A woman leads a thousand lives in one. Each hour of her day is filled with a multitude of activities that reflect the myriad aspects of her personality. Poetic, glamorous, bold, sporty, discreet, extravert, elegant, modern, complicated or refined… it takes a multitude of adjectives to describe the many different faces of womankind, and just as many to do justice to her horological counterparts; something the women’s watches unveiled at the 2016 SIHH confirm. They reveal a hint of poetry and a softer side, diamonds, of course, and coloured stones, naturally, complications, artistic crafts and endless originality. Most of all, whether it comes in its most precious guise, in festive mode or draped in simplicity, watchmaking pays homage to women by interpreting the one unique quality they all share: femininity. The proof in images with Piaget, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Richard Mille, IWC, Roger Dubuis, Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Vacheron Constantin, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels.
