"La Traviata" Watch - Red
Time is of the utmost importance to Violetta Valéry, the passionate heroine of the opera La Traviata —especially when she realizes it’s running out.
Inspired by the dramatic oversized clock in the Met’s production of La Traviata, this quartz movement watch, available with a red embossed-leather band, features Violetta’s lament, “È tardi!” (“It’s too late.”).

La Traviata (“The Fallen Woman”) premiered at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice in 1853. It is one of Verdi’s most popular works, and the role of its heroine, the courtesan Violetta, is known as one of the most challenging in the soprano repertory. One of the signatures of the work is its melodic waltz tunes which evoke the Parisian high life and add an intense, yet beautiful, melancholy as Violetta’s time begins to run out.
