Instead of the typical gifts this Mother’s Day, why don’t you think of purchasing something a bit more thoughtful for that special mother in your life? Whether it is your very own mom, wife, daughter or sister, an elegant Swiss watch that matches her personality is truly a gift to be treasured. There are many Swiss timepieces for women to choose from and just as many styles. Below we go over some of our picks for this Mother’s Day.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds
There is no need to have to know the origin story behind the Jaegar-LECoultre’s legendary Reverso in order to appreciate its classical proportions. First fashioned on the polo fields of India back in 1931, when an officer of the British Raj is said to have challenged the Swiss businessman Cesar de Trey to device a timepiece that could withstand the game, the model belongs in the watchmaking hall of fame not only for its unique swiveling mechanism but also for its rich, nearly nine-decade-long history. The Tribute Small Seconds version comes on a strap by Casa Fagliano, the celebrated Argentinian boot maker and it features a magnificent blue dial that is inspired by the original.
Audemars Piguet Millenary Frosted Gold Opal Dial
Originally debuted back in 1995, the egg-shaped Millenary from the prestigious watch maker Audemars Piguet has been known for it’s eye-catching silhouette. This 1970s-eque opal dial and frosted gold case was made in collaboration with Florentine jeweler Carolina Bucci, whose technique involves using a diamond-tipped instrument in order to create the tiny indentations on the gold that masterfully catches light. Available in an 18-karat pink gold mesh bracelet, the wristwatches focus is the open-worked dial, which offers a glimpse into its hand-wound movement which is perfect for fans of horology.
Amidst all the media and hype around its chronographs and dive watches favored by the likes of James Bond, it’s easy to forget that Omega has a long history of making timepieces for women also. The brand has vowed not to let anyone forget this when it debuted the Trésor collection, whose nine distinct models are available in stainless steel or in the brand’s proprietary 18-karat Sedna gold on either fabric or leather straps.
Piaget’s signature Possession collection was debuted in a campaign that featured the model / entrepreneur Olivia Palermo, whom was photographed in Dubai wearing the new Possession timepiece, a sassy red cocktail timepiece that is perfect for women who prize their evenings out in town. This 29mm, 18-karat rose gold timepiece is set with approximately 1.04 karats of diamonds and a natural carnelian dial on an interchangeable red alligator leather strap.
Christophe Claret Marguerite 37mm
Finishing off our list is the Christophe Claret Marguerite 37mm. For all the seriousness that characterizes their approach to watchmaking, the work that is infused with this timepiece seems to grow more seductive with each look. This timepiece was originally unveiled back in 2015, the Marguerite is centered on a daisy, with two butterflies fluttering around it to provide the time. One press on the pusher at two o’clock makes the numbers disappear, revealing a custom phrase as requested by the owner in their desired language.
