De l’évidente beauté des montres violettes


Stephen Pulvirent, Hodinkee :

The dial is one of the stand-out things about this watch for me. It’s a rich purple hue that I’ve never seen before on a watch dial. And, honestly, more brands should take note here and give the color a chance. At first glance, you get an effect similar to what you’d find with a rich navy dial, but as the light shifts you realize there’s more at play. If there’s a such thing as a “neutral purple” that can be worn with almost anything, this is it. An added benefit is that it amplifies the slightly cool tone of the platinum, which I really appreciated.
