Watches for women: all the colors of the rainbow

From the ancient times the man has noticed an incredible power and attractiveness of various rich colors and has been using this magic everywhere since that time. The watch industry is not an exception. The bright time measuring devices, especially for women, are a large stage for such “color” art. Creating multicolored women wrist watches, the companies put feelings and emotions into their masterpieces together with colors - and the women watches acquire completely new facets of usual indexes. So, get ready to fascinating trip to multicolored fantasy, frightening the imagination, and unforgettable promenade on the rainbow, leading to multicolored world of women wrist watches. 

Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain!
color spectrumWhen we hear this good old phase, we willy-nilly imagine an amazing rainbow and multicolored strips. The rainbow, perhaps, is the only natural phenomena, which can raise the spirit and evoke a careless smile with its beauty and charm.  You can’t keep your head cool when you see a wide range of bright things, rich with colorful elements – colors won’t leave anyone indifferent. According to history, in 1665 Isaac Newton was the first man who refracted the sunlight that resulted in rainbow (or spectrum). Blue, yellow and red were considered to be the main colors, the rest tones – intermediate. When you come to think of it, the color is a quite interesting phenomenon.  Everyone wandered at least once, why one or another thing was of the color it was: the grass is green, the cloud is white, the rose is red, etc. Some things can be explained by scientists with the help of chemistry or physics, but all the same, the color is a great magic, which conceals the secret of universe. The power of color is confirmed in the Bible, telling us about the connection of rainbow and the God: “I do set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth." (The first book of Moses, the genesis 9:13). More than one millennium has passed until the man managed to “handle” with colors at his option. There is an interesting legend about the most mysterious and striking color in the world – the red, which says that red or purple were first used by the Phoenicians as dyes. In the middle of II century AC the dog of king Fonnix’s herdsman bit a lying on the beach dried shellfish and got a red nose. Therefore, they knew: after drying off that kind of shellfish can produce the red color. The high cost of that dye production was the only disadvantage of the “dog’s discovery”, as about 10 000 shellfishes had to be sacrificed to receive one gram of paint. That paint was really worth its weight in gold! The earliest extant samples of prehistoric paints refer to the XVI century AC. They are found in ancient caves of modern South France, Spain and South Africa. They were oil substances, made of animal fat and natural pigments (ochre, chalk, etc) mixture. The great genius of Renaissance, artist Leonardo Da Vinci was the first “colorist”, who created a well-composed system of colors. He affirmed that the variety of colors, founded by the ancient Greeks and Romans, may be limited. According to Leonardo Da Vinci, there are six simple or main colors, which are white, black, green, blue, red and yellow. The great artist also mentions that a color has two global aspects – artistic and physical.  

Effect of color on man

After age-old studies of color the man concluded that each color contains
color spectrum some message, each color tome means something. Despite its purely physical nature, the color has a great influence on our emotional life. For example, according to Johann Goethe, all dark colors calm, light ones – excite. And other famous psychologists consider that the color has a great effect on your life, your mood, emotions, feelings and choice. The color effect on subconsciousness can be noticed by anyone, even by a person, who doesn’t know anything about psychology.  Everyone knows by its experience that one or another color may calm or excite, create harmony or change your inner world into chaos, evoke a shock. Such phenomenon, as color combination, has an enormous effect: some colors intensify each other, others – subdue. Some colors mean much for certain nations and cultures. So, the agriculture nations have many words or “color names” for various tones of green. This color is vitally important for them, as the growing plants are their food; the life of whole nation depends on harvest. Or, for example, there are up to 20-30 names of white color tones in the languages of some northern nations. These names correspond to the snow tones in different conditions (solid snow, shining snow, melted snow, falling snow, snowstorm, etc.). And it’s not surprising, as if you see the snow around yourself every day, you start to notice involuntarily that in different places and in different conditions it has absolutely different tones. It’s also interesting to know that small infants at the age of four months can’t differentiate color tones. According to researches, the four-month infants differentiate four colors well: red, green, yellow and blue. By the way, yellow is the first color, which infants perceive. The colors communicate with people, although in nonverbal way. If earlier they could say where one lived and came from by the colors of his clothes and accessories, now these geographical and national color differences have been smoothed away due to the development of various cultures. Nevertheless, today the color can easily tells us about not traditional features of culture, but personal likings of the person, wearing this color.
The famous modern Japanese writer and translator Haruki Murakami fairly affirm that man is a strange creature: it takes only 10 minutes to sit with closed eyes, and an amazing multicolor is seen. We want to believe that our dear reader nods his agreement. You can’t but agree that we often don’t see and don’t want to see all the amazing variety of things, phenomena and colors, which the nature and our life present us. In fact it only seems that the world is dull, dark and lack of colors, on the contrary, it is full with wide range of colors and tones. Those, who become slaves of “colorless” way of life and don’t try to change and decorate their lives, who don’t risk to experiment with colors, are dying slowly. Look around, our world is a rainbow itself, and what color it will chose for today is only up to us. Sounds like a call?! Maybe. But we have digressed from the topic, having got lost in reasoning about our colorful world. So, let’s leave the complex researches of color perception and effect of different color tones on subconciousness for colorists and psychologists.

