White-Hot: the Best White Timepieces
You can’t fight it: these pieces are white-hot! This year a number of manufactures unveiled white watches, which was a pleasant surprise considering that even five years ago, there was a dearth of white timepieces.
According to the brands, the reaction from customers has already been very strong, and we look forward to seeing this trend develop in the years to come.
In the meantime, here are our favorite new white-hot watches:

This timepiece is completed by two interchangeable straps, in red or black Schedoni leather stitched onto black rubber, with a quick-change system inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism.
