Blancpain Ladybird Colors

Blancpain presents Ladybird Colors as a tribute to an iconic ladies’ watch from the Swiss watch manufacture.

Introduced in 1956, the Ladybird watch revolutionised watchmaking by offering the world the smallest round movement of its era. This brilliant achievement was the initiative of an audacious duo, Betty Fiechter and her nephew Jean-Jacques Fiechter. Their vision and talents resulted in numerous triumphs while jointly running the Manufacture, including several ladies’ models and the first modern diver’s watch: the Fifty Fathoms launched in 1953.

Blancpain Ladybird Colors

The white mother-of-pearl dial of the new Ladybird Colors watch is adorned with slightly rounded applied gold Arabic numerals, sized to form an asymmetrical hour circle crowned by the number 12. A band of diamonds highlights the hour-markers while embracing the hands, those displaying the hours and minutes are shaped like hollowed-out sage leaves – a signature Blancpain attribute.

The red or white gold case has also been carefully designed to guarantee harmonious proportions. Its 34.9 mm diameter ensures a generous display of the watch’s finery, while at the same time offering flexibility and adjusting to a wide range of wrists.

It is further distinguished by a bezel, lugs and crown set with 59 diamonds totalling over 2 carats. A true jewellery watch, the Ladybird Colors features high-end gem-setting in which each parameter is meticulously hand-crafted. This watch has a rose-cut diamond fitted on the crown.

The demanding level of finishing applied to the dial and case of the Ladybird Colors is reflected in its movement, in-house Calibre 1153, which is renowned for its slenderness and its generous four-day power reserve, as well as its silicon balance spring.

Rich in both structure and contrasts, it combines a circular-grained mainplate with chamfered, satin-brushed bridges adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif. The exclusive open-worked gold oscillating weight matches the circular patterns of the watch face.

Specifically developed to meet the wishes and expectations of contemporary women, the Ladybird Colors is available in seven colourful case and strap combinations.

According to personal preference, the red gold model is available with a choice of peacock green, midnight blue or satin-white alligator leather strap, while the white gold version can be paired with a lemon yellow, tangerine orange, lilac or satin-white alligator leather strap. Each wristband is fitted with a gold pin buckle or folding clasp set with nine diamonds.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Automatic Reference 5268/200R-001

Patek Philippe presents a new Aquanaut Luce automatic watch with a larger diameter case and a new integrated matt-white strap.

The Aquanaut Luce with a self-winding mechanical movement was launched in 2010 by a rose-gold model with a chocolate brown dial and strap (5068R-001), joined in 2013 by a version in white (5068R-010).  The new model released in 2021 features a 38.8 mm diameter (up from the previous 35.6 mm) case on an integrated strap that continues the visual harmony of the design.

The rose-gold case, water-resistant to 120 m, contrasts the polished finish on its flat surfaces with a satin-brushed finish on the flanks. The emblematic rounded octagonal bezel has a polished beveled edge and sparkles with 48 Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~1.11 ct) set with textbook precision.

A dial in matt white with the embossed Aquanaut motif forms a luxurious backdrop to rose-gold applied Arabic numerals and rose-gold baton-style hour and minute hands with a luminescent coating. A slender rose-gilt sweep-seconds hand completes the time display, while the date appears in an aperture at 3 o’clock.

This sporty, elegant timepiece is powered by the caliber 26-330 S C self-winding movement. Introduced in 2019, this caliber is endowed with a number of technical innovations and optimizations (two of which are patented) relating particularly to the winding system.

The presence of a stop-seconds device, which stops the balance when the crown is pulled out, enables the user to set the time to the second. A sapphire-crystal back reveals the movement’s architecture and flawless hand-finish.

The watch is worn on an integrated matt-white strap made of an ultra-resistant composite material with a patented fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches. The new Aquanaut Luce Reference 5268/200R-001 replaces the two previous 5068 references in the collection.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Quartz in Steel, References 5267/200A-001, 5267/200A-010 and 5267/200A-011

Aquanaut Luce, the modern, sporty chic watch collection from Patek Philippe, has enjoyed outstanding success with women since its induction. The Geneva manufacture is now revisiting the original design of 2004 in a new generation of quartz-powered models in steel.

Since its launch in 2004, the ladies’ quartz-driven Aquanaut Luce in steel Reference 5067 has appeared in a range of colors (including black, safari brown, pearly white and blue-gray).

