Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition

This new reference from the Vacheron Constantin Égérie collection takes inspiration from the delicacy of Burano lace. This sparkling feminine timepiece brings together four artistic crafts handed down and perpetuated within the Maison for 267 years: tapisserie, engraving, enamelling and gemsetting.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition

Unveiled in 2020, the Égérie collection is designed as an ode to femininity mingling Haute Couture and Haute Horlogerie. It draws on the decorative craftsmanship that has been an integral part of the Manufacture since the early 19th century.

Vacheron Constantin has always shown great sensitivity towards its feminine clientele. From the first pocket watches to the new Égérie Creative Edition watch, its creations are distinguished by the fact that they are designed specifically for women rather than being based on men’s models.

Hunter-type cases and a variety of wristwatches thus illustrate the creativity of the Maison. The Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods gave rise to pieces as elaborate as lacework, cases adorned with applied floral motifs or cameos featuring mythological figures, along with skeleton watches.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition

The Égérie Creative Edition timepiece echoes the silhouettes of the 21st century. Its asymmetrical features including the off-centre moon-phase display and the case’s integrated crown set with a rose-cut diamond between 1 and 2 o’clock accentuate the delicacy of the “embroidered” dial swept over by three graceful hands specially designed for the watch.

Daintily engraved like Burano lace, the dial of the Égérie Creative Edition watch involved superimposing five elements involving fascinating expertise.

Inherited from an ancient decorative technique and still executed by the master guillocheur on a machine dating from the early 20th century, the pleated tapisserie motif is produced on a silver base to further enhance the black enamel.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition

The art of the master enameller is also illustrated in the moon-phase window, with the mother-of-pearl night star appearing beneath a plique-à-jour enamel cloud, reduced to just 0.27 mm thick for the first time in the history of the Maison.

The extreme fineness of the white gold lace threads is such that it is physically impossible to hold the applique between the fingers without bending it.

The master engraver and then the master gemsetter therefore deployed the full measure of their expertise: one to create flowers and flat areas, as well as to express personal creativity on areas left free for personal choice; and the other to set the 250 brilliant-cut diamonds adorning the motif and the 292 others lighting up the case and the crown.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition

The watch comes with a black satin-effect calfskin strap featuring a buckle set with 21 diamonds and which can be switched out at the touch of a button for an alternative second strap in black Missisippiensis alligator leather.

Mido Baroncelli Lady Necklace

Introduced in 1976, the Mido Baroncelli collection draws inspiration from the Rennes Opera House. Now, the Swiss watch brand has added the Baroncelli Lady Necklace model to this series. It is available in three case versions: stainless steel, rose-gold PVD coated stainless steel, and dual-tone.

This luxurious and elegant ladies’ watch boasts a ring of 83 diamonds framing its gentle mother-of-pearl face, while 10 rubies highlight the date. Vibrantly echoing the gems on the dial and the fiery red of the leather strap, a scarlet-coloured cabochon sits on top of the crown.

Standing out with radiance and refinement is an art form in which the new Baroncelli Lady Necklace excels. A ribbon of diamonds highlights its mother-of-pearl face in delicate shades. Around its edge, a subtly sandblasted finish enhances the silvered dial.

A ruby-studded pendant encircles the aperture displaying the day at 6 o’clock. Exuding incredible charm, the Baroncelli Lady Necklace is illuminated with several rose gold-coloured touches on the hour, minute and seconds hands, the indexes, the gems’ metal setting, and the 33 mm case.

Each of these elements – faceted, diamond-cut or polished – adds to the sparkle of the whole. This luxurious look is enhanced by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

The Baroncelli Lady Necklace inaugurates a series of four watches, each featuring a crown with a synthetic stone that echoes the shades of the timepiece.

Recalling the red tones of the rubies, a scarlet-coloured synthetic ornamental cabochon brightens its flank. The crocodile-look leather strap also stands out with its garnet colour.

The Mido Baroncelli Lady Necklace watch is powered by the reliable Calibre 80, a self-winding movement with a power reserve of up to 80 hours.

