For years, Eve’s Watch Awards have been rewarding the passion, investment and commitment that goes into producing extraordinary timepieces and the achievements of talented women that makes a difference in the world of horology.
Undoubtedly, being shortlisted for this prestigious award is in itself an accomplishment. Those on the list have surely excelled in their class and here, we’d like to mention some of the exquisite timepieces that have been shortlisted under the Best High Jewellery Watch category.
Diamond Outrage (Haute Joaillerie)
Being the final piece in an ultra-contemporary high jewellery trilogy, the Diamond Outrage from Haute Joaillerie has a stunning snow setting from the complex spikes of brilliant cut and baguette cut diamonds . The case is made from 18-carat white gold case that is entirely set with diamonds, glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
Dior Grand Soir (Dior)
Dior is back with a new addition to the family, the Dior Grand Soir collection, composed of eight unique flower-inspired pieces. These watch creations turn the spotlight on flowers, with their dials adorned with precious stones of various shapes and sizes, mother-of-pearl, opals and polished gold elements.
The white gold cases covered in a pavé of snow-set round diamonds, provide a precious frame for these unique flowers that attach to the wrist, with a bracelet of midnight blue fabric.
Chopard Green Carpet Collection (Chopard)
For the first time in the industry, Chopard features Responsibly Mined emeralds for its Chopard Green Carpet Collection, as demonstrated on its watch to match with a pair of earrings and a ring in ethical 18-carat Fairmined white gold.
Panthére de Cartier (Cartier)
Cartier’s Panthére de Cartier (medium model) has a rhodium-finish 18k white gold case that is set with approximately 168 brilliant cut diamonds (totals up to 0.78-carats) and decorated with panther-themed spots.
Venturer Smoky Sapphire (H. Moser & Cie)
Alternating between diamonds and sapphires to form a sparkling circle, the Venturer Smoky Sapphire by H. Moser & Cie is an exquisite reinterpretation of the nuances of its famed fumé dials, which is an integral part of the company’s design codes. Its carefully chosen sapphires are in gradually deepening shades of blue to form a stunning colour gradation effect.
On the bezel, lugs and side of the case, diamonds soften the clean, minimalist lines of the Venturer collection. Beneath the curved sapphire crystal, the dial sparkles and accentuates the extremely refined lines of the bezel.
Mademoiselle Privé Décor Aubazine (Chanel)
Limited to only 5 pieces made, Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé Décor Aubazine has a 37.50mm white gold case, decorated with diamonds worth up to 6-carats. It has a satin strap with a folding buckle to offer smooth comfort to the wearer.
