SIX EXQUISITE TIMEPIECES ESPECIALLY FOR YOUR VALENTINE’S

Contrary to popular belief, the wristwatch was first designed for women. Men carried a pocket watch, it was the IT fashion accessory for men then. It is believed that the first woman to ever wear a wristwatch was Elizabeth I, which was gifted to her by Robert Dudley, her suspected lover. It was only much later in history, sometime during the beginning of World War 1, that it became fashionable for men to wear wristwatches.
Since then, wristwatches have been primarily designed for men, especially the high mechanical ones. However, over the years the trend has evolved and today, women’s timepieces are a big part of leading watch brands collections. From high jewellery pieces to mechanical and high complications, women’s timepieces are a work on beauty and art.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, Swiss Watch Gallery presents an array of exquisite timepieces especially for your Valentine.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendezvous Night & Day Cinema

Dedicated to the wrists of women who appreciate precious objects. Reminiscing the stars of cinema, shown by its diamond set bezel and day/night indicator at six o’clock, the Grande Maison takes great delight in paying tribute to Cinema and has created an exclusive edition, that pairs watchmaking tradition with feminine elegance. The new Rendez-Vous Night & Day performs an unprecedented role with bold staging, showcasing crimson red on both its iconic function disc at 6 o’clock and on its glistening, bright red alligator strap. It also appears on the winding crown in the guise of a garnet cabochon as red as film-star lips.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle

At Vacheron Constantin Manufacture, ladies’ watches have been a central play of the Manufacture’s long history. Dating back to the 19th century, a period that saw the emergence of ladies’ wristwatches, the Maison has developed a new Traditionnelle moon phase and power reserve model. A subtle and refined horological complication revealed in feminine interpretation. Blossomed within the rounded curves of a delicately gem-set case, the hand wound calibre 1410 beats gently at its heart, entirely develop and crafted at and by the Manufacture. Featuring the most poetic of all complications, the moon phase display is paired with the charm of a shimmering white mother-of-pearl dial. The understated elegance of this model matches with a grey alligator leather strap, accentuating the timeless style of a timepiece that leaves nothing to chance.

Piaget Limelight Gala

An extraordinary woman surely deserves an extraordinary timepiece. The Limelight Gala watch is truly a remarkable piece, with a case diameter of 32 mm and in 18K rose gold set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 1.75 ct) and enhanced with a Milanese 18K rose gold bracelet. The Limelight Gala was first introduced in the 1970’s and still holds a certain vintage charm and sophistication.
