Start the season right with these vibrantly hued timepieces guaranteed to keep you on trend – and in style.

Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore Diver

The maison’s signature tapisserie dial pattern has been jazzed up with an attractive hue of turquoise, appropriately evoking fantasies of an island holiday somewhere. Turquoise also adorns the screw-locked crowns, the rotating inner bezel as well as the rubber strap, joining the corals and fishes in a lovely parade of colours underwater.

Corum’s Admiral 45 Squelette

As if the skeletonised dial and rotating date disc with large Arabic numerals aren’t striking enough, Corum has gone and emboldened the watch model with a slew of eye-popping colours, including this delicious shade of yellow. Standing out the most are the date numerals, which are neither painted nor engraved on the sapphire discs. Instead, they are individually blanked via precise electronic machining.

Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Sapphire

Blocks of red sapphire, machined and cut with Swiss precision, were used to put together the case middle, bezel and back. Treated with anti-reflective, the case material offers a level of transparency not found in most case materials, which makes it easy to admire the heartbeat within.

Chopard’s Happy Sport Oval

As the Happy Sport celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the maison revives the oval shape, only this time with the bezel slimmer at ‘12’ and ‘6’, and wider at ‘3’ and ‘9’, for better distinction. Contributing to its wow factor are the pink sapphires and rubies on the bezel and on the dial, the latter also includes two moving diamonds. An alligator strap in fuchsia completes this ultra-feminine timepiece.

H. Moser & Cie.’s Pioneer Centre Seconds

With simple hour indexes, skeletonised hands with Superluminova tips, a solid steel case and a black fabric strap, the Pioneer Centre is unquestionably minimalist but what elevates it to chic is the cosmic green fume dial. On the wrist, it looks as if you were wearing a piece of emerald.

Longines’ Elegant Collection

A perfectly round case as well as slim indexes and rhodium-plated hands combined to give this watch  that timeless appeal. But it has also been given that contemporary touch of blue - the colour dresses up the sunray dial and the alligator strap. And in a testament to the colour’s allure to both genders, the watch is available in sizes for men and women.