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Quartz in Steel, Reference 5267/200A-001

Patek Philippe is giving fresh allure to this flagship model of modern sporty chic by endowing it with an enlarged diameter of 38.8 mm (previously 35.6 mm) and an integrated strap whose contours follow the curvature of the case and the lugs. From now on a new, larger case and an integrated strap will equip every Aquanaut Luce (except the Haute Joaillerie models).

The new Aquanaut Luce Reference 5267/200A comes with matching dial and strap in a choice of three colors: black (5267/200A-001), matt white (5267/200A-010) and khaki green (5267/200A-011).

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Quartz in Steel, Reference 5267/200A-011

This new shade of khaki green is identical to the color introduced on the men’s Aquanaut Reference 5168G-010 in 2019 and seen this year on the new Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968G-010. It is also a nod to the original model of 2004, “Adventurous Khaki”, a slightly different shade.

The dials are remarkable for their blend of sportiness and refinement. Their embossed Aquanaut decoration throws into relief the white-gold applied Arabic numerals and the large white-gold baton-style hands with their luminescent coating. On the model with a matt-white dial (5267/200A-010) black numerals and a date printed in white on a black ground in the aperture at 3 o’clock strengthen the legibility. The steel case is adorned with a polished finish on the flat surfaces and a satin-brushed finish on the flanks.

Water-resistant to 120 m, notably thanks to its screw-down crown, it houses a Patek Philippe caliber E 23-250 S C quartz movement finished with the same meticulous care as the manufacture’s mechanical movements. The bezel has polished beveled edges and is lit by a circle of 48 round-cut Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~1.11 ct).

The integrated strap made of an ultra-resistant composite material features a patented fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches. The new Aquanaut Luce References 5267/200A replace all the previous Reference 5067 models.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R-001

To create this Aquanaut Luce traveller’s watch for women, Patek Philippe drew inspiration from the manufacture’s ingenious Travel Time dual-time-zone mechanism.

This exclusive system is already a feature of the men’s Aquanaut Reference 5164, where two push-pieces on the left flank of the case set the local time. But to retain all the elegance and finesse that women love in the Aquanaut Luce, the manufacture reinterpreted this useful, user-friendly function to incorporate two innovations: a new quartz movement with a dual-time-zone function, caliber E 23-250 S FUS 24H, and a discreet, practical setting system via the winding crown.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R-001
Image Credit: Patek Philippe SA

This device required that the electronic movement be fitted with a dual time-zone mechanism similar to those that equip all Patek Philippe’s World Time and Travel Time watches, but controlled here by the clutch-pinion that activates hand-setting, rather than by pushers. The new quartz caliber is finished with same meticulous care as the manufacture’s mechanical movements.

The new Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R has two central hour hands – a skeletonized hand for home time and a solid hand for local time. When its owner changes time zones, the hour hand for local time may be set forwards or backwards by increments of one hour using the crown pulled out to the intermediate position, without this affecting the rate accuracy of the movement.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R-001
Image Credit: Patek Philippe SA

During the time spent abroad, the skeletonized hand will continue to display home time, coupled with the day/night indicator at 6 o’clock. The Travel Time’s dual-time-zone system can also be used to display the time in another longitude.

When the watch’s owner remains at home or no longer needs a second time zone, the two hour hands can be superposed to become a single hand, using the winding crown. In this way, the Aquanaut Luce Travel Time offers two watches in one: a casually elegant model for all occasions, transformable in an instant into a dual-time-zone watch for those who travel and communicate far and wide.

The rose-gold 38.8 mm case, equipped with a non-screw-down crown (to make using the Travel Time function practical and unobtrusive) is water-resistant to 60 m. Its contrasting polished and satin-brushed finishes complement a matt-white dial and a matching strap. The Aquanaut Luce’s chic, sporty personality gains extra sparkle from a bezel edged with a polished bevel and set with 48 Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~1.11 ct).

The dial presents an embossed Aquanaut motif beneath rose-gold applied numerals and rose-gold baton-style hands, the solid hands with a luminescent coating. The integrated white composite-material strap has a patented fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches.

Bvlgari Divas’ Dream New Models: Malachite (reference 103521) and Lapis Lazuli (reference 103574)

During the GENEVA WATCH DAYS 2021 exhibition, Bvlgari unveiled two new Divas’ Dream watch models that combine the soft tones of rose gold with the green of malachite and the blue of lapis lazuli.

