Hermès Arceau Le Temps Suspendu
If the lady wearing this watch wants to feel “off the clock” for a while, she only needs to push the button at 2 o’clock. The clever, proprietary mechanism will then move the two hands to a neutral, timeless position at 12 o’clock, while the movement continues to function normally. When she needs to check the time, she simply pushes the button again and, as if by magic, the two hands return to their correct position to show the actual time.
Hublot Big Bang Carbon Bezel Baguette Blue Sapphires
A very sporty watch in a carbon case decorated with blue sapphires, this one is the antidote to a classical and old-fashioned dress watch. This Hublot makes a powerful statement on the wrist, underlining the distinguished taste of the woman showcasing it. The watch is powered by an automatic chronograph caliber from ETA.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface
Another timepiece that also could be a men’s watch, but here again, I believe it looks better on a women’s wrist. With its two dials the Reverso not only changes its look, but also offers a second zone-time indication for a globetrotter. The watch contains an in-house hand wound caliber.
This is Omega‘s real first ladies’ watch; previously, the brand just reconfigured its existing men’s watches into women’s versions. In my eyes a very good-looking and reliable timepiece equipped with an in-house automatic caliber.
Panerai Radiomir 1940 Oro Rosso 42 mm
This is another very powerful “statement” watch for a woman. Panerai reduced the case size of the existing men’s model to 42 mm and outfitted it with its hand-wound caliber P.999. And the red gold Radiomir case looks just gorgeous.
