Corum Bubble Royal Flush
In terms of Flush, a Royal Flush is a special occasion and Corum aptly depicts it on the dial of their special edition watch – The Corum Bubble Royal Flush. The cards follow suit and has an Ace on the top. The suit of hearts is specially chosen to depict the player’s love for the game. The seconds hand features a dollar sign acting as a reminder to the player about the stakes involved in the game. The cards are available in two cases, stainless steel and 18K rose gold. A version with diamonds is also available and the strap used is Black Alligator. The hour and minute indicators are skeletonized and make time viewing very easy and legible. Also credit should be given to the signature dome-shaped sapphire crystal that acts a magnifier of the dial. The watch is water resistant up to 200 meters and has a diameter of 45 mm.

Here is a watch that gives you the freedom to roam around with your very own Roulette wheel. Azimuth Roulette is a sure crowd puller for the fact that its dial features a working Roulette wheel. The crown is designed to resemble a dice and once pushed, the white ball in the wheel starts spinning and stops randomly at any of the numbers. Fascinating indeed! Apart from this, the watch has a spinning roulette wheel's spinning handle as the seconds indicator and fairly skeletonized minute and hour indicators making viewing time legible. The entire wheel is housed in a 35 mm x 55 mm stainless steel case and is shaped according to the wrist’s delineation. It has a perforated leather strap with contrasting orange stitching on the edges. Place your bets before this dicey watch lands into someone else’s kitty.
Azimuth Round-1 BACCARA is the latest ante to the anthology of Azimuth’s gaming-inspired timepieces. It’s a brain-child from the inventors of the successful Azimuth SP-1 Roulette. A fully operational scaled-down model of Baccara game plays on your wrist with a remarkably sublime timekeeping mechanism. The idea is based in four possible events in the game, ‘player’, ‘banker’, ‘pair’ and ‘tie’, and uses an Azimuth modified set of linkages that allows the pointer to stop recklessly at either of these outcomes when the push button incorporated in the winding crown is pressed. Azimuth launched the watch in six elegant variants, – a top tier, mid-tier and entry-level model featuring in both "him” and "her” with a more graceful, female version. The grand range of the Round-1 Baccarat flashes a diamond studded case and more than 1,100 VVS Top Wesselton diamonds embellished on the dial for a total close to 7 carats. The mid-tier and entry-level model boasts of a mother-of-pearl face and a flaunting bezel set with 206 black and white diamonds weighing 1.2 carats, which is absent in the latter. So if you are "all classy and game” this is the watch for you.
If you have the "license to play” and your idea of a rendezvous is with Poker then the Perrelet Turbine Poker watch is a perfect jewel. Perrelet has a distinct idea of the game exploring possibilities integrated with their well-known Turbine version double rotor watches. It’s an "all play” watch where the cards play a hide and seek as the characteristic 12-blade rotor is in continuous motion due to the wrist movements. The watch is offered in three variants featuring two and a half hands of poker. The Turbine poker is cased in a 44 mm DLC coated highly scratch resistant blackened steel with the crown recessed into the case edge. It is a certain novelty, may be not for every wrist but the right one knows "it’s worth the gamble”.

Bell & Ross BR 01 Casino Watch
Bell & Ross bring the two extremely different worlds of aviation and gambling together with the BR 01 Casino Watch and have released it as a part of their "Instrument Series” despite the fact that the watch is based on a game. The watches in this collection are inspired by the non-timing instruments in a plane’s cockpit. In contrast to similar watches based on games that allow you to play with the watch, the Casino Watch uses the roulette wheel to tell time. The dial has three discs, the outermost disc indicates minutes through the green ‘0’ indicator, the middle disc with the white ball (the indicator) shows hours and the innermost disc that resembles a spinning roulette wheel's spinning handle indicates seconds. Although it’s a not a cakewalk to read time on this watch but it becomes legible given the aim of the watch. The diameter of the watch is 46 mm and the case is made of PVD Black steel.
