6 Enchanting Watches Deserving Of Heirloom Status
Piaget Colourful Symphony Watch
A unique piece, the 18k white gold case dazzles with two cushion-cut Sri Lankan emeralds, 14 marquise-cut emeralds and 32 brilliant-cut diamonds. The dial is opal in colours that match the green and blue of the precious stones.
Chopard L’Heure du diamant
Set entirely with brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of 30.1 carats, the 1970s-style oval case shape is matched with an Australian opal dial that enchants with its natural inclination to change colours.
Bulgari Serpenti Misteriosi My Handcuff
Crafted in white gold, this handcuff watch boasts a serpent’s head in a striking pose. Fuelling its exuberance are 30 malachites, 18 marquise-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds, as well as two pear-shaped rubellites for the serpent’s eyes and one round rubellite on its head.
Cartier Panthere Duo High Jewellery
It’s a double dose of the French house’s signature panther on this wristwatch shaped out of two felines with their paws meeting around the dial. The intricate composition of white gold, brilliant-cut diamonds, onyx spots and emerald eyes gives the cats an opulent twist.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra “Jewellery”
The undulating waves on the dial are crafted in the proprietary 18k Sedna gold and paved with 191 diamonds. The hour markers are marquise-cut rubies while the bezel glitters with diamonds. But it’s not just a fine-looking jewellery watch as it is also endowed with the robust Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 that offers superlative precision, performance and anti-magnetic resistance.
