Deck out in diamonds, aventurine and lapis lazuli as you celebrate the holidays
There are many ways to get in the mood for Christmas. Decorating your house in fresh pine wreaths, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, going festive shopping, playing Christmas tunes on loop… But our favourite has always been going postal with bling-worthy accessories. It’s the year-end after all, we definitely deserve a treat, and that’s especially true in 2020. Been thinking about a new timepiece all year? Go ahead and pull the trigger on these extra sparkly numbers which are not only the latest drops by the best watch brands but also forever pieces to treasure for life.
A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin
The German manufacture’s classic dress model gets a touch of bling thanks to a gently shimmering dial in solid silver, which is coated with black gold flux. The latter is a material that contains tiny copper-coloured particles scintillating against a deep black surface. A 50-watch limited edition, this white gold model takes after A. Lange & Sohne’s 2018 Saxonia with copper blue dial. Yours for S$37,000.
MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT Lapis Lazuli
After polished gold and engraved hand guilloché, this award-winning ladies watch by avant-garde watchmaking atelier MB&F re-emerges with a stunning lapis lazuli dial. The first of a series of gemstone editions, this exquisite number spotlights the stone’s deep blue hue enhanced by gold inclusions which are tiny flecks of pyrite. Yours for S$192,000.
Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon
Recalling the infinite beauty of a midnight starlit sky, this dazzling duo gets its shimmer from black and blue aventurine which is implemented with a unique approach. On its gold dial, crushed aventurine glass blended with grand feu enamel show off the manufacture’s incredible creativity and knack for handcraftsmanship. As expected of Audemars Piguet, tradition always comes with a twist. Yours for CHF133,000 (S$198,853).
Harry Winston Ocean Sparkling Biretrograde Automatic
On top of the baguette and brilliant cut diamonds set all over the bezel, lugs and dial, this sporty luxe model owes its megawatt fire to the scintillating dial made of ruthenium crystals. Providing a distinctively different kind of sparkle, it invites you to admire it up close in order to appreciate the unusual grained texture that sets this 18K rose gold watch apart from everything else.
