For a long period of time, the concept of female watches stayed with the single impression of “beauty.” The truth is, many female consumers also want to enter the realm of mechanics and feel its charm. In these recent years, the game has changed and assumptions are broken. The choice of each female watch is a manifesto of how women live their lives in a way that cannot be limited by the materialistic romance and focuses more on embellishing the nobility of the feminine soul.

A Storming Tenderness
2021 will mark the 220th anniversary of the advent of the tourbillon, a masterpiece of advanced watchmaking technology. Not only is tourbillon an unparalleled mechanical device, it is also a witness of the legendary journey of mankind. Hence, the inventor of the tourbillon, Abraham-Louis Breguet, along with the brand he founded were both crowned with a reputation of prominence and fame.
When tourbillon meets the gorgeous feminine watches, even the fast-oscillating “storm” seems to soften on the slender wrists with fair skin. Breguet’s Classique Grandes Complications series presents its 3358 feminine tourbillon wristwatch that uses finely carved, transparent enamel design. The water-like dial is covered in hand- engraved carvings, and lined with velvet colors to add a touch of elegance. The six o’clock time mark is symmetric to the 12 o’clock indicator, while the translucent dial completely exposes the handcrafted calibre’s breathtaking features. When the visual echoes perfectly with the functional, an elegant recording of time is then created.

Goddess of Movement
To PATEK PHILLIPPE, the most beautiful brand ambassador is the wristwatch itself. This year, the label launches the brand new Twenty~4 Automatic with handcrafted self-winding calibre. By combining minimalist design and the artisan’s impeccable craftsmanship, the charm of feminine grace is highlighted in a unique manner. The way a modern woman is armored with her confidence, tenacity, and exquisiteness is just like how the brand new Twenty~4 Automatic and the intricately complex round case with a diameter of 36mm embody a clear out line. The slightly protruding bracelet links are perfectly blended with the delicate double links, together creating a gentle coating for the wrist.
Throughout the years, the Swiss luxury watch brand continues to introduce new features to the iconic collection. Reimagining its art-deco-inspired cuff design or “manchette,” as known in French, the quartz watch now comes in a new rose-gold version with a brown sunburst dial. Using a round case for the Twenty~4 Automatic, the two new timepieces come in either a stainless steel case with an olive green sunburst dial or a rose-gold case with rose-gold sunburst gilding dial. From a brand new perspective, all three types of wristwatch exemplify the brand of PATEK PHILLIPPE and infuse every second of life with beauty and aesthetics.
Going back to1999, when PATEK PHILIPPE launched its first exclusive women’s collection, the brand concept was based on the busy and active lifestyle of modern women, while the collection’s image was inspired by the elegance and sophistication of an independent woman. Meaning the twenty four hours we get in a day, now, the Twenty~4 symbolizes the versatile and ever-changing ways of life. With everything culminated into one brand new wristwatch, the distinctive features are appropriate for not just the quotidian, but also for work and outings. Adding something special to the work attire or the remarkable gown worn at a celebratory banquet, the timepiece becomes a timeless elegance that is suitable for any occasion.
