If you haven’t been introduced to Vilebrequin, you’re definitely out of the loop. The swimwear brand hailing from France with a renowned St Tropez sensibility has been seen on some of the most influential personas of our time, including David Beckham, Harry Styles and Prince William.
Proving that it’s more than just a swimwear brand, Vilebrequin launched its first ever collection of sunglasses in March this year. And to continue on its expansion of timeless summer essentials, the brand has just released a line of water resistant and lightweight watches.
Starting from $260, the collection comprises of six different designs to fit your poolside or beach lifestyle. While these watches are by no means horological marvels, they’re functional pieces that are hardy enough to withstand some carefree splashing around, thanks to the stainless steel case construction and a water resistance capability of up to 100 meters.
Signature Vilebrequin design tropes are also translated into the design of the watches to function more than just for mere aesthetics. For example, the brand’s iconic tortoiseshell motif is raised on the underside of silicone bands to leave pockets spaces for better breathability.

Available at Vilebrequin stores and online.