Colorful women watches as a way of self-expression
the lady with watchThe things the modern dodger has to do to “paint” his world and add a range of bright colors to it. The fair sex succeeded much in the “rainbow sphere”. The woman indeed is the main fan of the most bright, colorful and motley things. This is the way she tries to cheer up, draw the attention of the most fastidious “critic” – the man, become remarkable, win the whole world with her beauty and charm, and to attract rapt looks. Brightness and colors mostly symbolize the cheerful, careless and buoyant youth. One should be careful with colors, otherwise there is a risk to look silly and tastelessly. And the wise women succeed in it. A diffused opinion that women wear bright things or colorful accessories just because they are many-colored is mistaken. Every woman, deep in her heart though, knows why she “wears such rainbow”. Each color speaks about the woman’s specific character, psyche and pattern of thoughts. As they say, nothing happens for nothing. A bright thing, either it is dress, shoes, earrings, beads, or wrist watches, is not a mere bright trinket or useless accessory. It is a perfect way of self-expression. The watch companies, painting their watch masterpieces for sophisticated women wrists in all colors of the rainbow, managed to get to the bottom of mysterious woman’s soul, dying to the beauty. The watchmakers see eye to eye on the point that the women wrist watches, of course, should be bright and original, they should emphasize the beauty of their owners, but not overshadow it anyhow. Let’s return to the history once again. So, the African Bushmen and Indians, for example, had a custom to paint their faces with all colors of the rainbow before they went hunting or fighting wars. That color paintings were thought to bring success in fights and hunting fields. The world watch companies, perhaps, in pursuit of the same success that the warlike Indians were striving for, produce the women wrist watches so variable in their colors that it’s easy to get dazzled by all that beauty. Now the fans of bright colors don’t have to be limited with black-and-white range. There are watches of all colors, which will match any event or dress. Nevertheless, there are some events, colorful women's watcheswhich don’t allow wearing bright watches, that’s why the classic models of neutral colors will be always popular. The fact that the women wrist watches are always in sight was the base for the watch companies, changing restrained women watches into bright, flashy, multicolored models. Each representative of fair sex can choose the role and the color, corresponding to her specific character and personal features in the best way possible. The wrist watch itself is a thing, which perfectly characterizes its owner, but the color wrist watch is a real “loudspeaker”, telling everyone about your mood, lifestyle, character, preferences. Recently, having yielded to total tendency to women wrist watches complications, the Swiss and world watch masters, apart from internal complications of movement, experiment with external, color complications. As it has turned out, it’s not so easy to create women wrist watches, perfectly combining bright, rich colors and delicate sophisticated taste. Mismatched colors are an obvious fiasco, that’s why the mission of designers is very important in creating women wrist watches. The colors indeed give birth to the form of things and, in our case, to the form of time. The world of modern women wrist watches is incredibly rich with bright colors, which are able to evoke specific feelings. When we look at a certain color, we feel sympathy or antipathy to it. This feature of color is based on genetic (species) memory, i.e. the color perception doesn’t appear spontaneously, it was formed gradually, based on the experience of our far ancestors. The associations we have when we see a certain color are mostly standard: the blue is a color of sky and distance, the red is a color of love and fire, the green – color of life, the black – color of night, etc. Thereby, from ancient times people noticed the incredible power of colors, and since those times they have been using them in their lives. The bright wrist watches, measuring minute by minute of our even bright life, are an undeniable fact that everything has its own color. Even the time.