Bvlgari Divas’ Dream Malachite, reference 103521

The two new Divas’ Dreams are very Roman in style with the flowing style of their comfortable bracelet, composed of precious fan-shaped links. Set alternately, they offer a new vision imbued with seductive glamour while offering a constant reminder of the Caracalla mosaics.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica

The Divina Mosaica collection offers high-jewellery wristwatches inspired by the roots of Bvlgari, the iconic Maison based in Rome. The Baths of Caracalla and its fan-paved floors are the major cultural icons of this historical city. To adorn full-set dials of the three new Divina Mosaica models, Bvlgari has utilized a motif inspired by the pattern of mosaics in the Baths of Caracalla.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater, reference 103497

Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater beats to the rhythm of the world’s thinnest striking movement. This high-jewellery watch features a 37 mm-diameter white gold case made by the jewellers of the Roman Maison.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater, reference 103497

The Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater chimes a crystal-clear melody on demand by activating the dedicated slide in the form of a gem-set lucky charm. The voluptuously curved lugs are accentuated by brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds. Demonstrating impeccable craftsmanship and elegance, its mosaic pattern dial is set with brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica time only watches

As of now, the Divina Mosaica collection is also offering two time-only variants. Both models highlight the fan motif in a variety of colours, with a dial alternating between baguette-cut gems such as diamonds and green tsavorites or pink sapphires. The case, bezel and lugs mirror this aesthetic, also alternating between these two colour combinations.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph, Pink Gold Version with Amethyst-set Bezel and Purple Dial

Audemars Piguet has launched new Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph in 38mm that will be available solely in Audemars Piguet boutiques. For the first time, the Manufacture is offering a solid 18-carat pink gold timepiece with a bezel that has been set with an array of baguette-cut amethysts. These purple gemstones surround and match the tones of the timepiece’s purple dial to perfection.

This new reference, combining pink gold and purple tones, expands the Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph 38 mm range that was first unveiled by the Manufacture in 2019. Both elegant and stylish, its pink gold case and bracelet feature alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces that are the signature of Audemars Piguet.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph, Pink Gold Version with Amethyst-set Bezel and Purple Dial

The case houses the self-winding Calibre 2385 with the following functions: chronograph, hours, minutes, small seconds and date, while the pink gold caseback has been finished with a sand-blasted and satin-finished decoration and features a “Royal Oak” engraving.

The purple dial has been decorated with a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, offering an unprecedented colour-changing effect akin to that of a chameleon – a first for the Manufacture. This is achieved thanks to a new colour treatment that consists of applying multiple layers of purple PVD to the dial. The tones range from pink to purple, passing by all the different nuances of blue, depending on the angle of the watch and the play of light.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph, Pink Gold Version with Amethyst-set Bezel and Purple Dial

The dial is completed by three chronograph counters, also in purple. The 18-carat pink gold applied hour-markers and the Royal Oak hands are designed to match the case and bracelet, providing an enchanting contrast with the colour of the dial.

The bezel of this new chronograph is set with 32 baguette-cut amethysts (~2.85 carats) which harmoniously blend with the purple chameleon dial. This is the first time that the Manufacture presents a bezel entirely set with purple gemstones.

Hermès Galop d’Hermès New Models

Introduced in 2019, the Galop d’Hermès watch revisits the equestrian codes of the Maison with its stirrup inspired curve and appears in a new small-sized gold or steel interpretation. Galop d’Hermès was born from the detailed observations of Californian designer Ini Archibong, who immersed himself in the Hermès Conservatory of Creations.

Closely bound up with the Mai son’s equestr ian reper toire, Galop d’Hermès morphs into a jewellery watch, lending its stirrup-like silhouette to three new Small Models (20 x 27.2 mm): one in non-gem set steel and two others in steel or rose gold adorned with 134 diamonds.

Its curved case with its softened angles frames a generous dial punctuated by variously sized Arabic numerals. These are larger on the lower part of the display, expressing a sense of movement and perspective.

Vividly evoking the speed and freedom of galloping, the progressive font – powdered and finely accentuated by touches of anthracite stands out against a sandblasted background, while the hands sweep gently over a smooth opalescent surface. In a final nod to the world of horses, the 8 o’clock numeral forms the shape of an inverted stirrup.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

The new Miss Audrey Sweet Art watch from BOVET 1822 uses a completely new material and a new process to create a dial that has never been seen before in watchmaking.

