femmes-en-forme-2CHANEL is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Première line with the PREMIÈRE CAMELLIA SKELETON, interpreted in four exceptional versions. The case was designed for this limited series, as was the petal-shaped layered Haute Horlogerie movement set with 246 diamonds interpreted through four exceptional versions.

femmes-en-forme-3The tonneau-shaped case that is a firm favorite with CVSTOS appears in a feminine version for the second year running with the collection of automatic RE-BELLE watches, this time featuring hand-painted or gemset butterflies.

femmes-en-formePIAGET sees life in the pink for the 60th anniversary of its cult ALTIPLANO line, appearing here in a feminine version with an ultra-thin gemset gold case housing an exceptionally slim (2.1mm) mechanical movement.

femmes-en-forme-1VAN CLEEF & ARPELS takes the liberty of enriching its iconic CADENAS collection, released in 1935, with a pink gold model adorned with princess-cut rubies on the case and clasp. When the the power of design detracts nothing from its femininity, the aesthetic signature is unmistakably that of true talent.
