Benetton by Bulova - Pastel Coloured Abstract Pattern

Today is another from my collection of the Bulova watches made for Benetton. This brand is another one with many different face designs that I have to work out a name for each time.

The Benetton by Bulova range started around the late 80s or early 90s, and are a collection of watches with similar cases but with many different face designs. At least some of the watches came with the phrase "Time of the World" so I think this may have been the logos tag-line.

All of the Benetton by Bulova watches I've seen so far are quartz analogue watches, and this is no exception, and this watch has a 3 hand dial design. It has the same case shape as the rest of the range, but in an aluminium colour, and features the Benetton logo at the bottom.

For this particular model, the face design is hard to describe. It has a purple background with abstract shapes drawn on. The shapes are in pastel yellow, purple, blue, and green, and all have a black scribble pattern over them. The Benetton name is written down the centre of the watch from the 12 o'clock position to the 6 o'clock position (where the only number is on the face), and 'by Bulova' is written at the 3 o'clock position.

The back has the usual info, saying United Colors of Benetton, By Bulova, and Mod. Dep. in the middle and stating this has a stainless steel back and base metal bezel.
