Fashion is constantly in flux, making it hard to keep up with the latest fashions. In 2022, expect an abundance of watch trends to catch fire into the new year. Covering a wide range of lifestyles and aesthetics, our picks for the top watch trends of the new year will work for various styles and occasions. No matter your taste or preference, there’s a timepiece on this list for you.
The Era of Minimalism
Minimalism is a lifestyle that aims to curb waste, often by maximizing the use of space through beautifully symmetric and straightforward designs. In the era of environmental awareness, minimalist watches have soared in popularity. Their basic designs make these versatile timepieces that can pull off any outfit, from formal suit and tie to casual shorts and t-shirt; a minimalist design seldom looks out of place.
Look no further than this quartz Bulova Classic watch for an iconic example of the minimalist design. It features a mineral crystal over a silver dial and stainless steel bezel to give the watch a moon-like shimmer and celestial elegance.
The Return of Vintage
There’s something about the vintage look that fills us with longing for a time we’ve never known. Retro pieces can fill us with nostalgia, but they can also produce feelings of wanderlust and the desire to see things lost to us. These pieces are enchanting and replete with timeless charm. No wonder watch collectors can’t get enough of them, and designers continue to release and re-release them with contemporary finishes for modern audiences.
Mineral crystal protects the steel hands and white dial, providing 100 feet of water resistance. The push-in crown and pin-buckle clasp complete the classic aesthetic this watch is known for.
The New Age of Bronze
The bronze age is back, only this time it's been confined to the world of horology. There are many benefits to going bronze. Price is often cheaper than other metals like rose gold and more resistant to corrosion than steel. Bronze does not rust; instead, it gains a highly desirable patina finish that adds a sense of magnetism to the wearer.
This Bulova Precisionist watch features a jet black dial and leather band contrasting with the bronze-iron plated stainless steel case. This combines the resistance of bronze with the strength of steel to produce a durable timepiece that will last for generations.
These days more and more watches feature androgynous designs that challenge the traditional way of doing things. Women were once expected to sport delicate timepieces that are hard to distinguish from regular bracelets from afar. Bold designs were reserved for men. Women's watches are seen as lowkey, and men's watches are sometimes described as flashy.
However, we've seen a reverse in the trend. Watchmakers are offering women bolder designs, and men are acquiring slim pieces that were once viewed as unsuitable, now considered as high fashion.
This Bulova Diamond Watch with automatic movement is a treasure to behold. Carefully placed diamond indices upon the white dial offer a look of uniformed refinement. This is a compact watch with enough shine to rival a chandelier.
