watchmaker has been crafting high-end timepieces, consistently fulfilling its core value: which is sophistication in how we tell

With a diversity of styles for sale both online and in showrooms, you can roam the wide collection in a way that suits you. When the Panthère de Cartier dropped in 1983, it was presented as a watch that doubled as jewelry—its name coming from the ultra-flexible bracelet that mirrored the movements of Maison’s emblematic animal.

3. BULGARI SERPENTI TUBOGAS WATCH
BULGARI SERPENTI TUBOGAS WATCH
Like a lady growing old gracefully, the Serpenti has continuously reinvented itself and improved over time. Its origin dates back to the 1940s, right after World War II, when the brand launched the flexible Tubogas bracelet. The first Serpenti models
did not include a head or tail but had the same signature coil mechanism for flexibility and comfort. In the 1960s, their design grew more sophistication. Using enamel and different gems, Bvlgari started creating realistic portrayals of a snake from its head to its scales all the way to its tail. An ancient symbol of power, rebirth, and elegance, the snake is the brand’s tribute to its Greek and Roman heritage. With expert use of juxtaposing materials and goldsmith techniques, Bulgari’s Serpenti watch became a force to be reckoned with in the jewellery and watchmaking industry. Indeed, the Bulgari Serpenti has one of the
most recognizable designs in the history of jewellery and watchmaking. However, it’s important to know that its popularity didn’t just happen overnight.

5. CHOPARD HAPPY SPORT – 36 MM, QUARTZ, LUCENT STEELTM, DIAMONDS
CHOPARD HAPPY SPORT – 36 MM, QUARTZ, LUCENT STEELTM, DIAMONDS
The Happy Sport is the brainchild of Caroline Scheufele–now Co-President and Artistic Director of the brand–who was driven by the idea of creating a versatile watch, formal yet casual, precious yet slightly sporty. And behind this watch, was a striking concept, the dancing diamonds launched by Caroline’s parents.“These diamonds are happier when they are free,” as her mother exclaimed in 1976 when she initially laid eyes on the first prototype. If Chopard will also launch a redesigned collection for the Happy Sport, a watch that will show modernized elements yet still be totally in line with the DNA of the range, there’s also, and mostly this limited-edition model to surface, a watch that is a direct descendant of the original 1993 watch, yet of course with contemporary touches all around.
