Often regarded as a man’s only jewellery, a watch – when manufactured by a renowned company – encompasses more than the mere telling of time. A source of delight, it also a definite expression of its wearer’s personality. Whether abounding with complications, classical, ultra-thin, sporty or one of a kind, a watch always sparks wonder and steals the heart of the inner children in the collectors and enthusiasts that love such fine mechanics. Far from paying no heed to women, watchmaking houses, some of which have histories spanning several centuries, have imagined for them timepieces that are the perfect marriage between fine craft skills and watchmaking know-how, sparking emotions with the shimmer of their precious stones.
