Red Hot Watches To Wear This Summer

August 5, 2018

BY Paul Altieri


It’s time to embrace the heat wave. Yeah, you could make a run for the boat and grab your Yachtmaster for the ride; you could also keep it cool by the pool with the icy face of an Explorer II Polar. But, why not give into summer’s sultry breeze and sport a timepiece that’s just as hot?

Red accents are bold and unexpected — you’ll find few and far between in the luxury watch market. But when the world’s top holongories decide to go red, they do it oh-so-well. Here are just a few of the red-hot watches we think you should sport this summer.

The Unico Red Sapphire Hublot Big Bang is a show stopper with red accents

Deep Red: Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Sapphire

It doesn’t get much hotter than having an entire red sapphire crystal as the case of your timepiece. The oversized 44mm Big Bang Unico Red Sapphire striking without being in your face. The deep red isn’t blinding — the crystal catching both light and glances of admirers. When you finally stop admiring the unique casing you’ll notice another transparent, anti-reflective sapphire makes up the face — giving you a peek into the mechanics of the self-winding chronograph with a flyback movement and column wheel. And if things get too heated, this waterproof watch will withstand your attempt to cool off up to 50m deep.

Ultraman Speedmaster on Wrist

The Ultraman Speedmaster is a summertime watch you can wear anywhere

Orange-Red: Omega Speedmaster “Ultraman”

For those looking for a more understated (but just as steamy) red accent, the newly released and limited edition Omega Speedmaster “Ultraman” is the ideal choice. It’s both elegant and sporty — outfitted with a black tachymeter bezel and matching black face with signature orange-red accents above the hour markers. That incredible color graces the second hand, too — making you almost overlook the athletic and stylish subdials. To top it off, there’s two types of bands that can accompany this watch. One, with a stellar orange-red racing stripe down the middle; the other, a leather band with red-orange stitching.

Cherry-Red: Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’

This watch is for the classics — those seeking something unique, yet, an iconic timepiece that will stand the test of time. The cherry red and cobalt blue bezel of the GMT-Master II has been delighting watch enthusiasts since the 1950’s, and today, we’re happy to see the most updated version of this classic red-accented bezel on the GMT-Master II Pepsi Jubilee. Released at Baselworld earlier this year, the colors are as vibrant as ever — they’re also accompanied by a stainless steel Jubilee bracelet with a matching stainless case. It’s the practical, incredibly handsome, GMT-Master II Pepsi we’ve been crossing our fingers for for years.
