Red yellow skull watch

It seems like the Swiss watch brand Tendence has made an impact on watch designs since it was started in 2007. This is the second watch I've blogged which isn't Tendence, but bears more than a passing resemblance.

This watch is by a brand called Red, which is another of the small fashion brands from the Far East which makes cheap but cheerful watches. As seems to be the normal situation for these brands, there doesn't seem to be much of a Web presence, except for sightings on sales sites. I've seen a few watches by Red, and their speciality seems to be extra large watches. The logo features the name Red in front of 3 lines, with the phrase "Made in New York" in the bottom line (although I'm pretty sure that the watch isn't actually made there).

This model is a very large watch with a 3 hand dial set deep into the body. Around the edge of the dial are the hour numbers in 3D which protrude from the sloped sides (and are influenced in style by the Tendence watches). On the face is a yellow skull design with silver sparkly spots on a black background, and the 12, 4, and 8 numbers are in a matching yellow. The thick rubbery strap is also in a matching yellow, and is custom fitted for the watch design.

The back doesn't give any more clues as it just says it is stainless steel, and has the logo engraved in the centre.

For the date of the watch, I'm guessing that this is from after the Tendence brand was started, and as they seem to have become more popular in recent years, it makes me think that this is a post-2010 watch.
