Perfectly precious high jewellery watches

A galaxy of precious gemstones to make your time more valuable. Feast your eyes on our favourite high jewellery timepieces for 2017.

  • Sensuality, curves, diamonds and a dose of creative licence are the hallmarks of the new Eccentrica ladies’ watch by de GRISOGONO, equipped with a mechanical automatic movement (£77,000).
  • A spellbinding high jewellery watch from Dior depicting a heavenly galaxy twinkling with opals, gold pleating and draping magically revealed under the transparent rotor set with diamonds and gold inserts (POA).
  • Van Cleef & Arpels revisits its famous Cadenas watch, this time swathed in diamonds and emeralds. First introduced in 1935 and said to have been inspired by the Duchess of Windsor, its dynamic avant-garde lines and impeccably snow-set diamonds convert this watch into a piece of high jewellery (£162,400).
  • Cartier’s famous mascot, the panther, is decked out in diamonds with black lacquer spots and emerald eyes and engaged in a game of chasing a diamond hour ball around the dial. A playful take on the famous feline brought to life with a mechanical movement developed by Cartier (€150,000).
  • From the famous house of diamonds, Graff’s new Spiral watch is inspired by the concept of endless love. This feminine timepiece literally swirls with an infinity of pavé diamonds swathing every curve and contour of its case and dial (from £11,980) 
  • Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph watch

  • Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon watch
