Heritage-Influenced Watches

These adidas Watches Draw Inspiration from the Golden Age of the 70s

— February 14, 2018 — Fashion
This newly launched collection of adidas watches draw a strong influence from the label's heritage dating back to the 70s. The timepieces recall their historical roots through the collection's four different styles: the ARCHIVE, the PROCESS, the DISTRICT and the CYPHER. All four styles are crafted in a variety of colors and will be available in cities such as Chicago, London, Paris, and Los Angeles come March.

The ARCHIVE watch takes a strong influence from the classic footwear designs with sculpted buttons, its clean surface and is held by a five-link stainless steel bracelet with chronograph technology and dual timezone. The PROCESS watch has a traditional frame and the DISTRICT watch is more contemporary with its round face. The CYPHER watch has a modern encasing with a unidirectional indexed bezel.
