Black is the most advanced color in the fashion industry, it is a combination of classic, mysterious, luxury and power, it has always been the darling of the fashion industry, is the muse of fashion. In the watchmaking world, black inspires another side of the watch, and the all-black shape can highlight the mature charm of men. Today, Watch House recommends three all-black watches.

This watch is a Freak X watch from Ulysse Nardin Watches, from the case, movement cleats to the strap are made of black, pure understatement, simple and clear, although the Freak X watch has a very unique shape, but it can still handle different occasions. The case is made of titanium, the “dial” we see from the front is the movement plate, the Freak X watch shows most of the movement wheel system on the front of the watch, and replaces the role of the hands by the strip-shaped flying carose movement, Nardin Watches innovatively interprets the ancient complication of the carosin. Subversive and cool, as an old watchmaking brand, Nardin watches do not stick to tradition, Freak whimsical series is a good example. Since its birth in 2001, the Imagination watch has become a typical representative of mavericks in the watchmaking industry, and friends who like this special watch can refer to it.

This Hublot watch features black ceramic and a black rubber strap in an all-black look that showcases avant-garde style, and the round case is decorated with Hublot’s most iconic screws and a skeleton dial. The skeletonized dial presents a sophisticated mechanical structure, and the HUB1201 skeleton calibre is also quite special, with a 10-day power reserve, in order to show the power reserve function in an innovative way, the brand has developed a special watch structure, with a bridge fixed on either side of the ring that is the basis of the movement instead of the traditional dial. Hublot has always been able to capture the aesthetics of young people, and the same is true of this watch, which should not be missed by young people who like the avant-garde!
Jaquet Droz large seconds series J008030270

Domestic price: ¥174500
Case thickness: 13.79 mm
Caliber model: Jaquet Droz 2695SMR
Case material: stainless steel
Waterproof depth: 30 meters
Jaquet Droz’s large second series of watches adopts an all-black shape, but the feeling presented is completely different from the two watches above, the Vlasse de Lacés Freak X is a maverick, Hublot is avant-garde fashion, and Jaquet Droz still follows its own elegant gentleman’s style, using a black onyx dial with a black leather strap, the layout on the dial is Jaquet Droz’s signature “8” layout, the hour and minute dial is located above the dial surface, the date indicator is located below the dial surface, and the central hand is used to indicate the number of seconds. The overall design is simple, but enough to show off the brand’s character. The movement uses the 2695SMR self-winding calibre and has a power reserve of approximately 38 hours.
Black is a classic and versatile, and it’s easy to navigate no matter what style, which is one of the reasons why I also prefer black. The three black watches introduced above are all iconic watches of the brand, and under the interpretation of black, they show the toughness of men, if you have a friend who plans to buy a watch in the near future, you can refer to it.