Representing sweetness and purity, the sugar crystals covering the dial of the Miss Audrey Sweet Art represents a breakthrough in engineering innovation, materials, and miniature painting – all hallmarks of the House of BOVET.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

Its eye-catching dial captures the sweetness of love and the purity of a child’s carefree desire for confections The process of producing this dial is extraordinarily complex. First, the pure sugar crystals are prepared so their structure will not change when exposed to light or heat. Then the sweet crystals are chosen for size, then combined with special paints and hand-applied to the dial by one of BOVET’s miniature painting artisans. This demanding process, protected by a patent, leaves no room for error.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

Thanks to its artisanal and hand-made nature, each and every dial is in effect a piece unique. A variety of colors are available, including solid hues as well as gradients.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

The result is an intriguing mix of texture and sparkle, unlike any other dial ever produced in the watchmaking industry.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

Both whimsical and romantic, the uniquely shaped hands of the Sweet Art form a beautiful heart once every hour, as the minute hand catches up to the hour hand.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

The Miss Audrey BOVET 1822 model was the winner of the Ladies’ Watch category of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2020.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

The signature 36mm Fleurier Amadéo® convertible case is available in stainless steel hand-set with sparkling white diamonds. The unique and patented Amadéo® case can be transformed into a wristwatch, table clock, or pendant all without the use of any tool.

BOVET 1822 Miss Audrey Sweet Art

Powering the Miss Audrey Sweet Art is an automatic movement, which drives hour and minutes positioned at the centre of the sugar crystal dial. This movement has a power reserve of 42 hours.

Longines evidenza Automatic New Models with Sea Green and Silver Dials

Longines has expanded its “Art Deco” inspired evidenza watch collection by unveiling a new ladies’ automatic model with new sea green or silver dials, plus matching leather straps and a supple steel bracelet.

Longines evidenza Automatic New Models with Sea Green and Silver Dials

The sea green and silver colours respectively evoke sea spray and the open sea. The differentiated treatment of the dials is the signature of this special 2021 version: matt in the centre – with a reprise of the typical “tonneau”-shaped case – and sun ray on the outside.

Longines evidenza Automatic New Models with Sea Green and Silver Dials

The dials thus acquire another dimension, enhanced by the hour circle painted with slender, elongated Roman numerals. The crown is adorned with a blue aluminium ring that gives the case a rhythm that is visually fresh.

Finally, the Longines evidenza comes with sea green and blue leather straps, with the additional option of a supple steel bracelet with triple-security folding clasp.

Longines evidenza Automatic New Models with Sea Green and Silver Dials

The new Longines evidenza watch is equipped with Calibre L592 (ETA A20.L11), a 22-jewel self-winding movement with a power reserve of 45 hours. It drives hour, minute, seconds and date functions.

REBELLION PREDATOR S 3 HANDS RAINBOW

The REBELLION Predator S Black Rainbow watch combines the best of sportsmanship from Rebellion Timepieces’ experience in car racing with the meticulous expertise of fine jewellery.

This new women’s watch features a powerful design, enhanced by the magic of precious stones. On the bezel, 32 baguette-cut sapphires with a total weight of 3.5 carats illuminate the dial, which is adorned with a honeycomb motif inspired by sports car grilles. The intense colour of the sapphires creates a perfect contrast with the technical case, in black DLC titanium, 42mm in diameter.

REBELLION PREDATOR S 3 HANDS RAINBOW

The hour and minute hands are coated with luminescent material and point to discreet matching indices, making time keeping a beautifully colourful experience under all light conditions. The central second hand features a counterweight in the shape of the Rebellion Timepieces logo.

REBELLION PREDATOR S 3 HANDS RAINBOW

The Predator S Black Rainbow watch also features a date display at 3 o’clock. All this time information is powered by a Swiss Made self-winding mechanical movement that gives the Predator S Black Rainbow 48 hours of power reserve.

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Smalta Clara Hummingbird Limited Edition

With this artistic timepiece, Jaquet Droz demonstrates its mastery of the ancestral plique-à-jour enameling technique which first appeared 1500 years ago. This ladies’ wristwatch features a diamond-set gold case.

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Smalta Clara Hummingbird Limited Edition

Different to the art of cloisonné or champlevé, the plique-à-jour enamelling technique consists of applying the enamel to bottomless molds. A gold dial with partitions of different shapes and sizes is created.

Each empty space is filled with different colors of enamel before undergoing several successive firings. Each passage in the oven gives the enamel its color and density. Just like a miniature stained-glass window, this plique-à-jour process results in a perfectly transparent enamel which plays with light, shadows and reflections, and which gives the motif featured as much volume as it does life. Crafted using this decorative motif, the hummingbird on the white gold dial boasts a subtle gradient of green.

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Smalta Clara Hummingbird Limited Edition

Jaquet Droz created no less than seven different shades to express its summery and joyful vision of this famous bird. By choosing the Petite Heure Minute as its canvas and with an off-centered dial at two o’clock, the House offers the hummingbird a large space where it can express the richness of its tones and the virtuosity of the plique-à-jour (smalta clara in Latin).

