Breguet’s Reine de Naples collection has a historic relevance as its oval shape is inspired by a watch commissioned by Napolean’s sister, Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples to the founder of the brand, Abraham-Louis Breguet. The new 32.7mm white gold Princess Mini 9818 model has a fluted caseband, a lavender mother-of-pearl dial with a large Roman numeral XII, a briolette-cut diamond on the crown and 64 brilliant diamonds on the bezel and lugs. It is equipped with a mechanical automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.

German watchmaker Glashutte Original launched a new in-house automatic movement Calibre 36 in the new 40mm round stainless steel or 18k rose gold Glashutte Original Senator Excellence model. It is the first movement outfitted with a silicon balance spring which renders it immune to changes in temperature and magnetic fields. It also boasts another first for the brand: a power reserve of up to 100 hours. Its black dial has finely curved Arabic numerals coated with Super-LumiNova for legibility in low light.

TAG Heuer’s Aquaracer Lady 300m Ceramic Black & Diamonds - Reference WAY1395 is a stunner. It features 60 diamonds around the bezel and has the same caseback design as the men’s Aquaracer series with a solid steel caseback boasting an engraved diver’s helmet. The 35mm all-ceramic model also comes in an all-white version and a black version with rose gold accents. It is powered by a Swiss quartz movement and has a sapphire crystal caseback.

Created by Rolex in 1963, the 40mm, 914L stainless steel Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona has set a track record in motor sports due to its reliability and performance. Its monobloc Cerachrom bezel in high-tech ceramic is engraved with a tachymetric scale for measuring average speeds of up to 400 miles per hour. Its case is waterproof to a depth of 100 metres and is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
