Luxurious or snobbish, subdued or brash, a sign of success or status. Rolls Royce means a lot of different things depending on the person. Want it to match the color of your Louis Vuitton purse? No problem. Prefer to have a one of a kind piece of artwork that reminds you of your last trip to Japan in the dash? Done yesterday. If I remember correctly, the average Rolls Royce owner has twelve (TWELVE!) other cars in their collection. For the privileged few who own a Rolls it is as part of your outfit as the shoes you choose. Now for the fun; what would I have on my wrist if I owned a Rolls? Let me know on social media what you would choose as well. Have fun with it. For starters, there are millions of ways I could have a Rolls, so I have to narrow it down. Let’s go black. After all, black goes with everything, right?

Almost every brand offers a take on the all-black watch, but let’s face the facts: the battle is over and the king has been crowned. For those who do not yet know about Vantablack, it is a material that absorbs 99.965% of all light that hits it. For a little history on the material, check out this Wikipedia page. If you are after a black watch, you can’t get darker than this.
The Rolls Royce Phantom comes with something called the Phantom Gallery. It is a large portion of the front dash that can be customized to high heaven by the purchaser. Something tells me a bit of silver or gold artwork over a Vantablack background would look stunning! Check out some examples of what you can do in this gallery.
The watch is powered by the HMC 804 Automatic caliber with an in-house double hairspring. That double hairspring, coupled with the tourbillon, should improve accuracy by countering gravity even further, as well as improving isochronism. It also has a nice power reserve of 72 hrs. All in all, it’s more than just a pretty piece. H. Moser saw to it that there was more going for it than just an attention grabber, much like a Rolls Royce.
Rolls Royce is renowned for having one of the smoothest and most quiet rides in the world. They call it the Magic Carpet Ride. My point is, both the watch and the car are about more than just the looks. This, dear reader, is why I would pair these two together.
Now it’s your turn. What kind of Rolls Royce would you choose and what watch would go with it? Let me know in the comments or on our social media pages! Here is an awesome read on the H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Tourbillon Concept VantaBlack
