All I Know is What’s on the Internet exhibition at Photographers’ Gallery will be on until February 24th.

Smart watches are soaring this year with the range of choices. Dominated by the Apple watch, classic watch-making brands have followed suit, and added technology to beautifully crafted time pieces. A fusion of the old and new. A watch isn't simply always there to tell the time, as the icon Ian Fleming once said, "A gentleman's choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit.” The Voice of London Lifesty
