Some colours are far more popular in the world of watches, black watches more so than others. Blue timepieces come in close second for being effortlessly cool, timeless, and with an element of fun. White watches sit on the other end of the spectrum (quite literally) and they unabashedly scream “too rich to care”. Notoriously prone to sweat stains, dirt, and everything in between, they’re commonly known for being exclusively made for the wealthy, who wouldn’t so much as bat an eyelid when their timepiece gets grubby.
However, if you eventually work up a courage or are feeling bold, take a dive into the deep end and you’ll find that white watches are just as versatile and contemporary as their other coloured counterparts. For one, they’re extremely prominent — you’ll find it incredibly easy to complete any ensemble with them. White watches have long been the go-to favourite for those seeking a luxury timepiece. Besides giving way to eye-catching details, they can also be paired with different occasions and outfits to satisfy both formal and casual events.
Besides, if you’re a fan of diamonds, white watches are known for bringing out the sparkle more effectively than other colours, as seen in Chanel’s icy Boy.Friend piece and Patek Philippe’s Aquanaut. If you veer on the sporty side, Omega’s White Side of the Moon is a special edition that sits on the flip side of the now-famous Dark Side of the Moon.
Here are the white watches you need to complete your collection this winter.
