Summertime wear - Nine Colorful Watches

Postby koimaster » July 13th 2017, 12:20pm

We can thank the ‘70s for infusing watch design with a much-needed splash of color. Lucky for us, what began in the ‘70s didn’t stay in the ‘70s, and playful hues have continued through the present to give us options beyond just black and white. Now that we’re in the thick of summer (in the northern hemisphere, anyway), it’s the perfect time to put away everything muted and drab and opt instead for something that embodies the season—and yes, that goes for your watch, too. To that end, the worn&wound team put together a guide featuring nine of our favorite colorful timepieces that are sure to bring some seasonal hues to your wrist this summer.

Christian Alexandersen – Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT “Business Timer” ($1,995)

The Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT “Business Timer” (phew, that’s a mouthful) is part of a collection of professional watches highlighting the importance of preserving glaciers. So why should you be wearing these in the summer?

Love that Bulova Chronograph "C" reissue, in fact I wouldn't say no to any of those watches.
Cool article, thanks for posting Alain.

Yeppers...I wouldn't mind having ownership of that fine product of Japan. The nation that gave us bukkake definitely has their feces in one ped cover. 8-)

I think it was about smoking or somebody buying a laptop or something. I'm on LSD.

Good lord. These are supposed to be "watch journalists" and the writing on the Seiko alone is ghey enough to make me deliver a Technicolor yawn.

Just keepin' with the current theme.
