Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori

Chanel Premiere.Boy Tweed Art

So, it looks like Chanel's tweed trademark has also reached watches. *Yay*. Premiere.Boy is a watch that defies the lines between masculine and feminine styles. This year, Premiere.Boy is developed in distinctive black and white versions with a Grand Feu Tweed effect. The 20-piece limited edition collection is complete with an 18k beige gold case and frame, enamel effect with tweed plated Grand Feu, an 18k gold beige crown with unglazed onyxstone, and a mechanical movement with manual filling – all with a very refined satin buckle.

Chopard Imperiale Joaillerie Rainbow

"We have introduced more pieces with textured mother of pearl dials, a material placed at the heart of our creations with two models of Imperiale Joaillerie adorned with the colours of the rainbow with white and Tahitian mother of pearl," said Chopard's co-president Caroline Scheufele. Introduced in 18k rose gold with a white or grey dial and a white or grey alligator leather strap, the 36mm Imperiale Joiallerie Rainbow watches come with an 18k rose gold bezel set with baguette cut sapphires in ranging shades with arabesque motifs drawn from the embroidery of draperies.
