Round-UpModern-Day ‘Bridgerton’—Exquisite Timepieces That The Characters Would Wear Today

Dearest gentle readers, the much-awaited second half of Bridgerton’s third season releases today on Netflix… Perfectly timed for us to present a list of luxury watches that the ‘ton’ would wear in 2024

May We Recommend

The popular period-drama series, Bridgerton is back again with its highly-anticipated third season, delivering swoon-worthy romance, toe-curling saucy scenes, and of course, dramatic revelations. Set in Regency era London, the series deals with the complexities of high-society rules and power struggles, with the Bridgerton family—comprising eight close-knit siblings—at the heart of it. After the successful debut of its first two seasons in 2020 and 2022, the series has returned with its third season this year. While the first four episodes of the season were released in May 2024—revolving around the blossoming romance between the leading characters, Penelope Featherington aka Lady Whistledown (played by actor Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton)—the second half is coming out today. In the first half, Bridgerton proposes to Featherington, hinting at the beginning of a passionate love story, however, it is speculated that the second half will likely deal with Featherington disclosing her identity as Lady Whistledown, giving way to complications. While it still needs to be seen whether the couple will survive these challenging circumstances, we are certain that the second half of the third season will be worth the wait.

One of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the series is its characters with distinct personalities. While Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) is a non-conformist who operates on sharp wit and a deadly dose of sarcasm, Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) is a self-made, well-respected woman who fought her way to the top. These characters and their traits prompted us to wonder, what contemporary timepieces would they wear today? To answer that question, we made a list of watches that are in perfect alignment with their unique personalities. Keep reading to find out more.

The youngest of the Featherington sisters, Penelope is one of the most prominent characters in the series. Curious, passionate, and warm-hearted, she often prefers books over the company of others, and likes keeping to herself at promenades and ballrooms. Not to forget, she also maintains a secret identity as Lady Whistledown, delivering high-society gossips and scandals to the people of the ‘ton’. Understated at first glance, Featherington has more to offer than meets the eye, just like the H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept, featuring Vantablack—the blackest black in the world. This timepiece is a classic dress watch, powered by the HMC 200 automatic calibre with an engraved gold oscillating weight, visible via the see-through caseback. This mechanism features the bi-directional pawl winding system with the Straumann Double Hairspring with a flat overcoil—a complicated mechanism working discreetly, just like Penelope as Lady Whistledown.

The rule-breaker of the Bridgerton family, Eloise is a rebel with a sharp wit, who doesn’t dream of being courted by men like her contemporaries. Instead, she spends time reading books and indulging in meaningful conversations. A non-conformist in every sense of the word, Eloise would look good in the Hublot Big Bang Gold White Diamonds watch. An avant-garde Swiss brand, Hublot were the first to use a natural rubber strap in their watch and to popularise large cases with the advent of the Big Bang collection, thus forging a unique path for themselves, similar to Eloise. The 38mm rose-gold model comes in the brand’s distinct porthole shape (Hublot means porthole in French) featuring a diamond-studded bezel. It’s run by a quartz movement and is water-resistant to 100m.

With a sensitive demeanour and a charming personality, Benedict Bridgerton is the second eldest of the siblings, who often gravitates towards creative pursuits and dreams of becoming an artist. A watch that is an ideal pair to his creative (and wild) side is the 45mm Jacob & Co Caligula Stainless Steel. Named after the 1979 erotic movie, Caligula, this minimalistic timepiece with grey tones features a guilloche dial and concealed erotic art. This is brought to life by a second crown at four o’clock, when it is wound to the maximum. This brilliant artistic feat is achieved by the JCAA07 automatic movement that supplies the watch with a power reserve of at least 48 hours.

The sixth child of the family, Francesca Bridgerton plays one of the leading roles in the third season, making a promising debut to become the Queen’s ‘Diamond of the Season’. An introvert with a flair for music, the ideal pick for Francesca is the Raymond Weil Maestro watch (the collection that was launched to pay tribute to classical music).

Its 40mm stainless steel and yellow-gold PVD case houses an automatic movement, and offers a water resistance of up to 50m.
