Watch Trends 2024: Timepiece Revolution Unveiled In The Era Of Innovation And Style

In this Article


In 2023, the watch industry experienced significant changes that affected both global markets. There were many exciting new releases, collaborations, exhibitions, and auctions, attracting the attention of collectors and fashion lovers. In light of these changes, experts predict that in 2024, key trends in watch fashion will remain stable. Still, designers intend to enrich them with several new looks and fresh ideas, giving the industry a more inspired and dynamic character. Read more about everything in our latest article.

Square Shape

A watch with a square shape is the hit of the 2024 season. The square shape, designed in a modern design, gives a new shade to the usual classic and, therefore, a little boring and austere models. This is the true embodiment of 21st-century elegance.

Square watches are a timeless and versatile option that goes well with both a business office suit and an evening outfit. It can be assumed that the trend will be models in a business and classic style in general – but we can say for sure only after a few months and a couple of fresh releases from leading watch houses.

Bright Dial

2023 has been a strong year for color watches, which have been firmly at the forefront for several years now – think Rolex, TAG Heuer, and Hermes have released some of the best colorful watches this year. Experts are confident that this trend will continue to be relevant in 2024 – according to them, a watch with a colored dial is a great way to impress others with just one small detail. A miniature accessory – but what an effective way to show your individuality!

In 2024, absolutely all bright colors of the palette will be in trend – from fiery red to pink – the range is limitless. The combination of a colorful dial, a small case with classic lines, and a minimum of decor will be incredibly trendy – consider this.


In previous years, massive watches with complex designs have gained tremendous popularity – a great way to brighten up a gray office suit and add some zest to your look. However, experts believe that this year will be the year of minimalism and conciseness.

The trend will be watches with “clean” and simple lines and minimal decoration. They are versatile and elegant, capable of adding quiet elegance and luxury to your look. Such accessories do not shout about themselves, but they definitely attract attention.

By the way, this is especially true for case sizes – miniature watches and even sports models with non-standard small cases – from 36 to 39 mm – will be at the height of fashion.


The popularity of smartwatches is steadily growing every year. Now, thanks to their synchronization with other smart devices, such as phones and fitness trackers, they are chosen by more and more buyers. Smartwatches are not just devices for tracking time. They help monitor health, keep in touch via instant messengers, and store important documents, so it is not surprising that in 2024, there will only be more such models.

Cooperation And Collaboration

There was no shortage of watch collaborations in 2023: the joint releases of Audemar Piguet x Cactus Jack, Swatch x Blancpain, and IWC x Lewis Hamilton made a lot of noise, to name a few. Customers highly appreciated the new items – therefore, according to experts, watch brands will continue to actively “hype” through joint releases of giant companies and collaborations with celebrities.

Bonus: The Most Anticipated Exhibitions And Anniversaries

The global trade fair Watches & Wonders, which moves the entire watch world, will occur in Geneva in 2024 from 9 to 15 April. Its exhibiting brands already include 55 of the world’s leading companies, and in 2024, according to rumors, six new brands will join them, including Bremont, Eberhard & Co., Gerald Charles, Nomos Glashütte, Norqain and Raymond Weil. By the way, Breitling and Bulgari are also planning to join the exhibition, meaning that the 2024 event will be one of the largest in the history of Watches & Wonders.

In addition, 2024 will be an important event for established watch brands with a long history – for example, in January, Piaget will celebrate its 150th anniversary, Bulgari will celebrate its 140th anniversary, and Rolex will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the iconic GMT-Master II.
