The most colourful watches for Summer

As the days get even hotter and the drinks are on ice, you’ll want to make sure your attire is matching your mood to keep in with the Summer vibes.

You’ll need a watch that can withstand daily wear and tear and is waterproof but the sun’s out – so it has to be bold and beautiful. Something robust enough to go from daywear to dinner without having to change the straps!

So, let’s dive in and check out some of the most colourful watches for Summer.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ‘Michael Phelps’

If you’re more likely to be in the water than dry land on your holiday, then check out a larger professional diver’s limited edition watch this season.

The funky blue and orange Omega Planet Ocean ‘Michael Phelps’ edition is a great choice for swimmers and divers alike, with a fab 600m water resistance.The white ceramic dial features blued applied indexes and an Arabic numeral 12 in orange. The watch boasts an integrated blue structured rubber strap with blue-orange rubber lining and orange stitching.

On the reverse side of the watch there is a Michael Phelps logo on the sapphire crystal caseback, which reveals the Master Chronometer calibre 9900 in action. 

Breitling Superocean Heritage

With the brand’s signature bezel design, polished ceramic ring and wing logo, this one is instantly recognisable as Breitling.

This elegant yet bright blue Heritage model is a great way to enjoy modern movement teamed with vintage-look. At 200 meters water resistant it’s a great choice for diving or general beachwear – and is certainly a keeper for the Summer.

Available in a variety of sizes and materials including stainless steel and 18k red gold, the Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic features other coloured dials too, either with a matching mesh bracelet, or a “mesh-styled” rubber strap fitted with a folding buckle.  It’s powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B20.

Richard Mille Bonbon collection 

If you’re going all out bold, bright and beautiful, it’s got to be this sweet treat from Richard Mille.

His creations are always easy to spot in a crowd thanks to his avant-garde styling, generous use of colour and overall level of technical sophistication.

A revamped version of the RM 16-01 Automatic Citron, this multi-coloured treasure is ‘Fraise’ from the Richard Mille BonBon collection and is limited to just 30 pieces.

The miniature sculptures on the dial are painted in acrylics before being lacquered by hand. Finally, a ‘sugar coating’ effect was achieved using powdered enamel and the sand found in hourglasses – quite the creation.

There are 10 releases in the collection – some with sweets, fruit or both!

Hublot Big Bang Unico

A new summer version of the iconic Hublot Big Bang Unico now comes in radical purple!

The 42mm case is lightweight aluminium and has a satin and polished finish in the unusual shade, which boasts protection from scratches.

Powered by the in house chronograph calibre HUB1280, its column wheel is visible through the dial and boasts a 72-hour power reserve. 

The hands and hour-markers are finished in the same purple color, with splashes of luminescent white throughout.
