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).
