All About Pink Watches
If you are in the market for a pink watch, you are in luck. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of pink watches in production today. From fun toy watches for children to expensive diamond watches, and everything in between, you should have no trouble finding a watch that perfectly meets your needs and preferences.
Here are a few different categories of pink watch styles that you are likely to find when you begin your search:
- Children’s watches. Since pink is such a popular color with little girls, this category is an obvious one. Many of these watches have soft plastic bands with easy to clasp buckles. They often feature bright bold colors and shapes. Many bear the likeness of cartoon characters, popular kids’ musicians, and other popular children’s icons. These are the most affordable of all pink watches, because they are small and generally made from cheap materials that are made to last not much longer than the child’s interest in that character (which, we all know, is generally no more than a year or two).
- Classic pink watches. There are many pink watches for adults that are designed in a classic style, with a subtle freshening through pink accents, pink face backings, etc. These are often predominantly silver and feature a more subtle shade of pink. They are made to be worn as every day watches, feature quality time pieces, and are sophisticated enough to wear in a professional setting.
- Designer watches. A step up from classic pink watches, there are many on the market that are crafted by high end jewelers. These may have diamonds, gold, or any other number of fine materials. Often quite expensive (as much as $1,300), these are made more for fashion than function and should be worn carefully.
- Sport watches. There are dozens of pink sport watches made for running and general exercise. Many are waterproof and boast features like stop watch timing, GPS function, heart rate monitors, and even cell phone pouches and flashlights.
- Phone watches. Technology has advanced a lot from the days when calculator watches were the coolest thing around. Now you can get watch phones and they even come in pink.
No matter which pink watch style you like, you’re sure to have plenty of selection. There’s no need to settle for something other than your ideal watch, because there are so many options before you.
Top Five Pink Watches On The Market
Pink watches are increasingly popular, probably because they incorporate a different sort of style into the realm of time pieces. It has been too long that watches are plain and often quite masculine. We have great amounts of selection when it comes to everything else that we wear. Fortunately, some of the leading manufacturers have put out some excellent pink watches in the past few years. So if that’s what you’re looking for, you finally have access to it (and plenty of selection to boot!)
Here are five of the top watches on the market, each of which is a little bit different:
- Dakota: Versa Pack Watch in pink. This multi-functional wristband is not just a watch. It is built ruggedly to handle some wear and tear. It has a built in flashlight, a small collapsible pen, and a pocket for a cell phone behind the watch itself. It’s great for runners who want their phone on the trail but don’t want to hold it in their hand. ($26)
- Relic: Women’s Pink Watch. This is simple, incorporating the matches-everything classic style of a silver band with a light pink watch face surrounded by small accent crystals. It’s a great blend of classic style with personal flair. ($48)
- K&BROS: Ice-Time Pink Watch. A perfect in between of the above watches, this is a more classic design that the Dakota, but still sporty details. A sturdy silver band with a bit bolder pink than the Relic watch, featuring a rotating dial, simplistic face, and nice detailing on the second and hour hands. ($80)
- Armitron: Now Women’s Pink Watch. This takes style and elegance on, and does it well. A pink mother of pearl dial and Swarovski crystals encased in a silver brass case with an elegant linked wristband. This is simpler and more petite that the other models, very feminine and matches many different styles. ($41)
- Appetime: Sweet Pips Chronograph Watch. Feminine and funky, this watch features a light pink band, gold face rim, and face with playful pink bubbles for number markers. High class yet artsy. ($80)
Top Ten Reasons To Buy A Pink Watch
If you are looking for a new watch for yourself, your child, or as a gift for someone who appreciates the color pink, then a pink wrist watch could very well be the way to go. It’s not as traditional as silver, but that can be a good thing. Here are 10 reasons to buy a pink watch.
- Tasteful. Pink watches come in light colors that work well with a variety of wardrobes and hues.
- Stylish. Adding a hint of color in a wrist watch is a great way of adding personality and style through detail. It adds subtle class and character to almost any outfit.
- Versatile. A good shade of pink blends with almost any color family, making your pink watch a reliable time piece for both personal and professional situations and wardrobes.
