Moving With The Times: The Best Colourful Men’s Watches

Watch trends are taking a turn for the vibrant. Here Port curates the best wristwear to put some spice into your accessorising. 

Ironically, when it comes to horological trends, timelessness often prevails. Muted metallics and monochrome features have long led the way, providing the sort of aesthetic longevity required of a piece that might set you back the best part of a month’s salary and more. Breaking away from the classics might seem like a big leap for such an investment – but incorporating a rainbow into your wristwear simply means you’ll be moving with the times as colourful men’s watches continue to rise in popularity. Colour isn’t an entirely new concept - navy dials and marine green trims have become so commonplace now that they don’t really register as vibrant at all. But this new wave of colour-rich watches are cheery and full of flair, proving that dabbling with your paint palette needn’t feel gourdy or flash in the pan. In fact, you might be surprised at just how versatile they really are - and how much your look can benefit from the boost.

If your head is spinning more than the hands on your trusty timepiece, then consider Beaverbrooks to be the safe space in which to select something new. Beaverbrooks has long been a go-to for shopping some of the best men’s watches, with an abundance of styles and colours from esteemed brands like Breitling, TAG Heuer and OMEGA - names that will feel reliable even if the colour you’re exploring is a little out of your depth. There are red hues and glitter accents to be had, with technicolour straps and orange bodies galore. But don’t go thinking that embracing ever brighter and bolder watches means that quality and wearability is compromised. Au contraire! While the colours on offer feel fresh and new, the fundamentals of design stay true to their makers. Think high-quality materials, automatic and quartz movements, and water-resistant features - all the markers of a luxury make.

Not every outfit may have the capacity for accessories or jewellery, meaning it’s often down to watches to do the heavy lifting when it comes to self expression. With a refined rainbow of dial shades beginning to emerge from Gucci to Tissot and even DOXA - succumbing to the colourful timepiece trend means you'll be getting an added layer of vibrancy without detracting from the luxury of the coveted brand. Scroll on to discover Port's pick from the season below, each piece introducing a feel-good sense of colour without ever compromising on the enduring style required from your wristwear.
