The new online platform unveiled a ton of nifty women's watches; these are the ones you'll want to wear forever

Piaget's Limelight Gala Precious

Asymmetrical lugs and a gradient gem-set bezel define Piaget’s Limelight Gala Precious. It’s elegant. It’s sexy. It’s everything you’d want in a woman’s watch.

The maison is well-known for its standout high jewellery models and this year’s roster of watches—many of which are from the iconic Limelight Gala collection, which was first unveiled in 1973—doesn’t disappoint.

A shimmering white gold bracelet is hand-engraved and fits superbly on the wrist. Hundreds of tiny gold links are tightly assembled by a master chainsmith, and are decorated using a Palace Décor style—one of Piaget’s best-known motifs, which requires eight hours of work per watch.

An additional two hours is needed to complete the Grand Feu dial, which is draped in a translucent blue enamel that’s oven-fired multiple times. Last but not least, a handful of diamonds and sapphires are set along the curved bezel using a Serti Descendu technique, which magnifies the stones' brilliance.

Cartier's Pasha de Cartier

Designed by Swiss watch legend Gérald Genta, the Pasha de Cartier collection made headlines when it was introduced back in 1985.

The model's square-inside-a-circle design was unexpected and quickly coveted by collectors worldwide—and has been enthusiastically revived for 2020. It's available in steel or gold, with or without diamonds.

A favourite on the secondary market, the Pasha now comes in new sizes and with new details, including a QuickSwitch system, which allows the wearer to swap the watch’s steel, gold or leather straps with a single push.

Although the collection is unisex, the Pasha de Cartier 35mm model in pink gold set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds is really pretty. Wear with the brand’s purple or grey alligator strap for added elegance.

Hermès' Cape Cod Martelée

The new Cape Cod Martelée takes inspiration from Hermès watch designer Henri d’Origny's 1991 Cape Cod model, which is well-known for its square dial and elongated lugs that form a subtle rectangle.

In French, martlée refers to a hammer-like tool, which was used on this new timepiece to create the case's unusual mottled pattern.

The patina-type effect is also used on the Cape Cod's dial, which is finished with a thin lick of translucent black lacquer. It really gives this understated watch an eye-catching quality that's surprisingly ladylike.

Vacheron Constantin's Traditionnelle Tourbillon

Vacheron Constantin has unveiled its first ever ladies' self-winding tourbillon—and Tatler Asia is thrilled.

Powered by the watchmaker's in-house 2160 Calibre, which was introduced in 2018, the 188-part movement is beautifully thin; measuring only 5.65mm thick.

An entirely hand-bevelled Maltese cross is visible from the wrist as part of the open-worked tourbillon carriage. Meanwhile, the 39mm white gold case is smothered with 559 brilliant- and baguette-cut diamonds that weigh more than 6.5 carats. After all, diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Available exclusively in Vacheron Constantin boutiques, choose between a blue satin or alligator leather strap.

Jaeger-LeCoultre's Reverso One Red-Wine

Jaeger-LeCoultre's Reverso One gained a cult following during the Art Deco era thanks to its sophisticated elongated case and sharp-looking hour and minute hands.

Almost a century after its launch (the Reverso was first designed in 1931), JLC has released a striking new red-wine dial, which is achieved by applying numerous layers of lacquer over a subtle sunray guilloché pattern that pops against the watch's polished steel case.

Slick and slender, this swivel-cased watch successfully pays homage to the Reverso's heritage while simultaneously looking cool and contemporary. Audrey Hepburn said it best: “There is a shade of red for every woman.”
