Open your eyes when buying a watch!

Regardless of trends, when buying, it is always important to ensure that the watch matches the existing outfits and clothing style; too much color can quickly appear chaotic and restless. A watch should be a well-considered investment, because you don’t buy a high-quality watch every day and you want to enjoy it for a long time. It is also important to pay attention to which components have been installed, is mineral glass or sapphire glass used? Sapphire crystal is the hardest glass, only diamond is harder. After all, unsightly scratches should be avoided. Is the watch highly waterproof? This is given in bar or atm, the higher the value, the better. 1 bar is roughly equivalent to 0.98 atm. A watch should at least survive a rain shower without damage. What is the quality of the workmanship? How often is the watch worn? In everyday life, the watch strap quickly wears out, which is why it should be stable and well made. How long is the warranty period? This varies from dealer to dealer. We have put together tables for women and men to provide an overview of the price range for which watch for entry-level models.

Top watch trend 2020: sustainability & longevity, watches made of wood or high-quality materials, fair and environmentally friendly production

 

A change can be observed both in the world of women and men, which not only affects everyday life, leaving its biological footprint on this planet with as little CO as possible, even the fashion world is in the midst of “rethinking”. A few years ago only waste separation and fine dust pollution were the issues with regard to environmental friendliness and climate protection, nowadays it is clothing made from recycled textiles, organic cotton, fair prices and better conditions for workers during the production phase that are in the foreground.

Now the time has come on the watch market: sustainability in terms of resources and natural materials such as wood and marble as components of the watch are coming to the fore this year. The trend for watches made of wood began in 2016 and is becoming more and more consistent. Wooden watches look natural, warm and original. The manufacturers pursue concepts in which part of the yield goes to environmental projects or one tree is planted for each watch sold. So if you want to appear grounded and consciously want to do something good with your purchase, you can choose a watch made from natural materials.

Watch trends for women in 2020

We tell you which trendy trends for women are a must-have in 2020. Including naming of trendy ladies watch models.

1. Large dials – but kept simple

This trend remains unbroken: this year, too, people like to make watches with large dials that still appear clear and simple. The digits are either silver-colored, rose gold or gold-colored and straightforward. Timeless elegance is expressed. A light combination with various outfits, whether sporty or chic – large dials give the appearance a sense of style. So if you like it discreet and want a watch that won’t go out of style anytime soon, you will be well equipped with a watch that has a large, white face and that has numerous bracelets to change.

The Daniel Wellington St Mawes has a solid 4 stars on average with over 350 reviews on Amazon.

2. Ladies clock with square dial

In the sign of the times, even angular dials are currently, because they provide variety and are something completely different from conventional round dials. The numerals are also kept discreet and the watch looks chic and at the same time exciting thanks to the new shape. The wearer should have the courage to “scare”.

The watch has a very good 4.6 out of 5 stars for customer ratings on Amazon. Above all, the design and the very light weight of the watch are praised. (As of: 07/13/2019)

3. Bicolor watch for women – marbled dials

So-called bicolor (marbled) dials, which shine in rainbow colors, mother-of-pearl or black and white, are available in different shimmering tones, from a deep blue to white-mother-of-pearl colored dial, everything is available. These clocks are reminiscent of summer, the beach and the sound of the sea. The graphite shimmering dial shown here in combination with the rose gold bracelet and frame gives the watch a bright shine and yet is not ostentatious. Elegance and dreaminess are reflected when looking at these watches. Definitely a trendy watch trend for women in 2020.

4. Charms on the bracelet of the watch

While charms were previously only hip on simple bracelets, the trend has now also arrived in watch bracelets. Any number of charms can be combined with different bracelets and ensure double brilliance, because not only does the noble watch sparkle, but the small charms, which are also available with glitter stones, also shine. Makes the heart beat faster among women jewelry lovers. Definitely eye-catching and an eye-catcher for women who want to appear with bling-bling.

