Top 100 Watch Trends in 2017

From Lavish Pizza-Branded Timepieces to Celestial Rock Watches

— January 28, 2018 — Fashion
As these 2017 watch trends illustrate, the wrist-worn accessories have a vast range of capabilities, whether it's controlling a car or adding a luxurious touch to an outfit.

Some devices go beyond this, with the 'Ascent Survivor' watch being a great example. Designed for consumers who enjoy outdoor exploration, the device comes equipped with a selection of useful features that could very well save a life. This includes a compass, a fire striker, a ferro rod and an emergency whistle, all of which are hidden by a sleek and durable exterior.

For those looking for something more simple, the 'Freakish Watch' from Sabrina Fossi takes minimalism to a whole new level, with one hour revealed at a time through a cut-out on the face. To see what's beyond these 2017 watch trends, take a look at our 2017 Trend Report.
