This year watch brands are not only making advancements in watchmaking technology but they are using bold colors to set them apart from the rest.  Many of this year’s introductions prove that 2014 was a colorful year in the world of luxury Swiss watches. The world’s top watch brands are taking center stage with timepieces featuring eye-catching colors on dials, hands, and straps. With rose gold timepieces becoming more popular, watch brands are using color to merge traditional metals with modern designs. Today we’re seeing bold color dials in deep reds and bright blues. Parmigiani Fleurier offers a few watches that feature a rich reds or vivid blues, and Patek Philippe and Jaeger-LeCoultre have introduced models that feature a stunning midnight blue dial. It’s easy to create a watch that represents your style when you pair these unique color dials with a bright color strap.

Vintage inspired color schemes are also bringing new life to classic styles. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin 1931 features pink gold with a chocolate dial and a burgundy cordovan strap giving this piece a classic yet modern look.

Brands like TUDOR are no stranger to color. The iconic TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue features a royal blue with a bright golden orange color scheme. TUDOR’s Heritage Black Bay collection also utilizes color brilliantly by incorporating burgundy or midnight-blue bezels, black-chocolate or deep-black dials, and steel blue straps. Color is no longer just an accent, it is defining the style of the watch. Setting itself apart from other sports watches out there. Today it’s easy to add a little color to your life…or your wrist! Keep in mind that a timepiece is an expression of who you are so don’t be shy to incorporate a little color in your timepiece. Whether it’s swapping out that black strap for a bold blue or going all out with a bright red dial, you’re sure to create a style all your own.
