From Sleek To Sporty, These Are The Best New Watches For Women In 2019
1/5 Legacy Machine FlyingT by MB&F
Another three-dimensional creation, but this time designed strictly for women, this timepiece boasts beautiful mechanics as well as stunning design.
Inescapable femininity radiates from the watch, thanks to its round white-gold case, domed sapphire crystal and dial in black lacquer—with or without diamonds. A central flying 60-second tourbillon movement is made from 280 components and 30 jewels.
Equipped with 100 hours of power reserve, one of the highest ever offered by the brand, this watch puts women at the forefront, and we’re loving it.
2/5 Cintrée Curvex Remember by Franck Muller
First made famous by his “watch without rules,” in which the hour numerals are placed in seemingly random positions, Franck Muller is wowing horology aficionados with yet another imaginative creation.
For 2019, Franck Muller has pushed the envelope even further, adding another atypical timekeeping concept to a brand-new line, named simply Remember. On these timepieces, available in rose gold, white gold or stainless steel, the numerals are displayed in descending order—the opposite direction to a traditional watch.

3/5 2019 RM07-02 Pink Lady Sapphire by Richard Mille
Richard Mille has never been a company to rest on its laurels, and now, in a first time for the Swiss-based brand, the 2016 RM 07-02 Pink Lady Sapphire has a sparkling new upgrade.
As if the original sapphire case wasn’t challenging enough, the 2019 version comes with 12 alcoves carved into it enabling space for gold prongs to hold a series of rows of diamonds around the case’s perimeter.
The new model comes in a choice of colours, with each featuring a different beautiful stone on its dial. Mother-of-pearl is used for the blue sapphire case, nephritis for the green sapphire and jasper for the pink sapphire.

4/5 Grand Bal Opera No. 4 by Dior
With their sumptuous dials of gold and diamonds, Dior’s new Grand Bal Opera watches show once again that in the right creative hands a single idea can be an endless source of inspiration.
Since Dior introduced its Calibre Inversé in 2011, it has been constantly reinterpreted using precious metal, slivers of mother-of-pearl, gold thread, gemstones and even feathers to evoke the precious of pleats, the froth of lace, the swishing of taffeta or the gossamer lightness of chiffon.
For this year’s opera-inspired collection of 10 unique pieces, Dior has mixed pink, white and gold in varying combinations, with accents of lacquer, mother-of-pearl and diamonds.
5/5 Peacock by Bulgari
First and foremost a jeweller, Bulgari is known for the bold, singular style of its very Italian accessories, an aesthetic it has successfully translated into watchmaking.
One of the most dazzling new additions to Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream collection is the Peacock watch, with each element more striking than the last. A vibrant peacock’s feather adorns the dial, and the simple elegance of the smooth case in rose gold lets the natural drama of the iridescent feather shine.
The 37mm case is set with brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel, while the crown, also rose gold, is set with a cabochon-cut rubellite.
