With the watchmaking industry’s famed awards ceremony, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève — or as it’s more commonly known, GPHG — fast approaching, we thought we’d mention a few more nominated watches that you should be keeping an eye on.
But we thought it would also be pertinent to mention three of the best ladies timepieces that have been given the nod from the award ceremony’s expert judges.
Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air Paved
Featuring the most modern jumping hours complication in the world, the Louis Vuitton Tambour Spin Time Air stunned the horological community when it was first unveiled a decade ago. This particular Spin Time has been given the full pavé diamond treatment, and when combined with the aforementioned complication, we reckon this exquisite timepiece will be a pretty compelling candidate for the “Ladies Complication” genre.
Chanel J12 Calibre 12.1
The Chanel J12 has been a stalwart of the luxury ladies watch genus since its debut back in 1999. However, not wanting the J12 to rest on its laurels, director of the Chanel Watch Creation Studio, Arnaud Chastaingt, has revitalised the eponymous timepiece for 2019. The new J12 now features a host of fresh aesthetic features, as well as an all-new Calibre 12.1 self-winding movement, which benefits from chronometer certification and an impressive 70 hours of power reserve.
Bulgari Serpenti Seduttori Pink Gold and Diamonds
One of the most iconic ladies watches ever produced by Bulgari, the Serpenti has a long and storied history with the Italian luxury marque. This year has seen the introduction of the Serpenti Seduttori, an entirely new take on the emblematic timepiece. A lot of attention has gone into the design of the watch’s new bracelet, which gorgeously mimics that of a snake’s scales while still remaining not only functional but also beautiful to behold. This particular example is finished in 18k pink gold and is affixed with diamonds that line both sides of the unique case’s bezel.