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Smalta Clara Hummingbird Limited Edition

The self-winding movement featuring platinum oscillating weight with 18-karat red gold applique is visible through the sapphire crystal window on the case-back side.

Part of a numerus clausus limited edition of only eight pieces, this 18-carat red gold watch is set with 100 diamonds on the bezel and pallet lugs. It features a white mother-of-pearl subdial with 18 carat red gold hour and minute hands. Measuring 35 mm, the case sits on a hand-embroidered green satin strap.

Baume & Mercier Hampton New References (10628/10629/10630/10631)

Baume & Mercier Hampton is a famous watch with a rectangular case that was unconventional and avant-garde when it was launched. It was designed in tribute to Art Deco, the famous artistic movement of the early 20th century. This year, the Swiss luxury brand reveals four new Hampton watches, offering a procession of materials, shapes, contrasts and colors, featuring a broad variety of interchangeable straps to suit every whim.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631
Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631

The Art Deco elements remain distinctive, yet they blend into each piece, allowing them to be personalized and adapted on a whim. The new Hamptons feature a small case equipped with a long-lasting quartz movement and a solid case back.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

This refined watch features a red agate, set into the cabochon-shaped crown. This semi-precious stone is known for its grounding properties, providing stability, harmony and relief.

The small watch case in polished 18K pink gold asserts its finesse with a titanium back that protects the long-lasting quartz movement. The grained texture of the opaline silver dial adds a soft, slight contrast.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

The domed sapphire crystal allows the light to filter between the gold-tone hands, revealing the Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock, as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes in a matching gold tone. The gray minute track discreetly emphasizes the rectangular shape characteristic of the Hampton watches.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

The tone-on-tone overstitched orange calfskin strap brings out the beauty of the gold case. As in the other pieces from the collection, a straight spring-bar system makes it possible to change the supple strap easily, on a whim.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

This Hampton watch by Baume & Mercier reveals a synthetic blue spinel set into its delicate cabochon-shaped crown.

The polished steel case brings the piece a contemporary character. Its small size, 35 x 22.2 mm, 6.9 mm thickness, and finesse, make it a delightful, airy watch to wear. Its wrap-around strap lightly embraces the wrist and fastens with a delicate pin buckle.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

Its domed sapphire crystal is a subtle reference to the rounded curves characteristic of Art Deco. The grained texture of the opaline silver dial accentuates the shape of the case, of which the concentric rectangular designs create an illusion of depth.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

The dial features Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes, creating a perfect symmetry for the “glaive” hands that gracefully sweep along them. Its edge is adorned with a midnight blue minute track which coordinates with the hue of the calfskin strap topped with Art Deco designs.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

This slightly offbeat model offers a contemporary interpretation of the Hampton collection. A black agate is set into the cabochon-shaped crown. The virtues of this stone include focusing scattered energies and providing stability and self-confidence.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

This variation is based on the same rectangular polished steel case and has the same finesse, but the effect is very different. The rectangle, echoed several times on the dial by a sun satin-finished opaline green, provides the ultimate geometric Art Deco effect. Its look is enhanced by a double minute track in frosted silver.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

Its shine brings an unprecedented depth to what remains a streamlined piece. Riveted rhodium-plated digits and indexes add the watchmaker’s touch. The black canvas strap emphasizes the true uniqueness of this watch, far from traditional codes. However, it is possible to mount the watch case on a metal or calfskin strap, since the interchangeability system is available on all the collection’s pieces.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631

This diamond-set Hampton model features a cabochon-shaped crown, which is set with a green chrysoprase stone. The polished steel case is featured here in its small version, 35×22.2 mm. Fine, feminine and graceful. As an ultimate touch of refinement, each side of the case is set with a total of 28 diamonds, which extend down to elegantly emphasize its rounded horns.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 1063

The grained opaline silver dial features Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes, creating a perfect symmetry for the “glaive” hands that gracefully sweep around them. A gray minute track runs around the edge for a more understated look.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631 watch case back

The watch is presented with an integrated three-row strap in polished / satin-finished steel topped with a triple folding clasp.

Louis Vuitton Vivienne Bijou Secret

Vivienne is an emblematic mascot of Louis Vuitton. Having already made appearances across the luxury Maison’s iconic Monogram canvas, now Vivienne takes its first step into the world of watchmaking.

