Whether you call them watches or timepieces, these extraordinary devices are continuing to see innovation despite people shifts towards more technological options, such as smartphones. This list of 2018 watch trends clearly shows that these stylish statement pieces aren't ready to fade into obscurity and are instead being celebrated and innovated in the modern world.

Featured on this list is Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000, a perfect example of the collision between modern capabilities and classic aesthetics. Modeled after an iconic Casio from the 80s, this timepiece strikes a nostalgic silhouette and is sure to conjure images of a less technological time. At the same time, the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000 gives wearers the ability to connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth and pull power straight from the sun.

Also featured on this list is the Astronomia Tourbillon Clarity Octopus. This luxury timepiece showcases just how intricate watches can be, even without modern features, and is almost more of a kinetic structure. The dial features a striking 3D octopus and plenty of moving parts that are simply meant to dazzle.
