Fluffly & Flying Watches

5th February 2019

Diamonds Révélation d'une Panthère, Cartier, 2019.

Animals are a recurrent theme for jewellery and watches, they symbolize different values and express personalities. Felines tend to be audacious, sensual and powerful; butterflies and birds are more delicate, dreamy and emotional; fishes and sea creatures are rather mysterious, free and caring.

This beginning of year showcases both daring and gracious figurative watches that will enhance your exotic spirit.

Magnolia Pig Watch by Harry Winston 

Symbolizing luck and honesty, the Pig is the Chinese zodiac sign for 2019. In order to seduce this valuable Asian clientele, many watchmakers and jewelers unveiled a special creation representing the new sign. Chopard, Jaquet Droz, Vacheron Constantin, Fabergé and Harry Winston exploited the theme in various and distinctive ways.  


To me, Harry Winston presented the most feminine and elegant watch for this occasion: a sparkling timepiece that reveals daring warm colors. The cloudy bloody mother-of-pearl dial, and the deep red leather bracelet are most probably related to the Chinese national flag and to its color’ s symbols of grace and happiness. The pig’s representation is very refined with its red magnolias and graphic pearl marquetry composition. Its soft colors balance with the overall flamboyant design.  The diamonds on the dial and the pave bezel create additional sparkles and enhance femininity.
For this special edition with mechanical automatic movement watch, only 7 pieces are produced.

Peacock Diva's Dream Watch by Bulgari

Bulgari stays loyal to its colorful and exotic codes with the following Peacock Diva’s Dream watch.

This elegant watch collection already caught my attention with the Roman Night Watchand its constellation theme (see article here)

This time, the delicate feather dial is crowning elegance and refinement. The gold, deep blue and bright green feather recalls of warm Mediterranean promenades under the sun.

The automatic winding movement watch presents a beige alligator strap and 3 diamonds lines on the pink gold bezel and lug.

Mosaics Tiger Watch by Cartier 

Renowned for its gracious Panthère, Cartier is also giving some light to the gold fauna: tigers.

This figurative timepiece presents a complex and creative dial composed of various elements. The base of the dial is a mosaic scale of orange, brown and beige hues. On top of this, black lacquer spots are irregularly shaped and spread, making a tiger head appearing. In addition, some brilliant-cut diamonds are immersed in the colorful dial, giving a more feminine image to the affronting tiger.
The yellow gold case and pave bezel accentuate the feline’s glory and add a shiny luster to the watch, while the black leather bracelet creates a deep contrast.
All the elements create perspective and texture, and reveal true precision and expert craftsmanship to bring to life this masterpiece.

As a continuity of the Révélation d’une Panthère Watch Collection, this astonishing piece creates even more sparkles than its sisters. Once again, the trick is genius and the effect is fascinating: 650 free diamonds particles are slowly falling down in the black dial, revealing a daring and mysterious panther head. The white gold bracelet is full pavé, in addition to the bezel. This bright, yet sophisticated and elegant watch will shine bright at any occasion and will definitely distinguish its lucky owner.