Louis Vuitton Vivienne Bijou Secret watch

The Vivienne Bijou Secret timepiece blends watchmaking and jewellery expertise. Opening its sparkling eyes wide, Vivienne’s Monogram flower face sits in pink gold, white gold and yellow gold, with over 150 brilliant-cut snow-set diamonds.

Louis Vuitton Vivienne Bijou Secret watch

The movable face of the watch twists to cover or reveal a 21mm white gold case. Its white mother-of-pearl marquetry dial is beautifully embellished with the iconic Monogram flower pattern and set with diamond indexes. This secretive watch comes with a cherry red, peacock blue, emerald green and white alligator strap.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura

Jaeger-LeCoultre expands the Rendez-Vous collection by unveiling a new homage to women: the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura.

Boasting a glittering new interpretation of the large moon-phase display, this exuberant ladies’ watch unites the codes of fine watchmaking and high jewellery in an exquisite ode to the romance of the night sky.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura

Moon phase is the most feminine and romantic horological complication. To create a dazzling interpretation of this beautiful complication, this timepiece unites the rich blue of lapis lazuli with the sparkle of diamonds, the subtle warmth of pink gold and the pale gleam of mother-of-pearl.

Created in the spirit of jewellery watches, with concentric circles of brilliant-cut diamonds surrounding the dial, the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura showcases Jaeger-LeCoultre’s uncompromising attention to detail.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura

To intensify the glittering beauty of the 36 large diamonds that form the outer circle, the Manufacture’s master jewellers have used a classical prong setting technique. The fine gold claws hold the diamonds high, allowing the light to pass through them from every angle, enhancing the presence of each stone and giving an impression that the entire circle is almost floating around the watch case, rather than anchored to it.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura

This dazzling ring of diamonds is further enhanced by an inner circle of 72 grain-set diamonds adorning the bezel; in addition, the upper surfaces of the lugs are set with diamonds and an inverted diamond is set into each of the crowns.

Contrasting with the icy sparkle of the diamonds, the rich blue of the lapis lazuli dial evokes the mystical deep blue of the sky at the moment when day turns to night. On the upper part of the dial, applied ‘floral’ numerals – a Rendez-Vous signature – mark the hours. Graduated in size, they form a broad arc, soaring above an elliptical band of 68 diamonds that outlines the lower dial and draws the eye deeper into it.

Here, amid the delicate tracery of a star chart, the moon plays the major role, its large size giving it a powerful presence; the pale colour and shimmering iridescence of its mother-of-pearl surface – like moonlight itself – glows against the deep blue background. On the celestial map, marking the brightest stars of each constellation, tiny polished golden hemispheres have been applied to the lapis lazuli.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura

Set on the edge of the dial, a hand-polished golden star – emblem of the Rendez-Vous collection – marks the time of a special appointment; it is moved into position by turning the second crown, set into the caseband at the 2 o’clock position.

The exceptional savoir-faire of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s finest craftsmen in moon phase complications has brought the poetic beauty of the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura to life with the technical sophistication of the Manufacture Calibre 935.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura watch case back

This self-winding movement was developed in 2015 especially for the Rendez-Vous collection. Its moonphase mechanism is extremely accurate and it needs no adjustment for 972 years.

Fine decorative details of this sophisticated movement are visible beneath the transparent sapphire case-back, including Côtes de Genève stripes on both the plates and the open-worked 18-carat gold winding rotor.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition

Vacheron Constantin presents a numbered and engraved 100-piece limited edition Traditionnelle manual-winding ladies’ watch dedicated to Mainland China in celebration of Qixi, the Chinese Valentine’s Day.

Originated from the ancient Chinese mythology, the “Qixi Festival (Chinese Valentine’s Day)” celebrates the annual rendezvous of the legendary couple, Cowherd and Weaving Maiden, on the Magpie Bridge. At the romantic time being, the hydrangeas are in full bloom in different shades of purple, therefore the festival is also known as “Purple Valentine’s Day” in China. Weaving Maiden possesses marvelous weaving skills, that she weaved the clouds into a rainbow.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition

Purple, being the last color of the rainbow, represents not only the longing of two lovers to reunite, but also the eternal commitment towards each other as it extends into infinity.  The color Purple is also a synonym for nobility and elegance in Chinese culture.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition

The new Traditionnelle manual-winding, China limited edition pays tribute to the romantic season and is perfectly in tune with the spirit of the collection. Faithful to the origins of Vacheron Constantin, and designed for Chinese women enamored of beautifully crafted watches that are both understated and distinguished.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition

Issued in a 100-piece limited series exclusively for Mainland China, it asserts its style in subtle shades of purple: from the elegant opal purple of its mother-of-pearl dial to the plum purple of its alligator leather strap with 18K 5N pink gold buckle. By contrast, the 54 round-cut diamonds (approx. 0.87 ct) finely set on the bezel make the 18K 5N pink gold case the guardian of a fleeting and wonderful vision of time.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition

Powered by the in-house manual-winding Calibre 1400, this Traditionnelle watch is equipped with hours and minutes display delivering precision and reliability in all circumstances.

