White. A color that offers coolness, freshness, simplicity, elegance and many more. In these days where the hot weather kicks in, we picked the best white watches for every budget.
The list includes models from every level of horology. The common feature of those models, which varies from timepieces that are manufactured with cutting edge technologies and spectacular craftsmanship to seasonal accessories, is their eye-catching white cases that will add a distinctive elegance to your bronze tan!
The Royal Oak Offshore Grande Complication from the well-established Swiss brand Audemars Piguet, is one of the most important models of our list with its hi-tech white ceramic case as well as its various complications from minute repeater to perpetual calendar and chronograph. Of course, the best complement to the 44mm x 15.4mm case and bezel is the rubber strap manufactured in matching white tone. The model that should be kept away from water with its 20 meters water resistance rating, compensates this situation with its complications. Self-winding movement that beats at a frequency of 19.800vph and offers a power reserve of 45 hours is composed of 648 individual parts (52 jewels). The model that is equipped with titanium winding crown, chronograph pushers and folding clasp is available with a MSRP of $ 725,000.
The model, which is one of the limited edition models that were exclusive to 2018, comes in a white ATZ ceramic and TPT carbon case measuring 44.5mm x 49.94mm x 16.15mm. At the heart of the watch, which is decorated with green details dedicated to Le Mans races, is the Caliber RM11 with annual calendar and flyback chronograph complications. The movement that beats at a frequency of 28800vph and offers a power reserve of 50 hours has 68 jewels. The model is water resistant to 50 meters and is equipped with a matching white rubber strap and a titanium folding clasp. I’m sure that a limited edition of only 150 pieces Richard Mille timepiece, will be meaning much more to its user than other watches. In order to have this watch, you need a budget of approximately $ 200,000.
The model that will mark the summer of 2018 comes from the Hublot Big Bang Collection among the absolute leaders of the luxury sports watch segment, with a white ceramic case measuring 45mm and water resistant to 100 meters that makes the model our list’s most water resistant timepiece. The white ceramic bezel, which is fixed to the case with the brand’s signature six H shaped screws, offers a bold and durable look. The rubber strap that is produced in matching black and white tones is secured by a titanium folding clasp. The model is powered by the manufacture Caliber HUB1242. 330 parts self-winding movement bears flyback chronograph feature and offers an efficient power reserve of 72 hours. The cost of having this special model is about CHF 22,500.
The white member of the Omega’s successful Speedmaster ceramic model family, "White Side Of The Moon" is refreshing us with its 44.25mm case and white leather strap. The model, which looks more convenient to use in summer nights rather than beaches with its 50 meters water resistance and leather strap, is powered by a manufacture movement that is equipped with chronograph and date functions. Caliber 9300, which offers a power reserve of 60 hours, is both a sporty and an elegant movement with its Bi-Compax chronograph lay out. It is possible to create bold looking combinations with Omega’s NATO straps in different colors with the model featuring white ceramic bezel and chronograph pushers. Omega Speedmaster MoonWatch "White Side Of The Moon" is available for 48,400 TL at authorized retailers and Omega boutiques.
For those who want to go shopping for watches with low budget, Swatch is still one of the best brands to go for. With its white case measuring 41mm x 9.85mm and quartz movement, the Swatch White Rebel can be yours for only 220TL. Well, it doesn’t come in a hi-tech case. It is not powered by an automatic grand complication caliber either. But none of those will prevent you to enjoy the summer with a white watch.
