Tom Ford jut showed the world what’s on tap for his Spring 2016 menswear range. Of course, the designer who says he hasn’t worked out in two years, blessed us with a bevy of his signature crisply tailored suits, some imagined in the traditional pinstripe, others boasting colorful suit jackets with a touch of the psychedelic. Ford also put forth a few looks sure to please any stylish member of a biker gang – slim denim pants were paired with cool leather jackets, giving relatively conservative looks a bit of an edge. But the pièce de resistance of Ford’s collection didn’t include any of the actual garments – it was all about the accessories.
Smartwatches have only been around for a short amount of time, but being the innovator that he is, Tom Ford is already imagining the hot-button tech item in a new way. The designer unveiled a pocket watch version of the accessory, attaching an Apple Watch face to a chain.

The New York Times Styles reporter Matthew Schneier spied the piece, marrying old-school sensibilities with a modern edge. It’s certainly a new way to think of the pocket watch and we’re just waiting to see how long it will be until we see a basketball player or rapper hitting the red carpet with one of these in tow. Something tells us the wait will be quite short.
