STAFF PICKS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY: JAS

With Valentine’s Day a week after Chinese New Year, it seems we’re destined for a red Valentine’s this year. One of the hardest questions on the minds of couples during Valentine’s would be, “What should I get for him or her?”

One who is quick to share his views is Jas. Jas (short form for Jasmin) joined the Red Army Watches family in April 2014. His jovial and casual demeanor makes him approachable and likeable. His infectious smile and laughter form his weapon of choice when it comes to breaking the ice with customers. A lover of comics, sneakers and Japanese culture, Jas spends his free time reading and drawing comics, trawling the Internet for the latest sneaker releases or reading and understanding more about the Japanese culture. With his maiden trip to Japan coming up this March, it only means more research for him.

We caught up with Jas to share his recommendation for Valentine’s Day.

Which pairing from Red Army Watches would you pick for couples this Valentine’s Day? 

“I’d go with the Junkers Black Bauhaus ETA and the Junkers Black Lady Bauhaus. Of course there are other selections in mind but when it comes to design similarity, this is one of the standout pairings for me in the shops. The minimalistic Bauhaus design sets the tone for the watch. I was contemplating between the cream and black dial model but I went with the black dial in the end as I felt that it is more suited to modern tastes.

The Men’s Bauhaus is powered by the reliable Swiss automatic ETA 2824-2. Its slim profile allows the watch to slip comfortably under a shirt cuff. The Lady Bauhaus is elegantly paired with a satin finished strap. It is a classy addition that gives it a feminine touch and one that will please the special lady in your life.”
