Wristwatches range in design, function and price. The endless selection provides an abundance of options for choosing the perfect gift for that special someone. For those looking for that perfect timekeeping device, here is a list of the top trends this Christmas:

1. Niche Brands

Most watches purchased are made by big, well-known brand companies that everyone is familiar with. They have a wide selection of functional jewelry to suit every style, taste, need, and price range.

Niche Brands are usually designed by independent, smaller companies. They have one or few designs and limited pricing options. Niche watches are hot because their design is very unique; they are completely different from other accessories being sold on the market.

2. Limited Editions

Companies often create limited edition brands to celebrate an anniversary, or milestone. There are only a few wristwatches made so anyone who buys one belongs to a small, select group.

3. Smart Watches

Smart Watches are the most contemporary and sophisticated time piece on the market. These wrist computers have all the same features of a computer, in a much smaller face wrapped around the wrist. Some smart watches even have phone features for an all-in-one watch/computer/phone accessory.

Those who own a smart watch can do almost everything through their wrist accessory that they can do on their handheld device.

4. Retro Watches

Everything that is old is new again and the 80’s fashion style is still popular with today’s millennials. Retro designed watches have large, bold time faces and use large hand, small hand, and a faster second’s hand to tell the time. The three hands rotate clockwise around the 12 numbers.

Strap were typically made from leather or rubber and were black, brown, or bold coloured. This classic style of jewelry is attractive and compliments any formal, casual, or business attire.

5. Sports Watches

Sports watches are popular with active adults who prefer a multifunctional, digital time piece for their day-to-day activities. Fitness themed wristwatches are multifunctional accessories that act as a clock and an exercise tracker.
