‘Tis the season to give beautiful gifts! And here at Gray & Sons, we have a wonderful collection of luxury watches and fine jewelry to choose from. For something really special, we’ve handpicked a selection of ladies jewelry watches to wrap up and put under the tree because sometimes, the best way to say I love you is with some serious sparkle.
Named after the French word for “coliseum,” the Colisee watch is a vintage beauty from Cartier’s archives featuring a curvy round case, ornate t-bar lugs, and a stunning bead bracelet.
This Cartier Colisee in 18k yellow gold from the 1980s is particularly striking thanks to the three rows of diamonds embellishing the bezel, along with additional diamond accents framing the bracelet ends and the solitaire diamond set into the crown.
The camelia was Coco Chanel’s favorite flower and it has remained a staple icon of the house of Chanel appearing on bags, shoes, jewelry, and of course, watches.
A beautiful interpretation of the magnificent bloom, this Chanel Camelia jewelry watch is crafted in 18k white gold with six gem-set petals framing the dial. The petals sparkle brightly with diamond and pink sapphire embellishments while the pink satin strap adds a delicate touch to this grown-up corsage.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce
Launched in 1997, the Aquanaut is Patek Philippe’s most youthful and sportiest watch collection, characterized by rounded octagon cases and water-resistant rubber straps.
Patek gave the ladies a dedicated collection in the form of the Aquanaut Luce (named after the Italian word for “light”) models furnished with diamond-set bezels. Living up to its name, this steel Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce lights up the wrist with 46 diamonds bordering the dial. The glistening precious gems are a striking contrast to the sporty black dial and rubber strap, which both feature the Aquanaut’s signature embossing detail.
LeCoultre Secret Jewelry Watch
Starting in the roaring twenties and continuing decades after, secret jewelry watches became all the rage among the fashion-set. As their name suggests, secret watches are pieces of jewelry with concealed dials to permit the wearer to know the time. Some theorize that the secret jewelry watch came about because it was considered impolite to check the time during social events while others maintain that it was simply the result of creative expression.
This vintage LeCoultre secret jewelry watch from the 1940s is a stunning example, designed to look like a chunky 18k rose gold and diamond bracelet but with a hidden dial that pops out when needed.
Rolex Cellini Cellissima
The Rolex Cellini line is home to some of the brand’s most creative and ornate timepieces, free from the strict Oyster Perpetual design codes.
This glamourous Rolex Cellini Cellissima ladies jewelry watch in 18k white gold shines bright with diamond-set hooded lugs and two rows of diamonds on the bezel surrounding the dial. Furthermore, the Jubilee-style dial stamped with the repetitive “Rolex” motif is further adorned with 12 diamond hour markers and the supple bead link white gold bracelet is a joy to wear.
With only a couple of weeks left until the end of the year, it’s time to get your shopping done if you haven’t already! This holiday season, celebrate her with a ladies’ jewelry watch that sparkles almost as much as she does.
