Ulysse Nardin has launched its very first in-house designed and produced self-winding caliber for women, christened Jade, as a tribute to the brand’s female clientele. The 18-carat rose gold case of the flagship piece is adorned with four ceramic horns and a magnificent ring of diamonds, which is exquisitely complemented by a mother-of-pearl dial.
Rolex’s gem-setting mastery shines in the Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster 34 — a timepiece entirely paved with diamonds, which flaunts a bezel adorned with baguette-cut pink sapphires. It is the first model equipped with caliber 2236 and the new Syloxi hairspring in silicon developed by the luxury watchmaker. The
timepiece features a diamond-set bracelet and a winding crown fitted with a patented Twinlock double waterproof system.
A portrait of glamour, the Velvet Haute Joaillerie with blue sapphires from Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis is entirely paved with 367 diamonds — which highlight two stunning cut-to-measure precious stones of around 0.50 carats each. The trompe l’oeil case design and the exclusive genuine haute couture textured satin strap add to the highly elite style that resonates throughout the watch.
For Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz, the figure eight represents completeness — perfectly embodied by the new Lady 8 wrist watch, a fine jewellery timepiece for women. The bezel is embellished with a glittering ribbon of diamonds, which traces the shape of an eight to hug the timepiece, while tightly embracing the single precious stone sitting at its summit.
An innovative manifestation of Dior’s iconic watch, the latest Dior VIII Montaigne is timeless in steel and mother-of-pearl. Named after the historic address of the couture house on the Avenue Montaigne in Paris, the watch is further enhanced by a touch of pink gold and a diamond hem that embellishes the dial.
A chromatic palette led by a dance of precious stones radiates the Happy Sport Medium Automatic Joaillerie watch by Chopard. The robust lines of the cult favourite Happy Sport model are emphasized by a bezel set with baguette-cut rubies, sapphires or emeralds which also adorn the hour-markers, crown and cabochons — while the alligator leather strap picks up the same vibrant colour as the gems on the watch.
Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel Dial “Grand Feu” Enamel watch featuring a stylised Asian musician and dragon, exemplifies tranquility with incredible grace. The model comes in an 18-carat white gold case with 524 snow-set diamonds and the grand feu enamel dial features clouds in plique-à-jour enamel fixed under the crystal.
The newest interpretation of the Corum Golden Bridge is the Golden Bridge Automatic in Titanium, which combines the epochal baguette movement and a titanium case with black DLC (diamond-like carbon) treatment to reflect an assertive, poised nature. Fashioned in gold, the hour-markers applied on the sapphire dial underscore the depth effect, while the open worked hands lend an airy feel to the timepiece.
