Jewellery watches are very much increasing, as the selection of fashions only appears to be growing. Here, we pick our own winners of this most-coveted Best Jewellery Watch award, including creations out of Bulgari, Chanel and Dior.
Taking a Look at the dazzling array of bejewelled timepieces on screen at Baselworld, The Jewellery Editor Award for Best Jewellery Watch most certainly goes to Bulgari’s magnificent Serpenti Incantati. A fresh spin on the timeless Serpenti, in this variant the diamond and rubelite serpent coils not only round the wrist, but seductively around the dial. The bracelet on these high jewellery watches is made up of the articulated body of a snake and was inspired by a vintage Bulgari Art Deco brooch in the 1930s.
Next is Your Jewellery Editor Award for Best Use of Colour at a Jewellery Watch. This accolade goes to Dior’s Grand Soir KaleiDiorscope ladies’ watches. The denim straps include a dash of lightness and informality to these dazzling Dior watches.
Our final Jewellery Editor Award for the Best Secret Watch belongs to Chanel’s Les Eternelles Morganite. The iconic matelassé – or quilted motif – that Gabrielle Chanel took from the world of horseracing for the mythical 2.55 handbag, emigrates to high jewelry, and also this supple white gold cuff sits like fabric on the wrist.
Thus, to the winners, please receive our applause and most heart-felt congratulations for your award winning watches and, the next year, we expect to have a trophy.
