watches marketing efforts a great deal.

The youth of the brand is still a factor to consider but from all indications, the 6-year old Marc Jacobs watches UK have a following in the young fashionistas of today and everything seems to point to an even larger following in the near future considering the popularity of the designer himself and his works which have earned him the respect of many within and outside the global fashion community.
