Thread: Red is the new black

  1. #1

    Red is the new black

    There seems to be a lot of red dials lately. Is it the new color craze? Would you rock a red dial watch? I would

    If that Rado were bigger, I'd definitely want one.

    I had a red Bernhardt Sea Shark for a year or two (8-9 years ago). I like a bit of color. That Rado would be a treat, and I certainly wouldn't kick either Grand Seiko out of bed.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    As always, it depends on the watch. I would take the Reverso, thank you.

    Of all those, even as much of a Monaco lover as I am, the only one that really appeals is the Reverso. Red is a very difficult color to get right.

    Two of my friends over on the other coast have the red GS highbeat. This is a sunlight picture. Pretty amazing if you ask me. Almost bought one but I opted for the Godzilla.

    Red is the new black

    Iíve always liked the red Tutima pilot also. Different red from this breed now.


    Would love to see what Moser could do with a red dial. Though seeing what Rado did with green on the Captain Cook the Rado may be pretty spectacular in the sun light.

    I did not realize how many red watches this year and this is missing quite a few.

    Red would be OK in nightclubs modelled on nineteenth century Parisian brothels, otherwise no.

    I think the new black might be green actually... and it's this experience I've had with red of initial-attraction-swiftly-followed-by-repulsion that is giving me cold feet on green watches...

    I thought I would, but it's a very hard colour to execute well. The only good executions have been the GS godzilla and the JLC. I wouldn't buy either for watch-related reasons though.