The sapphire case back reveals this finely decorated movement, with 25 jewels, and an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase Diamond-set

Fully paved with sparkling diamonds, this bejewelled version of the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase watch has been subtly redesigned to ensure perfectly proportioned shapes.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase Diamond-set

The dial features the snow-setting technique, according to which 548 round-cut diamonds in ten different diameters ranging from 0.7 to 1.5 mm are randomly placed to achieve a striking effect.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase Diamond-set

The small seconds counter, features 38 diamonds rimmed by 24 stones to enhance legibility. Prong setting extends to 225 round-cut diamonds totalling approximately 4.8 carats and adorning the bezel, case middle, lugs and crown.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase Diamond-set

A tinted mother-of-pearl inlay serves as the power-reserve indicator, while the moon phases – standing out on a star-studded disc and in the same gold hue as the case with an opaline finish – appear through an aperture between 8 and 9 o’clock.

The 37.5 mm diameter white gold case is set with 225 round-cut diamonds. Driven by the in-house 1410 AS movement, the moon phases are based on 29-day, 12-hour and 45-minute lunar cycles, incorporated into the mechanism in the form of a 135-tooth wheel. The high-precision moon of this watch thus displays a variation in rate of just one day every 122 years.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Moon Phase Diamond-set

The finishing of the manual-winding movement – circular-grained on the front mainplate and featuring a Côtes de Genève motif adorning the bridges on the reverse side complete with hand-chamfered edges and straight- grained flanks – can be admired through the sapphire caseback of the watch.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” Chronograph Ref. 7968/300R-001

Patek Philippe has expanded its Aquanaut Luce collection by launching the new “Rainbow” Chronograph model set with baguette diamonds and baguette sapphires. Moreover, it is the first self-winding Patek Philippe ladies’ chronograph.

The new Ref. 7968/300R-001 Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” chronograph is equipped with the self-winding caliber CH 28-520, a vertical disc clutch, and a large 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock.

Thanks to this modern clutch that operates with minimal wear and without affecting precision and power reserve, the sweep chronograph hand can also be used as a constantly running seconds hand.

With the pusher at 4 o’clock, the flyback function makes it possible to start a new measurement at any time, even if the sweep chronograph hand is already measuring the duration of an event or if it is being used as a constantly running seconds hand.

The octagonal bezel of the new Ref. 7968/300R-001 Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” chronograph is adorned with two rows of baguette-cut gems. The inner row consists of 40 flawless rare white Top Wesselton diamonds (2.05 ct). The outer one, slightly angled, sports 40 sapphires in the colors of the rainbow (2.31 ct). Each of them was hand-picked to assure the perfect transition from one nuance color to the next.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” Chronograph Ref. 7968/300R-001
Image Credit: Patek Philippe

For this two-row arrangement, Patek Philippe selected the “invisible setting” technique in which the gems are horizontally notched on the lower facet. They can then be set on “metal rails” that are invisible from the outside.

The mother-of-pearl dial is engraved with the typical Aquanaut motif. The twelve applied hour markers in rose gold are baguette sapphires (0.31 ct) with nuance colors coordinated with those on the dial. Luminous baton hands in rose gold make the hours and minutes quickly and easily legible.

The 18K rose gold case has a diameter of 39.9 mm. The two chronograph pushers are manually polished and satin-finished by the manufacture’s artisans. In full compliance with the directives of the Patek Philippe Seal, the caliber CH 28-520 movement is also elaborately finished. It can be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back.

This striking gem-set ladies’ watch is delivered with three straps made of a highly durable composite material – one is red (original version), the other two are matte beige and matte white. The patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp is adorned with ten baguette diamonds (0.36 ct).

Mido Rainflower Blossom, Reference M043.236.36.101.00

For the first time, Mido has created a skeleton watch especially dedicated to women. The new and audacious Rainflower Blossom features delicate lines, directly inspired by the lotus flower shape of Singapore’s contemporary ArtScience Museum.

The face of the Rainflower Blossom features an iridescent mother-of-pearl flower, adorned with a rose-gold-coloured polished border. Its openwork petals playfully reveal the beating heart of the watch.

Mido Rainflower Blossom watch

Glimpsed among other delicate and finely decorated mechanical details are the regular palpitations of the escape wheel and the oscillations of the balance at 12 o’clock. Polished rose-gold-coloured indexes mark the hours, illuminating this gracious yet daring display.

