We all know men's accessories can be kind of dull, especially when it comes to watches. So when there's something new rather than just a stainless steel or brown leather band, I take note. The neon for men trend that began on the Spring 08 Burberry/Y-3/Moschino runways is now showing up in timepiece form. Case in point: the bright blue Fred Flare, at left, and Burberry's new Antarctic collection with three retina-searing color options. Even Hermès (sort of) jumped on the bandwagon by using their bright orange on their Clipper Chrono Diver, which will set you back $3,975. The thing about a good watch is that it works with every outfit, from a tuxedo to a linen blazer to bermudas. Trouble is, they can get pretty pricey, so girls should be very happy that they can get in on the neon look with just $10 nail polish. --KYLE HAYES
