Red like a
Red is the colour most closely associated with passion, everlasting affection and love. It is also the colour of the ruby, the design signature of the House of Gübelin that adorns every delicate creation of the Swiss luxury House. To celebrate this extraordinary colour and its beautiful associations, we have decided to highlight a few of our favourite timepieces that present themselves in reds of different hues. We wish you much joy experiencing the highest forms of craftsmanship, inspired designs and beautiful mechanics, all draped in the colour of love itself.
This Swiss manufacturer is well known for producing some of the most refined movements in the world. These calibers find their homes in Jaeger-LeCoultre's own precious timepieces but also in the creations of other highly esteemed watch brands. The Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece in the colour of love we would like to present to you today is the magnificent Master Ultra Thin Moon. Matching the elegant red straps beautifully, a pink gold case houses the eggshell beige sunburst dial with gilded hour markers and dauphine hands. At 6 o'clock, the date as well as the moon phase are indicated in a delicate sub-dial. Adding even more to the strong visual allure, this magnificent timepiece reveals its hand crafted movement through the transparent case back. Although Jaeger-LeCoultre is certainly famous for its highly complicated mechanics, and rightfully so, this beautiful watch is one of many reminders that inspired design is held in the same high regard as the arts of craftsmanship at this Maison of Haute Horology.
When thinking about Ulysse Nardin, the colour red is certainly not the first one that comes to mind. It is the subtle blues of a calm ocean or the roaring grey colours of the sea in exciting turmoil that are perhaps most closely associated with this tradition-steeped Swiss watch manufacturer. A highly innovative watchmaker, Ulysse Nardin is used to pushing boundaries when it comes to technology as well as design while still showing a deep appreciation of tradition. For the Classico Jade, Ulysse Nardin once more fused captivating allure with expert watchmaking skills. The stainless steel 34 mm case of this automatic watch beautifully presents the diamond set bezel and the white mother-of-pearl dial that is adorned by a swirling wave of nine diamonds. Large wine red Arabic hour markers and delicate leaf-shaped hands complete a watch face that conveys excitement and serenity at once. A burgundy alligator leather strap with a folding buckle complements the beautiful hour markers and adds the finishing touch. The Classico Jade truly combines a timeless, classic and yet exciting design with the impressive technology that finds its way into every Ulysse Nardin timepiece.

Emboldened by 2,700 years of Roman history, Bvlgari honours its rich past with modern designs, known for stylistic audacity and a penchant for colour. This affinity for the perfect use of different hues is clearly noticeable in this beautiful variety of the already iconic Bvlgari Serpenti timepiece. The stainless steel curved case with the diamond-set bezel is reminiscent of a snake's head and presents the red lacquered dial with guilloché soleil décor and hand-applied indices. A pink cabochon-cut rubellite is set on the crown of this beautiful watch, which is rounded off by the red double tour karung leather strap. This legendary timepiece with its iconic shape and beautiful red strap is sure to turn heads on elegant as well as less formal occasions.
