Boy London Baseball Cap Boy

It's not been so long since my last Boy London, but I'm blogging another today.

This one isn't quite the same style as the previous, and strangely it doesn't have anything on the back. The watch is a 3 hand dial in a square case, and is powered by a Miyota movement (unnumbered) with an AG4 battery. The watch has a back clip which clamps around the black leather strap (and must be opened to get to the back plate which hides the movement). The strap has an interesting fastening with a pin that fastens though two loops, although that means it isn't adjustable in length.

The face features the Boy London eagle logo at the 12 o'clock position. It also has a large black and white picture of a man wearing one of the iconic Boy London 'BOY' baseball caps.

The Boy brand is an underground fashion brand which has covered everything from punk to club wear. It was started in 1976, but took a break between the mid 80s and 2007. With the lack of information on the back, this could be an original 80s model (or a replica), but I think it is likely a newer model.
