Divas take note - some of the most beautiful jewellery watches in the world are right here at the SIHH, the luxury Geneva watch show.

As watchmakers bend over backwards to woo the most demanding customers, here are some fabulous watches that I have spotted.

Following the success of the award-winning diamond Punk cuff watch, this year Audemars Piguet unleashes the force of the Diamond Fury, with just under 5,000 diamonds, which packs a punch.

The strong architecture, and brave new look, of this watch treads where few others dare, and would be perfect for divas who like a lot of drama.

Van Cleef & Arpels' Ruby Secret watch is an amazing and magnificent creation, with its 115 vivacious deep red Mozambique rubies, which weigh just over 151 carats.

Each one is masterfully set into this bracelet, which took 1,500 hours of painstaking work. Inspired by a watch from 1945, a secret dial is hidden in a sliding drawer.

Like an Haute Couture creation, Roger Dubuis experiments with materials to create a daring new combination of colour and shape.

The Black Velvet watch sets 66 electric blue Paraiba tourmalines into a high-tech, cutting-edge, lightweight carbon case that is 10 times lighter than gold and brings a darkly modern edge to the luxury watch.

From old-school glamour to rebel, there is a watch for every diva, however demanding she may be.