The new Traditionnelle manual-winding, China Limited Edition, will be available for pre-order at Vacheron Constantin’s T-mall Flagship Store and also through its phone sales service (+86 400-623-1289) starting from July 15th, and will be available in the boutiques from August 7th.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros 25th Anniversary Collection

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Eliros collection, Swiss watchmaker Maurice Lacroix has launched four new models.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date 25th Anniversary

To mark the anniversary of the Eliros, Maurice Lacroix has created the new Eliros Date 25 th. This timepiece is available with a choice of blue or white lacquered dials. Moreover, the wearer can choose from a blue calf-leather strap or a 9-rows steel bracelet.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date 25th Anniversary

For the first time the dial design blends long batons with elongated Arabic numerals, each presented in alternating colours, giving the model a modern vibe. The hands are silver-toned or blue, depending on the chosen dial colour, and contribute to the model’s impressive legibility. As its name suggests, this timepiece is endowed with a date indication which is positioned at 3 o’clock.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date 25th Anniversary

The 40mm stainless steel case is slender, measuring just 8mm in height, enhancing wearer comfort. A quartz movement is housed within the case, obviating the need for manual winding and delive – ring a high degree of precision.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date 25th Anniversary

The new model also features the company’s ‘Easy Strap Exchange’ system, allowing the wearer to change the appearance of their Eliros without the need for tools.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date 25th Anniversary

To commemorate this milestone in Maurice Lacroix’s history, the case back is engraved with the inscription ‘25th anniversary edition’.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date Adeline Ziliox Special Edition

Keen to mark this milestone in Eliros history, Maurice Lacroix approached Adeline Ziliox, a member of the ML Crew, famed for her Haute Couture creations. Adeline has worked with Maurice Lacroix’s design, conceiving two limited-edition watches.

One of the models created by Adeline sports a black dial. Once again, it employs Arabic numerals to denote the hours. However, the designer chose to depict the odd-numbered hours with a series of pyramid-like structures, often termed Clous de Paris. A circlet, again encompassing the pyramid-like structures, frames the dial. At the centre of the dial, Adeline sought to replicate the appearance of fabric, a medium close to her heart.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date Adeline Ziliox Special Edition

Consistent with other Eliros models, both limited editions include the Swiss brand’s ‘Easy Strap Exchange’ system. Where the Eliros x Adeline Ziliox creations differ is with the composition of the straps and packaging. Adeline is a proud vegetarian and cares passionately about animal rights. When she worked with the Maurice Lacroix team, she expressed a desire to use alternatives to leather straps. This resonated with the Maurice Lacroix and its vision for a greener future.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date Adeline Ziliox Special Edition

The pink strap is executed in synthetic leather while the black strap is made from Piñatex, a material containing pineapple leaf fibre. Although this latter, highly innovative, textile still contains some man-made ingredients, it represents significant progress and clearly signals Maurice Lacroix’s desire to play its part in creating a sustainable future. Furthermore, the packaging is made mainly from recycled materials, reinforcing the model’s green credentials.

The case back is engraved with the inscription ‘designed by Adeline Ziliox’.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery

Jaeger-LeCoultre presents Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery, a master piece by the Maison’s Atelier des Métiers Rares® (Rare Handcrafts™ workshop). A brand new addition to the iconic Reverso collection, this high jewellery watch unites the talents of gem-setters with the mastery of watchmaking complications.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery

Jaeger-LeCoultre featured the cordonnet (‘fine braid’) bracelet on several women’s watches during the 1930s. In 1933, this simple black cord was paired with the Reverso for the first time.

The Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery reinterprets this exquisite pairing in radiant style, transforming the simple cord bracelet into a supple braid of gold and diamonds and uniting it with a fully diamond-set Duetto case.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery

Designed especially for women, the double-sided Duetto offers two dials, each with a different expression of the time. The watch is driven by the manually-wound Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 844.

