Watches to look out for in 2018

While 2018 is now well underway, there’s still plenty to look forward to from the months ahead – particularly if you’re interested in seeing what’s coming up in the world of watches.  Wristwatches are ever-evolving – and while some of us may have leaped over to the smartwatch game in recent months, there are still plenty of solid, traditional timepieces that offer style, functionality and practicality arriving on the horizon.

Boss Smartwatches

Hugo Boss is moving into the world of wearable tech this year, with all of the aesthetics and class we’ve come to expect from them – along with call alerts and near-field communication (which will allow you to pay for items with just a swipe of the wrist!).

The Movado Large Bold

If striking, monochromatic design and a minimalist approach to analogue timepieces are on your wish list, you can do far worse than keep your eye out for Movado’s latest luxury offering, 2018’s Large Bold.  This bracelet watch comes with a fair price tag but looks set to weather everything you could possibly throw at it.

The Shinola Runwell

This callback to traditional, simplified analogue watches of old will appeal to anyone with more than a streak of ‘hipster’ fashion in them – its bright, monochromatic face and pleasing brown leather strap hark back to simpler times – it’s a very pleasant look!

The Nixon Rotolog

An analogue watch with a difference – this minimised ticker-timer wristwatch boasts that contemporary wooden sheen along with a curious little window – it’s not your average timepiece, but we’re certain it’ll find fans.

The Apple Watch

 But of course – Apple is on its third iteration of its celebrated wrist device, though potential wearers may do well to see what the firm rolls out in their Autumn event later this year.
