Women’s watches at Baselworld 2016

From the voluptuous Bulgari to the classicism of Hermès, these five women’s watches have five very different personalities.

  • Stunning new women’s mechanical watches in the Dior VIII Grand Bal collection include this Coquette model, which dances away the hours in a sumptuous gown made from feathers, tsavorite garnets, sapphires and diamonds, waltzing against a blue lacquered dial (£25,500).
  • The new Retro Lady Baguette, with its distinctive rectangular case, is de GRISOGONO at its best, bursting with colour and texture thanks to the red baguette-cut rubies on the dial and case, the fuchsia SuperLumiNova numerals, and the matching bubbly galuchat strap (£109,100).
  • Elegantly understated, the Slim d’Hermès watch reappeared this year with a resplendent Grand Feu white enamel dial. Like many watches on the market today, its proportions, coming in at 39.5mm in diameter, are designed to appeal to men and women alike (£14,500).
  • The ultra-thin Patek Philippe Calatrava watch received all the plaudits at Baselworld. The 33mm white gold case is set alight with 48 baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel and houses a manual-winding mechanical movement, which you can view through a sapphire crystal caseback (£28,340).
  • A new model from Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream collection caught my eye with its heavenly blue lapis lazuli dial and an unconventional way of displaying the time: a jumping hour display with retrograde minutes (£25,300).
  • Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater watch

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 with over 5 million views 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. 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 and help us grow our business to the next stage.