- Unique. Incorporating pink through a pink faced watch or a bold pink band lets you add something that other people don’t have, as boldly or as subtly as you prefer.
- Options. Many pink watches come with interchangeable bands that let you change the appearance of the watch based on your outfit. Why commit to one style when you can have several?
- Youthful. Pink is often a lighthearted color associated with youth. What better way to freshen up your image in a sophisticated way than adding a touch of tasteful, youthful, pink?
- Very youthful. Of course, some pink watches are meant for children. There’s nothing a young girl loves more than a fun pink watch with her favorite cartoon character on it!
- Sports. Pink watches aren’t just for kids anymore. Many grown women love pink, and being athletic doesn’t mean you have to wear a bulky black sports watch. Pink sports watches are functional and fashionable!
- Professional. Work clothing doesn’t need to be bland clothing. A watch with a silver band and frame and a light pink face is professional yet personal at the same time.
- Fun. Pink is an upbeat color. What better way to keep a smile on your face than with a bit of cheer every time you check your pink watch?
Your Dream Pink Watch: How To Choose The Right Watch For You
There are hundreds and thousands of watches for sale on the market today. You might think that if you are narrowing your search to just pink watches, then your decision would be easier. Not so! There are so many different pink watches made, that you have full selection all the same. Not all pink watches are created equally, so shop around to find the perfect watch for your needs. If you are buying a pink watch for yourself or for someone as a gift, here are some questions to ask yourself to help narrow down your search. Soon enough, you will be able to hone in on the perfect watch for the wearer.
- When and where will the pink watch be worn? – This is an important question because the general style you choose depends largely on the purpose. Is this a watch for professional attire, to be worn in the workplace? Is it going to be worn during exercise or athletic and outdoor activity? Is it for a young child who wants a watch as a toy? Is it for elegant, sophisticated occasions and meant more as a jewelry piece than a functional tool? Narrowing yourself down to either children’s’, sports, jewelry, or classic pink watches is a great first step.
- Digital or Analog? – Another important selection. This has less to do with color and more to do with preference. Sport watches will almost all be digital, and jewelry watches will almost all be analog. But many of the classic, every day yet professional pink watches in the middle will offer both.
- What’s your budget? How much you spend on a pink watch can vary. Of course the bejeweled watches can cost a lot, and kids’ watches cost very little. But in between, your budget will affect the level of quality you can get. Often, spending even $50 more on a watch means you can get a much better timepiece that will last a long time if well cared for. For most people, spending $100-$200 will get a good quality watch that should last for a number of years.
How Much Should I Pay For a Pink Watch?
How much you pay for a pink watch really depends on what you are looking for. If you are on a budget, then have in mind some of the qualities you are looking for, then explore to see what best meets your needs within your budget. If the qualities themselves are what you are concerned with and your budget is flexible, then look around to see the choices you have and really pick the best watch for you before spending the money.
On the low end of pricing you will find children’s watches. Pink watches designed especially for young girls are plentiful and easy to find. If you have a young girl who likes certain characters, you can find pink watches featuring the likeness of Winnie the Pooh, Dora the Explorer, Hannah Montana, Sponge Bob, High School Musical, and any number of future sports stars. Girls’ watches cost anywhere from $5-$50, but not usually much higher since kids tend to outgrow these things in a year or two.
Adult women’s pink watches, on the other hand, can cost a lot more, and you can actually spend anywhere from $15 to $1,300. Of course, this is quite a big span, and the quality that you get runs a whole gamut as well.
The low end of the price scale, $15-$40, will give you decent watches that aren’t made with quite as high of material and may not have the most long-lasting, quality constructed time pieces. These are great if you’re on a budget and don’t require precision down to the second, or especially if you are going on vacation and anticipate losing or damaging your watch.
For most people, the $50-$250 range is a good place to find a quality every day watch. Classic in style, durable in construction, and often with reputable time pieces, this is probably the most popular price range.
Once you get to several hundred dollars and higher, you’re paying for higher quality. Sometimes it’s the name and reputation, (like Rolex), and other times you’re getting diamonds and crystals and gold. These are more fashionable and probably are not smart to wear every day when they may be damaged.
