Colourful watches from Breo, Nautica and Casio in this summer, says expert

First published: 25-05-2012

A leading men’s fashion expert has singled out three colourful mens watches from manufacturers Casio, Breo and Nautica as must-haves for the summer months.

With the UK enjoying something of a heatwave, the city streets are abuzz with people soaking the summer sun, while they have a chance.

And though the usual mix of vivid styles, from sunglasses to sandals remain a fixture of these fashionable types, a new trend for vivid timepieces has emerged of late and it’s not the girls that are leading the trend either.

Writing on men’s fashion forum, resident expert Emmet Purcell admits we have seen “an explosion of colours in recent times” when it comes to watches.

To offer some assistance to those seeking the watch for them, Mr Purcell has also kindly picked out a few highlights for men to consider, if wishing to buy into the trend.

First up there is the Unisex Breo Binary chronography watch, which offers a vivid design and striking green rubber strap and special LCD dial alongside chronography quartz movement.

Allied to this there is the mens analogue Nautica chronograph watch.

Crafted in a striking orange design, this chunky time piece is certainly one to catch the eye and boasts triple hand analogue movement, notched indices, chronograph sub dials and a unique date function window all within a stainless steel case.

Finally no countdown would be complete without a vivid G Shock watch from Casio. The X-Large GA-110FC-1AER is just that featuring the usually ultra-durable design synonymous with the timepiece. Designed with large buttons and embossed indexes, the inclusion of an extra rivet bezel adds further strength to the piece.

In any instance, Purcell reminds watch buyers to keep an eye out for anything “eye-catching, trendy and sure to have an individualist style."

Meanwhile, with the Queen’s Jubilee just around the corner, Adidas has unveiled a series of Union Jack watches that could prove the ideal summer purchase, offering a touch of patriotism along the way.
