Look Delicious this Diwali: Accessible Watches for the Festive Season

Victory of good over evil

The dawn of light over darkness

It’s the time to celebrate

Revel in the spirit of Diwali opulence


Speaking of revelling in the sparkling opulence, with Diwali around the corner, there’s much to cheer about. It’s the perfect time to unabashedly indulge and rejoice life. One way of doing that, is by gorging on delectable Indian sweets. And no, nobody even bothers staying away from them.

Did you also know, that Diwali occurs on the day when the picturesque moon leaves us with its absence?

However, what if, the beautiful moon that reminds us of the appetizing sweets makes it to your wrist, a tad bit shinier and glossier? Well, we don’t think anyone’s complaining because not only do we get to keep a track of time but we’re also reminded to devour sweets, keeping the celebrations rather scrumptious.

This festive season, The Hour Markers present a list of 5 accessible yet stylish timepieces you can wear that will make you look deliciously festive ready. Let’s take a look:

1) Rado Centrix Automatic Diamonds R30037732

The aesthetically designed, Centrix Automatic Diamonds, a modified model has a rounded sapphire crystal. With adjusted case lugs and a bracelet made of polished rose-gold-coloured PVD-coated stainless steel and brown high-tech ceramic middle links. The brown dial reminds us of a tasty and shiny gulab jamun, and we’re sure everyone wants to get their hands on it. Furthermore, the three-hand calibre R763 movement exceeds standard accuracy test requirements from 3 to 5 positions, due to the antimagnetic Nivachron TM hairspring for increased accuracy.

The watch is water resistant up to 50 mm and offers 80 hours of power reserve.

Don’t we all love a juicy and hot gulab jamun at the end of a hearty meal?

2) Longines Mini Dolcevita

The Longines Mini Dolcevita resembles a very tempting mint green barfi, ready to be gulped. This bite-sized timepiece is exquisitely crafted and displays quiet luxury and contemporary elegance.

The rectangular stainless-steel case, 21.50mm x 29.00mm is steered by a quartz movement, L178 calibre. The 38 IF-VVS Top Wesselton diamond studded case, the alligator strap with a Roman rectangular dial with an inner square that displays the guilloche effect, definitely makes this timepiece a palatable select.

3) Tag Heuer Carrera Date

The Swiss watch makers, Tag Heuer are back with their newest editon – ‘Tag Heuer Carrera Date.’ This classic beauty combines elegance with luxury in the most sophisticated way. To say, it mirrors a ‘Kaju Katli’ an Indian dessert loved by all and a must-have during the festive season would be an understatement. The 76 diamonds (0.288 CT), rose gold plated indexes, hands and the silver in the watch acts like the ‘chandi ka virk’ that covers the mouth-watering sweet which enhances the grace. A must-have this festive season.

4) Seiko Sharp Edged ‘Laurel’ Limited Edition 110th Seiko Wristwatch Making Anniversary SPB413J1

Just like the decadent and velvety mishit doi, the Seiko Sharp Edged ‘Laurel’ looks no different. The white, ‘Asanoha’ Japanese hemp leaf textured dial pattern is a true representation of the sweetened yogurt, marked with a red accent at 12 o’clock. The leather strap adds to the timeless chicness of the watch. With Seiko 6R55 calibre built in-house and an extended three-day power reserve, this minimalistic timepiece upon wearing sure gives the maximum impact.

5) Bvlgari Divas Dream Ref. No 102433

The Bvlgari Divas Dream is a delicate and sensual timepiece much like our very own ‘besan ladoo.’ The smooth, creamy texture of this Diwali special sweet resembles the petite lustrous natural acetate dial. The authentic fan shaped motif, the allure of the Caracalla Baths marble and the beautiful play of gold and diamonds across the timepiece make this watch festive ready.
