HER­MÈS

Un­veiled ear­lier this year, the Slim d’her­mès Sa­vana Dance watch fea­tures a whim­si­cal scene of a leop­ard chas­ing a mon­key amid vi­brantly coloured plants painted on a white mother-of-pearl dial framed by a 39.5mm white gold case. Only 12 are avail­able.

PIAGET

Once more, Piaget proves ves to be the master of stone ne di­als with the Alti­plano High Jew­ellery lapis lazuli uli tour­bil­lon watch. To cre­ate the dial, a Piaget crafts­man cuts lapis lazuli into slices a mere 1mm thick, pol­ishes them and as­sem­bles the pieces into a stun­ning dial. The stone mar­quetry takes as long as three weeks to com­plete. A tour­bil­lon on the right of f the vivid blue dial is bal­anced ed by the time on the left, and the face is framed by baguette-cut di­a­monds s set on the white gold case.

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

The Lady Arpels Jour Féerique watch in white gold fea­tures a del­i­cate dial with a fairy bask­ing in the rays of the sun—an im­age re­alised in enamel and an assem­bly of round- and rose-cut di­a­monds, yel­low sap­phires, spes­sar­tite gar­nets, mother-of-pearl and turquoise. There is only one of this play­ful time­piece.
