A Pretty New Watch for Spring!

Hello March! How nice to see you! Since moving to Sweden the 3rd month of the year gives me a glimmer of hope that spring is finally around the corner, even if there is still snow on the ground! Any day now the daffs will be out and the shops will be transformed into havens of crisp, light colours, soft pastels and the odd zingy hue - don't you just love that?! I felt this called for a mini pre-season celebration - a new timepiece. Meet my new friend from TRIWA (oh how I love being an ambassador for this lovely Swedish brand!).

Rose Svalan! This fab time-piece caught my eye at the TRIWA atelier in Stockholm back in December.  And it's finally hit the market as one of their new spring arrivals. I think it was the rose gold case, light organic handmade leather strap, and over-sized feel that did it!   

Beneath the Rose Svalan is a cookery book handwritten by my husband's Swedish grandmother Olga (her cinnamon buns have been immortalised in my Lagom book because they're just SO GOOD - in fact, the French version even comes with a separate recipe card!) and an old workman's stool which I use as a bedside table. I didn't really think about it when I took the picture, but all three of these items are made from authentic materials that only get better with age.

Another thing I love about TRIWA watches is that the straps are handmade from Swedish organic leather produced by the renowned Tärnsjö tannery. Tärnsjö is one of the remaining 5% of tanning houses worldwide that still employ vegetable tanning where bark extract is used instead of chrome. The beauty is that the process has a minimal impact on the environment and it makes the leather age gracefully with a nice patina.

What do you reckon? Could you imagine having the Rose Svalan as part of your spring wardrobe? If not, there are also whole load of other new arrivals to choose from here. They ship worldwide too. Just saying!

Have a lovely day!

PS take a look at other styles I've featured here, here and here (didn't the man do a good job in this shoot - a true #husbandofinstagram?! He's so happy with his Smoky Nevil too!).

    1. So pleased with the watch, it's perfect for spring!

  2. That is a beautiful watch indeed! But I will note that it is a Birch Falken, not a Rose Svalan. They look very similar but the Falken is slightely bigger and has the gold "falk-eye" where as the Svalan's eye is just white :)
