Richard Mille RM 07-01
Swiss watch manufacturer Richard Mille is enhancing its most emblematic ladies timepiece — the RM 07-01 Automatic — with a first-of-its-kind bracelet crafted from shockingly light Carbon TPT®. The timepiece combines the architectural complexity of a 200-part metal bracelet with the elegance of this technical material. The bracelet is formed of dozens of carbon plates placed on a grade 5 titanium skeleton by means of 44 of Richard Mille’s characteristic spline screws. This micromechanical gem combines suppleness and extreme rigidity, and weighs a mere 29 grams. The heart of this timepiece centers on the in-house designed CRMA2 calibre, a highly skeletonized automatic movement developed specifically for the RM 07-01.

Cat’s Eye Day & Night
The Cat’s Eye collection is one of the most loyal ambassadors of ladies’ watches. The Day & Night High Jewellery timepiece has been treated to several finishing operations, vividly reflecting the concern for details nurtured by Girard-Perregaux. Its figurative depiction of the day and night is imbued with a sense of refinement: a generous, shining sun on one side; and a dainty moon on the other, alternately appearing or hiding beneath a half-circle of diamonds as the hours go by. The white gold case is set with 52 diamonds, while the aventurine dial is set with 149 diamonds, and complete with a blue alligator strap.

Jazzmaster Open Heart
For those who enjoy the finer things in life, the Hamilton Jazzmaster Open Heart is fascinating whichever way you look at it. Powered by the H-10 movement, a three- hand movement with or without a date function, boasts a superior power reserve of 80 hours. The H-10 appears with intricate contrasting snail and pearled patterns. The Jazzmaster Open Heart delivers beauty through strength cased in stainless steel and is enhanced with a mother-of-pearl dial and four applied diamond indexes, adorned with a white calf leather strap.

Bell & Ross Green Camo
With its reputation built on the legibility, water-resistance, functionality and precision of its timepieces, Bell & Ross draws its inspiration from the history of aviation and the military specifications that accompany it, each time carrying out a technical or visual feat to produce an instrument of the highest quality. The Bell & Ross S Green Camo timepiece has a khaki camouflage dial, with 4N gold gilded applique numerals, indices and hands. Cased in a 39 mm satin-polished steel, the watch is adorned with a khaki calfskin leather strap with a satin-polished steel pin buckle. $2,100; www.bellross.com; www.hingwaleejewelers.com.
Breguet Reine de Naples Grande
Among the timepieces Breguet produces, those in the Reine de Naples collection have always been noted for lapsing into poetry. This impression is no doubt due to the unique shape of the case, which symbolizes the origin of life, but it could also be because it is a collection in which each highly complicated watch is made only for women. The Reine de Naples Grande Complication Day/Night wristwatch in 18-carat white gold features a bezel and dial flange set with 143 diamonds weighing approximately 1.45 cts. With self-winding movement, the balance depicting the sun integrated within the day/night indicator balances on a spring in silicon.
