So much more than just a way to tell time, a woman’s watch exemplifies her style statement, personality, and pedigree almost like a piece of jewelry. While it must be functional and durable, it must also have a certain je ne sais quoi. Featuring outstanding quality, craftsmanship, and design, we give you a round-up of some of the top timepieces available that are worth the investment:
Dan Vinci Automatic IWC Schaffhausen Watch
An ode to the quintessential 1980s style, the round case with its striking lugs has re-established itself as the feature that sets the Da Vinci models apart from other IWC watch families. The stellar model boasts of an articulated strap horn to ensure that the watch fits perfectly on the wrist, while the minimalist dial with its large Arabic numerals and elegant lancet-shaped hand is classically simple. The watch is water-resistant to 3 bar and powered by the tried and tested 35111 calibers. The blue second’s hand provides a colorful contrast on the dial.
Possession 34mm Rose Gold Alligator and Diamond Piaget Watch
A stainless steel dial has never looked as elegant as in the unparalleled Possession Collection. Piaget has blurred the lines between timepieces and jewelry for over half a century – each of its watches is as beautiful in its Haute Horlogerie as it is to wear. Crafted at the Swiss atelier, this ‘Possession’ watch has a minimal silvered dial that’s framed with 18-karat rose gold and 1.55-carats of shimmering diamonds around its case and indexes. The self-interchangeable alligator straps come in black and lapis-blue.
Baume & Mercier Petite Promesse 10288 Diamond, Stainless Steel & Wraparound Leather Strap Watch
This ellipse 22 mm leather diamond watch is wonderfully suited for the woman who balances a playful spirit with an enduring ambition. It comes with a bold wrap-around blue leather strap made from fine calfskin and a polished bezel set with precious diamonds. The mother-of-pearl dial offers this timepiece an enchanting allure. It is set with two diamond indices at 6 and 12 o’clock. The Petite Promesse watch features a Swiss-made quartz movement.
Van Cleef & Arpels Charms Watch
The Charms’ timepiece collection pays homage to Van Cleef & Arpels’ iconic Alhambra jewelry collection. Introduced in 1968, Maison’s signature good-luck motif – one of the Maison’s most beloved creations – is a symbol of class and pedigree. Its round silhouette is adorned with a lucky charm that rotates to accompany the movements of the wrist. In different shades of gold, the collection reflects Maison’s jewelry expertise.
Fendi Run Away Stainless Steel & Diamond Leather-Strap Watch
A classic statement-making timepiece, the Fendi Run Away collection has created a niche for itself in the luxury gamut. With a bright red leather strap, the stainless steel, precious diamond and rose Gold PVD, the brown calfskin leather seamlessly complements the Silver-White Opalin dial.
And, if the pop of color isn’t enough, the watch has the Fendi logo on the face and is dripping in diamonds, with .48 total carat weight.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Medium 20mm Stainless Steel, Diamond, and Alligator Watch
A delicate silhouette from the time-honored Reverso collection, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One is designed to flatter the female wrist; its slimline design and blue dauphine hands are distinctive features that take their inspiration from the first 1930s Reverso ladies’ model, while up to 0.29 carat of sparkling white diamonds gives this watch a jewelry-like feel.
Chopard Happy Diamonds 32mm Watch
Since 1976, Chopard has established a strong recognition and identity by revolutionizing the watch industry with the Happy Diamonds line. For the first time, moving diamonds could be appreciated between two crystal sapphire glasses on the face of the watch. The timepieces are a stylish interpretation of Chopard’s signature moving diamonds in all their delicacy and effervescence. This 32 mm quartz watch is a masterpiece in aesthetic appeal. A single diamond rests delicately at the top and bottom of the 18-carat rose gold case, making the transition from case to richly colored burgundy strap into a statement of exquisitely simple, enduring style. The dial, with its leaf-shaped hands, is a perfect mother-of-pearl guilloché sphere and fills the center of the smaller of two concentric, diamond-set circles. Precious materials and feminine grace and charm come together in another example of iconic jewelry expertise by the brand.
