Time For The Ladies

WITH INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY CELEBRATED ON 8 MARCH, WE TAKE A LOOK AT SOME TIMEPIECES THAT FIT PERFECTLY FOR THE WOMEN OF TODAY

Every year since 1975, the world comes together to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March. The celebration is rooted in labour movements at the turn of the 20th century, and over the years it has evolved to become a day to recognise women around the world for their achievements. It is also a day to commemorate women’s rights and to advance the status of women across the globe. In a tribute to women of the world and to celebrate International Women’s Day, we take a look at some iconic timepieces and how each correlates with the style and personality of today’s modern woman.

In a tribute to women of the world and to celebrate International Women’s Day, we take a look at some iconic timepieces and how each correlates with the style and personality of today’s modern woman.

Baume & Mercier Classima Lady

There are many timepieces that lay claim to the term ‘timeless classic’ but the Classima Lady is one of the few that truly reflects that in its design. Inspired by a model from 1965, this modern iteration from Baume & Mercier fits perfectly with a lady that oozes confidence and sophistication. The collection is made available in a choice of 27mm, 31mm and 34mm forms with both quartz and automatic movements. However, the Classima 10326 may well be the most stunning of the lot with a 31mm case set with a mother-of-pearl dial, featuring eight glittering diamonds as time markers.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Shooting Star Flying Tourbillon

Its striking design may steal glances, but this 18-karat pink gold watch is the embodiment of watchmaking excellence. Measuring 36mm in diameter, the timepiece is equipped with a RD510SQ Skeleton Flying Tourbillon and comes with a ‘Poinçon de Genève’ stamp of quality from the Watchmaking School of Geneva on the case back. The hand-wound mechanical calibre offers a power reserve of 60 hours. The golden skeleton dial is further enhanced by 10 round diamonds that serve as hour markers and coloured enamel stars on the dial that delivers a fitting contrast to this stunning beauty.

Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date Ladies

With its clean and uncluttered design, this exquisite number from Maurice Lacroix is an ideal fit for a woman who evokes a style that is both effortless as well as stylish. The 30mm timepiece sports a rose gold PVD case, which is water resistant to 50m. The quartz powered timepiece arrives with a beautiful sun-brushed finish blue dial set with eight diamonds and rhodium hands. The look is made complete with a matching blue calf leather strap fitted with the iconic ‘M’ monogram.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day

Perfectly suited towards someone with a dazzling personality, the new Rendez-Vous is certainly a sight to behold. Available in 36mm white or pink gold with alligator leather straps in shades of blue or taupe, the timepiece merges the worlds of fine jewellery and exquisite watchmaking perfectly. The key design feature of this timepiece is its new adornment featuring mother-of-pearl on the dial and its three rows of diamonds –a total of 186. Powering this beauty is an automatic movement, equipped with a 38 hour power reserve.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m

Featuring beautiful 28mm, 34mm and 38mm symmetrical cases with integrated bracelets, this ladies collection from Omega complements the disposition of the modern go-getter. The collection boasts cases made of stainless steel and 18k Sedna gold with dials ranging from clean and crisp mother-of-pearl dials set with diamond hour-markers to wave-patterned dials with indexes shaped like sailboat hulls. Wearers are assured of the highest level of precision and performance with a choice of movements that include the Omega Master Chronometer calibres 8800 or 8801 as well as the quartz calibre 4061.
