SIHH 2012 Editor's pick of womens watches

Editor's top picks of women's watches from SIHH 2012.

SIHH 2012 Vacheron Constantin

After seeing hundreds of watches at the Salon Internationale de Haute Horlogerie, here is my pick of the most beautiful women's watches that caught my eye. Some are very much jewellery watches with diamonds galore while others are pleasing to the eye because of their sinuous forms.

Cartier as always play the panther to perfection and in this case the diamond feline whirls around the dial and his sparkling rotations serve not just to throw shards of light into the atmosphere, he is also diligently winding the automatic movement. Piaget conceal a dial behind a pretty gold and diamond set disc as part of the houses's Limelight collection. Vacheron Constantin excel with their dedication to the finest and most rare crafts. The Metiers d'Arts series for this year focusses on tesselations and the work of Escher, the Dutch artist. Arguably both for men or women these were some of the most exciting watches I saw at the Fair. I even had a go at filling in one of the miniscule chambers that make up the body of a fish with enamel paste, through a pair of microscope binoculars - I am sure that dial will go to the scrap heap.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
