Johnny Depp Style – Watch Fob; Johnny Depp Cannes
Vintage for men can be be your key to setting yourself apart with ease and style. One of the easiest ways to express yourself is with a carefully chosen vintage accessory. As you gain confidence in your sartorial accessorizing, before you know it you may find yourself finding your own Johnny Depp style.
The Mystery of Life: This early 20th C gold watch fob is near and dear to my heart. The question mark was a motif used from the late-Victorian era into the early 20th C. This gold hollow lozenge antique watch fob is set with mined diamonds and a ruby. It was acquired with other phenomenal pieces of jewelry from the estate of a man who, we were told, was one of the inventors of toothpaste (you can’t make this stuff up). The minute it was in my hand, I knew where it had to be; I ignored that initial thought for a few days, and wore it from a gold pendant chain from the same estate purchase. Albeit a super-kakkoii look, I couldn’t shake the nagging knowledge that it already had a new owner, and it wasn’t meant to be me….. Like Excalibur and Arthur, it found its rightful owner.
Given as a gift to its rightful King Arthur, the watch fob made its first appearance on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, attached to a skinny red belt made to match. It’s now traveled the globe making occasional public appearances, including this week at Cannes.
A whole new look awaits you in the world of vintage fashion for men.
