THE DAZ­ZLING DE­BUT AN TE Re­call­ing Mon­sieur Dior’s leg­endary love for flow­ers, the stun­ning Dior Grand Sol Botanic col­lec­tion of­fers eight one-of-a-kind de­signs that you’ll fall in love with at first sight. A trove of pre­cious stones (in a myr­iad of cuts) and ma­te­ri­als are ex­pertly used to cre­ate a fan­tas­ti­cal multi-lay­ered, three-di­men­sional flo­ral dial—just so you can carry a stun­ning gar­den around with you wher­ever you go. Dior Grand Sol Botanic No. 5, Dior 3. THE EX­U­BER­ANT SHOWMAN It’s been 25 years since Rolex re­leased its first Yacht-Mas­ter. And there have been reg­u­lar up­dates of the time­piece since then, but none as jaw-drop­ping as this one here. This is the first time ever that the nau­ti­cal num­ber is pre­sented with gem­stones—in the colours of the rain­bow, no less. Fin­ished with Rolex’s fa­mous Oys­ter­flex strap, this vi­va­cious num­ber is set to make any­one who sees it do a dou­ble-take. Everose gold, sap­phire, tsa­vorite and di­a­mond Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Yacht-Mas­ter 40, Rolex 4. THE TIME­LESS ARIS­TO­CRAT Trust Patek Philippe to de­liver a di­a­mond-cloaked num­ber with all the dis­cern­ment of a true pa­tri­cian. Bear­ing 25 dif­fer­ent sized and cut di­a­monds (in­clud­ing bril­liant, baguette and trapeze), this haute joail­lerie ver­sion of its lat­est Aqua­naut Luce is a gem-set­ting feat that sees both in­vis­i­ble and snow-set­ting tech­niques be­ing used to se­cure its eight-carats worth of di­a­monds. The re­sults are as pleas­ing to the eye as they are to the heart. Rose gold and di­a­mond Aqua­naut Luce, Patek Philippe 5. THE CLAS­SIC SOPHISTICATE For 2017, Bul­gari has in­tro­duced the fem­i­nine moon phase com­pli­ca­tion into its Lu­cia col­lec­tion, en­sur­ing the range of time­pieces a place in women’s hearts. Avail­able in three ex­e­cu­tions—a steel and pink gold ver­sion with di­a­mond hour-mark­ers; a pink gold with di­a­mond-stud­ded strap lugs and bezel; and the white gold di­a­mond bezel edi­tion shown here—our favourite fea­ture of the watch is the three-di­men­sional moon that has been set against a rich hearth of ruby or sparkling aven­turine glass. White gold and di­a­mond Lu­cia Moon Phase, $42,300, Bul­gari
