Brightly-coloured watches are 'chic'

First published: 02-09-2009

It may be a case of going back to basics this autumn, should a person really want to impress their friends with a stylish approach to wearing watches, according to one writer.

Kim Peiffer, a writer for NBC Chicago, explained that Nixon watches truly offer one of the coolest timepieces to wear which may appeal to people wanting to give their ensemble a subtle chic.

The expert believes that the Widgi watch, which retails for around £50, can "pop some colour into your life" through its unique design, presenting the time in a colour matching the moulded silicone strap and locking loop closure, with buyers having the choice of 11 different hues.

In regards to the lack of precious metals in the timepiece, Ms Peiffer added: "Forget silver and gold."

Nixon watches are predominantly targeted at the youth market and has since expanded to provide offerings for surfers, snowboarders, skaters and other people taking part in extreme sports.
