If you’ve been into the Sydney CBD since the 14th of November you may have seen Myer’s Christmas windows display showing The Tales of Peter Rabbit. The Myer Christmas Windows have been synonymous with Australian Christmas tradition since 1956 – and like many, we too every Christmas find ourselves wading through the crowds to do our Christmas shopping each year.
This year we have came across a few watches that have caught our eye. We found out that besides the usual fashion watches which we rarely review— read quartz — Myer does have a pretty neat selection of mechanical watches as well.
So without further ado, if you are looking for a neat mechanical timepiece for the horophile is your life, or even as a treat fro yourself, here is our selection of some of the best watches you can find in the Myer watches section.
