Anyone for tennis? A sporty white watch is this summer's must-have...
Chanel’s iconic J12 was first created in 2000 with a black high-tech ceramic strap. In 2003, a white version followed, gaining instant cult status. Ten years later, Rado continued to wave the white flag and developed the world’s first touch watch (just a swipe of the finger changes the time).
White is the colour of summer and an easy way to update your look when the sun shines is to switch up your arm candy to a white strapped version and show off that tan. We’ve selected the best sports influenced white watches for the summer and a checklist of what to look for…
Do you wear gold or silver jewellery more? The best watch for you will have metal hardware that suits what you normally wear but don’t be afraid to clash and mix up your metals if that’s your thing. The key to mixing is to make sure you have more than four pieces of jewellery (this way it looks purposeful and doesn’t look like a mistake).
Got a tricky complexion or buying as a gift? You can’t go wrong with rose gold, which suits every skin tone.
Are you active? Best invest in a version that is shock proof to cope with the demands of playing sports.
Layer up – look to your watch as an extension of your jewellery wardrobe and layer bracelets around it.
