Gold, in the heart or on the wrist. Piaget’s unmistakable signature, the famous traditional oval watch straight out of the Sixties perpetuates the gold craftsmanship cultivated by the Maison from La Côte-aux-Fées. The bracelet which coils around the wrist like a strip of precious fabric is quite simply staggering. To create this “palace-type” décor, Piaget drew inspiration from the methods used in Haute Couture. A multitude of assembled links appear on the reverse side of the bracelet, while all that remains on the front is the appearance of a gossamer-light, sensuous golden fabric.
Dream of new horizons
Wisdom, peace and above all, discovery… The color blue is an open invitation to expand our horizons. Bringing to mind the sea or a starry seventh heaven, the shimmer of the lapis lazuli dial adorning the Lady Cruise 31 watch by Fred is instantly captivating. A few touches of diamonds on the steel case and a cabochon sapphire on the crown bring a surging ocean of elegance to the wrist.
Stand out from the crowd
Supreme sophistication is a well-kept secret that Cartier reveals with a cuff bracelet. Shot with lightning, on the frontier between blue and green, a superb 51.13-carat cabochon adorns the Aten High Jewelry secret hour watch and acts as a lucky charm. A thousand hours went into setting the 470 brilliant-cut and 50 baguette-cut diamonds which, by means of a skillfully hidden sliding door, reveal precious time on the dial in the center of the cuff.
Legend has it that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. And what is that were true ? Jacob & Co joyfully brings its colors to the wrist. Surrounded by a halo of different shades consisting of 48 multi-colored, baguette cut sapphires, the Brilliant Rainbow watch is an excellent mechanical elixir against winter blues. In addition to the setting of the crown, the 44mm watch presents a silky mother-of-pearl dial also enhanced with colored sapphires and diamonds. A chance to see life in glorious Technicolor…
Remain true to your friends
Marilyn Monroe was right : diamonds are unquestionably a girl’s best friend ! So it is without the slightest guilt or moderation that we wear them on our wrists. With its Majestic watch from the Acte V The Escape collection, Louis Vuitton exalts the wonderful colors of the opal with a shower of 678 diamonds set on the dial and bracelet. With 14.55 carats, this particular friendship is more precious than ever.
Flaunt your personality
A watch is declaration of style, an indication of taste, a personal preference for a color or shape. Because everyone is unique, Jaquet Droz creates unique watches mirroring the personality of those who wear them. An engraving, an enameled dial, a painting or a miniature sculpture, a dial adorned using the technique of paillonage or embellished with exceptional rocks and minerals, all contribute to pushing bespoke creativity to its ultimate limits. Anything, or nearly anything, goes, providing one is prepared to carry it off…
You never show up where you’re expected and much prefer to remain unpredictable ! de GRISOGONO embodies this determined mindset with the New Retro Lady. Mid-way between contemporary audacity and 1950s classic design, a large, understated rectangle appears cloaked in precious stones. The radiant glow of diamonds, rubies, emeralds or sapphires lights up the matching galuchat strap, while the 12 o’clock crown and the eminently legible gem-set dial heighten the originality of this model with its mechanical heart. Neither the dictates of fashion nor the seemingly inexorable flow of fleeting trends will ever push you anywhere you don’t wish to go.
