Sometimes, you just want a clean, simple, three-hander watch. Sometimes, you want something that’s a big bold splash of color. Well, how do you get that peanut butter and chocolate together? Well, in the watch world, a variety of ways. Most recently, the Projects Watches Witherspoon Rouge gets the job done.
To start with, the Projects Watches Witherspoon Rouge has a 40mm case that is under 9mm thick, and is paired (via the faux wire lugs) to a 20mm strap. Where this particular watch sings – for me – is in the color. Obviously, the Rouge part of the name refers to that almost-pastel red dial, and it’s paired to a brighter royal blue strap that is just a classic look, and of course will be ready for your Independence Day celebrations.
For those design-minded folks, it probably helps that this is a continuation of a design done by Michael Graves (you can see the prior versions here) and literally carries his signature on the dial.
Coming in at a reasonable $149, I think the Projects Watches Witherspoon Rouge is a great way to get a splash of color on your wrist to combat the winter-time grey, as well as carry right on into spring and summer. Sure, it’s “just” a quartz three-hander, but there’s no denying that dial design. projectswatches.com

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
