1. Audemars Piguet: Royal Oak Frosted Gold
We have already talked about this timepiece, which makes a statement for its brilliance and its sporting but ultra-feminine attitude.
2. Bulgari: Serpenti Incantati
Not just a watch and not just a jewel, but both, together, and at a high level.
3. Cartier: Panthères et Colibri
An extraordinary example of horological ‘sertissage’ combined with a particularly interesting complication.
4. Chanel: J12-XS
The fashion house shrunk its magic wand and made its icon, the J12, in size XS. A real accessory for your wrist, to wear every day.
5. Chopard: Happy Diamonds
The legendary timepiece of the Swiss house blew out 40 candles, showing that “diamonds are (still) girls’ best friends”!
6. Jaeger LeCoultre: Reverso Louboutin
The iconic model is now “cooler” thanks to the bold straps and dials designed by Monsieur Louboutin for Atelier Reverso.
7. Parmigiani: Tonda Metropolitaine Selene
Very elegant, thanks to the white mother of pearl dial, but also complicated, with an indication of moon phases developed in-house.
8. Piaget: Limelight Gala Bracelet Milanese
Already winner of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève prize for the best female model of the year, this wonderful example of design and manufacturing could not but deserve a mention in our top 10.
9. Rolex: Datejust 39
A triumph of “sertissage” of precious stones, the “jewel in the Crown” of Rolex.
10. Van Cleef & Arpels: Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons
An extraordinary example of the “Complications poétiques”, the complications in the name of the Parisian brand romance.
