Clé de Cartier 31mm watch

Clé de Cartier

The success of Cartier’s Clé watch collection can be attributed to its seductive silhouette based on a circular dial embraced by elliptical lugs. This 31mm white gold beauty is enhanced with diamonds on the bezel and offset with a vibrant fuchsia alligator strap. The dial, with its classic Cartier Roman numerals, features a central sunray pattern and a date window at 6 o’clock. In keeping with tradition, the hallmark blue sapphire cabochon on Cartier watches has been adapted to fit inside the key-shaped crown. The Clé collection is equipped with calibre 1847 MC - Cartier’s new automatic movement with a dual-direction winding system ensuring a steady power supply of 42 hours.

Grande Reverso Lady Ultra-Thin

The world’s best-loved reversible watch is just one click away from your wrist. This Grande Reverso model comes in an ultra-thin case measuring just 7.2mm in height and features a slight curve that adapts beautifully to the contours of a woman’s wrist. The dial is decidedly feminine and has been decorated with a new guilloché technique, which creates an elegant pleated surface that reflects the light in all directions. Diamonds on the bezel and the vibrant alligator strap add a touch of femininity, while the reversible case is an open canvas for a personalised engraving.  

Imperiale 36mm

Bring out the empress in her with this majestic rose gold and green tourmaline Imperiale watch available from Chopard’s e-boutique. The sophisticated architecture of the 36mm case - reminiscent of elements taken from classic Roman architecture -  imbues these ladies' watches with a distinguished personality. The contrast between the warm rose gold and the rich dark green dial is eye-catching as are the green tourmaline gemstones set in the crown and lugs.

Faubourg Manchette

The new Faubourg Manchette watch is très Hermès and its wide leather cuff reminds us of the origins of Hermès as a saddle and harness maker. Available in a variety of colours, these watches for women with the hallmark orange colour we associate with Hermès, house a diminutive 19.5mm Swiss quartz watch with a white lacquered dial accented with a coquette diamond at 12 o’clock. The smooth calfskin cuff sits on the wrist like a second skin and gently tapers to the stirrup-shaped buckle.

Vacheron Constantin
Harmony Chronograph
£50,550, available at The Watch Gallery

At the top of the luxury ladder is the historic 260-year-old Swiss watchmaking company Vacheron Constantin, and this stunning chronograph ladies' watch from the Harmony collection is available online at The Watch Gallery. The distinctive cushion-shaped case of the Harmony collection was inspired by a vintage 1928 Vacheron watch and, in this 37mm rose gold version, has been set with diamonds. Equipped with a chronograph movement, elapsed times can be measured by the two pushers on the side of the case.
