Talk about a name that says it all! Watches from the Fun Colors collection by Viceroy are energetic complements to loving and living life. Big round or square cases in summery white or brilliant black provide the foundation for an array of colorful dials and accents that are sure to put the proverbial strut in the wearer’s step.
Texture also plays an important role in capturing the lively and spontaneous personality of Fun Colors watches. Take, for example, the 45 mm model with a purple sunray dial, which is among the most striking in the collection. The sunray pattern imbues the color with a sense of movement and energy – the result is pure radiance.

To enhance the dial pattern, an inspiring combination of white and purple are incorporated into every aspect of the design. The case is made of stainless steel but only the lugs are visible behind the large diving-style white bezel, which intentionally minimizes its silvery appearance. Large sword-shaped hour and minute hands, together with the thin purple seconds hand, are well proportioned atop the spacious dial. Three sub-dials add further visual balance, with the day and date counters slightly overlapping the 24-hour counter.
The white rubber strap with embossed central rib adds additional texture. Of course rubber has a practical side, too, since summer watches must be able to withstand the heat, and rubber is perfect for wicking away water. To ensure a perfect match, purple stitching lines both sides of the strap.
While this purple-and-white model certainly has feminine flair, the Fun Colors collection includes several watches with a more masculine flavor, especially those models with black cases. Some are composed of more traditional color combinations like black and white, but most include splashes of bright color. Variations include models with day-and-date functions, chronographs and three-handed dials.
The Fun Colors collection is an escapist’s dream – watches that leap confidently from the ordinary into a world of playfulness and the extraordinary.
