Remember, remember the 5th of November………..
The little rhyme springs to mind as the date edges near. The night where the skies light up with exploding fireworks of colour and sparkle, the glow and warmth of the bonfire burns brightly and the crackling of sparklers are heard in the distance. To celebrate the rapidly approaching Bonfire night, Jura Watches reflect on those bold, vibrant watches that demand attention from spectators. Be prepared to be dazzled with the explosion of colour - a lot of ‘ooooo’s’ and ‘ahhhhh’s’ will suffice!!
Many luxury watch brands experiment with colour whether the vibrant shades be in the form of a watch strap, an hour hand, bezel or dial. The injection of colour can completely transform a wrist watch and the art of timekeeping dramatically. Watch designers understand how to use colour effectively when creating a new timepiece allowing for features to demand attention from watch enthusiasts worldwide. A similar principle to how fireworks dazzle, amaze and impress!!!!
A futuristic explosion of green that embodies the uniquely shaped central hands and hour markers stands out against the layered grey dial.
