Watch Of The Day: Jacques Reboul Roman Rose St. Martin
Jacques Reboul was a brand founded in honor of a fallen friend with the same name. Jacques Reboul combines Swedish design with French attitude, resulting in one of the most unique watches I’ve ever seen.
Jacques Reboul’s Lumiere Intense Roman Rose St. Martin watch combines their trademark octagon case with traditional dial styling and rose gold highlights. The dial features Roman numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock
I absolutely love this octagon case and this combination of a white dial, rose gold, and brown leather band. It comes together for classy, stylish look that stands out through unique design.
This timepiece is powered by a Ronda 762 quartz movement, meaning it’s gonna tock and rock for years to come. For under $250, this is a high quality watch at a fair price.
For more about Jacques Reboul, here’s the story of their founder’s inspiration:
Jacques Reboul was one of the most intriguing and intelligent persons I have had the pleasure of ever meeting.
A passionate Parisian with homes both in Paris and Valbonne, France where I became a regular guest.
A profound and boundless friendship emerged between us. We worked extremely hard and travelled the world together, sharing a common vision on business and life itself. I have always been thrilled with design, going way back to when I created my first suit, a French inspired piece, timeless and cool-looking.
Jacques and I always planned building a business together, we were eagerly waiting for the right opportunity coming our way. Unfortunately, he suddenly got seriously ill and spent numerous months in hospitals. I will always remember, visiting him in that ancient hospital in the south of France, one of the best according to Jacques himself, being surprised to find him in a room resembling an office with papers and laptops far and wide rather than being a hospital bedroom – Jacques continued to work to the end.
Jacques got better – so we thought. To this day I think he planned even his last days in life, he was allowed to leave the hospital for the weekend to spend with his beautiful wife in Paris. He enjoyed a fabulous dinner, served with a bottle of Bourgogne wine, his favorite. He passed away that night to be tremendously missed. I have missed him every day since.
Jacques was passionate about his Italian cars and numerous watches – what better could I do to honor his legacy, then to design a beautiful watch in his chic and elegant style.
I know you would have wear it every day – the brand is Jacques Reboul Watches.
– Anders, Founder of Jacques Reboul Watches
