Top Watch Trends for 2015 as Seen at BaselWorld — Part 1

BaselWorld, the largest international watch and jewelry exhibition on the planet, has come to a close. This year, BaselWorld 2015, saw the unveiling of a host of incredible new watches in every price segment and across all watch categories.

Many of the watch brands we carry were there to show their newest innovations — in some cases, watches that were years in the making. While most of these timepieces won’t make their way to stores until late summer and fall, they are exciting to talk about and show. And in the coming week, we will bring a few of the new unveilings to light.

Meanwhile, we want to highlight a few of the top trends seen in BaselWorld that will dictate what’s on the wrist in the coming year. Here's Part 1 of our two-part report.

Color It Blue

Watches this year continue to sport some exciting colors for both men and women. First and foremost is blue. Practically every watch brand in Basel — from the small to the large — had blue-dialed watches in its stable for both men and women. We saw dark and royal blues for either gender, as well as a pale sky blue for women. Green also comes on strong this year in a host of shades that run the gamut from muted army green to rich grass green. For women, violet, purple, lavender and pink steal the limelight — complementing the host of muted hues of taupe, tan, gray and white.

Open-Worked Elegance

Skeleton watches — where the majority of the watch components are carved away to reveal a multi-dimensional interplay of gears, wheels and other parts — are all the rage this year. Additionally, watches with apertures to show a part of the movement, and watches with their mainplates showing through instead of having a dial are also making a big splash on the scene — in timepieces from a few thousand dollars on up to $1 million. Skeletonizing a watch is no easy feat. Some watch brands do it using machined parts cut as tiny as possible; others at the luxury end of the market do it by hand — finishing and engraving every single visible and non-visible part. In both cases, the result is an intriguing look inside the workings of the watch.

Sports Savvy

Sports watches continue to be important, as well, with more brands delivering unusual chronograph renditions across the board. Within the sport watch category the three most prevalent themes are watches inspired by cars (most with chronographs and tachymeter bezels), watches designed to weather the elements of dive and water sports, and pilot watches – often with additional features built in.
