MIX AND MATCH YOUR ENSEMBLE WITH THESE LUXURY TIMEPIECES TO ADD A LITTLE COLOUR TO YOUR AIDILFITRI CELEBRATION

Hari Raya Aidilfitri marks the end of Ramadan, the fasting month for Muslims. The festival holds a lot of significance for our Muslim brothers and sisters as it is a joyous occasion to celebrate with families and loved ones. For many, the trip back home to visit the family is what makes the celebration all the more special. As such many choose to dress for the occasion in their most cheerful and colourful Raya clothes. If you’re planning to dress in your best threads this Hari Raya, perhaps its best to complete the ensemble with a choice timepiece or two that will make the celebration all the merrier.

Pink: Arnold & Son HM Flower Special Edition

A colour often linked to warmth, compassion and hope, pink also represents sophistication and sensitivity. These are elements that the HM Flower Special Edition encapsulates well with its hand-painted mother-of-pearl dials featuring a flower in full bloom. A timepiece that is an embodiment of fine-quality watchmaking, this particular model from Arnold & Son arrives with a rose gold case and an eye-catching pink leather strap. It’s also offered in a choice of blue, green and orange, if pink isn’t quite your style.

Red: Zenith Star Watch

The symbol of strength, health and vitality, red is also a colour of attraction and is often favoured by those who want to be a centre of attention. Having a Zenith Star Watch strapped to your wrist will surely steal glances owing to its retro-chic cushion shape and its striking dial with the red and orange floral motif. Nestled within its slim 33mm case is an Elite 681 ultra-thin automatic manufacture calibre. The design of the watch is made complete with a matching red alligator strap with a gem-set buckle.

Blue: Tudor Pelagos

Always related to the sky and sea, blue is associated with calm, depth and stability. It is also a colour that represents harmony and peace. The choice for blue watches available in the market today are aplenty but the Tudor Pelagos is perhaps one that is worthy of consideration. A diver’s watch equipped with a COSC-certified Manufacture Calibre, the 42mm titanium and steel case timepiece features a beautiful blue dial with white indexes and a matching blue rubber strap making it the perfect watch to have for both work and play.

Purple: Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Calibre

Harmony, humility and spirituality are the elements commonly associated with the colour purple. It also symbolises extravagance, creativity and mystery, which are symbolic attributes of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Calibre. Powered by the RD830 automatic movement with small seconds, date and 22K pink gold oscillating weight, the timepiece features an 18K pink gold case set with 48 white diamonds. Merging sophistication and modernity, the model also features a mother of pearl dial, which is accessorized with a vibrant purple alligator strap.

Yellow: Graham Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon

A sunny disposition, vibrancy, freshness and energy are the attributes yellow projects. It’s also a colour that oozes clarity, happiness and positivity. A yellow ensemble for Raya will fit the celebrations well but you’ll certainly need a watch to match. We can’t think of anything that works better than the Graham Chronofighter Oversize Superlight Carbon with its outstanding 47mm Superlight black carbon nanotube composite case. The automatic chronograph features a black carbon dial with yellow accents and matching yellow rubber strap.

Black: IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur Chronograph Sport

A colour that is both seductive and powerful, black has an air of mystery surrounding it and is commonly associated with authority and formality. With black such an overpowering colour, it is often best to brighten it with gold or silver. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport fits this task well with its 44mm titanium case delivering a fitting contrast to the black dial with silver hands and indexes. The small seconds ‘lightning bolt’ hand at 6 o’clock, serves as a reminder of the soft-iron inner case that protects the movement from the negative influence of magnetic fields.

Green: Oris Aquis Date

The colour most associated with Hari Raya, green is also a symbol of nature and peace and is often linked to affluence and abundance. These attributes fits the Oris Aquis Date rather well. With its 39.5mm stainless steel case, the diving watch is striking in appearance thanks to its captivating green dial. Equipped with an automatic movement, the Aquis is both highly-functional and uncompromising in style, making it an ideal timepiece to match your baju Raya during the celebration.
