Men and women’s watches for your wish list.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN model was made for your great escape abroad. It contains the names of 24 cities, each one representing one of the international time zones. The watch can be set to a different time zone by pressing down and rotating the bezel. Available in a sophisticated jet-black, this watch is versatile and can match any outfit – be it in Europe, Asia or America. Limited to 500 pieces.
Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar
Limited to 300 pieces worldwide, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is the dress watch that will turn heads. The main attraction is its salmon ‘’Grande Tapisserie’’ dial that has matching subdials. Checking time becomes understandably obsessive with this watch. The hour-markers are made of white gold and its titanium case is glare-proofed. Sapphire crystals adorn the caseback so if you need subtle glimmer, this might be the one to watch out for.
A.Lange & Söhne
1815 Rattrapante Honeygold “Homage to F. A. Lange”
This is the thinnest A.Lange & Söhne watch that incorporates a split-second mechanism. Named Honeygold to represent the unique colourway between pink and yellow gold, this watch is more gutsy as compared to its delicate name. It is harder than platinum and twice as hard as 18k yellow gold. Traditional, classic design meets mighty watchmaking.
The Long Island has become synonymous with its rectangular shape and its homage to the Art Deco movement. Watch-lovers will appreciate the Colour Dreams numerals, bringing more personality to this otherwise elegant ensemble. The straps, while made of 18k white gold, appears to be woven and claimed to feel like silk on the wrist.
Van Cleef and Arpels
Sweet Alhambra Watch
The Alhambra motif is a signature of Van Cleef and Arpels and incorporating it in a watch might be an ingenious move. Unique and feminine, the Sweet Alhambra Watch was designed to double up as a bracelet. The face is kept clean from numerical symbols, so if minimal is your aesthetic, get this timepiece that does the best of both worlds.
Boyfriend Skeleton Watch
Timeless is Chanel’s game, and they always excel. Expertly blending function and form, the Boyfriend Skeleton watch is both precise and sleek. The watch’s crown is made of 18K beige gold with an onyx cabochon while calfskin strap is in its signature black quilt.
L’Heure Du Diamant
Chopard’s L’Heure Du Diamant is undoubtedly the most dazzling among all. The timepiece showcases a 4.44-carat halo of diamonds around the dial to reflect as much light as possible. The alligator straps and diamond-adorned case is another reason why it boasts its iconic status.
