A New Year Means New Watch Trends

It is pretty evident from what we have already seen this year that 2012 will continue some trends and drop others. In this final quarter of 2011 we are still seeing the oversized faces. What we are also starting to see, though, is a shift toward androgyny and modern designs once forgotten along with the 1980s and 1990s. Digital is making a comeback. In the other direction, because there will always be some polarization of watch trends, we are seeing a call to the mechanical, making the inner clockwork visible through the face. It is almost reminiscent of Victorian clockwork, but it is very much a product of the modern age.

While it may not be as prevalent as the chronograph, polyurethane digital watches are being produced again. They are vintage inspired pieces. There are men's Fossil watches following this very design. They mostly have rectangular faces, following suit with the deco designs from the past. They look cool as casual wear while also remaining comfortable for active living.

The ladies Fossil watches, however, are taking on a different style. They're following the small face, bracelet design. These delicate timepieces will also be making a comeback, and act as a necessary rival to the oversized watches as of late. The balance will be struck again. The tiny traditional faces are sleek in silver-tone stainless steel. Bejeweled watches act as a jewelry accessory just as much as they do a watch.

Speaking of stainless steel, who says it cannot be colorful? You can find plenty of Armani watches in two-tone designs. The more basic ones are in silver and black, often with grey and gold tones. Other brands carry brighter color casing, some of which are silicone wrapped for the effect.

New generations are starting to realize that watch designs do not need to be confined by gender stereotypes. One example was the cross-over this past year of women's oversized watch faces. Swatch watches make artist-inspired pieces that are gender-neutral. Contemporary design codes do not often abide by the norms we took for granted. Women's sport timepieces will now feature chronographs. Some leather bracelet watches are available for men. The lines between fashion and feature are blending to create new ideas, and it is probably for the better as it increases the target consumer audiences.

The least anybody could say is that the future of watch-making will be interesting. There are a lot of things to keep an eye on for the upcoming calendar year.

On A Budget Swiss Army Watches For Men And Women
As children and teenagers, our parents most likely splurged on us if we asked to own a watch. Our first watch quite possibly came from a Happy Meal or a vending machines. If we were lucky, we owned a $20 watch from Disney World with Mickey Mouse on it. Some of us might still own that watch. But unless your parents had a great deal of cash lying about, the watches they gifted you probably cost under $50. Who could blame them? Children aren't the most reliable caregivers when it comes to...

Stuhrling Watches Are Eternally Classic Watches
Each decade leaves its mark. The 1940's were flush full of patriotism, the 1950's encouraged the development of the nuclear family, and the 1960's were devoted to the modernization of home and fashion. Then came a revolution promoting the casual life, not the high-end products in the market. The 1970's, 80's and 90's were all about shabby chic and crazy fashions. Throughout all of these decades, however, there were a few surviving classics. Stuhrling watches became one of them. Stuhrling...

Thoughts On Watch Repair
You have to love what watch repair can do for you. I mean let us face it, watches do not come cheap. Well, that is not entirely true but it does hold true for a very good watch. It does even more so for the excellent ones. With that said, you have to be careful with how you take care of your watch. If you do not wear your watch out often then you have less of a chance of damaging it. But if you are like me and where your watch almost every single day, that affords a ton of opportunities for...

Staying On Your Watch Game
A lot of us would like to own more watches than we do. It is simply a matter of practicality and affordability. By looking into watch straps and watch bands for sale, we can choose different straps and bands for a watch (duh!) which in turn can give the watch a new look and make it easily incorporated into new outfits. It is not the ideal solution to the not enough watches dilemma, but is certainly a good start. If you have a watch on cloth or leather straps you may consider breathing new...

A Stuhrling Watch Throughout The Ages
Family heirlooms are an interesting tradition. What each family values is so different. For some, it's a piece of jewelry, for others it's a simple piece of décor. It doesn't even have to be an item that has any monetary value. You give it value by carrying on this time-honored tradition. For whatever reason, it means something special to you and your family. In my family the heirloom is a watch, a Stuhrling watch to be more precise. It began with my grandfather. When my grandfather sought...
