PINK IS MY OYSTER

Rolex oyster perpetual datejust pearlmaster 34

Who had ever thought that yellow gold matches pink? for the gem-set Oyster collection this year, rolex confidently brings its a-game, as seen on this particular masterpiece. the 18k yellow gold casing and bracelet look absolutely gorgeous, and pink sapphires are simply icing on the cake. the dial is no less sublime, paved with bedazzling 456 diamonds. and a personal favorite is the ostentatious crown logo sitting on the place of 12 o’clock. it’s an unabashed statement of social pride that would taunt any envious eyes. to ease the date display reading, the crystal sapphire has a Cyclops lens that zooms the date number to two and a half-size bigger. this timepiece arrives in two versions, one with less diamonds than the other.

PINK PANTHER

Chanel j12 chromatic jewellery

Despite what the majority think, pink is not a shade identifiable with soft and fragile characters only. In the hands of Chanel, baguettecut pink sapphires in the embrace of luminous yet rugged titanium ceramic exude a rather tough feminine look. Set on a 29mm case, smaller than the predecessors, the new J12 Chromatic Jewellery has an understated allure that mostly suits the cultivated minds. The silver dial, for instance, keeps the 12 diamond indicators subtle and a tad reserved. However, the automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve speaks the language of well-acquainted watch buffs, that quality mechanism comes first, followed by aesthetics.

Case Size: 29mm
Case Material: White Gold And Titanium Ceramic
Dial: Silver
Strap: Titanium Ceramic
Movement: Automatic Or Quartz
Power Reserve: 42 Hours For Automatic

Dior

LUCKY NUMBER 8

Dior viii pink sapphire-set circle dial

Instead of pure white, a new model from the Dior VIII collection this year cuts a dash with a small circle of pink sapphire on the dial. The all-white, high-tech ceramic case and strap has a pyramid-shaped textural pattern, which adds a scintillating detail to the silhouette. The dial is kept rather simple in style, favoring only baton-styled hour markers, except for the Roman numeral VIII at 8 o’clock. This is intentional since eight is the late founder’s favorite number, occasionally appearing in the names of the collections, be it of fashion or watch designs, and as the date of the brand’s major events and exhibitions.

Case Size: 38mm
Case Material: Ceramic And Stainless Steel
Dial: Silver
Strap: Ceramic
Movement: Automatic
Power Reserve: 38 Hours
Water Resistance: 50m

Fendi

LA PETITE FOLIE

Fendi crazy carats

Fendi might not be a household name for fine watches, but the Crazy Carats collection with the patented rotatable gemstone set has its merit to be raved about. The 2014 piece, for instance, possesses a variety of gemstone set, and the most simple of which is in sparkling white radiance. That is until you rotate the crown at 3.30, which will surprisingly tilt the gemstones to showcase another color set, possibly pink! Do it again and you might end up with a blue sapphire set. Every model of the 2014 novelties has three gemstone sets, from white topaz to even rainbow colors. For the seasonal limited editions, fendi throws in additional frills, including two-toned mink bands or diamond studs adorning the dial center and bezel.

Case Size: 38mm
