Halloween is so close at hand and, with parties happening all weekend long until Tuesday, your regular watch might not cut it to go with a specially prepared costume. Here we’ve compiled a list of watches that will pair perfectly with your garb be it a charming retro look, a cool superhero/ine, a frightening clown, or even without a costume.
Reinterpreting the creativity and aesthetic from successful earlier models, Vacheron Constantin launched the Historiques Triple calendrier 1942. Black Arabic numerals tell the hour, and seconds located on the sixth hour; meanwhile, blue or burgundy paints the date around the 40mm case, and the date and month inside two windows at 12 o’clock. The sporty model further embody the era with two-tone silvered dial, stainless-steel case, and brown or black alligator-leather strap.
Costume ideas: The flair and variety of styles from the 1920s to 1940s will go perfectly well with this dandy piece from Vacheron Constantin.
Cool and futuristic, Roger Dubuis’s precision and Lamborghini’s performance meet in the Excalibur Aventador S made from skeletonised, multi-layered carbon in a titanium container. A skeletonised dial plated in rhodium down to the indexes, plus a pop of yellow on the hands, crown and stitches, further takes the Excalibur to the edge. The hand-wound RD103SQ Calibre’s double-sprung balances tick steadily inside with up to 40 hours of power reserve.
Costume ideas: A long list of super humans, mutants, super villains, and many other characters from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and other comic publishers—Lamborghini optional.
Big Bubble Anima is the latest apple of Corum’s eye created in partnership with DJ and composer Matteo Ceccarini. Piercingly blue, the eye looks lively thanks to an advanced 3D technology and Corum’s famous domed sapphire crystal. Anima’s face is free from numerals and thus, time is told by a circle for the hour and by a black dot for the minute. As for the heart, CO390 beats automatically with a power reserve up to 65 hours.
Costume ideas: Worn with a creepy and scary costume, Anima’s eye will leave a memorable impression on the beholder’s anima, or soul.
For the first special edition featuring Tag Heuer’s Art Provocateur, Alec Monopoly, his signature spray-paint artwork decorates the dial together with Mr Monopoly. The famed banker’s debonair style needs only a simple brushed-steel case, a black rotating bezel, and a black-rubber strap to complete the look. A date window on the third hour and Alec’s engraved logo on the steel case-back are the sweet cherries on top.
Costume ideas: Who needs a costume when Tag Heuer’s daring statement is on your wrist? Simply pair it with this season’s deconstructed trend and with your fabulous self, of course.
