When we say Las Vegas Shows, we aren't thinking Blue Man Group. Sorry. We are thinking watches. Well, being that we are a watch retailer, it may not surprise you that our thoughts are watches and jewelry — but in Vegas? Yes, in Vegas.
In fact, beginning today and spanning through June 1, several of the most important U.S. watch and jewelry shows are taking place throughout the city. While we already witnessed the high-horology trends of SIHH earlier this year, and the all-encompassing global trends of BaselWorld 2015, there may still be some interesting items coming our way.
What do we expect to see? Three important C's — no not diamond C's — but the C's of watches.
Color: Especially gray, violet and taupe for women, and blue and black with pops of color for men. Cut: Not all watches are round. This year we are expecting some great pieces in cushion shapes, rectangulars, a few tonneau (barrel) and even a few totally-out-there space-like cases. Clarity: We expect watch brands to be paring down their collections and offering us less breadth and more solid substance in terms of form and function. We will let you know how our predictions pan out.
