Starting from the bottom, literally, Kenneth Cole started out making women’s footwear in 1982, and now it’s here with its Spring-Summer ‘19 collection of watches. The new collection for men and women, have a timeless design, a contemporary touch, but not without the telling elements of the KCNY brand. The current trend for wrist wear in Indonesia favors simplicity above rowdy designs, and that’s what KCNY delivers on. The first in the Spring-Summer ‘19 lineup of wristwatches by Kenneth Cole is the KC50776001, not the catchiest of names, but the KC6001, for short, is renowned for their Skeleton automatics and classic styling, featuring recurring color themes of blues, browns and rose gold hues. The watch also features a striking polished 42.4mm case with a skeleton dial. The light metallic blue hour markers and pop blue seconds hands stands out against the white and silver backdrop. Complete with a black and blue stitched leather strap. This model is also available in 6 colorways with a choice of black, brown and blue leather strap. The new collection also brought in a whole family called the KC50784001, the KC4001 for short. A collection for the “gents” include solar-powered timepieces.
