Snowy reflections

GMT_n49_Fra_ipad-87To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding, CENTURY has risen to the challenge of creating a sapphire crown featuring a record number of 224 facets created using the “Megalith” technique. With each flick of the wrist, the quartzdriven VIRTUOSO sets off a magnificent firework display further enhanced by the diamonds adorning the mother-of-pearl dial and those forming the floral attachments.

2016 saw CARTIER present HYPNOSE, a new quartz-powered jewelry watch collection playing with nested oval shapes creating fascinating optical illusions. Between glittering formal evenings and precious days, this dainty model radiates an immaculate glow, attired in a white gold case lit up by two rows of diamonds in gently tapering sizes.


The new GG2570 quartz collection by GUCCI associates the lucky number of the Creative Director, 25, with the brand’s iconic decade : the 1970s. It features a lightly rounded square case and a dial bearing the filigree-worked G monogram around the rim. This small steel ladies’ watch is graced with 62 diamonds on the bezel and 12 serving as hour-markers.


At FREDERIQUE CONSTANT, the case of the Delight has been enlarged to 33 mm to house a self-winding movement. This steel DELIGHT AUTOMATIC is graced with a lucky charm dial adorned with a four-leaf clover motif in its center, surrounded by silver-toned Roman numerals and diamond-set hour-markers on a motherof- pearl background.
