A Touch Of Glitter

A Touch Of Glitter

Merging the worlds of jewellery and watchmaking, a diamond watch is the ultimate accessory for sophisticated women

Diamonds are undoubtedly a girl’s best friend. However when these highly-sought after gemstones are incorporated into timepieces, they immediately inject a welcome touch of class, sophistication and elegance.

What makes diamond set watches so appealing is the shine it brings to the overall design. Beyond functionality and durability, a diamond watch raises the fashion stakes a fair bit, acting as both a piece of jewellery as well as social statement. For those looking to add a bit of sparkle and style to their watch collection, these examples will add a welcome shine to your wrist.

Sophisticated Beauty

The Tudor Clair De Rose is the quintessential ladies watch that is gorgeous on the outside and technical on the inside. Exuding a stylish and elegant design, the timepiece features a 30mm polished steel case with a self-winding Calibre 2671 mechanical movement beating within. The opaline dial is immaculately presented with Roman numerals at each quarter hour along with eight diamonds. Protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, the overall design is made complete with a steel screw-down winding crown, with transparent blue spinel cabochon along with a steel bracelet with folding clasp.

Elegant Touch

The Eliros collection has grown to become one of the Maurice Lacroix’s most popular creations due to its fresh design and stylish aesthetics. The Eliros Moonphase 35mm further raises the appeal with the addition of a moonphase display set within a brilliant mother-of-pearl dial. The addition of diamonds – eight set within the dial itself – adds a welcome dash of sophistication and grace to the overall ensemble. The quartz powered timepiece arrives in a 35mm case made out of stainless steel which is attached to a mesh or blue leather strap.

Serpent Style

The Serpenti Tubogas Watch clearly fits the criteria of a high-jewellery accessory for any fashionable woman. The design of the watch radiates the sinuosity of the snake, complete with shapely lines formed by the Tubogas – metal bands wrapped around the central steel coil. With its tubular litheness and flexibility it effortlessly glides unto any woman’s wrist. There are several versions of the timepiece available, all of which are quite stunning in appearance. However the Serpenti Tubogas single spiral watch with 18kt rose gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds and a silver opaline dial and 18kt rose gold bracelet is surely the one that is able to radiate glamour and prestige deserving of this iconic watch from Bulgari.

Cloud Nine

With its skeletonised design the Arnold & Son Nebula Lady exudes a number of details that needs to be closely inspected in order to appreciate fully. The beauty of this creation is the attention to detail and balance especially with all its components designed to blend harmoniously as one. The dial itself doubles as a bridge to support the movement’s gears. An outstanding skeleton watch intended specifically for the modern woman, the 41.50mm 18Kt rose gold case is also set with 90 brilliant-cut diamonds. That however shouldn’t take away the fact that the Nebula Lady is one of the finest pieces of haute horlogerie that Arnold & Son has made to date.

Starry Starry Night

The Oris Artelier Grande Lune, Date Diamonds boasts a moon phase complication featuring a deep midnight blue background adorned with a detailed printed moon and a series of stars arranged in formation. The idea behind the piece is to allow the watch to reflect light and shine like the stars above. To carry that effect, Oris has equipped the Artelier Grande Lune with a silver dial finished with a delicate, intricate guilloche pattern along with 11 diamonds that act as hour markers. The 36mm stainless steel case is also set with 72 brilliant-cut diamonds to ensure this automatic moonphase continues to shine at any time of the day.
