August in general is a quiet month in the watch industry though here at our London HQs, our daily pace has far from slowed down! We are getting ready with new launches coming soon and events we will keep you posted on in due time, so I should say no more…!
Industry aside, August is one of the most beautiful months in London. Most Londoners take their holidays now, so life in the busy streets of Notting Hill suddenly feels more calm and relaxed. Those who have stayed in London really take their time to enjoy themselves. Even on those little everyday things like walking to the office or visiting the famous Portobello market on the Saturday suddenly feel different. Quite a world apart from the hectic London life we are used to!
Local café, restaurants and pubs open their outdoor spaces which are filled with locals or not in the evenings. People organise barbecues on their terraces and parties at the many private parks around the area no matter what day of the week it is! This is a real celebration of life and summer that puts a colourful note to our everyday lives.
So if you happen to pass by one of our favourite spots here in Notting Hill ‘The Westbourne’, you might just find us there having a drink after a day’s work and enjoying what has been a fantastic summer in London!
