Precious gems and materials make for sparkling new watches
Perfectly timed for the Year of the Snake, the latest Serpenti model features two coils in white gold with diamonds, agate and a mother-of-pearl dial. Another version comes in pink gold with onyx waves and a black sapphire dial.
With a stylised landscape dial and foliage-inspired bracelet, this symbolic timepiece celebrates the brand’s natural heritage and exquisite craftsmanship. More than 450 diamonds and sapphires are offset by mother-of-pearl and individually crafted gold leaves.
Featuring an array of precious stones including amethysts and pink sapphires, the jeweller’s iconic Instrumentino collection recalls Byzantine mosaics and “cabinets of curiosities”. The intricate piece also has two time displays and a matching bracelet.
A marriage of design and mechanics, this 36mm timepiece features the HW1029 movement, a date aperture, three subdials finished with circular snail patterns, and up to 372 brilliant-cut diamonds. It’s also water resistant to 100 metres.
Le Pendentif Boule
This delicate pendant timepiece comes in white gold with a smooth grey alligator backing, or a diamond snow setting with a matte indigo alligator backing. The natural mother-of-pearl dial features rhodium-plated, pearl-shaped hour markers.
The German watchmaker's new women's collection offers feminine pieces with a distinctive cushion shape that dates back to the 1920s. The high-jewellery version has 90 diamonds set on a mother-of-pearl dial in the shape of a stylised peacock tail.
