Watch out for these glam wrist beauties!

The Royal Oak Offshore Ladies’ Chronograph from Audemars Piguet is a sporty, chic design that comes with a rubber strap, a touch of red and a diamond-set bezel. The black dial with its exclusive “Mega Tapestry” motif and luminescent white numerals makes an elegant statement.

When a private British art collector who owns an incredibly valuable Lord Leighton original oil painting called Pavonia wanted to personalise his Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch, he asked the brand if it was possible to have a duplicate of the painting recreated on the case of his favorite watch. Now this rare timepiece with its painting in enamel makes a truly unique statement.

The new Happy Sport mini square model from Chopard incorporates all the unique qualities that have made Happy Sport the successful collection it is today. Bearing the collection’s signature mobile diamonds, this watch is available in steel with a white or mother-of-pearl dial for sober luxury. It is also available in versions with a chic brown leather strap or a sporty steel bracelet.

An iconic Cartier model, the Santos watch established a veritable new lifestyle in 1904. 100 years later, it took on new and momentous proportions for the launch of the Santos 100 watch featuring the 9611 MC caliber that can store sufficient energy for 72 hours of timekeeping, guaranteeing the long-term consistency of the mainspring and exceptional precision.

Mysterious and fascinating, with the Admiral’s Cup Black Challenge 44, Corum introduces a new interpretation that endows this model – in black or white dial versions – with a powerful, virile personality. Powering chronograph functions as well as the date at 4.30 in addition to conventional hour, minute and seconds indications, this movement is graced with a rhodium-plated finish as well an oscillating weight engraved with the brand name.

Harry Winston’s Jewels That Tell Time combine the exceptional jewellery-making techniques of their legendary diamond collections transcending traditional watch making. Distinctly different in design, each scintillating timepiece is intricately crafted with only the finest diamonds to capture an iconic Harry Winston jewellery motif so that each stunning creation reflects a particular facet of the brand’s enduring aesthetic.

The La mini D de Dior from Christian Dior pays tribute to Mitza Bricard, Christian Dior’s own elegant muse. With its classic shape, this 70s inspired timepiece paves its dial with leopard patterns in sapphires or diamonds and black lacquer.

Perfect for delicate wrists, the Montblanc Profile Lady Elegance Etoile Secrète is a veritable jewel, limited to a tiny edition of just 10 watches. The combination of the bright white Top Wesselton diamonds with the iridescent shimmer of the mother-of-pearl dial and the exclusive Montblanc Diamond at 12 O’clock is very impressive. This elegant little piece of jewellery is worn on a white brushed satin wristband secured by an 18-k red gold pin buckle.
