The days when ladies’ watches were but pale imitations of their masculine counterparts are gone. The idea that trimming millimetres from a diameter, refining contours, adding a sprinkling of diamonds here, a moon phase or a smattering of mother-of-pearl there is enough to render a timepiece irresistible in a woman’s eyes is dépassé. A lady’s watch now has an identity of its own that can explore every facet of femininity. Diamonds are still in evidence. Poetry and magic too. Yet however sumptuous, it is no longer a rarity to see a specially developed movement beating beneath these precious exteriors. Horology has shattered the glass ceiling. The proof with a selection of ten ladies’ watches unveiled at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie.
