Seventies summer watches from the Classic Driver Market

The introduction of sports watches in the early 1970s (and the explosion of colour that came with them) means that many pieces from the era are perfect for use in the summer. We’ve selected ten of the most vibrant and quirky 1970s watches from the Classic Driver Market…

Colourful doesn’t necessarily mean brash – just take these ten 1970s timepieces from the Classic Driver Market, for example. The early 1970s was an exciting time for horology, with colourful sports watches and automatic chronographs enjoying immense popularity, prior to the looming Quartz revolution. Looking at the bold and intriguing shapes of some of these pieces – the burgundy Heuer Silverstone and the Seiko Bullhead to name just two – it’s easy to tell that these watches hail from the era in which colour televisions and miniskirts became the norm. Any of these watches are worthy of a summer spent on your wrist but, if nothing takes your fancy below, you can find hundreds more vintage pieces listed for sale in the Classic Driver Market
