We went behind-the-scenes at Watch Station International to discover the new fashion-forward designs we’ll all be snapping up this autumn/winter. With Michael Kors, Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs to choose from, you’ll have to make some very tough decisions…

As new season watch previews go, seeing the AW16 collections from Skagen, Fossil, Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, DKNY, Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Spade and Tory Burch all in one go is nothing to be sniffed at.

We photographed our favourite pieces to help you make some style choices come September…


Fossil wants you to go off on an adventure this autumn with its new ‘Camp Fossil’ inspired collection. Think taupe, khaki, deep brown and navy straps with pared back detailing and subtle sparkling accents. Keep your eye out for new additions to the classic Jacqueline and Grant ranges, plus the Fossil Q Generation Two smartwatches.


Inspired by the magic of time travel, the AW16 Skagen collection is all about bridging the gap between past, present and future. The hero piece in the range is a new dual time design, allowing you to set your watch to two different world time zones.

Kate Spade

If the cold and dark winter weather makes you feel blue, perhaps New York City-inspired brand Kate Spade can cheer you up? The brand’s new collection fuses its sense of easy-glamour with playful motifs, like cocktail glasses, cats, goldfish and even bananas.

Michael Kors

Warm, rich jewel tones are the order of the day at Michael Kors for AW16, including lots of yellow gold hues, rose accents and a new ‘sable’ shade that’s guaranteed to be a best-seller. If you want to snap something up this season, we recommend a knockout combination of yellow gold hues and a turquoise dial.

Armani Exchange

Bold is key for this season’s Armani Exchange collection, which takes inspiration from five massive fashion trends – night bright, orange crush, digital download, golden rule and shadows. These may sound like chapters from a teen fantasy novel, but trust us, some of these watches are worth your money.

Marc Jacobs

We were pleasantly surprised by the Marc Jacobs AW16 offer, which includes an interesting rounded-square case shape that reminds us of the Chanel Boy.Friend. Elsewhere, the brand has focused on little details that make all the difference, like graduating the size of hours markers as you rotate around the dial and a new oxblood leather for straps.


There is an understated simplicity about the new collection from DKNY, which includes some great everyday-wear pieces in yellow gold, rose gold and silver tones. We were also impressed with the paired back dial design, which alternates numbers with graphic line indices.

Tory Burch

There’s a cool-without-really-trying vibe to Tory Burch watches, which makes them exciting but easy-to-wear. Two pieces that stand out are the Classic T with a tan leather strap and the Reva with an ivory dial and gold-tone bracelet strap.

Karl Lagerfeld

Go bold or go home must be the motto of Karl Lagerfeld this season. Think gold quilted-effect dials, chunky bracelet designs and a deep raspberry pink shade that will look fantastic with winter knits.
