This year, the month of February is basked in red and this time, it’s not only a result of Valentine’s Day. The Chinese Lunar New Year falls on February 16th with the cultural celebration extending to a couple of weeks. The city has embellished their malls and shops with decorative elements and lanterns garnering a joyous sentiment amongst the residents. Trickling down to people, individuals are accessorising their attire featuring red items such as jewellery and watches to join in on the far-eastern celebration. Lucky for the ladies, we have selected three timepieces that will be excellent additions to their wardrobe for the festivities.
Our first selection is the IWC Portofino Automatic 37 in stainless steel and diamond bezel case. Decked in an attractive Santoni red Alligator strap, the silver plated dial houses matching silver hour markers with two Roman numerals at the 6 and 12 o’clock position. The contrasting colors creates an alluring aesthetic with its understated elegance effortlessly adorning the wearer’s wrist. The 37 mm luxury timepiece employs a 42 hour power reserve and has a 3 bar water resistance.
La D de Dior Satine makes our list with its bright red dial accompanied by four diamonds found on the 12,3,6, and 9 o’clock positions. Paired with a Milanese mesh stainless steel bracelet and encompassed with a diamond encrusted bezel & crown, the 25mm quartz movement employs an anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass that provides perfect viewing of the satin-like textured dial. Dubbed as an ode to femininity, the Dior timepiece beautifully marries haute couture and horology with the precious creation.
Last but certainly not least, the Baume & Mercier finalizes our list with its Promesse 10262 timepiece. A round 34mm dial designed with precious white mother of pearl, the Swiss made quartz movement dazzles with its diamond studs and white gold case. Pointed geometrical hands elevate the classic design and provide an additional dimension of style. The watch is stylishly sealed off with the glossy red alligator strap.
