Dials go discreet

 trendy horlogerie decembre

After pinching guys’ watches, elegant women are now favouring small timepieces again, so icons are being reimagined in proportions suited to the slimmest wrists.


Sports chic.
Famed for its forceful masculine models, Breitling now tempts women too with the 29mm Galactic.
Its sporty case is water-resistant to 100m but delivers unarguable sophistication through
a mother-of-pearl dial, gem-set bezel and diamond hour circle. There are pink-gold versions as well.


Yes, the new generation of Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust watches has grown up, but the case nonetheless comes in a delicate 28mm size. This little marvel in yellow Rolesor or Everose is mechanically impressive too thanks to the 2236 calibre with Superlative Chronometer certification.


Must have
Sheer style in 19mm. The fashion house has had fun revamping its bestseller. The ceramic-cased J12 XS is a pure gem of femininity and modernity, guaranteed to incite envy worn on a rock-chick cuff, with gloves or as a ring. A special mention for the unique versions sporting Lesage embroidery.