Mido Rainflower Blossom

For perfect legibility, the intense beauty of the black varnished hands, which have been finely skeletonised for the hours and minutes, stands out against the dial.

Mido Rainflower Blossom

The charms of the Rainflower Blossom are nestled within a rose-gold-coloured steel case, its sides polished and sandblasted to resemble petals. This composition, designed to draw the eye, continues onto the wrist, with a crocodile-look cow leather black strap.

Mido Rainflower Blossom

The transparent case back reveals the very precise Caliber 80 fitted with a Nivachron™ balance-spring. In addition to excellent resistance to shocks and wear and tear, this material considerably reduces the effect of magnetic fields on the regularity of the watch.

Mido Rainflower Blossom

Its visible oscillating weight is adorned with a “Rainflower” decoration, its interlaced lines reminiscent of the core of the Singapore ArtScience museum that inspired it. Particularly reputed for its reliability, the Caliber 80 offers an excellent power reserve of up to 80 hours.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Black

“Serpenti, or “snake” in Italian, is an infinite source of inspiration for Bulgari. In 2019, the Maison has reimagined one of its legends in a slimmer and equally sensual case, sporting a bracelet with hexagonal scales. The Serpenti has thus been transformed into the Serpenti Seduttori.

The model now appears attired in black. Its case features the distinctive teardrop-shaped watch head, while its supple, second skin-like bracelet gently hugs the wrist.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Black watches

Bulgari is offering not one but two versions of this refined model with a dial that passes through shadows to arrive at nuances revealing flashes of brilliance.

The two references convey a strong message, a glamour manifesto in a 33 mm steel case featuring a DLC treatment with powerfully complimentary black textures.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Black

Its rose gold bezel makes a perfect match with the dark side of the timepiece, available in either a classic edition or in a flamboyant iteration set with 38 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.38ct).

Both Serpenti Seduttori watches house a quartz movement and are fitted with a dainty and ingenious folding clasp.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon White Gold, Diamonds and Black Spinels

The new Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon watch fuses Haute Joaillerie and Haute Horlogerie.

Snakes have inspired Bulgari since the 1940s. All it takes is a simple teardrop-shaped watch case and a bracelet that wraps around the wrist one or more times to evoke the spirit of Serpenti.

The Serpenti watch collection is constantly undergoing new transformations. Bulgari continues to perpetuate this daring destiny with the Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon, a high jewellery watch adorned with Spinels and diamonds.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon

Measuring 34 mm diameter, the iconic snake-head case in white gold is entirely set with diamonds, while its bezel sparkles with black spinels.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon

Its curved, supple, extremely comfortable bracelet pays tribute to Bulgari’s unique expertise in this area and invokes the entire mythology of the serpent. Witness the entrancing allure of this creation with its mesh pattern sometimes paved with diamonds and sometimes with black spinels.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

Independent watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin presents Harley Quinn, the first female Wristmon watch.

The legacy of the Wristmons collection began in 2017 with the launch of the iconic Joker watch. The year 2022 marks the 5th anniversary of this much acclaimed series.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

The “eyes” (hour and minute indicators) of the Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN watch are distinguished by their extraordinary turquoise and pink-colored rim. The additional colors were used to give the eyes an almond-shaped form while maintaining the round shape of the dials.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

The watch dial evokes the Harley Quinn’s unique style with the small black mask, puffy eyelashes, and the black heart-shaped tattoo on her cheek. The dial also spotlights two types of guilloché.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

Relief décor with a heart, diamonds, and the logo of Harley Quinn all appear on the disc rotor system of the K.07-4 caliber with automatic winding, which was designed by Konstantin Chaykin specially for this watch. Unlike in the first Joker watch, the steel caseback features a sapphire window, revealing the rotor design.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

This is the first female character in the Wristmons collection, and so Konstantin Chaykin decided to endow the watch with a case reduced to 40mm in diameter.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

The design is completed by an exclusive collector’s strap with red and black diamond motifs. It was designed by Konstantin Chaykin for this particular model.

Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN Limited Edition

The strap is made of high quality leather. Note that a classic red strap with red stitching comes with the watch by default. Collector’s version of the strap is sold separately.

The Konstantin Chaykin HARLEY QUINN watch is issued in a limited edition of 28 pieces.

The movements have been elaborately finished with blued screws and gold-plated rotors and can be admired through sapphire glass case backs.

For the models featuring diamond-set bezels, the shape of the case has been optimised to accommodate larger stones of 1.7 millimetres. The dial and the case of these references are decorated with 72 diamonds totalling 1.12 carats. In addition, because of an improved setting, the diamonds reflect the light better and have a more visible presence and added brilliance.

For the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37, IWC has integrated a moon phase module into a movement from the IWC-manufactured 32000 caliber family for the first time. Thanks to a special reduction wheel train, the display works so precisely that it only deviates from the actual orbit of Earth’s satellite by one day after 122 years.

The moon phase disc, located at 12 o’clock on the dial, is made of solid gold and pad-printed with a blue night sky. The display can be adjusted easily in daily intervals using the crown.

Taking inspiration from its own glorious past Swiss watch brand LONGINES presents the new Evidenza collection. Dressed in tonneau-shaped cases, these new timepieces feature art-deco style sector dials.

Longines Evidenza Automatic automatic watch

The dial of new Evidenza features two finishes: the individual sectors are matt- finished, surrounded by a rose print; the rest of the dial is distinguished by a striking sunray brush finish.

Evidenza is available in silver, green, red, anthracite, champagne and blue dial versions. The dial has bold painted Roman numeral markers, three centrally placed hands for hour, minute, and seconds, and a date window at 6 o’clock. A sapphire crystal glass with several layers of anti-reflective coating protects the dial.

Longines Evidenza Automatic watch with green dial and strap

The Longines Evidenza watch is delivered on a new alligator strap with tonal stitches. Depending upon the dial color, the strap color can be red, green, anthracite, grey, or blue. A stainless steel bracelet is also available on the silver version.

Longines Evidenza Automatic watch

To equip these new Evidenza wristwatch models with steel case, Longines has opted for an automatic movement (Cal. L952) whose anti-magnetic silicon balance-spring enhances its performance and stability. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, this self-winding calibre offers a power reserve of 45 hours.

Longines Evidenza Automatic

Silicon is not only light and corrosion-resistant but also remains unaffected by normal temperature variations and magnetic fields. Its unique properties improve the precision and longevity of the watch and allow Longines to provide these models with a 5-year warranty.

Made of stainless steel, the case measures 26mm X 30.60mm X 8.70mm. Water resistant to 30 meters, the new Evidenza automatic watches feature solid stainless steel case-back, secured to the body with four screws.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

Vacheron Constantin has launched a new China limited edition from Égérie collection which is inspired by Chinese Valentine’s Day. This numbered and engraved 150-piece limited edition is dedicated to Mainland China.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

Inspired by Chinese classical attire, the watch evokes signature pleats pattern made by tapestry technique with a gossamer pink, opaline dial – a new color for the Vacheron Constantin Égérie collection.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

The uniqueness of the gossamer pink can be also found in both the new double wrap-around calf leather strap and an interchangeable alligator leather strap, eulogizing the profile of Pibo, an essential, divine scarf of the Chinese nymphs.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

The refined off-centered dial is adorned with 34 brilliant-cut diamonds, interpreting the modern aesthetic codes cherished by Vacheron Constantin, and echoes the meaning of “preference” in Chinese.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

Set with a magnificent form of the “Pleats” pattern, the dial is surrounded by 62 diamonds on the whole circle. It is carefully decorated with “tapestry” craftsmanship which restores the charming drapes of Haute Couture.

Vacheron Constantin Égérie quartz China Limited Edition

To highlight a harmonious composition, the crown between 1 and 2 o’clock is topped with a moonstone. The 18K 5N pink gold hours and minutes hands are whirling around a circular pearl minute track.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T New Models with Gem-stone Dial Plates

Introduced in 2019, Legacy Machine Flying T is the first MB&F Machine dedicated to women.

