Top 25 Watch Innovations in August

From Blurred Face Timepieces to AI Smart Watches

— August 18, 2019 — Fashion
The top August 2019 watches offer a look at the past, present and future of design. With the recent 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, many special edition watch designs have been released to commemorate the event, including the UNDONE x Peanuts Lunar Mission Watches and a new Omega moon watch.

With 80s and 90s nostalgia at an all-time high, many watch brands are releasing designs that incorporate retro elements and colors alongside features that are relevant to consumers of today. Looking even further back in time, some watch designers also released designs that pay tribute to popular steampunk styles and ancient Greek influences.

For those who are more interested in artful designs and mindful experiences than timekeeping altogether, there's the Relax by StudioDWAS timepiece.
