Blancpain Ladybird Ultraplate Saint-Valentin 2016 Automatic (Ref. 0063F-1954-63A) For Ladies / Swiss

Just in time for the St. Valentine's Day, the Swiss brand has presented the limited edition Blancpain Ladybird Ultraplate Saint-Valentin 2016 (Ref. 0063F-1954-63A). Featuring an in-house automatic movement with an exterior design done by something that looks like a team of real professionals, this limited edition watch may be a little expensive for most of us, but it still seems to be worth every penny.


Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) For Ladies / Swiss

The new Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Manufacture Ladies (ref. FC-703VD3SD4) is one of the finest timekeepers introduced so far by the brand. It is also one of those (still few) models of the Swiss watchmaker that is powered not by a slightly redecorated version of a run-off-the-mill blank movement made either by ETA or Sellita, but by a new caliber that was developed and built by Frederique Constant on their own production facilities. That says something, right?


Breitling Colt 36 Ladies SuperQuartz For Ladies / Quartz / Swiss

With its refreshed Breitling Colt 36 SuperQuartz model, the Swiss brand finally notices the demographics targeted by Dove's Real Beauty campaign that began more than a decade ago. Designed with slightly larger wrists in mind, the new Colt 36 may be a bit too large for a skinnier type of girls that French fashion houses seem to love so much, but, come on, let's celebrate some diversity here!


Alpina Comtesse Automatic For Ladies / Swiss

With its new Alpina Comtesse (refs. AL-525APWD3CD3B and AL-525APW3CD6B) series, the Swiss watchmaking brand targets a wide array of customers, both in terms of exterior styling and price. While some people may find this "one for everyone" concept a bit too undiscriminating, the logic behind it is undeniable. After all, Alpina is here for the money and there seems to be nothing more cost-effective than offering a model that, as generic as it is, allows the brand to make so many nice variations without investing too much money designing the new collection.


Pierre DeRoche GrandCliff Milady Chrono Automatic with Diamonds For Ladies / Swiss

The new Pierre DeRoche GrandCliff Milady Chrono delivers that winning combination of features that you will rarely see when it comes to wristwatches designed for ladies. It somehow manages to combine an "exclusive" caliber made by its parent company, a brilliantly decorated dial, as well as finely sculpted body and just the right number of precious stone in a unique package that makes this timepiece immediately adorable and extremely desirable. Frankly, I wasn't able to find a single flaw with this beautiful device.


Glycine F104 Automatic: Bigger Case, New Dial Swiss

While the original Glycine F104 (ref. 3933) wristwatch that the Swiss watchmaker has delivered back in April looked absolutely killer to me with its clean, vintage-inspired design, somebody at the company's HQ has probably decided that sales are not quite satisfactory. Enters the Glycine F104 v.2, which is now available in a choice of four or five dials, and even includes a version with a steel black PVD bezel with 46 diamonds (1.80 carats, yuck!)


Breguet Reine De Naples Princesse (Ref. 8968) For Ladies / Swiss

The new Breguet Reine De Naples Princesse 8968 (Refs. 8968BR/11/986 0D0D & 8968BR/X1/986 0D0D) delivers a nice blend of a classic-looking ovoid body with all the usual stuff that we expect from the collection. The list includes a notched side strip and crown, which is quite ergonomically placed at 4 o'clock, and a decisively modern off-centered dial with stylized numerals and a very light variation of the traditional "Breguet" hands that so many -ahem- other watchmakers seem to love.


Chanel J12-365: Ceramic Paradise For Ladies / Swiss

Presented just over four months ago at Baselworld 2014 trade fair, the new Chanel J12-365 wristwatch was presented in a total of eight different variations ranging from a fairly unassuming version with glossy ceramic body and polished notched stainless steel bezel to a lot more conspicuous variation with "beige" gold bezel and hands and lots of diamonds to admire.
