Sun, water, shooting stars: watches decorated with cheerful motifs are very popular in the summertime. Here’s our round-up of summer must-haves with exclusive wristwatches that are waiting to wrap themselves around their wearer’s wrist like a warm summer breeze.
Bulgari (top): The word “Seduttori” (“Seduction”) could not be more aptly chosen because this reinterpretation of the legendary Serpenti ladies’ watch seduces everyone with its subtly reworked design. The watch has Bulgari’s legendary droplet-shaped case, but with slimmer lines than its predecessors. Sparkling diamonds embellish the side of the bezel. The flexible and supple bracelet, which recalls the original wristband, is likewise new. Its links also recall the shape of a snake’s head. A highly precise quartz movement keeps time inside the 33 mm pink, yellow or white gold case.
Chopard Happy Sport Oval: They dance and dance and dance! The Happy Diamonds from Chopard have been gliding and pirouetting across the dial of the Happy Sport Oval for more than twenty-five years. This pretty model is now part of the company’s collection in a modernized contemporary form. The feminine ladies’ watch has also received a new bracelet, which is based on the design from the 1990s.
The bracelet’s eye-catchers are its oval, gently rounded and polished links, which nestle closely together. The links are so closely interconnected that a supple band is created. The bracelet calls to mind a braid and fits most comfortably around its wearer’s wrist. This wearing comfort applies to both the stainless steel and pink gold versions. If desired, this watch’s feminine glamour can be further accentuated with diamonds: all versions of the Happy Sport Oval are available with precious stones on their bezels.
Frederique Constant: Five new models join Frederique Constant’s successful Ladies Automatic collection, whose special feature is a double heart-shaped motif at the “12”. Aficionadas can admire the balance, the ticking heart of the automatic movement, through an aperture in the dial. The 36 mm models also feature diamonds and new metal bracelets. The alligator leather straps are colored to match the hues of the dial. Part of the proceeds will be donated to DonorsChoose.org, a charitable organization in the United States that has chosen brand ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow. The charity assists underprivileged children.
