"A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl's best friend," sang Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 movie, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. That sentiment holds true today, judging by these exquisite timepieces.
1. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady Datejust
Crafted in 18k yellow gold, the new Rolex ladies' watch is fully paved with brilliant-cut diamonds—more than 1,000 of them—for maximum shine. The case measures a slender 28mm in diameter with a Cyclops lens at '3' for improved legibility of the date. It is matched with the President bracelet (which only appears in selective Datejust models) featuring three-piece links with ceramic inserts for flexibility, and a concealed folding Crownclasp.
It is not just a pretty face; the watch is endowed with Perpetual Calibre 2236 with Syloxi silicon hairspring that is 10 times more precise, which qualifies for the Rolex Superlative Chronometer certification that requires a precision of at least -2/+2 seconds per day.