The front dial of the Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery is constructed of multiple layers: fine golden Arabic numerals are applied to a white mother-of-pearl base and framed by diamond-set brackets; in the centre, framed by a fine filet of gold, a geometric cut-out reveals a glittering field of pavé-set diamonds. The reverse-side dial offers a rich contrast: set onto a background of onyx, diamond-set golden ‘sunbeams’ radiate out from the centre to form the hour markers.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Cordonnet Jewellery

The entire case and bracelet attachment, the bracelet itself and both dials are fully set with diamonds, while the winding crown is adorned with a reverse-set diamond: 1,104 diamonds in total 7.84 carats.

For the case, Jaeger-LeCoultre chose the grain-setting technique, whereby the diamonds are held in place by beads of gold so tiny that they are almost invisible, keeping the stones very close together, so that the watch case appears to be encrusted in a solid mass of diamonds.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin watch with Diamond-set White Gold Case and Black Petite Tapisserie dial

At the heart of this watch is the Manufacture Calibre 2121, visible via the glare-proofed sapphire caseback. This movement is equipped with an open-worked, bidirectional 22-carat gold oscillating weight, conveniently harnessing the motion of the wearer’s wrist to power the watch.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin watch with Diamond-set White Gold Case and Light blue Petite Tapisserie dial

The oscillating weight is hand finished, encompassing both Clous de Paris and satin-brushing. The movement also incorporates hand finishing on the bridges and mainplate, utilising the expertise of the Manufacture’s craftspeople.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin watch with Diamond-set Pink Gold Case and Light blue Petite Tapisserie dial

This includes “Côtes de Genève,” polished bevels, satin-brushed edges and circular graining on the recesses.

Piaget Limelight Gala, Edition 2021

During this year’s Watches & Wonders digital event, Piaget launched six spectacular Piaget Limelight Gala Limited Editions. These creations combine high watchmaking and high jewellery.

Piaget Limelight Gala was first unveiled in the seventies with a now-iconic design incorporating sensual lines, a cambered case, and asymmetrical lugs. Almost half a century later and the Limelight Gala continues to turn heads with its perfectly integrated gold case and bracelet, and lugs adorned with exquisite gemstones.

The name of the collection was inspired by the Piaget Society and its fabulous parties with film stars, artists, clients, and friends of the Maison who shared a certain art de vivre. Celebrities such as Salvador Dali, Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Andy Warhol, Cary Grant, and Sami Davis Jr., would join Piaget for these unforgettable moments together.

Piaget Limelight Gala Precious Limited Editions

This year Piaget presents three delightful new coloured Limelight Gala Precious timepieces in blue, yellow, and pink. The three colours follow the course of the sun throughout the day, with blue for the morning sky, yellow representing the sun at its zenith, and pink depicting the glow of the setting sun.

Each model is adorned with a flowing gradient of coloured sapphires and diamonds that start in intense hues around the bezel and gently lighten as they reach the tips of the lugs.

Piaget Limelight Gala Precious Sunrise

Finding the exact shade and size of sapphire is an art in itself as Piaget’s gemmologists sift through countless stones to be able to create a seamless swirl of colour with the perfect transition from gemstone to gemstone. Each model is powered by the automatic movement, Piaget’s Calibre 501P1.

The Limelight Gala Precious Sunrise comes in a 32mm 18K white gold case and bezel set with 32 brilliant-cut blue sapphires (approx. 4.70 cts.) and 10 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.90 ct.) that evoke the bright blue colour of a sunny morning sky. The dial is created with a snow setting of diamonds (289 in total, with approx. 1.76 cts.) that magnifies the reflections and refractions of light thanks to a glorious mix of different- sized gemstones.

The 18K white gold bracelet is also a work of art in itself thanks to its incredible suppleness and Palace Decor that is one of the Maison’s signature motifs. It takes one of Piaget’s artisans over eight hours to complete one bracelet.

Piaget Limelight Gala High Jewellery Black Opal

This exquisite high-jewellery wristwatch features a rare black opal dial from Australia.

The sensual curves of the Limelight Gala are accentuated by a row of 91 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 5.28 cts.) that circle the bezel, lugs, and bracelet. Piaget has added a spectacular row of 83 marquise-cut emeralds (approx. TBC) to this line of sparkling diamonds, creating a sense of movement across the timepiece, and bringing out the deep green hues of the opal dial.

The marquise cut was named after the French Marquise de Pompadour for whom Louis XV had created a specific gem-cut in the shape of her lips. Since the 1960s, Piaget has often worked with this feminine and sensual cut to accentuate the femininity of its creations.

Sourcing progressively-sized, coloured gemstones of this calibre is extremely challenging. Piaget’s gemmologists searched long and hard for the exact colours, carat, cut, and clarity, explaining why the series is numbered and limited.
