In partnership with Japanese style pioneer Poggy, Hamilton has created the new Ventura POGGYTHEMAN limited edition watch. This timepiece was launched exclusively on highsnobiety.com on November 20, 2019.
Poggy is acclaimed for his eclectic influences and his encyclopedic knowledge of the fashion, music and cultural scenes that inspire him. He is also famous for his combination of classic tailoring and young street style, which he fuses authentically to perfection.
Poggy has always been a huge fan of the futuristic, asymmetric piece, which is one of the most distinctive in the world of watches. Not only did it make history as the first electric watch powered by a battery, it also won the heart of one of Poggy’s personal style icons: Elvis Presley.
Powered by a quality Swiss-made quartz movement, the new Ventura POGGYTHEMAN is presented in a full black edition with pink indexes and accents on the dial and pink lining of the black leather strap.
The eye-catching color scheme was inspired by the bright pink suits Elvis used to wear on stage and is paired with black as a nod to the original 1957 design. Limited to 500 pieces, the new Ventura POGGYTHEMAN is a truly unique take on a 20th century icon.
To further express the mixture of inspired timeless trends, Poggyworked with prominent street collage artist Kosuke Kawamura.
Born in Hokkaido, Japan in 1976, MotofumiKogi, better known as Poggy, is recognized as one of the world’s most influential fashion curators. Mastering all of fashion’s fundamentals allowed him to achieve his present style defined as Sartorial Street Style, a mix of authentic traditional wear and street wear, customized with his personal touch. He started his own project “POGGY’S BOX” in 2016 and hosted pop-up stores in Tokyo, announcing the launch of the brand POGGYTHEMAN.
