Well, time has certainly become a frivolous concept since the past year. I mean, did 2020 really happen? Isn’t 2021 giving such a déjà vu vibe? But amidst this time conundrum, we believe watches remain a wardrobe and style essential, after all, they aren’t just timekeepers – they also serve as a statement accessory, an exquisite piece of jewellery, or even an heirloom. And as we hope to be able to spend this summer outside, there’s nothing better than mood-boosting vibrant hues in these déjà vu moments. Therefore, we have put together some of the most flamboyant watches to suit your summer wardrobe (and mood) in our edit below.
From Hermes Heure H Watch with trademark orange strap to Chanel J12 White Electro Dream with bezel and dial hour markers set with rainbow sapphires, from ‘pretty in pink’ Piaget Possession Watch to ‘as blue as the sky’ Breguet Reine de Naples 8918 – you’ll find a galore of lively colours to add that perfect amount of brightness to your summer style. And those who have a sweet corner for the season’s hottest horology hue – green, check out Buccellati Opera with diamond-encrusted dial and emerald strap, IWC Schaffhausen Portugeiser Automatic Chronographer with a distinctive green dial, and Gucci Grip with malachite dial and diamond-set yellow gold bezel. On the other hand, if you are in the market for a watch that’s intricate yet extravagant, pick ‘RM 71-02 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman’ Diana by Richard Mille with around 915 jewels that include sapphires, rubies, diamonds, lapis lazuli, white mother-of-pearl, and turquoise or Bulgari Divas’ Dream Watch with sapphire, aventurine dial with a miniature hand-painted peacock.
