The Watch: 
La Grande Classique De Longines

With its minimalist design, iconic flat case and sleek profile, the La Grande Classique De Longines truly lives up to its name. The elegant timepiece is available in 24, 29, 26 and 37mm sizes and sports a blue sunray dial with inlaid diamond or Roman numeral hour markers.  A sophisticated metallic mesh bracelet completes the look of this truly classic timekeeper.

The Stylish Mom
Personality: Her dress sense is a reflection of her personality and whether it’s chic, trendy or vintage; she’s able to pull it all off effortlessly.
The Watch: Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso 38mm

You can always tell a Panerai on someone’s wrist even when you’re across the room thanks to its signature style and size. But now, the Italian watchmaker has produced its iconic Luminor Due in 38mm, which fits perfectly on a lady’s wrist. Exuding the typical Panerai style and panache, the timepiece beats on with the OP XXXIV calibre, a mechanical movement with automatic winding and a power reserve of three days.

The Fashionable Mom
Personality:  
Forever fashionable and fabulous, she’s managed to keep ahead of the fashion curve with a head turning sense of style.
The Watch:
Cartier Revelation D’Une Panthère

Ever since it was revealed early this year, the Cartier Revelation D’Une Panthère has stolen the show at SIHH as well as Basel 2018. At first glances it’s easy to see why with its 37mm 18k pink gold case and diamond encrusted bezel. But the key feature of this timepiece is its ability to make a panther motif, made with tiny yellow gold beads, appear with a flick of a wrist.  To ensure the Revelation D’Une Panthère is able to match any ensemble, the timepiece comes in a choice of black, red and green with matching Alligator straps.

The Art Loving Mom
Personality:
She’s loves objects of beauty and design and has an affinity towards the arts, irrespective of its forms. Above all else, she is both creative and imaginative with a penchant for unstructured activities.
The Watch:
Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Aérostiers

The latest Métiers d’Art collection celebrates the history of hot air ballooning and the pioneers of flight. All five of these ornamental timepieces are made with the highest level of craftsmanship and depict five iconic hot air balloon flights taken in France between 1783 and 1785. Masterpieces in their own right, each timepiece utilises the Caliber 2460 G4/1, which displays the time, day and date via four disks, with the indications appearing in the enamel partitions of the watch face.
