Jew­els of Time: The World of Wom en’s Watches

By Roberta Naas (The Cu­rated Col­lec­tion)

Plaza Watch International - - Books -

When one con­sid­ers that watches ap­pear to be a fas­ci­na­tion more dis­tinctly for many men – they’re ‘male jew­ellery’ and so on – be­lieve it or not, women like watches too. In­deed, many of the big guns are gear­ing up to cater to a fe­male cus­tomer in­creas­ingly as in­trigued by the move­ment as the style of their time­pieces. ‘Jew­els of Time’, ad­mit­tedly, fo­cuses more on beauty over any beast of a mech­a­nism, no­tably those pieces that have been in­spired by art, ar­chi­tec­ture and, of course, fash­ion. In­evitably there is a lean­ing to­wards those one-of-a-kind pieces that come heavy with the jew­els too, among them Chopard’s Happy Di­a­monds – the for­mer is the ef­fect on a woman upon re­ceiv­ing the lat­ter, leg­end has it. £45
