Yes, it’s almost time! The sun is already starting to shine nicely in spring and the better weather is coming. Now that the weather stays light a bit longer during the day, it is of course a lot of fun to be outside. And that includes the perfect summer watch! We tell you something about the most beautiful watches for the upcoming summer.
Rolex in summery colours
We start with one of the most famous watch brands worldwide: Rolex. Rolex is now a foundation and they make an estimated 1 million watches a year. That sounds like a lot, of course, but the demand for these watches is so great that the manufacturer cannot handle it. This means that the watches available from this Swiss brand on the so-called gray market are slightly more expensive than you are used to.
If we look at a really typical summer watch, then that is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual par excellence. This watch is perfectly suited for both men and women, with a choice of 28, 31, 34, 36, 39 and 41mm. You can choose different dials, but if we may make a suggestion: the salmon pink dial is perfect for summer, as is the light blue dial nicknamed Tiffany. If you’re willing to break the bank for these watches, expect around €8,000 or more, depending on the condition of the watch and the size of the case.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
Another alternative if you want to wear a more classic watch in the summer, the Seamaster Aqua Terra from Omega is one of the coolest watches. A white patterned dial, rose gold in the dial for the hour markers and a steel case in 41.5mm on a leather strap: what more could you want? You can get this watch with a date display or even a day & date display to complete your watch. Price tag? Around €3,000.
Perhaps not such a well-known brand, but this watch brand makes really beautiful watches for an attractive price. For about €1,000 or more you can choose different models, in different sizes from 36mm. You can choose a green dial, a red, a blue, white: the choice is literally huge. In terms of price/quality ratio, Oris is perhaps one of the better choices at the moment, if you look at a nice summer watch.
