Wrist watch designs are changing with the times, proving that telling time can be as hip and elegant as other fashion trends. An emerging trend in the wristwatch market is the use of non-traditional metals, specifically iron, bronze and copper. While many watches aren’t actually made of these metals, they are designed to look like they are. Traditional gold and silver watches aren’t disappearing, but bronze colors are being used more and more by popular watch designers like Fossil and DKNY. The result is a look that is sleek, modern and classic.
