This is a story worth the read if, like me, you can’t watch a movie or a tv series without noticing what the starring ladies and gentlemen are wearing on their wrists. Many people thought it was unnecessary when the United Nations chose to dedicate November 21 to television in 1996, but it was quickly realised that the goal was to stimulate the sharing of ethnicities, ideas, and information.
Whether it’s Harvey Specter, Lady Whistledown or Monica, several TV series have made a home in our hearts. While the list was endless, here are our top 5 TV series with watches that in our opinion would suit them well.
1. Suits: Rolex Day-Date 40
Imagine this (Astronaut In The Ocean playing in the background…) What watch best describes this favourite TV show? Something that reeks classic and bold! Well, we know just the right pick for this one. It’s none other than Day-Date. This renowned model’s excellent precision, reliability, readability, and presence have made it the perfect status watch. The fluted bezel on a Rolex watch is a distinctive feature. Originally, the fluting on the Oyster bezel served a practical purpose: it was used to secure the bezel to the case, ensuring the watch’s waterproofness.
The Oyster Perpetual in 18 carats yellow gold with a white dial and a president bracelet is just the right match for the Suits offices set against the Newyork Skyline. Whether attending a meeting or fighting a plea in the courtroom, this watch complements all the elements of the show!
2. BIG Bang Theory: Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium
A show where brilliant physicists use their beautiful minds to understand how the universe works. Which watch could possibly match Sheldon’s non-conventional ways? As the name suggests, it’s got to be the Big Bang Unico Titanium. A bit cliche but fits the bill!
Its design is unique in that the column wheel is positioned on the dial side. The Unico 2 calibre was created to fit smaller chronographs and introduce new Hublot fans to the brand. It has the same unusual design as its predecessor, with a visible twin coupling system and a 72-hour power reserve on the dial side. However, it has been thinned by 1.3 mm thanks to a number of technical improvements, including the adoption of a new, flatter automatic winding system.
3. F.R.I.E.N.D.S – Omega Constellation 28mm
From Monica and Chandler, Rachel and Ross, Phoebe and Joey- this show brings the playful child out of us. Celebrating friendships and the charismatic beauty of every character, it’s a gem amongst our long list of shows.
I feel the Omega Constellation 28mm fits just right in for these ladies. This year’s new Constellation 28 mm models feature the beauty of pastels as their core subject. Through the use of bold dial colour and a matching bezel, each timepiece has developed its own distinct personality. Choose these quartz timepieces to have fun and be brilliant at all times of the day.
Blush Rose, Patchouli Blossom, Celestial Blue, and Green Matcha are among the pastel dials available matching the title of the show. At 6 o’clock on each one, you’ll find a solitary 18K white gold Constellation star. To wonderfully align with the captivating dials, OMEGA has engraved Roman numerals on each bezel in the same matching colour. These, of course, can be found on either side of the polished claws
4. Game Of Thrones: Roger Dubuis Knights Of The Round Table
Winter is coming… a line etched in our minds and the immediate relation to this show! From power battles to rare artistic mastery, it left us glued and wanting more. A match fitting enough to capture the essence of the show. Looks like Roger Dubuis’s Knights Of The Round Table does justice to it!
Anyone can’t tell the story of the Knights Of The Round Table collection. These are clocks for a secret tribe, adorned with extraordinary artistic ability. One who is well-informed. Are you willing to take the risk of discovering the legend? Come in and take a seat at the table.
The Excalibur knights of the round table is a quest for the highest level of know-how in everything a watch has to offer: design, technique, and exclusivity. Twelve micro-sculptures – the knights – are placed around a dial – the table – to create the watch’s very remarkable face. The 12 characters involved in the quest are represented by the knights, who are handcrafted.
The table, made of crystal sapphire with Murano glass blocks, represents the knights’ unity and equality. A manual winding calibre, manufactured in the Roger Dubuis workshop and certified by the Poinçon de Geneve, one of the most demanding certifications in Haute Horlogerie, lays under the face of the watch.
5. Bridgerton: Arnold & Son Perpetual Moon 38 Eclipse I
Well well, has Lady Whistledown kept us on our toes with her juicy news and discreet ways? A show that showcases English roots and the race to find the most eligible suitor! With drama yet elegance, it’s left us wondering, what next?
To match the poise and grandeur, Arnold & Son’s Perpetual Moon 38 Eclipse I is the perfect match. The Perpetual Moon 38 Eclipse I, with its 38 mm white-gold case, gem-setting, and aesthetics, ushers in a new chapter for ladies at Arnold & Son. This watch exudes refinement and delicacy, with a big precise moon and a new movement tailored to its size. Each of the eighteen watches launched has been sculpted like a piece of time sculpture.
With so many shows and so many things to love about them, hope we did justice to these trending and much-loved TV series. What do you think?
