The Watches & Fashion Of Met Gala 2024

The Met Gala has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a philanthropic opportunity for New York high society back in 1948. Today, the first Monday in May is a night for celebrities and their outfits… and watches of all kinds. The dress code this year is “The Garden of Time,” inspired by a 1962 short story written by J.G. Ballard and it celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s spring exhibit, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion. high quality replica watches

I am watching on E! (RIP Fashion police) with my Slack a-team watch spotting squad. Bang on theme, we spotted some time-related looks, accessories, and, of course, watches. Head curator of the Costume Institute Andrew Bolton (aka. king of Met Gala) explains this year’s exhibit as a way of examining how technology can breathe new life into garments that are too old and fragile to be worn again. It’s all very meta. high quality replica watches
Back in 2023, Longines mini-fied its signature DolceVita line, which has been a staple in its collection since the late ’90s, defined by its rectangular case shape and 1927 heritage-inspired design. Just over a week ago, we saw the brand’s latest riff on its adorably miniature DolceVita, which included a newly redesigned double strap in several color options and an additional silvered flinqué dial.
Similar to the breakout models from the Mini DolceVita collection, each of the new additions to the Mini family is housed in a rectangular stainless case measuring 21.50mm x 29.00 mm, available with diamond embellishments if that’s your thing. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the staple “Cosmo” dial Mini DolceVita released last year abandoned its Art Deco roots in any sense, but it continues to be a markedly more streamlined and minimal take on that era of design. high quality replica watches
In contrast, the silvered flinqué decorated dial leans more into the opulence of Art Deco with its elongated Roman numerals, undulating guilloché work effect, tempered blued hands, and an additional small seconds subdial at six o’clock. Given the micro mini stature of these pieces, it will come as no surprise that each is equipped with a quartz movement. Additionally, each Mini DolceVita is water resistant up to 30m. high quality replica watches
While I tend first to connect Longines with its aviation history, the brand also has a longstanding connection with the equestrian world. This informs much of the overall design of the new double leather straps, including the hot-press printing along the holes in the straps numbered from one to six, which references stirrup leathers. When unfurled, there’s something about the shape of the splayed-out strap that would sit right at home among saddles and other leather goods found in a fancy, stylish stable.
