While prints and bold colours brighten up the atmosphere, wearing a fun colourful watch on your wrist is a gentle reminder of pure joy. Why wait for the rainbow in the sky when you can wear one on your wrist?
We’ve seen the watchmakers come out with fun colourful watches- one in every hue and even exquisite dials. Here are the Top 5 Colourful watches to add the fun element in your life!
1. Q Timex Malibu
From the beach to the street, this whimsical style is inspired by Malibu’s beaches and keeps the cool, heritage-inspired characteristics of our original Q Timex 1979 Reissue watch – a rotating bezel, working battery hatch, and domed acrylic crystal – in place. In tones of pink, blue, and sea-glass green, a versatile 36mm stainless-steel case and bracelet radiate tranquillity, while its 50 metres of water resistance ensures you won’t have to leave this beauty onshore. This watch is powered by a battery quartz movement.
With the Q Malibu, replacing the battery is as simple as pulling a lever on the easy-release plate located above the battery compartment. There are gold-tone and blue lacquered links instead of the usual silver. When worn on the wrist, Timex’s Q Malibu models come in a variety of striking colour combinations. Stretch-o-flex” style bracelets are especially unique since they may expand across your wrist and then return to their original size. These are no longer common, but they were popular in the past.
Actually, they’re quite comfortable and functional. Even better, Timex made it simple to size them. The sizing of most of these bracelets was a nightmare. The tool-free link removal system on these watch bands allows anyone to size them in five minutes or less, which is incredible for a watch that costs less than $200.
2. RADO Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic Diver
After a successful debut in 2017, the Rado Captain Cook is a favourite among collectors thanks to its vintage-inspired design that has been modernised with a smooth, contemporary edge. There is now a 37mm variant, a variety of case materials, and most recently, a high-tech ceramic model with a smoked sapphire dial in the range. ‘ The high-tech ceramic technique has now created six new references that are geared toward adventurers.
The Rado Captain Cook High-Tech Ceramic models’ emphasis on ruggedness is well-deserved, given how tough a decent diving watch can be when the situation calls for it. Ceramic is an excellent choice for a case because of its scratch and heat resistance, which makes it more pleasant to wear in the summer and less prone to damage. Ceramic’s other benefits include its colour variety and liquid-like sheen when polished.
For those who prefer to wear a watch that isn’t too big but not too small, this one is a good fit. It is 43mm in diameter, 49.8mm lug-to-lug, and 14.6mm thick. Because of its 300-meter water resistance, it is the first Rado dive watch to receive ISO 6425 certification. ETA’s R763 automatic movement, with its 80-hour power reserve and antimagnetic Nivachron hairspring, remains a fan favourite.
3. Hublot Big Bang Integral Ceramic Sky Blue
Ceramic has been pushed to its limits by Hublot, which has improved its hardness and scratch resistance while also creating new colours and intensifying existing ones.
Ceramic timepieces are incredibly comfortable to wear due to their low thermal conductivity and suppleness. Except for the composite bezel lugs, rubber crown and pusher inserts, and a few titanium or black PVD-coated titanium elements, the new Big Bang Integral Ceramic models are totally constructed of ceramic. These elements include the six H-shaped bezel screws, the chronograph pushers, and the folding clasp.
The 42 mm x 13.45 mm case is water-resistant to a pressure of 10 ATM (about 100 metres / 330 ft). Using alternate polished and satin-brushed surfaces on the case and bracelet, the designer creates sporty lines.
The chronograph column wheel and date disc are visible through the open-worked dial, which is protected by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. The clear 60-minute counter at 3 o’clock is attractively balanced by the skeletonized sub-dial at 9 o’clock that displays the running seconds.
With a power reserve of 72 hours, the Unico HUB1280 self-winding chronograph flyback movement beats at a frequency of 4Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour). The six screws holding the sapphire crystal case back in place reveal the watch’s open-worked oscillating weight.
4. Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400
In addition to the Calibre 400-powered Oris ProPilot X, Hölstein-based maker Oris is launching three additional pilot’s watches. The timepieces have a titanium case and bracelet, which are both constructed of the same alloy. Grey, blue, or salmon-colored dials are available.
This watch’s titanium case is 39 mm in diameter, and it is the only one of its kind on the market. The metal’s lightness is its primary selling point, but it is as hard as stainless steel. With both sandblasted and satin-finished surfaces, the casing from Oris is unique. Inspired by aviation, the contours of this watch are reminiscent of a fluted bezel. Titanium is also used to create the over-sized crown with flank protection. The sapphire crystal case back provides a peek into the timepiece from the back. Finally, all three watches are water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres or 10 bar.
The Super-LumiNova on the hour and minute hands of all three models makes it easier to read the time at night. Caliber 400 from Oris appears in the new collection. In addition to the automatic winding, it features a 5-day power reserve, which makes it suitable for weekend use. Apart from that, the movement is composed of 30 non-magnetic parts, such as a silicon escapement wheel and anchor.
5. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
With a range of dial hues ranging from Aqua to Terra, OMEGA’s 2022 line is all about colour. For those who prefer a larger dial, there are 38 mm variants available in Atlantic Blue, Bay Green, Sandstone, Saffron, and Terracotta. Sea Blue, Lagoon Green, Sandstone, Shell Pink, and Lavender dials are available in 34 mm versions.
With a sun-brushed centre, the new dials are composed of brass, with rhodium-plated hands and indexes on the 38 mm models and 18K white gold hands and indexes on the 34 mm editions, which look like sailboat hulls.
All models have bracelets with rounded links and are made of high-quality stainless steel that has been polished to a mirror finish. The driving force behind this watch is the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800.
This Seamaster strikes the perfect mix between sophistication and ocean spirit, making it the ideal timepiece to wear from Aqua to Terra. The symmetrical design appeals to those who value simplicity, while the accuracy on the inside ensures a high level of performance.
