Blancpain has consistently introduced mechanical ladies’ watches, including several complications, with particular attention to metiers dial finishes. Among the watches in the brand’s Women’s collection are a Flyback Chronograph, a Complete Calendar with Moonphase and a Dual Time Zone, all beautiful watches, set with diamonds and with functions equal to the technology in the men’s pieces.The spectacular Chronograph Large Date, set to be introduced at Baselworld this coming April, is a spectacular example of Blancpain’s talent for combining the decorative, artisanal side of watchmaking with innovative complications.The two-tiered mother-of-pearl dial is inset with two lines of diamonds that separate the time display – in Roman numerals – from the chronograph totalizers that use random-sized Arabic numerals. The addition of a large, double-digit date display balances the dial composition. The bezel is also set with diamonds, for a total of 40, or 2.24 carats. It contains the Blancpain automtic caliber 26F8G, with a spectacular, petal-shaped, gold oscillating weight.
The Cartier Panthère Divine Watch has been selected by Carmelo Anthony as The Haute Time Watch of the Day.This stunning debut from SIHH 2013 is part of the Les Heures Fabuleuses de Cartier Collection and certainly makes a statement. The watch case is 18k white gold plated with rhodium and set with brilliant-cut diamonds. The black brass dial features a guilloche design, and is the perfect back drop for the panther which is also set with brilliant-cut diamonds and features black enamel spots. The hands on this timepiece are offset on the dial and mark the hours and minutes with rhodium plated steel hands. The Cartier Panthère Divine watch is shown on a black brushed calfskin strap with a matching 18k white gold buckle.
