Top five most spectacular ladies luxury watches
Based on feedback from our readers and members, CPP-LUXURY.COM has compiled a ranking of 10 most spectacular ladies watches of the year – an ideal gift for any occasion.
1. Roger Dubuis Velvet Haute-Joaillerie in pink gold with emeralds
The colored gemstones on this extraordinary watch, cut as cushion shapes, are highly saturated and very clean. The are framed by a full canvas of tapered baguettes and princess cuts, in one of the nicest gem layouts of any jewelry watch I’ve seen. The rows of diamonds radiate out from the center of the dial and are organized in grids into which they are invisibly set – the grids form a pattern, and become part of the overall design. This is so much harder to do than randomly setting round diamonds in various sizes around a case and dial wherever they will fit.
2. Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Fabuleux Ornements
The new Métiers d’Arts Fabuleux Ornements collection is an irresistible invitation to embark on a journey celebrating the ornamental beauties of the world drawn from the decorative arts of several cultures. Inspired by dreams of faraway places and by the open-minded approach to the world consistently cultivated by Vacheron Constantin, it unveils four ladies’ models born of the art of openworking and a combination of artistic crafts. Ten different master artisans have taken turns in providing talented reinterpretations of Ottoman architecture, Chinese embroidery, Indian manuscripts and French lacework. These exquisitely feminine creations are equipped with an ethereal hand-engraved calibre echoing the precious dial ornamentation and enshrining a subtle blend of inner and outer beauty.
3. Piaget Altiplano
Piaget Altiplano watch, 34 mm. Case in 18K white gold set with 72 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.5 ct). White dial with a small-seconds counter set with a line of 28 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.1 ct). Manufacture Piaget 450P ultra-thin hand-wound mechanical movement with small seconds.
4. Breguet Héritage Phase de Lune
The beautiful tonneau case is retained with the very fine fluted case sides in rose gold. On this new model the dial is the most noticeable – the center is white Mother-of-Pearl in the a wavy patern (flinqué alterne). The raised edges of the center are off-set by a remarkable frosted silver chapter ring with dark grey Roman Numerals, outlined with blue. The always-recognizable Breguet hands in blue complete the dial.
5. Chopard Happy Sport Medium Automatic
This Happy Sport watch sparkles with femininity. Stunningly crafted from stainless steel with a diamond-set bezel, its curved lines and daring unconventionality are perfectly Chopard. The silver-toned dial richly accentuates the Roman numerals and finely crafted details, while Chopard’s signature moving diamonds playfully dance in a joyful display of light.
