When the holidays come around the darkness of the shortened days are not only fought with lights and decorations, but also with a lot of green and red. From ugly sweaters to elegant table settings; for a few weeks do these colors rule supreme. For those looking for something around their wrist to complement all this are here four suggestion, which also make very nice gifts for under the tree;
Earlier this year did Montblanc expand its successful 1868 collection with three models that combine a green dial with a bronze case. A stunning combination that is available as time-only, chronograph, or as ‘Geosphere’ with a world time complication. All three are complemented by a woven NATO-style strap in the same color as the dial. Inspired by the world of mountaineering, they are the perfect companions for when you are going hiking in the woods in search of that perfect Christmas tree.
Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Red Ceramic
Born in the fire, that is literally the case (pun intended) with this Hublot. All the ceramic parts are made at very high temperatures and under immense pressure, as this is the only way that this light and scratch-resistant material can be created in bright red. The polished ceramic goes very well with the angular design that is the trademark of Richard Orlinski, the contemporary French artist with who Hublot collaborated to create this watch. As a result, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Red Ceramic might be the perfect watch for Santa himself, but can you also think of a more appropriate timepiece to wear when you are enjoying the company of friends and family in front of the fireplace?
Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley
When you partner with a British icon like Bentley, having a watch with a green dial in your collection is mandatory. Breitling was more than happy to oblige with the beautiful Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley. An automatic, manufacture chronograph movement powers this classic chronograph. It combines its dial in British racing green with black subdials and a black border for the tachymeter scale, which happens to be written in the same color red like the tip of the chronograph seconds hand. That makes this watch an excellent choice for then you need to check the time to see if you are still on schedule as you are driving home for Christmas.
Bovet Virtuoso V
With the Virtuoso V is Bovet not only showing off its considerable technical prowess but by doing so, also the stunning dial of this watch in deep red. Bovet kept the distractions to a minimum, with just a window for the jump hour and a small retrograde minute hand above it. All that is left is that stunning dial to enjoy. The great thing about this watch is that you can also wear it the other way around, where you not only get an insight into the movement with its tourbillon but also find an additional dial that tells the time in a more traditional way.
From all of us at Haute Time to you and your loved ones, Happy holidays!
