When haute couture meets exquisite horological traditions – the world of fine watches sees some truly magnificent pieces that are the epitome of feminine spirit, timeless class and elegance. Exhibited earlier this year at the famous Baselword event – these 5 jewelry watches are something that every woman would dream to have.
1. Hublot’s Big Bang Broderie
Hublot has long been a brand admired by many for its uncompromising quality and technical superiority. Now, the new debut of the new Big Bang Broderie sees the watch giant venture into the delicate world of feminine timepieces with a model that is as beautiful as it is glamorously painstaking. A total of 8148 adorn the cuff-like timepiece with an enchanting snow-paved dial. The magnificent creation retails for €16,500.
2. Faberge Lady Compliquée Peacock
Faberge has long been revered as a master jeweler and the brand’s intricate diamond and gemstone-embellished creations attest to centuries’ worth of artisan traditions and know-how. So, when they unveiled the Lady Compliquée Peacock, it was no wonder that the fashion scene was completely smitten with its sublimely refined sensuality and diamond-encrusted peacock adorning the dial. The asking price of the model is $250,000.
3. Chopard Green Carpet Collection Diamond Watch
This breath-taking creation, part of the sustainable Green Carpet Collection, is truly a sight to behold. Hand-crafted to perfection, it features marquise-cut diamonds, laid out in ascending order with respect to their size in an unusual pattern and form and enhanced with navette-cut diamonds. The brilliant diamonds contrast beautifully with the black satin strap. This model costs $1.1 million.
4. The Sicis Gardenia Collection
A collection like nothing else you have ever seen – these micro-mosaic flowers made of diamonds, gold and precious stones are delicately nestled on satin ribbons. Inside the center of every flower a small dial is hidden, making these three-dimensional bracelets into true works-of-art. Price is available on request.
5. Christophe Claret’s Margot
The extremely complicated and intricate watch is a true representation of the know-how and legacy of maison Christophe Claret. It exhibits a delicate daisy display on the dial and as the hours progress – the petals disappear one by one, following the popular ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ play. The pistil (center) of the daisy flower is made of a uniquely cut yellow sapphire crystal, while pear-cut diamonds decorate the dial itself. Available in 18-carat white or rose gold, the watch costs $280,000 in its 5.2-carat version.
