Geneva’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie turned the spotlight on women’s watches, with new materials, dedicated complications and sparkling stones forming a feminine trilogy.

 

Cartier
Precious presence.
A sublime ensemble of white gold, Mozambique rubies and diamonds, the Trait d’Eclat watch wraps the wrist in a delicate ribbon of light, scintillating in the atmospheric ambience of swish soirées. Powering it is the 101 calibre, a hand-wound mechanical movement.

 

Richard Mille
Graphical contrasts.
The audacious Richard Mille’s much-favoured NTPT carbon is no longer just a man thing! The matt material renowned for protecting calibres and conferring bold aesthetics now comes lit up with diamonds to enhance feminine wrists. The finest example of this prowess? The RM 037.

 

Van Cleef & Arpels
Fluttering wings.
“Enchanted Nature” is brought to life this year through the poetic Lady Arpels™ Papillon Automate watch. Its exclusive new automaton module randomly flutters the wings of a pretty butterfly flitting among flowers as time passes.
