The best colorful luxury watches

Breitling

This colorful luxury Top Time chronograph capsule collection watches by Breitling, which pays homage to three American performance cars from the 1960s – the Shelby American Cobra (left, with blue and white dial), the Chevrolet Corvette (center, with red and black dial) and the Ford Mustang (at right, with green and black dial) – perfectly nails the vintage vibe. In 42mm (Corvette and Mustang) and 40mm (Cobra) stainless steel cases and racing-style leather straps, all three watches feature ETA-based automatic movements – on the 42mm models , it is the caliber 1 / 8th of a second 25, while the 40 mm version obtains the caliber 41 1/4 of a second; all beat at 4 Hz for a power reserve of 42 hours. Contrasting color accents on the outer tachymeter scale of each dial further increase the appeal.

H. Moser & Cie.

Although with a design similar to that of the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828”, Moser Dual Time Legacy Not only does it get a sun-shining smoky burgundy dial but, to polish its already convincing vintage pilot credentials, it also has a 24 hour second hand which, when the user is not traveling, can cleverly be hidden under the hand. main hours. If this was not sufficiently revealing of the ingenuity of this small Schaffhausen manufacturer, the brand’s logo is rendered in transparent lacquer and, under certain lights, becomes almost invisible. In a 42 mm steel case, the watch is powered by the HMC automatic caliber, which rotates at 3 Hz for a reserve of 72 hours.

Grand Seiko

If the sword-shaped hands and multifaceted indexes (which glow seductively from the angle you look at them) weren’t enough to tell you this is a Grand Seiko, then just look at the dial of this limited edition Snow on the Blue Lake. Inspired by the winter wonderland of Hachimandai in Iwate Prefecture, the delicate light blue hue is reminiscent of the sun on the snow. With only 140 pieces available in five key Asian markets, this delightful and rare timepiece is presented in a 40mm steel case housing the caliber 9S85, an ultra-precise automatic movement offering a 55-hour power reserve.

Omega

The best Omega colorful luxury watches

Although Omega’s current dress design codes Collection of constellations were in retreat in the early 1980s, this is how trends seem to have come back into fashion. It should come as no surprise then that the brand has decided to rekindle the Constellation’s appeal even further with the recent release of three 36mm ladies’ versions featuring bezels set with diamonds, sunbrushed PVD-colored dials and bracelets. in matching alligator. While all have steel cases and are powered by Omega’s Metas-certified co-axial 8800 automatic caliber, the burgundy model features a steel bezel, the blue reference comes with a yellow gold bezel and the brown version has a a Sedna gold bezel.

Audemars Piguet

One of the main criticisms when Audemars Piguet unveiled its Code 11.59 three years ago was that while technically and in terms of craftsmanship the watches were exceptional, the dials were somewhat boring – and especially on the simpler models. The subsequent release, in September 2020, of five new chronograph and three-hand models with sun-lacquered dials in blue, gray, burgundy and purple, went a long way in addressing these issues – and especially since these opulent hues are offset by white and rose gold for the case and dial furnishings, and matched with luxurious alligator straps. In fact, we would go so far as to say that they are actually quite fabulous.

Bvlgari x MB&F

In an unprecedented collaboration, Bvlgari and MB&F revealed two extravagant v set with precious stonesersions of the independent Swiss watchmaker’s Flying T at the recent Dubai Watch Week. One, shown here, is in rose gold with a pink alligator strap and the other in white gold with a green strap – and both are covered in clear, colored stones. In 39 x 20 mm cases with delicately domed crystals, these limited editions of 20 pieces are not watches for everyday wear, but they demonstrate the spectacular results that can be achieved when avant-garde watchmaking and the creativity of fine jewelry colliding.

Rolex

The best Rolex colorful luxury watches

For Rolex watchers accustomed to tiny but earth-shattering changes in case diameter or bezel thickness, the drop in new watches by the company in late summer 2020 must have come as a particular shock as among them was an Oyster Perpetuals quintet in 36mm steel cases. and brightly lacquered dials. Four of them – in yellow, turquoise, coral red, and candy pink – are featured here; there was also a not-so-dazzling green, and this year they were joined by 36mm Datejust with palm-patterned dials in olive green, gold, and gray. It may all be unusually light on the outside, but they’re decidedly Rolex on the inside, featuring Superlative Chronometer movements with Chronergy escapements and a 70-hour power reserve.

Richard Mille

Another tribute to Richard Mille’s longtime friend, ambassador and great tennis player, the new RM 35-03 Rafael Nadal brings a new patented innovation – in the form of a butterfly rotor, three years of development – to the brand’s high-tech tip box. This new feature, says the brand, “allows the wearer to interact directly with the geometry of the rotor, controlling the winding speed of the movement according to lifestyle and activity levels…” Philistines that we are, we however, are more interested in the color scheme of the watch. , which on this version includes Quartz TPT blue, red, yellow and white (there is another model in Quartz TPT mainly white and light blue).

Porthole

Never one of the shrinking violets of the Swiss watch industry, Hublot has become renowned for pushing the boat – although, in this latest collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, the ship in question is more of a superyacht than a skiff. Indeed, the limited edition Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Rainbow Sapphire, whose name pretty much says it all, is described by Hublot as “a tourbillon of transparency and color”, which it would indeed be if you combined a 45mm solid sapphire case with a rotating dial made up of 384 brightly colored gemstones. And yes, if you were wondering, it even shows the time.
