The Watches We Got For You Are More Than Enough To Make A Fashion Statement And Give Your Outfit That Extra Bit Of Elegance. So, Wait Not And Jewel It Up!
Getting dressed has now become a mode of expressing individuality for some, but for most, it will always remain a way to comply. Fundamentally, everybody wants to dress for pleasure and freedom of expression!
Why bother wearing jewellery and watches if you are not seeking personal satisfaction? Have both of them in one instead! We love nothing more than gazing down at a smooth and shiny gold jewellery placed on wrists to see each piece catching the light and contrast against the colour and texture.
Are you looking for watch to wear without carrying the burden of watchy connotations (ahem – lug-to-lug, micro-adjust)? Hereby, we alert you that wearing it will attract lots and lots of attention, but always for the right reasons and the best compliments. These timepieces will never spark conversation about diameter or gender politics or worse yet – mechanical integrity.
We found ourselves gravitating towards a few models that we are sure you would find appealing. So, help your wrists!
1. SWAROVSKI, CRYSTAL ROCK OVAL WATCH
This Crystal Rock Oval watch is a timepiece crafted for sensational glamour. The elegant oval case is 26mm x 29mm and is made with a beautiful rose gold-tone finish. Beneath the faceted glass, a sunray greige dial features the Swarovski swan at 12 o’clock, while a single stone is set in the watch’s crown. The case is set on an adjustable metal bracelet that has been adorned with approximately 232 Ultra Fine Crystal Rocks in greige giving an exquisite shimmering effect. This Swiss watch is water resistant to 50m, and is designed with an inherent sophistication for everyday occasion.
With this Swarovski watch from the Crystal Rock Oval collection, you are wearing a real gem on your wrist. The rose-coloured
alloy layer with PVD finish gives the case a classy look, which is further enhanced by the 232 sparkling crystals on the bracelet.
While the quartz movement ensures precise timekeeping, the folding clasp ensures a secure fit on the wrist. With a waterproof finish up to 50m, it makes the watch the perfect companion for a beach holiday or a trip to a swimming pool.
2. RADO, TRUE THINLINE X GREAT GARDENS OF THE WORLD
The brand renowned for its innovative use of high-tech ceramic and minimalist, Rado launched three contemporary designs in new automatic models. With textured dials inspired by endangered plant species in partnership with the Great Gardens of the
World organisation, join the True Thinline collection. Launching the newest trio of the True Thinline x Great Gardens of the World, it plays with the shapes and textures of three endangered plants. The brand’s design of the dials focuses entirely on its stylised aesthetic complementing the wrist quite well.
Therefore, there are no indices on the dial. Instead, only an hour and minute hand indicate the time. For this model, the Yemeni Dragon Blood Tree’s unique entanglement of branches is recreated through the use of two dial layers. The rhodium-coloured, skeletonised top layer stands out from its rose-gold-coloured backplate in terms of colour through a sunburst brushing. Despite the contrast between the rhodium and the rose-gold, the result is a harmonious watch that is rounded off by the rose-gold-coloured hands.
3. BULGARI, SERPENTI SECRET WATCH
The Serpenti is a Bulgari cornerstone, appearing across the brand’s jewellery, leather goods, and of course watches. Last year, the design hit a milestone with the gem-set Serpenti Misteriosi, which housed the smallest round mechanical movement on the market. The dial paves a way entirely with diamonds, hidden under a serpent’s head that features eyes of emeralds.
Pushing down on the tongue, lifts the head to reveal the dial. Given its rich jewellery-making legacy, it’s no surprise that Bulgari’s craftsmanship techniques are on full display in these new Serpenti Misteriosis. The lacquering too is inspired by the enamelling technique used by the Egyptians as far back as 2000 BCE, and by Bulgari since the 1960s for the Serpenti. The mesmerising masterpiece is embellished with black lacquer, sparkling navette diamonds and spellbinding emerald eyes, and two pear-shaped emerald eyes, winding crown below the watch head and snow-set diamond dial.
4. JAEGER LE COULTRE 101 SECRETS
Jaeger-LeCoultre adds up three new dazzling additions to its Calibre 101 collection functioning as an impeccable showcase of the technical expertise and dexterity of the Maison’s watchmakers and gem-setters. The new launches include the 101 Secrets,
a brand new ‘secret watch’ design, set with over 1,000 diamonds, amounting to almost 27 carats.
Surrounded by diamonds, the exceptional watch hides a mother-of-pearl dial, only revealed when its wearer wishes to see the
time. Pushing a hidden button concealed within the diamonds, a discreet mechanism will uncover the elegant and delicate dial. The intrigue surrounding hidden dial watches dates back to the 19th century, a time when pocket watches started featuring embellished hinged covers. The designers at Jaeger-LeCoultre draw inspiration from the graceful curves and bold lines of Art Deco and 20th-century modernism. This timepiece like jewellery is characterised by four rows of diamonds. While, the dial remains concealed until the wearer desires to check the time, achieved with a discreet press of a concealed button, unveiling the dial.
