Pink Power: Rose-tinted watches to score in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Paint the town pink
As we venture further into the month of October, it’s time to introduce you to graceful dials in soft shades of pink to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36
Why not go for Rolex’s undisputed classic with a distinct candy-pink dial? The 36mm model makes a fantastic unisex piece that features the brand’s 3230 self-winding movement. Timeless in both function and form, the timepiece is paired with an Oystersteel case and link bracelet.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier
This elegant pink creation by Cartier is a vibrant piece that would be perfect for any occasion. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier comes in a modest diameter of 33mm, built with an automatic winding mechanical movement. Housing the pink guilloché dial is a steel case, perfected with a unique fluted crown at the side of the piece that’s set with a carbon synthetic spinel wrapped around sapphire crystals for a beautiful touch of blue. This piece also has a water resistance of 3 bars, meaning that it can withstand minimal, accidental splashes of water.
Zenith Chronomaster Sport Pink
Zenith returns with a limited-edition timepiece specially designed to commemorate Breast Cancer Month. Meet the Zenith Chronomaster Sport Pink. This watch adds to the extensive collection that the brand has created to support the cause since 1985. Reimagining an iconic Zenith favourite, this model is a subtle pink-toned dial that excels in design, quality and purpose. One of the interesting features of this watch is the polished steel bezel that’s engraved with 1/10th of the second scale—setting itself apart from existing models of the collection apart from its colourful face.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding
A member of Audemars Piguet’s 15452 series, this Royal Oak Selfwinding 37mm model comes in an elegant combination of 18-carat white gold and 40 brilliant-cut pink sapphires and rubies, which offer a subtle gradation. The timepiece also features a rhodium-toned dial enhanced by a “Grand Tapisserie” pattern as well as a new matching light grey satin-finished calfskin leather strap for a seamless fit.
Breguet Tradition 7035
Part of the Tradition collection, this watch features an elite, open-worked mechanical movement with a next-level setting of rubies and pink sapphires in graduated hues of pink. The technique of snow setting is used to allow the placement of different-sized diamonds into the bezel of the 18-karat rose gold case and on the strap buckle, which leaves the limited-edition timepiece boasting a total of about 1.6 carats.
Chanel J12 Pink Blush
This rendition of Chanel’s iconic J12 watch accentuates its immaculately white dial, bezel and hands with a dash of powder pink for a decidedly more feminine, limited-edition interpretation. With only 1,200 pieces available, the watch seduces with its graphic look, where coloured indexes and numerals bring a gentle contrast to its sporty shape.
Richard Mille 07-02 Automatic Sapphire
Best known for its experimentation with materials, Richard Mille’s RM 07-02 Automatic Sapphire favours a transparent coloured case made out of solid pink sapphire in replacement of the traditional 18-karat gold. The central dial section features a piece of smokey mother of pearl, while dozens of small diamonds are set around the dial and into the winding rotor on the back, alongside a solid red gold movement––making it a giant gem in itself.
Chopard Happy Sport
Since 1933, Chopard’s Happy Sport collection has always celebrated joie de vivre as an emblem of the brand’s creativity and boldness—and it’s no wonder why. Playful, free-spirited diamonds and pink sapphire dance around the oval watch while its automatic winding mechanism sits within an ethical rose gold case that’s flanked by a glossy pink alligator strap.
Harry Winston Emerald
Combining the glamour of jewels and the practicality of a watch, models from the Harry Winston Emerald collection bring the best of both worlds with its distinctive octagonal shape and unique dial. This particular petite piece stands out in soft pink tones that are enhanced by brilliant-cut sapphires, diamonds and mother-of-pearl and comes with the option of a matching satin strap or white gold bracelet.
