Going for gold: 5 Watches to own now
Hermès 'Faubourg' watch
If you're looking for a barely-there, minimal number, look no further than this miniature timepiece. With a diameter of just 15.5 mm, the petite watch is the smallest size in the history of the French luxury house. The white lacquered dials are set with a diamond at 12 o'clock with the additional option of a diamond-set rim. Keeping track of time has never looked this chic.
Jaeger-LeCoultre 'Reverso One Duetto Moon' watch
This pink-gold strap piece is for the classic timepiece enthusiasts; it's rectangular, manual-winding and it has a patrician look to it. Whether you pair it with a pantsuit to the office or a cocktail dress after work, this delicate and graceful watch will flatter any ensemble, and of course, female wrist.
Audemars Piguet 'Royal Oak' yellow gold watch
Picture this - the glowing gold of the new Royal Oak Quartz 33 mm edition is accentuated by the glittering 40 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel. On top of that; 18-carat yellow gold case, yellow gold applied hour-markers and Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating. With such a statement-making accessory embracing your wrist, you can forget about jewellery layering.
Bulgari 'Bulgari Piccola Catene' watch
Blurring the lines between jewellery and timepiece, this Bulgari number skilfully combines the two elements and reinterprets them into a glamorous accessory. The new model adorns the wrist with an elegant gold circle with its 18-carat bazel paved with 31 brilliant-cut diamonds, completed with a diamond-decorated plait chain bracelet. Double-duty at its best.
Van Cleef & Arpels 'Cadenas Sertie' bracelet watch
Truly an iconic piece, the original Cadenas watch was designed in 1935. Fast forward to a few decades later, the updated model has been fitted with a larger case and features a bigger mother-of-pearl dial, keeping up with the trend of larger watches for women. With the yellow-gold angled case decorated with pavé diamonds of various sizes, you can now discreetly consult the time (perfect for bad dates) while enjoying an exceptionally elegant accessory.
