York and Front Burrard



Review and photos by Mike Razak

You probably aren’t familiar with York & Front Watch Company. Neither was I. That’s ok. It’s hard to keep track of all the different brands sometimes. But York & Front (named for a major intersection in downtown Toronto, whence the watch) might be one for you to keep an eye on. Their debut effort is The Burrard (named for a major thoroughfare in Vancouver, whence one of the company’s partners), a functional piece that leans toward the office or formal occasions but doesn’t feel out of place when taken out for the weekend. The genesis of The Burrard was a discussion between the owners of Y&F of what the “one watch” would look like. Not finding what they had in mind at a reasonable price point, they set about to create it. And they didn’t do a bad job, either.

I don't hate it.
I didn't even hate the name until I read that it was a fucking intersection.
And the reviewers suggestion that a Y&F logo replace the "12" is the dumbest shit I've read in a long time.

I'd rock it. whatever the hell that means
