Women's watches at Watches & Wonders 2021

The new annual watchmaking gathering Watches & Wonders has just gone entirely digital. Thirty-eight brands took part, many of them from the erstwhile SIHH and Baselworld: Cartier, Chanel, Piaget, Chopard, Baume&Mercier and Hermès. As usual, the women’s watches (or which can be worn by women) were few in number and consisted mainly of re-editions of existing models – but there were some dazzling surprises, such as the two watches entirely covered with stylized scales by Cartier and Bulgari.

  • Cartier - "Tortue" snake watch in enamel, mother-of-pearl, diamonds - Mechanical movement - Numbered limited edition of 30 pieces

  • Hermès - "Faubourg Polka" watch in gold and diamonds

  • Patek Philippe - "Nautilus" watch (35.2 mm) in pink gold and snow-setting of 2553 diamonds

  • Bvlgari - "Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra" cuff watch in pink gold, citrines, tourmaline, amethyst, aquamarine,... -Quartz movement - Unique piece

  • Piaget - "Limelight Gala" watches

  • Cartier - The "Baignoire" watch inspired from a tortoise in diamonds, tsavorites and sapphires - Quartz movement - Numbered limited edition of 30 pieces

  • Baume & Mercier - "Classima" et "Hampton" watches

  • Chanel Horlogerie - "J12 X-Ray Electro" in gold and 46 rainbow sapphires with a in-house calibre 3.1

  • Louis Vuitton - "Dentelle de Monogram" (30mm) in gold and diamonds

  • Jaeger-LeCoultre - "Reverso One" in gemstones and enamel
