The latest iconic and feminine timepieces for the elegant, refined woman of today.
Andreas Altmann and his Giberg Haute Horlogerie team developed a specific manual-winding mechanical movement named the Giberg Flying Tourbillon “Trilevis 6118” Manufacture Calibre, fitted with streamlined red hour and minute hands. The tourbillon dial at 6 o’clock features ball bearings and is powered by two barrels mounted in series at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock, lending the watch a power reserve of 72 hours. The dial and caseback are made from glare-free sapphire, allowing the wearer to watch the mechanical ballet unfurl from any angle. The case measures 35mm in diameter and is nestled in a majestic structure of 47 × 97 mm. The watch is encrusted with 2,156 diamonds for a total of 8.7 carats, and is embellished with
a ruby cabochon crown that sits to the right, with another decorative crown positioned on the left for an exquisitely subtle and elegant symmetrical effect.
Hermes Medor Rock
With its new cabochon liked a pyramid-shaped stud, mirror-polished lacquered or lacquered and cross-set, the new Médor Rock watch combines a rebellious sprit with elegant style. Originally developed to reinforce hunting dog collars, pyramid-shaped studs appeared on belts from the 1930s onwards. They then inspired the Hermès dog collar bracelet, before appearing in the Médor secret watch, which conceals the hours and minutes beneath its cabochon, or reveals them with a press on the crown. This year, the Médor Rock watch features three new versions fitted with a triple tour strap: Mirror-polished, lacquered or lacquered and discreetly cross-set, the pyramid-shaped stud with its four domed facets forms a cabochon housing an understated silver-toned or lacquered dial swept over by slender facetted hands. Identical to the dial, the white, black, red or blue lacquer on the cabochon is finely applied over the various facets of the stud. It is then heated and polished to achieve the deep and intense radiance that lights up this watch creation.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table III
This forceful new interpretation of the legend of King Arthur’s Excalibur is inspired by the fabled island of Avalon, regarded as the place where the mighty sword was forged. Vigorous, valiant and virile, each highly detailed, low poly-sculpted, engraved and hand-finished knight has been entirely redesigned; each points his sword at the Avalon-inspired table sculpted from solid blue enamel blocks, a process requiring considerable dexterity and many patient hours of craftsmanship. Framed by an imposing Excalibur 45mm case with a solid caseback, fluted 18K pink gold bezel and matching crown, each dial takes a full 45 hours to create. This mechanical marvel is teamed with a matching blue alligator strap. Ensuring both precision and reliability, self-winding Calibre RD 821 – an exclusive in-house movement such as those equipping all Roger Dubuis timepieces – drives the hour and minute functions while delivering a 48-hour power reserve. Like the knights, every detail of the movement is hand-finished according to the traditional criteria governing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Charms Pavee Bracelet Joaillier
In 1920s, Van Cleef & Arpels created many charm bracelets, symbols of Luck. Designed in 2008, the Charms collection encapsulates a story of Luck in a round shape with a unique twist; the rotating charm that transforms each hour into a moment of luck. On this limited and numbered edition of 10 pieces, the emblematic rotating charm is revamped as a pompon, a reference to the Couture theme, dear to the Maison. At the heart of the Charms watch collection, the Charms Pavée Bracelet watch unveils a precious femininity. The Maison expresses itself as an expert jeweler with this gold bracelet set with diamonds.
Louis Moinet Skydance
This timepiece has now become a celebration of sidereal space, endowed with a radiant dial in Magic Blue, the precise composition of which is a closely-guarded secret, known to Louis Moinet alone. Unlike anything achieved using enamel, lacquer, or galvanisation, this particular blue provides unique depth and power, evocative of the immensity of the galaxy, with the sun shining brightly in its midst. At 6 o’clock the small seconds display features a sun with the rays pointing to the second, driven by an automatic caliber boasting a 42- hour power reserve. In the centre sit the hours and minutes hands, with their dewdrop tips – one of Louis Moinet’s signature symbols – here filled with a luminous substance. The timepiece features two distinctive levels of diamonds: a first set of six on the bezel, and twelve more marking the hours on the dial. The Skydance case is a combination of titanium and engraved steel – a more recent Louis Moinet hallmark. And in a final distinctive touch, each of the lugs to hold the strap is topped by a diamond – another first for Louis Moinet, and probably a first in watchmaking, too.
Dior La D de Dior
Precious refinement. The La D de Dior collection embodies the spirit of Dior jewelry, bold creativity, combinations of materials and colors and all the know-how of Swiss watchmaking. Inspired by the 70s and made with jeweller’s materials like gold, diamonds and ornamental stones. La D de Dior embodies the spirit of Dior Fine Jewellery and reconciles the jeweller’s expertise in the field of sparkling snowsettings and ornamental stone dials, the creative boldness of combining materials and colours and Swiss watchmaking savoir faire, including the mechanical Elite movement by the Zenith factory in some designs. The collection features La D de Dior Satine which is 36mm in steel with diamonds and pink mother-of-pearl, La D de Dior Satine Gold and Steel which is 36mm in steel with yellow gold, diamonds and white mother-of-pearl, and La Mini D de Dior Satine which is designed like a “satin ribbon” and covered in gold.
Three original new models are joining the elegant and timeless Rendez-Vous collection to present another communion between fine watchmaking and high jewellery. The new Rendez-Vous Tourbillon casts a spell on dynamic women who love to surround themselves with refined pieces that glitter with understated confidence. At 6 o’clock, the tourbillon reveals its spectacularly complex system of predominantly hand-decorated gears. Seemingly suspended in mid-air, its balance wheel oscillates within the carriage to perform one revolution every 60 seconds, setting the beat of its high- precision automatic movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978. While the two new interpretations of the Rendez-Vous Celestial, fitted with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 809/1, showcase an iconic function that truly expresses the collection’s name. As it marks out its constant course, the mysterious star serves as a reminder of the time of a future rendezvous.
