Maurice Lacroix AIKON LADIES - AI1006-SD502-170-1

For a simple, everyday piece that also adds a dash of elegance to the wardrobe, this 35mm stainless steel Manuel Lacroix’s watch is ideal. The mother-of-pearl dial is decked with 8 diamonds, while the prominent bezel features six “arms” that seem to embrace its form and is studded with 36 diamonds.

Sporty

Tag Heuer Aquaracer WAY1395.BH0716

Sports watches don’t have to be über-clunky and masculine. Sporty yet stylish, this Tag Heuer Aquaracer 35mm model is encased in polished ceramic and decked in 60 diamonds. The piece is water resistant up to 300 metres.

Business

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold

Co-created with Florentine jewellery designer Carolina Bucci, the new 33mm Royal Oak Frosted Gold features shimmering hammered 18-karat pink gold on its case, bezel, and bracelet, and a silvered “Grade Tapisserie” dial. The structural design and the fact that it stands out without the help of precious gems make this watch the perfect business companion.

Dinner

A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 Moon Phase

This gorgeous watch racks up the style and sophistication to an intimate dinner setting. Two complications are integrated in the piece: a precisely jumping outsize date and a moon-phase display colour-coordinated to match the elegant face. The argenté-coloured dial is encased in a 36.8m pink gold case, making for a delicate but beautifully complex look.
