wholesale replica watches brands are already capitalizing on the positive power of the 2021 Pantone Colors.
The Pantone Color Institute, which regularly tracks color across all industries and publishes its annual Color of the Year, spoke. The colors of 2021 are not just one shade, but two: Ultimate Gray and Glow. The lighting is a bold yellow, and the ultimate grey is exactly what it sounds like. Not one of 50 grays, but a rich warm gray that is expected to evoke warm emotions when juxtaposed with Illuminating. However, since we already have a lot of gray in our lives in 2020, we’re witnessing certain watch brands jumping on the yellow shades ahead of Pantone’s Illuminating announcement.
In the second half of 2020, we have seen various watch brands launch watches with yellow dials and accents in an attempt to lift the spirits. Therefore, watch brands seem to be ahead of the trend. Let’s take a look at several hot yellow watches launched this year.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual
This year, Rolex went all out with some amazing watches. Among them: Oyster Perpetual in three sizes. The 41mm watch seen here is made of Oystersteel for the case and bracelet. Bright yellow dial with hour markers in 18-karat gold. This 41mm watch is powered by the Rolex 3230 Superlative self-winding movement, developed in-house and patented, one of which is the brand’s Chronergy escapement. To some, Rolex’s bright yellow is surprising, but those familiar with Rolex know that the color has always been part of the brand’s history.
Breitling Endurance Pro
As this year’s special collection, the Breitling Endurance Pro watch is available in a variety of colors, but the bold yellow – with a yellow strap, yellow dial and yellow crown – is by far the most exciting. Made from Breitlight®, a Breitling proprietary material, this lightweight watch is more than three times lighter than titanium and nearly six times lighter than stainless steel. It is also non-magnetic and highly resistant to corrosion and scratches. Designed for high-intensity sports, this watch is powered by the Breitling Calibre 82, a heat-compensated Super Quartz Observatory-certified movement. Chronograph times are 1/10 of a second and 30 minutes.
Doxa Divingstar Sub 300T
Swiss watch brand Doxa launched the first Sub 300T (Conquistador) diver’s watch more than 50 years ago in 1969. Watches with helium release valves quickly became fan favorites and have continued to evolve over the decades. This Sub 300T Divingstar pays homage to the original. The three-hand watch is made of stainless steel with an anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal. The watch can withstand pressures up to 120 bar (1200 meters) and features a patented unidirectional rotating bezel with a no-decompression dive time calculator. Super-LumiNova makes underwater reading easy. This watch is powered by an automatic ETA movement.
Nomos Glashütte Club Campus 38 Pride
This year, brand Nomos Glashütte, no stranger to color, teamed up with Cool Hunting to create a colorful limited-edition mechanical watch in support of the global LGBTQ community. The result is six different watch dial colors representing the rainbow. The Club Campus 38 Pride Yellow Sunshine Edition is a limited edition of only 22 pieces of each color. The yellow version represents sunlight, while the other colors represent tranquility, spirituality, life, nature and healing. All watches have a diameter of 38.5 mm and are powered by the German brand’s Alpha manual-winding movement. Water resistant to 100 meters and comes with a woven fabric strap.
Carl F. Bucherer TravelTec Color Edition Four Seasons
Swiss watch brand Carl F. Bucherer offers a variety of top-of-the-line colors for its sports TravelTec Four Seasons collection, including yellow for the summer sun. TravelTec is a chronograph and a certified chronometer. On top of that, it offers time and date indication in three zones – making it a powerful timepiece. Paired with a yellow dial and a striking yellow rubber strap, this watch performs well. Equipped with an automatic movement, this stainless steel watch offers a 42-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 50 meters.
Bovet 1822 Recital 26 Brainstorm® Chapter 2 Sunshine
New for BOVET 1822 this year is a striking yellow Haute Horlogerie: the Recital 26 Brainstorm® Chapter Two Sunshine. One look at the watch’s inline dial and strap makes the name obvious. Limited to seven pieces, this watch is designed to evoke the warmth and beauty of the sun. The fully hand-engraved movement is visible inside the transparent monolithic sapphire writing gradient case – modeled after an old school desk. In the dark, the domed yellow dial turns green thanks to the Super-LumiNova® coating. Equipped with a patented double-sided flying tourbillon, patented three-dimensional V-shaped hands, this complication watch allows the wearer to display the time zone of their choice, the moon phase indication for both hemispheres and the world time indication.
These six watches are a good example of the power of color, especially yellow, and the trendsetting power of the best replica watches industry.
