Dior V111 Grand Bal Plissé Ruban

With a generous helping of white diamonds, a dash of pink and a metallic finish, the new 36mm Dior V111 Grand Bal Plissé Ruban is as delicate as it is edgy. Its automatic movement features a functional rotor that is placed on the dial instead of at the back. Every bit a Dior piece, the rotor has been set with yellow-gold plates and diamonds to make it look like a pleated petticoat interlaced with a silky ribbon.

Hermès Cape Cod

Vibrancy has been added to the brand’s Cape Cod collection with new colours for its dial and leather straps. This year, the lacquered dials come in subtly graded shades of red and brown. Straps, on the other hand, are available in indigo blue, graphite matt or black matt alligator leather. At the heart of the piece is the manufacture Hermès H1912 movement.

Chanel Première Camélia Skeleton

After presenting the Monsieur de Chanel, which houses the brand’s first manufacture movement, last year, the maison has put its second in-house calibre in a stunning women’s watch—the Première Camélia Skeleton. At 28.5 x 37mm, the sophisticated Première comes with a bezel set with 42 baguette and 52 brilliant-cut diamonds, and its skeletonised dial features 246 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Harry Winston Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom

Using diamonds and pink sapphires, Harry Winston captures the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms on the mother-of-pearl dial of its new Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom timepiece. The charming scene is framed by a diamond-set case whose shape is patterned after the facade of the brand’s flagship salon on New York’s Fifth Avenue. 

Corum Golden Bridge Rectangle

Corum presents a more refined and design-oriented version of its classic Golden Bridge, with the dial and movement given a more geometric, art- deco vibe. Complementing the case and movement are elaborate gold microstructures in the form of Roman numerals that are suspended and sandwiched between Corum’s signature bridge movement.
