Boy London BOY-200-W

Today's watch is another from the Boy London brand (which I now seem to be collecting), and the second in a style I first published in February.

The watch is by Boy London, and this one has the model number BOY-200-W. Like the other watch i showed in the BOY- series, it is a quartz powered 3 hand dial watch with the Boy London name embossed in the case surrounding the face. This version has the Boy London name in cartoony graphics on the face along with 5 stars. The strap is also in a similar style with a stitched leather and stud design with the name and eagle logo pressed not the brown leather section, and topped off with a mounded BOY buckle.

On the back is the Boy logo, the model number, and a statement that "This is an original Boy London product. Any product not bearing this mark is not genuine". I don't know if a statement like that would really help, as a counterfeiter could just copy the sign too.

The Boy brand is an underground fashion brand which began in 1976 and was started by Stephanie Raynor. The brand has been worn by many celebrities over the years and has worked through the punk and clubbers styles. The brand had a break from the mid 80s through to 2007, and I think that this is one of the watches from after the pause.
