Trend alert: All-black watches
Every now and again, a new wristwatch trend emerges. This time, it was an old drift that came back into style
1. Hublot Big Bang Broderie: Hublot’s “All Black” concept was first created in 2006 as a step outside traditional watch design. This piece from the Big Bang collection uses black diamonds, embroidery, and ceramic. 2. Chanel J12 Intense Black: As per its name, Chanel’s high-tech ceramic and steel watch is an intense black model. Everything from the dial to the numerals is black. 3. Hublot Big Bang Caviar Black: We couldn’t resist adding another Hublot entry to our list. After all, black looks so good on its watches and this piece is from the Caviar collection. 4. Gucci g-chrono PVD watch: If there ever was a men’s fashion brand who could do watches as good as it does clothes, it’s Gucci. With a dial frame shaped like the brand’s initial, this sapphire crystal piece is a 10 on our grading scale. We love the pop of green and red Gucci logo colours. 5. Breitling Avenger Blackbird: Black titanium case, self-winding mechanical movement, 300 meters water resistant, military strap. Need we say more? 6. Carrera Cara Delevingne by Tag Heuer: Supermodel and actress Cara Delevingne collaborated with Tag Heuer and we love the result. The piece is diamond set with sapphire glass. 7. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept: The Laptimer concept was created by racing legend Michael Schumacher in 2010. It is one of the brand’s most popular pieces until today. And guess what? It’s all-black.
