5 Of The Best Technical Watches For Women
Because women and conplications go hand in hand
A total of 351 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 4.37 carats) adorning this timepiece from the “king of diamonds” is reason enough for anyone to want to get up close to it. And you’ll be further rewarded for doing so, as it offers more visual spectacle with its mother-of-pearl dial hosting an hours and minutes sub-dial and a pair of retrograde counters showing the seconds and day of the week. No mere wallflower, it is powered by an automatic movement boasting a silicon balance spring and superlative hand finishing that can be admired though a sapphire caseback.
Christophe Claret – Marguerite
Bound to set hearts aflutter, the Marguerite is a rare example of how serious watchmaking know-how can be utilised to realise a capricious timepiece. As a pair of butterflies, powered by an in-house automatic movement, flit around a daisy blossom to indicate the time, its dial conceals a customisable message that can be revealed by pressing the pusher at two o’clock. Flip the white or red gold case over and one can engage in a game of chance via its winding rotor and a cut-out caseback marked with “YES” and “NO” engravings. Limited to 30 pieces for each version.
Breguet – Tradition Dame 7038
What a difference a little tweak makes. Breguet’s Tradition line of watches generally cater to masculine tastes, but not this time. With its central barrel adorned with a rosette pattern, the Dame 7038 model emanates delicate femininity. A bezel of 68 brilliant-cut diamonds on its 37mm rose gold case doesn’t hurt either. Otherwise, there’s no mistaking the patrimony of the timepiece, with its unique movement architecture (a signature of Abraham-Louis Breguet’s ‘souscription’ watches) exposed in the front, alongside an off-centre sub-dial showing the time.
