The case for geometry

 
 trend montres aout 2016

As a change from round cases, elegant women state their sophistication through rectangular watches.

 

Jaeger-LeCoultre
Inspirant anniversaire
To celebrate its icon’s 85th birthday the watchmaker has launched the Reverso One High Jewelry featuring the Duetto concept: glittering aventurine on one side, a more classical dial on the other. Katie Rodgers of Paperfashion.net has produced a series of gouaches, This is the One, inspired by this little gem’s details.

 

Boucheron
Celestial poetry
The Reflet model featuring vertical gadroons has spawned a numbered limited edition of 88 watches christened Bleu de Jodhpur. The sapphire crystal reveals a secret hologram signature depicting the Vendôme column, and the dial of blue aventurine glass set with one diamond inspires daydreams.

 

Graff Diamonds

Parisian chic.
The London jeweller pays homage to Place Vendôme with this watch in white or pink gold, inspired by the architectural beauty of the Paris temple of luxury. Its crown is a nod to the top of the Vendôme column while the indices imitate the arches of the store entrances.
