50 Classic Watch Designs

From Minimalist Mosaic Watches to Limited-Edition Luxury Watches

— August 16, 2010 — Fashion
This cluster of classic watch designs is proof that time-honored timepieces are, well, timeless. They may have a few updated features, but for the most part the watches featured here all draw from classic designs. Whether they are retro-styled digital watches or OLED pocket watches, classic watch designs are popping up everywhere. From minimalist mosaic watches to limited-edition luxury watches, it's time to go back.

Implications - Due to the recent recession, fashion trends have taken a turn into the past. Budget-conscious consumers now head to thrift and vintage stores for inspiration and find it in classic pieces. Companies who wish to appeal to this youthful fashion-conscious demographic can incorporate elements of antiquity into their product lines.
