There could also be no trophy or awards ceremony, however these are the three bejewelled timepieces that we imagine deserve recognition for his or her excellent efficiency.
The Jewelry Editor Award for Greatest Jewelry Watch goes to Bulgari’s sensational Serpenti Incantati. A brand new tackle the traditional Serpenti, on this model the diamond and rubelite serpent coils not solely across the wrist, however seductively across the dial. The bracelet on these Bulgari watches is made up of the articulated physique of a snake and was impressed by a classic Bulgari Artwork Deco brooch from the 1930s.
Subsequent is The Jewelry Editor Award for Greatest Use of Color in a Jewelry Watch and this accolade goes to Dior’s Grand Soir Kaleidiorscope. For this timepiece, the designers imagined Christian Dior’s high fashion embroideries by a kaleidoscope and reworked them into these dazzling and mesmerising mosaic dials of mother-of-pearl, opal, lapis lazuli, turquoise, malachite, onyx, sugilite, and nearly each colored gemstone below the solar, all framed by a bezel set with geometrically-cut stones. The denim straps add a touch of lightness and informality to those dazzling Dior watches.
Our last Jewelry Editor Award for Greatest Secret Watch goes to Chanel’s Les Eternelles Morganite timepiece. The enduring matelassé – or quilted motif – which Gabrielle Chanel took from the world of horseracing for her legendary 2.55 purse, emigrates to excessive jewelry, and this supple white gold cuff sits like material on the wrist. Hiding behind the blushing pink 43.66ct morganite is the dial of the key watch.