5. Change the ribbon! (Interchangeable bracelet)

Countless outfits in the closet but only one watch strap? So that there is no monotony and you are well equipped for every occasion, numerous bracelets and the possible combinations must be considered and carefully selected when buying a watch. A classic leather bracelet in black, brown and white or bracelets in rose gold and silver made of stainless steel are indispensable for true fashionistas. Those who like more color when it comes to watches can fall back on red or azure blue bracelets. Fabric bracelets made of nylon in black and white or red and blue are also available, so if you like it colorful, you will get your money’s worth here. Below is a small selection of high quality interchangeable bracelets for women (unisex):

6. Filigree bracelets in combination with a watch

In connection with filigree bracelets, a watch is highlighted even more on the wrist. It is style-conscious if you stick to one color and z. B. rose gold bracelets can also be combined with a corresponding watch.

Watch trends for men in 2020

The simplicity of the watch continues to be popular among men of creation. Discreet dials, either pure white or pure black, monochrome leather bracelets – it will remain largely reserved in 2020. A slight upheaval is imminent, however, whether, for example, watches with NATO straps will prevail in the long term remains questionable. We are presenting the current trends for men’s watches here and are looking forward to their development.

1. Flat clocks

The watch cases are getting flatter, they look quite noble, are comfortable to wear and give the outfit an elegant touch. At the moment, the number of millimeters in the case thickness is between 7.5 and 9 for flat watches.

4.4 Stars on Amazon

2. Minimalist watches for men

Minimalism is also in this year, simple watches with subtle digits, either as simple lines or not all digits are marked. In addition, inconspicuous pointers on a white background and a classic bracelet made of leather or stainless steel are in demand. These watches have what it takes to become modern classics.

3. Black men’s watches

The “little black dress” as a timeless classic? When it comes to watch trends 2020, you can’t go wrong with black watches in the men’s world this year either. This trend from previous years remains constant, the bracelet should also be kept black to look complete and give the outfit a classic touch. The Skagen watch has an average of 3.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon. In addition to the very good design, the readability is mainly criticized. (As of 07/13/2019)

An alternative to Skagen is the men’s watch by Hugo Boss from the Hugo #move collection, which is completely black with red highlights and comes in 42mm and a black mesh strap:

4. Chronograph

Chronographs are also a recurring watch trend 2020 for men, they not only look interesting and sporty, above all, it is practical to be able to use the time stop function in addition to the regular time display. They look sporty and elegant, especially on black, flat dials. If the numbers are kept discreet, you avoid an overloaded effect.

The Skagen model currently has a very good 4.6 out of 5 stars with 3 ratings. (As of 07/13/2019)

5. NATO wristbands and mesh wristbands

This season, too, watches with mesh bracelets and NATO bracelets are popular. What is the difference? The Nato bracelet is made of nylon, either plain or in black and white and other colors in combination with white, as well as a metal clasp and two metal rings. The colored variants are suitable for hipsters who want to set trends and set a special accent for their outfit with the watch. They are far more eye-catching than Milanaise bracelets. The Milanaise bracelet (derived from Milan, where it originated), also known as a mesh bracelet, is mostly made of stainless steel and looks like a mesh, which is what the term mesh stands for, which means mesh. It is heavier than a leather or NATO strap and less flexible. It works especially well with the business look.

Conclusion & outlook

The watch trends for women and men in 2020 are daring, but not completely new either. As in fashion in general, certain patterns repeat themselves every few years. However, some trends such as minimalism and black men’s watches remain constant and seem unwilling to disappear anytime soon. Other trends such as the (very beautiful) rainbow-colored dials, on the other hand, are more temporary phenomena that are likely to play a subordinate role again in the next few years.

Nevertheless, individuality is very important and the variety is higher than ever before, so that every man or woman who is looking for his own individual accessory should be happy. In any case, we hope to be able to give you a few incentives with this article, which diverse possibilities the (quartz) watch market offers in 2020.
