The Summer Blues

10 Blue Watches for a Red-Hot Summer

July 21, 2015 Buying Guides By

The color blue is enjoying its moment in the horological sun. And for good reason. Blue is equally casual and elegant, providing a nice alternative to the usual black- or white-dialed watches seen on most wrists. Blue also pairs well across a wardrobe, from boat shoes to wingtips, with a black or brown strap or a NATO. Blue also conjures up both the sky and the sea, making it the perfect color for a summer watch. Here are 10 to tempt you before fall arrives.
