BIRDS OF PARADISE
Chanel unveiled several new, noteworthy creations at Baselworld 2016, but it was its Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel Flying Birds collection that stole the show. With fluttering birds carved out of 18-karat beige gold delicately hovering over an onyx dial, each of the five Mademoiselle Privé Coromandel Flying Birds timepieces boasts an impressive high-precision quartz movement to keep you going on any future flights of fantasy.
It’s not the first time Bulgari has reinterpreted its signature snake, but this iconic symbol made a larger-than-life impression during Baselworld 2016. With its two new collections—Serpenti Incantati and Serpenti Tubogas—Bulgari balances exquisite craftsmanship with precise quartz movements for sophisticated timepieces, inlaid with a stunning range of brilliant-cut pavé diamonds. Fans of high watchmaking will surely remember these in years to come.
