Witch Watch For Halloween

Halloween has crept up stealthily upon us once more, and whether or not you plan to go traipsing through the streets trick or treating, (probably not), it is nonetheless a perfect excuse for finding the appropriately spooky watch to celebrate the occasion, if only to terrify the kids when they bang on your door for Halloween goodies.

This is our selection of Halloween themed watches from high end to trashy trinket.

 

Romain Jerome Skull watch

Romain Jerome Skull Watch

Designed by Swiss artist John M. Armleder, this high-end, limited-edition watch by Romain Jerome features an imposing skull image on its polished steel dial. Only 10 are being made, each one on different colour backdrop. RJ and Armleder collaborated on a collection of unique timepieces that will feature a recurrent motif of the skull. The skull is inspired by Amerindian culture, which feature heavily in Armleder’s work. If you buy this watch just for Halloween, you certainly know how to treat yourself.

Invicta Reserve Bolt Sport Swiss Chrono

Invicta Pumpkin Orange watch

This almost glowing pumpkin orange chronograph watch from Invicta runs on a high quality Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The oversized pushers add an extra element of cool to the watch. Water resistant to 200 metres, the pumpkin orange seems to be an ‘in’ colour at Invicta at the moment, they have several other watches with bright orange polyurethane straps.

Gothic Novelty Wristwatch

Wolf watch

If you plan to run with the wolves next Wednesday, this is the watch with which to do it. These are good quality stainless steel blank watches, running on Miyota quartz movements – the same movements which power Citizen watches among many others. There are a series of spooky faces available to scare the living daylights out of kids knocking on your door

Whimsical Watches Halloween

Halloween Flying Witch Watch

There are witches, ghouls, ghosties, a complete selection of Halloween Horrors on this tackily cheap novelty series from Whimsical Watch, which runs, of course, on a quartz movement. It would be tempting to give these bits of tat away to visiting trick or treaters, but this watch will set you back all of £65! You’re better off saving your pennies for the Romain Jerome Skull Watch.

Mr. Jones Watches Last Laugh Tattoo Edition

Mr Jones The Last Laugh Tatoo Edition

Now here’s a much more stylish watch from the macabre Mr. Jones. This one was released in time for Halloween last year and has proved incredibly popular. The time on this watch is displayed on the skull’s teeth – the upper jaw shows the hours and the lower the minutes. The watch is a link to the tradition of the Memento mori – an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize the moment while we’re here. This new version of The Last Laugh features specially commissioned artwork by British Tattoo Artist Adrian Willard. The design comes from the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.

Steampunk Trapped Bat Pocket Watch

Steampunk trapped bat

A spooky little pocketwatch in the steampunk vein. This fun novelty is made from a hollowed out pocketwatch case to resemble a small bat made from watch parts. It doesn’t tell the time, but it does look nice and spooky. The steampunk genre is an amalgamation of science, fiction and fantasy that borrows heavily from Victorian fashion. The genre gained popularity in the 80s together with its digital counterpart – the cyberpunk genre. Adherents of this innovative, highly-decorative art are called steampunks. And the primary gadget of steampunks is the pocket watch. These are basically timepieces personalized and decorated by steampunks.
