“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” There must be a lot of truth in these words which were made immortal when sang by Marilyn Monroe. Nearly all ladies watches are either fitted with diamonds or at least available with a diamond setting. A few well-placed diamonds can elevate even a simple watch into a true glamour piece. These are some of Haute Time’s favorite diamond set ladies watches!
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Medium Duetto
One of the reasons why we love the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Medium Duetto is its versatility! One side is a classic gold dress watch, yet flip the case around two elegant rows of brilliant cut diamonds turns this watch into a true Cinderella piece! Fitted with Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 968A, the watch is also a mechanical marvel.
Breguet Be Crazy
With the Be Crazy Breguet is showing a completely different side of itself, that as the creator of exquisite Haute Joaillerie watches. More than 70 cts of baguette cut diamonds are set in this watches, making it as precious as it is breathtaking. It makes you long for the time of Louis X IV and a great ball at Versailles. It has more to show off than just the diamonds by the way: inside ticks, Breguet caliber 586 with a rotor in engine turned platinum and a Breguet balance on a silicon spring.
Van Cleef & Arpels Cadenas
Beautiful bracelet or stunning watch? The Cadenas by Van Cleef & Arpels is both. With a stunning snow setting on top of the watch case, the line between piece of jewelry and wrist watch becomes even more unclear, and this is also the true power of this timeless design. It is one of those diamond set watches that is a perfect daily companion, which will (sometimes literally) brighten up your day!
Cartier knows what to do with diamonds and watches, as they have been doing it for so long! The original Baignoire, for example, was designed in 1906. Its guilloche dial with Roman numerals gives this watch its classic look, but we are still mesmerized by the diamond set 18K Pink gold case. The diamonds follow the shape of the case perfectly, and it is amazing to see how they go from larger to smaller in size. Diamond-set ladies watches at their best!
