Although most of the watches that you can find on the market are timeless; there are some that are subject to change based on new trends.
Back in the day, classic watches like ones that run on a mainspring were the main thing, but smartwatches have certainly dominated the watch industry for a couple of years now.
In today’s article, I will go over some key trends that are likely going to be big in 2019 and beyond.
The early iterations of watches were made of basic materials and although they helped tell the time, they are not as sturdy as you’d want them to be.
Fast forward to today and most watchmaking companies are making it a point to create watches that are not only stylish but are also built to last as well.
The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre, for example, is one of the best when it comes to watchmaking using cutting-edge materials and technology.
The above-mentioned timepiece is a chronograph watch that makes use of a cool and unique carbon hairspring. It has an almost all-black aesthetic with some gray accents that look really nice. Even though it doesn’t look great on formal attires; it is definitely something to look out for when it comes to wearing it on a casual basis.
The Retro Vibe
When you look at the watches that were developed in the 70s, you will mostly find timepieces that were created by meshing both design and functionality all in one. The watches since then were basically one or the other, but the retro vibe is certainly going to make a huge comeback.
Take the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback, for example. It has rose gold accents with a black watch face and white/red accents for its dials. Plus, it comes with a black strap that makes everything about the watch look amazing.
Color is the Name of the Game
There was a time where blue accents, blue watch faces, and blue straps were the name of the game and although some really love the said color, there are also some that don’t. Fortunately, new colors are going to be mainstream and you will see some watches that make use of so many different colors.
Now, this is not to say that blue (everything) on watches is going to go away, but this is to say that we are now more open to having new colors on our preferred timepieces and this is certainly going to be a huge trend moving forward.
Now, watchmaking companies that collaborate to create a new line of watches isn’t a new thing, but it certainly has stopped a couple of years back. Tudor and Breitling, for example, have collaborated a couple of times before but in the coming years, expect more collaboration from different watchmaking companies.
Apparently, TAG Heuer and Alec Monopoly is set to collaborate to create more artsy watches that people will love.
