#WednesdayWishlist: Statement timepieces
Time is of the essence
Cai Mei Khoo, Editor-in-Chief: Bulgari Divas' Dream Lapis Lazuli watch
Bulgari's Diva collection is a tribute to womanhood; a celebration of the woman who knows what she wants, yet retains an air of sophistication and elegance. Reminiscent of the Dolce Vita years, the sensuous curves of the watch highlights its femininity. Beneath the graceful exterior though, lies a force to be reckoned with—a mechanical self-winding movement with 42-hour power reserve that powers the single retrograde minutes hand and jumping hours, as seen through the rounded aperture at 6 o'clock. Adorned with brilliant-cut diamonds on the case and dial, the Divas' Dream Lapis Lazuli watch is the horological embodiment of soft power.
Loh Wei Yeen, Fashion and Beauty Writer: Chanel Boy.Friend Tweed
Inspired by elements from a masculine wardrobe, Chanel's Boy.Friend's octagon face harkens back to their iconic Première watch that also happens to be a tribute to the legendary N°5 bottle and to Place Vendôme. How often do you find a watch that's this emblematic and heritage-rooted? Not often, I think. The latest tweed version (actually a steel bracelet with a tweed motif) unveiled during Baselworld 2016 is tres chic, especially with its steel bezel set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds and polished angles and high-precision quartz movement.
Rachel Au, Lifestyle Writer: Omega Constellation Tahiti
Omega's new Constellation Tahiti series made me believe in love at first sight. With its classic look that had been given a modern finish, its design is one-of-a-kind. Encircled with a gorgeous diamond-paved bezel, the dial is captivatingly patterned with Tahiti mother-of-pearl, making it a stunning visual pleaser-a statement timepiece. The beauty of it, however, is how it will match every outfit for every occasion for all of time to come and that's one statement worth talking about.
Tan Su Fen, Editorial Assistant: Jaeger Le-Coultre Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin Duetto Duo
If there comes a day where I could be the proud owner of a Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso, it would have to be the Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin Duetto Duo. The object of sophistication and elegance in its pink gold case (the right kind of pink gold), while the main dial means business with its classic silvered guilloche and sunray-brushed face, the dial on the flip side radiates femininity with its soft pink mother-of-pearl finish and sparkling diamonds on the case borders.
