Not surprisingly green – the colour of hope – was in abundance. Bulgari’s Diva’s Dream Divissima is a newly reworked version of its more elaborate high jewellery sister and features eight brilliantly bright emeralds set amongst diamonds in a white gold case.
Piaget, which has been known for its Exquisite Replica Watches since the dawn of the jet set, does not disappoint and also looks to emeralds to make a splash. The Limelight Gala high jewellery watch matches a striking Australian black opal dial with 83 emeralds and 92 diamonds that spray out like water drops from the sides of the case and bracelet.
Floral motifs are a stalwart of jewellery design and a safe bet in times of doubt. Louis Vuitton takes the well-known Monogram flower and start motifs first seen on its steamer trunks in 1896 and makes it the central feature of the Famous Replica Watches. The gold button at the centre of the flower-shaped case opens to reveal a miniature mother-of-pearl dial.
The bracelet has a distinctive geometric pattern of slanted white gold links that contrast with the circular shape of the case for a quirky Hermès take on the cocktail watch. Chopard on the other hand, has never been shy of diamonds and the Imperial watch is treated to a generous sprinkling of diamonds paired with a creamy engraved mother of pearl dial.
The house’s famous Happy Diamonds watch gets an elegant re-design with a grey mother of pearl dial around which 15 diamonds spin like skaters on an ice rink. Another diamond surprise came from High Quality Replica Patek Philippe where the normally sporty Nautilus is now bedecked in 2,553 brilliant-cut diamonds set so close together that the watch appears to be coated in gemstones.
This is possible to the snow-setting – mentioned above – that uses different size diamonds to pack them as tightly as possible, with virtually no gold visible through the dense wall to wall diamond carpeting.
Animals and in particular the panther are the domain of Cartier. The house has been making AAA Replica Watches featuring this sinuous feline since 1914 yet the designers still manage to find new ways to incorporate the animal into watches. One of the defining characteristics of the panther chez Cartier is the creature’s expressiveness and ever-changing attitude.
From snarling to languid to defiant, the panther has been put through a wide range of emotions and this year sees a pensive big cat in the form of the Panthère Songeuse. Relaxed and lost in thought with his eyes half closed, this philosophical panther is draped over the side of the case decorated with stripes of blue enamel and diamonds.
Another gold panther adopts a very different pose in the service of horology. This gold panther obediently wraps its jaws around the gold loop at the top of a watch dial to hold together the La Panthère replica watch. Two emeralds are his eyes in this stylish all-gold watch that wraps twice around the wrist.
Cartier has never been one for cuddly or cute animals and along with the panther, its beasts of choice include the snake, crocodile and turtle. In Cartier’s hands these rare beasts become objects of great beauty as seen in the Cartier Libre Baignoire Stylish Replica Watches that has been dressed up as a turtle. The Baignoire watch was created by Louis Cartier in 1912. Its shape reminded the design team of a turtle who recreated a tortoise shell carapace using gemstones and enamel patterns to delightful effect.
