Watches for summer – HKWF’s recommendations

It is summertime again. In August, you can expect the weather to be very hot every day. You can expect sunshine, sweat and rain. You can also expect high humidity. So, when choosing your watches for summer, you should focus on colors, durability and lightness. Here is our guide to summer watches.


1.      Rolex Yacht master II

The Rolex Yacht Master II has not been a very popular watch because of its seemingly obsolete functions and the price. It is the most expensive stainless steel Rolex model.

However, when thinking of summer, you think of watersports. The Yacht Master II is perfect for yachting as well as other watersports. The color ways of the watch is also perfect for summer – a white dial with a blue ceramic bezel. With polished center links of the bracelet, the watch is absolutely one of the catchiest watches for beach goers.


2.      Rolex Day-Date gem stone dials

A Rolex Day-Date in yellow gold is always a good summer
watch especially when it is paired with gem stone dials. One
of the best that we would recommend is the Day-Date with
an orange coral dial. Green bloodstone and Lapis Lazuli dials
are also very sharp-looking for summer. These are the
choice of some of the people who likes rare Rolex Gem
stone dial. *1.
The best thing about these dials is that each of them is unique and no two of them are the same. They have their own unique patterns and it makes your watch very exclusive to yourself.
The new Day-Date 40 green dial version is also on top of our list. However, if you want something more special, do hunt for these Day-Dates with gem stone dials.

3.      Audemars Piguet Diver Chronograph

Speaking of colors and durability, you can expect nothing less from the 2016 AP Diver Chronograph. Coming in yellow, orange, blue and green, they are some of the best summer watches you can get.
Worn on a thick rubber strap, these Diver Chronographs are best for watersports. As colorful as they are, the 42mm watch features ceramic chronograph pushers and crown. The movement can be seen through a display case back. The well-decorated solid gold rotor can be viewed. Whether you dive with this watch or not, the AP Diver Chronograph makes one of the best summer watches.

4.  Audemars Piguet Ceramic Diver and Forged Carbon Diver


Think that the Diver Chronograph is not light enough? You can always go for the AP Ceramic Diver or the Diver Forged Carbon. They have simpler functions and on the ceramic diver, a stunning movement that can be viewed through the case back. You will not easily scratch your watch when doing any kinds of sports as well. The Forged Carbon Diver gives you more layers of texture with its case made of forged carbon and its bezel ceramic.

5.   G-Shocks (Frogman, Rangeman…or doorman?)

Any G-shocks can be very good summer watches as they are extremely durable, light and colorful. One of the watches that can impress is this Rangeman released in June.

The yellow version is also very sharp for summer. G-shocks are of low cost and very good for summer when you wear a t-shirt and shorts. You can basically feel easy when doing anything with them without worrying about scratching your watch. It is an important thing in summer especially when you sweat.

For those who has more budget and does not want to see the same watch in the gathering, or at beaches... Try to find these Frogman G-shock.
