Since the first look of Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, was unveiled earlier this year, the movie has received immense love all over the world. While it remains to be seen if the Greta Gerwig-directed film will live up to its hype, what is clear is that Barbie-inspired style has swept the fashion circles. So we’ve decided to shortlist the watches that will fit perfectly in this colourful fantasy world.