The first MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT watch was launched in 2019 in three editions, all in white gold and set with diamonds: black lacquer dial plate with case set with brilliant-cut diamonds; dial plate and case both fully set with brilliant-cut diamonds; and dial plate and case both fully set with baguette-cut diamonds. In 2020, Legacy Machine FlyingT Red Gold and Platinum versions with guilloche dial plates were launched.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T with 18K White Gold Case and lapis lazuli dial plate

This year, three new diamond-set editions with gemstone dial plates have been added to the FlyingT collection: 18K white gold case with lapis lazuli dial plate, 18K white gold with malachite dial plate and 18K yellow gold case with tiger eye dial plate.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T with diamond-set White Gold Case and lapis lazuli dial plate
MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T with diamond-set 18K white gold case and lapis lazuli dial plate

The Legacy Machine FlyingT is a three-dimensional horological art piece for women. It features a round case with a steeply cambered bezel and slender, elongated lugs. A high, extravagantly convex dome of sapphire crystal rises from the bezel. The subtly curved dial plate of this watch is offered in various finishes: black lacquer, guilloche, gem-stone or diamond-set. The new models released in 2022 feature gemstone dials: lapis lazuli, malachite or tiger eye.

An asymmetric ventricular opening in the dial plate frames a flying tourbillon movement that beats at a serene rate of 2.5Hz (18,000vph). The tourbillon projects high above the rest of the engine, a kinetic, dynamic column that stops just short of the apex of the sapphire crystal dome. Affixed to the top of the upper tourbillon cage is a single large diamond that rotates simultaneously with the flying tourbillon.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T with diamond-set 18K yellow gold case and tiger eye dial plate

At the 7 o’clock position is a dial of gemstone (lapis lazuli, malachite or tiger eye) that displays the hours and minutes with a pair of elegant serpentine hands. The dial is inclined at a 50° tilt so that the time can be read only by the wearer.

On the reverse, the automatic winding rotor takes the shape of a three-dimensional red gold sun with sculpted rays. The Legacy Machine FlyingT has a power reserve of four days (100 hours).

Chopard IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon

Chopard has added a new flying tourbillon watch to its IMPERIALE collection.

Issued in an eight-piece limited edition, IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon watch features a diamond-set case in ethical 18-carat white gold, and a sparkling aventurine dial ‘embroidered’ with a mother-of-pearl marquetry lotus blossom.

Introduced in 1994, the Chopard IMPERIALE collection welcomes its first-ever flying tourbillon movement, L.U.C Calibre 96.24-C. Entirely designed and crafted by Chopard, this exclusive mechanism is one of the only ones on the market bearing both Chronometer-certification and the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.

Chopard IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon

Entirely crafted in the Manufacture’s workshops, Chopard’s flying tourbillon was launched in 2019 in the men’s L.U.C FlyingT Twin watch. Since then, this tourbillon mechanism has also been available in ladies’ limited series.

It now benefits from all the technical innovations developed over the last 25 years by Chopard Manufacture. Its remarkable slenderness–at barely 3.30mm thick for 194 components– ranks it among the thinnest in contemporary Haute Horlogerie.

L.U.C Calibre 96.24-C is equipped with a stop-seconds function. This technical feature, which is extremely rare in a tourbillon, enables even more accurate time-setting, and the IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon is indeed chronometer-certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

This exceptional watch has earned the Poinçon de Genève, the prestigious hallmark that has been awarded since 1886 in recognition of the highest level of production quality for each component. Finally, Chopard Twin technology ensures that the IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon has a 65-hour power reserve.

A tribute to the great historical empires, the style codes of the IMPERIALE collection are reflected in the dagger-shaped hands and the case lugs reminiscent of ancient columns. On the back of the model, a sapphire crystal reveals the Côtes de Genève motif as well as the diamond-paved platinum micro-rotor.

Chopard IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon

The case and lugs in ethical 18-carat white gold are adorned with sparkling diamonds. Their brilliance lights up the glittering midnight-blue sky of the aventurine glass dial on which a lotus flower in mother-of-pearl marquetry has blossomed.

Its wonderfully curved petals open on to a second flower, this time paved with diamonds. In place of the pistil, the flying tourbillon adorned with four petals also acquires a plant-like allure, thus instilling new poetry into the rotations of its infinitely small mechanism.
