1. Cartier

Le Cirque Animalier de Cartier Collection

This Cartier collection features animal-inspired diamond watches, which combine the extravagance of diamonds with animal motifs and enamel to create pieces that showcase Cartier's jewellery-making skills.

2. Ulysse Nardin

Caprice Tiger

Stars and gems grace the Caprice Tiger, as the tiger form sparkles with diamonds and looks out through emerald eyes, while rubies mark the hours. The automatic winding movement features a visible diamond-set rotor in 22-carat gold.

3. Harry Winston

Avenue Squared with New York dial

This glittering timepiece features a dual time-zone display, with two separate hour and minute dials, and the bold square case enhances the distinct masculine aesthetic and the strong architectural look.

4. Sarcar Solitaire

White Gold

A one-carat diamond spins gracefully within a rotating decor above a bed of diamonds, and the virtually invisible setting of this watch enables light to flood through all its facets.

5. Rolex

Submariner Emerald Black

A legend since its first appearance in the 1950s, this Submariner's unidirectional rotatable bezel is set with 36 emeralds and 12 diamonds, echoing the version introduced in 2003 on the 50th anniversary of the model.

6. Breitling


Embodying the perfect blend of luxury and performance, the quintessential Breitling mechanical chronograph now appears in a new jewellery version, featuring an original gem setting style which sets a vibrant, upbeat tempo.
