That´s what I would call a colorful summer on the wrist …

There are people who seriously believe that there are only black watches on the market. Buprecisely the opposite is true. These are 10 colorful wristwatches reflecting my – and hopefully also your –  actual summer feelings …

 

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph

That´s what I would call a real funky statement on the wrist. The 42 mm chronograph is waterproof up to 300 meters and also available in bright yellow, bright green and deep blue, just in case you don’t like the bright orange version. Price: 27.300 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Bell & Ross Vintage BR 126 Aéronavale

Normally the Bell & Ross watches are black, black and black… This one makes an exemption from the rule. The 42 mm chronograph is virtually linked with the Navy and therefore appears in a deep navy blue. Very cool! Guys at bell & Ross, well done! Price: 3800 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe

This Blancpain is one of my favorite watches of the year 2016! I like the combination of the grey 43,6 mm ceramic case and that deep blue of the dial and the ceramic bezel. So cool! The blue appears in different nuances, depending on the type of the light that falls on the dial and the bezel.  Price for the up to 300 meters waterproof watch: 11.800 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Breitling Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel

Also Breitling in my eyes tends to present to many black, black and black watches. This “Cobra Yellow” dial bewitches my senses! What a nice contrast to the mat black 45 mm case, waterproof up to 3000 meters. This Avenger is limited edition of 1000 pieces. Price: 4460 Euro including 20 % VAT.

Cartier Calibre Diver Blue Steel

Ever thought of wearing a cool Cartier Diver? This is what I would call an insider tip if you want to wear a decent and masculine luxury watch from Cartier. The 42 mm steel case, waterproof up to 300 meters,  measures only 11 mm in height, so the Cartier Diver also perfectly fits under the cuff of a normal shirt. Price: 7600 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition

This is not a wannabe gold watch, this is a bronze watch. The bronze material used to manufacture the 42 mm case, waterproof up to 100 meters, is not stabilized, so the bronze will very quickly start to change its surface color. What you will get is your individual Oris Diver in colors no one else will have. So everything in the end is possible! One of my favorite watches of the year 2016. Price for the 2000 pieces limited edition: 2600 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Rado True Colours

Rado is meanwhile able to manufacture high-tech ceramic in different colors. This 40,1 mm brown one is very particular, looks like a delicious piece of Swiss chocolate. Pleasantries aside… It´s a real good looking alternative with a quartz movement for the wrist and also available in deep green and deep blue. Price: 1020 Euro including 20 % VAT.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date

This Submariner once was a real trendsetter. People first were shocked when they saw the green Submariner, but quickly began to love it and lovingly call it “Frogmariner”. This was not an insult, but a declaration of love to a meanwhile real cult watch. Price for the 40 mm watch, waterproof up to 300 meters: 8200 Euro including 19 % VAT.

  • What? No white dials, no red dials? ‘-)

    (Above in jest.)

    Nice selection of colorful dials, though I would have definitely gone for a couple of Swatches. They’re lot’s of fun, especially in summer. 🙂
