Despite almost everyone having a mobile phone, watches are as popular as ever. Now more a fashion statement than a functional item, watches are a must have accessory and there are plenty to choose from. They don’t have to be boring either as there are a myriad of designs to excite you and one way you can liven things up is to go for a model with funky colouring. If smartwatches turn you off and you want something different and instantly noticeable consider the following models to brighten up your wrist.
Several of the latest watches feature striking shades of blue. Take a look at the Men’s Tissot PR100 and PR100 Chronograph with gorgeous blue faces partnered with classical design. The Men’s Bulova Marine Star Watch and the Fossil Retro Traveller Watch also have striking blue faces paired in both models with stainless steel straps.
Roses are Pink
Blue is right on trend and so is pink in the shape of rose gold. If you don’t have the budget for a solid gold watch there are several models which use the same hues in less expensive materials but to the same effect. The Michael Kors Bradshaw Rose-Tone Chronograph for men has a rose tone stainless steel body and strap and the Michael Kors Madsion watch for ladies features rose tone stainless steel and has a crystals bordering the face. For a more edgy look consider the Hugo Boss Men’s 1512886 which combines rose tone stainless steel with black in a stand out design.
The Future is Orange
Orange is also strongly featured in the latest styles. The Tissot Parker Limited Edition watch has orange details on the face and a bright and breezy orange strap. The highly futuristic Men’s Police Hydra Watch has an almost luminous orange face with a rubber strap that looks really space age! Ladies will love the Skagen SKW2015 watch which has Scandinavian simplicity of design but with a striking orange rimmed face and white strap.
I have to admit that red is my favourite colour and so I am bound to be drawn to anything featuring the colour of danger but I think you will love red watches to. The Men’s TW Steel Grandeur Tech Watch Partners a stunning scarlet face with a stainless steel case and black rubber strap. The Ladies Mondaine Simply Elegant Watch uses colour with more subtlety. This one has a white face and classic black leather strap but features a red second hand.
If you want to make a statement with colour then choose a striking watch to complete your wardrobe. Just about every colour in the rainbow is out there and you can opt for a striking piece with a bright face or strap, or a watch with accent colours. There are styles for men, women and the kids and you don’t have to break the bank to find something that little bit different.
