Exploring The World Of White Watches

Some colors are far more popular in the world of watches then others. Black is always a favorite, not only for straps and dials but also for watch cases, blue is very popular this year, but what about white? We are not talking here only about the color of the dial, which remains popular, but also the cases. Then white all of a sudden becomes a rarity, although some examples do exist!

Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon

One of the most prominent watches with a white case, and pretty much white everything has to be the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon. It was the answer to the Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon and features a white zirconium oxide case with a ceramic dial and bezel insert. It is quite the eyecatcher, especially with the white strap made from alligator leather.

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari White Ceramic Carbon
Creating a watch with a white case that still looks masculine is quite a feat. Hublot tackled this through their “Art of Fusion” combining a white ceramic case, with a carbon bezel and a skeletonized dial. The result is very sporty, and high octane, as this Big Bang is part of the collaboration of Hublot with Ferrari. In fact, the color combinations on this watch might serve as an inspiration when you order your next prancing horse.

Another brand that has no problem making white cased watches look masculine, is Richard Mille. Their secret is a high tech approach, with innovative materials and complications, such as with this RM 38-01 Bubba Watson. The case is crafted from white Quartz TPT, and the skeletonized movement provides a full view of the tourbillon, as well as the unique G-sensor, which measures the force of Bubba’s, or your, golf swing!

Chanel J12 Blue Light

In ladies watches, white cases are for more common these days. A pioneer in this field was Chanel, who was one of the first to use white ceramic in their J12 collection. Although quite feminine in this version, with the light blue Arabic numerals and hour indexes, this watch is in the larger diameters considered unisex.
