IWC offers the perfect watch for all occasions. The recently launched Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 comes in 18K red gold, 37mm in size, encrusted with 66 diamonds and 12 precious stones on the dial marking the hours and a moon phase display at 12 o’clock. The automatic watch is fitted with an alligator leather strap from the House of Santoni.
With 263 years of history, Vacheron Constantin never disappoints. It introduces Overseas Small Model for women, with bright blue dial and 37mm stainless steel case. It is water resistant to 150 metres and stands out with Maltese Cross-inspired stainless steel bezel and bracelet. The automatic watch comes with two and a half hands, with a Geneva Seal guaranteeing its quality.
Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic from Panerai is a sporty women’s watch with a cushion-shaped case, 38mm in size. The stainless steel watch is significantly slimmer, with blue Arabic numerals and luminous dots. The ivory dial perfectly matches the leather straps. For this model, Panerai uses automatic movements, which feature a 3-day power reserve. It is water resistant to 30 metres.
You can be a tough girl boss, an active woman, or a girly university student by day,
but when it comes to being the star of the party at night, every woman goes all out,
and that includes their choice of wristwatch.
The latest creation by Omega, the De Ville Trésor Collection comes with sparkling diamonds on stainless steel. The collection is available in two sizes — 36mm and 39mm. The silver dial includes unique transferred Roman numerals in blue and matching hands and satin straps. Precision is guaranteed with its quartz movement.
Another dazzling choice for women, Rendez-Vous Night & Day by Jaeger-LeCoultre comes in two sizes — 29mm and 34mm. The automatic mechanical movement can be seen through the crystal sapphire caseback. The 3-hand watch comes with a midnight blue dial and matching alligator straps. The bezel is set with 60 diamonds.
Piaget melts the heart of women around the world once again with the turquoise Limelight Gala. The most noticeable thing about the 32mm 18K white gold case is the single elongated lugs on either side. The case is set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds around the natural turquoise dial which perfectly matches the alligator straps. Precision is guaranteed with its Swiss quartz movement.
Your everyday watch is for, well, your everyday life, but sometimes you just need to
add a playful twist to your look to spice things up a bit. When there’s more to a watch
than telling the time, who says you can only have one?
Guess is synonymous with being chic and cool. The rose gold PVD-coated stainless steel watch is decorated with sparkling crystals, forming a heart shape on the silver dial. The Love Affair watch is 39mm in size, with hour, minute and second hands, powered by a quartz movement.
Women are complicated, and even for something whimsical, they still look for style. Michael Kors introduces Mini Sofie in 36mm, with rose gold-plated stainless steel bracelet and flower-shaped hour markers. The watch is encrusted with small crystals on the bezel, bracelet and dial. The hands are in matching rose gold colour. It is water resistant to 50 metres.
Known for simple design, Danish timepiece brand Skagen introduces Hald Slim in 34mm with a retro vibe featuring a Milanese bracelet. Coated in rose gold for extra elegance, the watch is decorated with white dial and Roman numerals. The hour and minute hands are simple and minimal. It is powered by a quartz movement and is water resistant to 30 metres.
