Watches & Jewellery 2022


The 2022 edition of Country & Town House’s Watches & Jewellery, edited by Avril Groom, is the Collector’s Issue, featuring the most covetable – and collectable – gems and timepieces to launch this year. The eye-catching cover shoot, realised by photographer Rachell Smith and C&TH’s Fashion Director Nicole Smallwood, brings together the most exquisite fine jewellery, while the watches shoot, by Ursula Lake and Matthew Shave, offers a humorous take on this season’s most exciting limited-edition watches. There’s also Melanie Grant on when jewellery becomes art, Simon De Burton on the watches to invest in now, Shane C Kurup on the rise of men in gems, and Mary Sanderson on the new designers to note. Finally, Avril Groom uncovers the trend for rough stones, Tim Barber has the latest watch news, and Francesca Fearon compiles swoon-worthy shopping pages.
