There is no faulting these primary choices as they deliver a fitting contrast, especially when it comes to classic editions. However brands today have begun injecting more colours into their designs resulting in sophisticated timepieces that are bright, bold and immensely creative.

Here are some glowing and radiant choices that will add a welcome dash of colour to your wrist.

Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase

The addition of yellow, apple green, turquoise and red has given the Elite collection a breath of fresh air, improving the aesthetic value of what was already a great looking timepiece. Fashionably chic, these new additions have enhanced the appeal of the Elite Lady Moonphase and complemented its 33mm stainless steel design with diamond-set bezel extremely well. Beneath the mother-of-pearl dial and star-studded moon disc is an ultra-thin automatic Elite Calibre 692 movement, which powers the hours, minutes, small seconds and moon phases, an exquisitely fine mechanism for a truly iconic and, now, colourful timepiece.

Cartier Tank Cintrée

There’s no mistaking the Tank Cintrée, especially with its distinctive and unique curved appearance, which has largely gone unchanged. But this year, Cartier has up the ante by giving its classic model a rather fitting and highly glamorous treatment. The arrival of platinum, pink gold and yellow gold cases have given the Tank Cintrée an added dimension, but not at the risk of losing the model’s vintage appeal. The 46.3mm x 23mm timepiece is equipped with a manually-wound slim movement, which fits snugly in the 7.2mm-thick case and is secured with strap choices that include grey alligator for the platinum and pink gold models and brown alligator strap for the yellow gold.

Ulysse Nardin Jade Jellyfish

The Jade was launched by Ulysse Nardin several years ago, and it immediately gained prominence for its innovative UN-310 caliber and crown design. But just a few years later, the model is once again on the radar of watch fans thanks to a welcome inspiration from one of the world’s most unique marine creatures. The Jade Jellyfish offers a blend of style as well as substance with the addition of a new marine-inspired motif done entirely in enamel.  The beautifully decorated dial merges effortlessly with the 18ct white gold case and bezel set with 114 diamonds as well as its white leather strap.

Baume & Mercier Petite Promesse

With its wrap around strap and diamond set bezel and mother-of-pearl dial, the Petite Promesse is certainly a statement maker and a timepiece befitting a modern woman. The 22mm quartz powered timepiece is also equipped with rhodium-plated hands and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

Available in orange and blue leathers, these coloured additions to the Petite Promesse helps inject an element of fun towards this alluring feminine timepiece.

Rado True Thinline Nature Collection

Taking inspiration from the elements of earth, water and greens, Rado has produced these highly-decorative and stunning 33mm pieces. The True Thinline Nature Collection consists of three models, all featuring high-tech ceramics and a super slim quartz movement. But what makes the collection truly special is its subtle use of earthy tones inspired by elements of the natural world. Choose from a water or leaf inspired motif made from a blue mother-of-pearl dial or opt for earth, which arrives with a metallised coating that reflects light beautifully. Each timepiece arrives with an integrated ceramic bracelet with matching colours.
