Father’s Day is around the corner. Stop searching for a gift for Dad because AnalogShift has the answer thanks to its most recent, pretty incredible affiliation with Grahame Fowler to create a custom accessories collection designed for watch collectors.The London-born, New York-based Fowler is a globally well-known haberdasher and a collector of vintage watches, so he has the perfect solution for collectors: watch rolls, satchel bags, tote bags designed to help collectors carry and protect their watches.
The <GAS> line (Grahame Analog Shift) launched just last month and features totes created in leather and in canvas sailcloth, with each of the materials created in military-inspired colors. There is even a “Diamond-Quilted cotton watch bandolier that snaps securely into the interior of the bag providing 10 soft, padded compartments to carefully and discreetly transport timepieces. The bandolier can be easily unsnapped and unrolled – like a typical watch roll, to display the watches in a protected manner, while the main compartment has the capacity to hold any other related items.”
According to Analog Shift, “The leather version, called the “GTG MK I Satchel Bag” is offered in PVD (black) and Rootbeer (brown) colorways, borrowing terms from insider horological-fan lexicon. The canvas version, called the “GTG MK II Satchel Bag” is made of 100% cotton finished with Essex Leather accents and brass hardware and is offered in Hulk (olive) and Cola (fox/tan) colorways. Rounding out the multi-purpose carry-all bags and utilizing the bandolier system in a more casual manner is the “GTG MK III Tote Bag,” which is rendered in Navy Blue Snowflake cotton canvas and has a riveted leather interior bottom for extra stability.”
As to the watch rolls, there is a three-watch roll, as well as “The MoD” watch 12-watch roll with a large zippered pocket made in olive green English Millerain Canvas Sailcloth with a white cotton canvas interior and is finished off with bridle leather and brass accents.” Prices for the entire GAS line range from $140 to $720 and the collection is vast. . We invite you to visit AnalogShift to check out the collection (which also includes document wallets) for yourself. Dad will be glad you did.
