First published: 07-02-2019


If you're looking to incorporate a silver watch into your wardrobe, there's never been a better time than now. Diverse styles, innovative technology, and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques run rife through each silver watch collection, whether it's urban street style, luxury, or designer brands you're interested in.

The only downside is the overwhelming amount of choice on offer – but we can help with that. We've searched our silver watch database high and low to find awe-inspiring timepieces from brands like STORM, Gucci, Vivienne Westwood, and Raymond Weil. Explore some of our favourites to get inspired.

Stand out from the crowd

If your personal sense of style tends to be on the edgy side of the fashion spectrum, consider a silver watch from STORM. The London brand has been ripping up the rulebook since the late 1980s and now has the kind of cult status usually reserved for rockstars.

The ladies STORM Cosima watch is fresh and modern with its unusual octagonal dial and link chain, blurring the line between watch and bracelet with ease.


Go out of this world

The men's Interstellar blue watch from STORM is equally as out there, and features a strong cosmic influence with a pair of outer galactic ships on the second hand. Made from stainless steel, it promises to feel both comfortable and robust on your wrist, and is up to 50m water resistance for added peace of mind.


It's all in the name

Vivienne Westwood has always been a fashion innovator where others have followed, and the Bloomsbury II watch is the perfect example of where punk meets polished to create something beautiful. The sleek silver bracelet and case allow it to be worn professionally, while the raised tartan detail on the dial nods towards the brand's rebellious nature.


A starry hint of silver

Updating the classic dress watch with modern detail has worked wonders for Gucci and the G-Timeless collection. This ladies' watch features a dark, dreamy dial that depicts Gucci's vision of the universe, while the old-school silver case has timeless charm.

One of a kind

This limited-edition men's Bowie watch by Raymond Weil is clever in that it manages to be subtle while referencing several key points of the music icon's career in the 1970s. The vinyl dial features intricate groove detail, while the lighting bolt marker nods toward the Aladdin Sane album cover.

The logo at 6 o' clock was designed by Andy Warhol, and the image of Bowie on the reverse of the watch was taken by Terry O'Neill back in 1974. Limited to just 3,000 pieces worldwide, this Swiss Made watch is destined to become a rarity in years to come.
