Sure, Halloween may be cancelled this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate in your own way. Whatever you’re getting dressed up as, no seasonal ensemble is complete without a pumpkin-orange watch, which (unlike that Joe Exotic costume) is going to look just as good on November 1st and beyond.
Breitling Endurance Pro
Sure, it isn’t the most orange piece in the Breitling lineup (that honour goes to this carotene-infused Superocean) but the Endurance pro scores on newness as well as its colour coordinated bezel/strap combination. Powered by a super-accurate quartz movement, you can use this chronograph to time your turkey and your post-holiday sprints.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36
Who says Rolex doesn’t know how to have fun? Among this fall’s new additions to the Oyster Perpetual 36 family is this bold, jaunty coral red dial. While it’s only available in the 36mm model, it makes enough of a statement on your wrist to make up the difference in case size.
It’s the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Wait, no, it’s something even better: the Seiko5 Sports. With its classic diver details, Japanese automatic movement and 100m water resistance, this is a watch that will look just as good at the dive shop as your next office Halloween party (whenever that is.)
Rado Les Couleurs Le Corbusier “Powerful Orange”
The French designer, architect and colour theorist Le Corbusier wasn’t a super flashy guy, but he would have almost certainly approved of this limited-edition Rado with a case made out of durable high-tech ceramic. It’s hard to scratch, and easy to admire.
DOXA SUB 300 Professional
This historic dive watch was designed to be visible deep under the ocean, but its hazard-orange dial (and available matching rubber strap) works just as well at getting it noticed on land. Harpoon and speedo are optional.
