Exciting news for watch lovers as Pandora is set to launch a series of silicone watches! These are hugely popular in Europe and just gaining traction in the US, although ceramic timepieces have been more prevalent here. The rumors of these watches started a couple months ago, and in fact, they’ve been released in Denmark since the beginning of July. No information yet on when exactly they’re going to be released globally but speculation is that they’ll be coming with the next release (probably early 2014), but these will only be available in Concept Stores.
These watches should be reasonably priced, they’re $99AUD and 895DKK, approximately $91 and $160 in USD, which is quite a large range, but without VAT the price will probably be similar to the Australian price. They are also water resistant, not waterproof, and come in 5 colors: black, blue, purple, red, and white. From their release in Denmark, I’m told that the black sold out the quickest. There is a tendency for the silicone to show wear more readily, especially the white one. While these watches are based off the Pandora Imagine style watch, unfortunately the bands and bezels are not interchangeable.
Thanks to my friend, Lea and an anonymous charms addict, we have these photos of this upcoming collection. Do you like Pandora watches? What do you think of this new material?
