Red is an interesting color when it comes to menswear. It’s definitely eye-catching, but often an acceptable color for accessories even in professional fashion situations (some even advise you to wear a red tie to interviews to make you more memorable!).
For those of you looking for a striking timepiece, we’ve rounded up the five best red face watches.
Red watches are definitely more unconventional than red ties or socks. Still, you’d be surprised how much energy they can bring to your look!
Five Watches with Red Dials
But first, let’s check out these red face watches, listed here from the most affordable to high-end!
- Orient Kanno RA-AA0915R19B
- Seiko Presage SRPE41
- Jazzmaster Thinline Automatic H38525771
- Tudor Fastrider Chronograph
- Omega Racing Speedmaster
Red is actually a sensible color for tools watches, since they’re supposed to be conspicuously legible, and that’s exactly the case with this Orient dive watch. The shade is somewhere between a primary red and a dark crimson, which comes together sophisticatedly beneath the applied indices and sword hands. Of course, it runs on a fully automatic movement and is equipped with 200 meters of water resistance.
This exquisite dial on this dress watch is surprisingly understated since the deep red is gradated with darker edges. The pressed pattern and gloss finish perfectly complement the silver Arabic numerals, while the hacking 4R35 caliber can be admired through the watch’s exhibition caseback.
This classy timepiece is known for somehow managing to fit its Swiss ETA automatic movement into a super-thin 8.45mm high case. As such, this traditionally slim dress watch fits comfortably on most wrists. The maroon sunburst dial is silky and lustrous at every angle, and is enhanced by luminous silver-tone dauphine hands.
The Fastrider is available in a few colorways, but the red dial version really pops next to the fade-proof ceramic tachymeter bezel and dauphine hands. Its powerful aesthetic matches its 27-jewel Swiss chronograph movement. This timepiece is the perfect example of how even the most on-template tool watch can be made unique with a color change.
This Speedmaster leans hard into its racing routes, compared to most Speedy references that mainly focus on its space heritage. The black subdials are adorned with a diamond tread plate, which gives the lively red dial a slight industrial feel, all protected by a pressure-resistant domed sapphire. And since this is Omega, it’s powered by a co-axial caliber that boasts greater accuracy over time.
Which Red Dial Watch Will You Get?
A red face watch is an effective way to make your outfit stand out, without going overboard on the clothing choices themselves.
It’s not the most traditional dial color, but it definitely adds flair!
