We take a look at the most diamond-studded timepieces in
the world that, like the precious gem itself, stand the test of time.
Another versatile piece – but no less extravagant – is Piaget’s Emperador Temple. This timepiece comprises two watches in one, with one face consisting of 481 brilliant-cut diamonds, 207 baguette-cut diamonds and an emerald-cut diamond, while the second boasts a Polynesian mother of pearl dial, 162 brilliant-cut diamonds, 11 baguette-cut diamonds and a bracelet set with 350 baguette-cut diamonds. Should we really say more?
Comprising 152.96 carats of white diamonds, with a 38.13 carat D Flawless pear-shaped diamond, The Fascination by Graff is more than a watch. Keeping versatility in mind, it has a removable part that doubles as a stunning ring. Showcasing meticulous and masterful metallurgy and gem-setting, The Fascination really lives up to its name.
This stunning watch is powered by the Caliber HUB 1100 mechanical movement and preserves approximately 42 hours of reserve power when fully wound, running at 21,600 beats per hour. Sure it is beyond cool, but wait until you hear that it’s coated by not one less than 1,282 diamonds totalling more than 100 karats, including six emerald-cut diamonds set on the bracelet.
The name says it all. Consisting of 18K white gold and 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds, the watch really is the epitome of the finest things in life. At a sleek 58×47.5mm and with a power reserve of up to 72 hours, this watch is perfect for those with a dynamic, modern lifestyle.
