6 Artful Timepieces to Covet This Spring
Each spring, leading luxury brands showcase their newest and most cutting-edge watch designs, and this year’s offerings are no exception. From Graff’s shimmering 18K-gold timepiece that’s dripping with yellow diamonds to Gucci’s automatic watch with a malachite dial, here are some of the season’s most artful accessories.
1. Graff Fancy Vivid Yellow Diamond Watch
This showstopping piece by London-based diamond house Graff features a staggering 211 rare fancy vivid yellow diamonds totaling 59.25 carats set in 18K-yellow gold. Surrounding a diminutive round case containing a Swiss quartz movement, the yellow diamonds—said to have been hand-selected by Mr. Graff himself—are set in a mosaic pattern for maximum color impact.
2. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31
With an olive-green face, 18K-yellow-gold hands, and sunray dial, this is the latest addition to the Rolex Datejust series. The VI numeral set with 11 diamonds is a particularly splendid detail.
3. Seduttori Bulgari
Bulgari’s seductive new Seduttori Serpenti draws on a long history of the brand’s famed Serpenti collection, but this time it’s been reinvented to be even thinner. In pink, yellow, and white gold, the watch comes with a new flexible bracelet and a case crowned with cabochon-cut gemstones.
4. Bulgari Octo Roma Tourbillon Sapphire
Blue watches are one of the standout trends this season, as evidenced by this elegant peacock-blue timepiece by Bulgari. The watch features a transparent face that reveals the watch’s movements while also showcasing a blue middle case beneath an 18K-rose-gold exterior.
5. Gucci G-Timeless Automatic
Gucci’s whimsical bee motif is sprinkled across this new G-Timeless automatic watch. Set in a 38mm case of 18K-yellow gold, the timepiece comes with stone dials in vibrant green malachite (pictured), black onyx, or brown tiger’s eye with handsome matching lizard straps.
6. Chanel Boyfriend Tweed Art
Chanel’s Boyfriend watches have been a hit since their launch in 2015. This new, 20-piece collection is a chic update and pays homage to Coco Chanel’s love of tweed with a high-fired enamel “tweed” dial. The accessory, set in an 18K-beige-gold case, is powered by a manually wound movement.
