For a laid-back summer as you drive down the scenic coastal roads or dance the night away at summer soirees, we’ve compiled four watches for men and women in silvers and blues. Be it a dressy or a casual timepiece, there’s something for every occasion in our list.
Breitling still flies high among aviation watches now with limited-edition Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition. With its three time-zone displays, simply pull out the crown and turn it either way to change the main-hour hands to local time in 1-hour increments; the red-tipped hand will keep the home time in 24-hour mode. The ultra-hard ceramic rotating bezel shows another time on a 24-hour scale, which, coupled with water-resistance to 100metre, completes a tough utility watch.

With only 6.8mm thickness and 27mm diameter, Montblanc’s slim Bohème Date is also sleek with silvery-white guilloche dial simply paired with black Arabic numerals and minute markings. Leaf-shaped steel hands and a date indication on the sixth hour add just the right amount of cool elegance to the faceted dial. On the other hand, black alligator-skin strap and anti-reflexive domed sapphire crystal round up the watch as a classic yet distinctive piece.
Soft rounded curves, a silky satin strap and a shimmering lapis lazuli face define yet another Italian beauty by Bulgari in the Diva’s Dream collection. Time in this 37mm white-gold watch is shown through a jumping-hour display at 6 o’clock, while a retrograde system on the dial shows minutes as marked by seven diamonds. Seventy-two more brilliant-cut diamonds circle the watch, plus a sapphire cabochon topping off the white-gold crown.
Vacheron Constantin’s sport line, the Overseas, now comes in a pair of white and rose gold. The rose gold here is used on the bezel, hands, crown, hour markers, and the date display at 3 o’clock. The case back displays the complications along with a precious 22-carat gold oscillating weight. What’s more, the 41mm watch has a stainless steel bracelet with an easy-fitting system and two more straps in brown rubber and leather.
