5 Frightfully Fabulous Black Watches | The Watch Hut
Whether you're a fair-weather horror fan or embrace your inner goth 365 days per year, Halloween is the perfect time to invest in that black watch you've always had your eye on but never had an excuse to buy.
Black watches, available for men, women, and in unisex designs, can be ultra-modern or vintage-inspired; all black from the strap to the dial, or include other flattering colours for additional depth.
What they all have in common is that they're ideal for wearing now that the weather is turning cold, the evenings are dark, and All Hallows Eve is just around the corner.
Spooky vintage After Dark watch
Olivia Burton has dominated the vintage-inspired wristwear market, and the After Dark ladies' watch (£92) takes inspiration from the English countryside and gives it a Victorian gothic spin.
The red and purple colouring adds elegant shading to the otherwise uniformly black watch. The square face creates a picture frame effect for a quirky spin, while the leather strap will suit anyone who loves classical style.
Contemporary All Black watch
From the vegan friendly faux leather strap to the deep black dial, this Votch ladies All Black watch (£135) is a beautiful modern timepiece that looks elegant, sleek, and a little bit spooky.
The ion-plated steel material used throughout adds texture to ensure you can still read the time easily, and the uncomplicated face design contributes towards a contemporary androgynous finish.
Film noir Nixon watch
Do you love the works of horror masters, like Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick? Take inspiration with a film noir inspired men's Nixon The Clutch watch (£180), which features white indicators against a jet black background.
The shapes and lines used on the face hark back to cinema's silver screen, but the whole ensemble is brought straight back to today thanks to the black metal bracelet which is a modern spin on this otherwise vintage-inspired watch.
It's a piece that breaks enough watch face rules to blend with a casual ensemble, while its muted palette wouldn't look out of place in the boardroom as a subtle nod to October 31st.
Look into the light… watch
For a Halloween-appropriate watch that would also look great with a suit, the men's French Connection watch (£55) is a traditional, masculine timepiece that's timelessly stylish.
The spooky spin comes from the white spotlight effect on the face, which serves as a startling contrast between the otherwise all black design. A ghostly centrepiece to add a personal spin to your business attire.
Blood red watch
What's Halloween without a little (fake) blood? The unisex Nixon The Sentry watch (£170) adds a ghastly splash of crimson to the face to create a colourful timepiece that looks stylish for men and women.
The stripy second hand harks back to Tim Burton's classic Beetlejuice, while the metallic strap keeps things modern and fresh for a great piece of streetwear.
Black watches look great all year round, but especially during Halloween. Explore all new black watches, perfect for daywear, nightwear, and as part of your spooky costume party.
