5 Bright and Bold Watches

This season, bold brights have taken over and put basic black in the corner to sulk (at least until November). And while most of us rely on our phone to tell the time, I've been taking it back to 1996 and actually donning a watch, partly as an excuse to wear a shock of color on my wrist. Casio Multi-Function Sport Watch, Amazon ($24). This one touts a dual analog-digital display for you indecisive time-tellers, and is water resistant (wear it to the beach!). Also, check it out in hot pink.

In Good Time Watch in Blue, ModCloth ($24). A square digital face tells the date, with the extra functionality of an alarm and stopwatch. Take that, iPhone. The Dash, Nixon ($90). A sleek design with huge digital numbers makes this number from Nixon seem very Jetsons. Will you get it in orange? Electric blue? Yellow? Consult your Magic 8 Ball.

Orange Mini Stella Expansion Dial Watch, Fossil ($75). In need of something more lady-like? This one has a stainless steel band and a sparkly bezel.

Color Codes, Swatch ($50). Oh, Swatch. How I love thee. This collection comes in every color in the rainbow. Now, I just need matching Swatch guards.
