Who’s afraid of Red? Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge – LIVE Photos
Unusual… that’s most likely the best word for a watch with a red dial. For this situation anyway it’s irregular, yet additionally cool! The new Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge looks cool and sophisticated.
I need to concede that I’m sort of moderate while picking a watch for my own wrist. The Hautlence HL Ti 02 is an exemption, despite the fact that its plan looks sort of futuristic, it still highlights a monochrome shading plan and no wild and bright dial. Meet the exception…
Usually even a case made in yellow, pink or red gold is excessively conspicuous for my taste and I lean toward white metals. Comparative with dials, I incline toward them dark, white, silver or anthracite. I realize this may sound exhausting, yet I think there’s enough variety inside these boundaries. You won’t effectively see a watch with a bright dial in my own assortment or on my list of things to get. So envision my unexpected when I lashed the Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge on my wrist!
The case with its ultra meager plan is smooth and exquisite, and even the dim red dial isn’t excessively wild or active. In any event not for my taste. So let’s call it active in an understated way. Eccentric, however stylish.
This might be considered as something odd. In the realm of Haute Horlogerie there are very little watches with a ‘loud’ dial. Normally the plan stays exemplary as is the utilization of tones. Obviously there are a few deviations of the old style theme, yet there are only a couple without looking at Hublot .
A few years prior Girard-Perregaux made a chronograph for Ferrari with a red dial. Furthermore, obviously there is Franck Müller, one of only a handful rare sorts of people who isn’t scared of a beautiful dial. As of late he demonstrated (once more) with his gift to Only Watch. The Franck Müller ‘Totally Switzerland’ wore a brilliant red dial with a white cross. The dial is extremely red and excessively red for my taste.
The red of this new Grande Reverso 1931 Rouge is a lot more obscure red. It’s so exquisite I would nearly fail to remember that it’s red. What’s more, despite the fact that I’m very moderate with regards to watches, yes in any event, as far as I might be concerned, this would be an ideal watch for wearing consistently to the office.
