34 jewelry watches to drool over!

By Esther Ligthart on Wednesday, 07 December 2016, in Women's watches, Inspiration

From Boucheron to Cartier and many many more!

Jewelry watches have been created to meet the demands of ladies that just don’t want to settle for a simple watch! Both jewelry brands and watch brands have gone at great length to not just meet the client wishes but to overwhelm and exceed expectations. A very niche part of both the watch- and jewelry industry, but one I like to drool over….

The famous, historical jewelry houses have never stopped tempting us with their daring dreams and creations. Each of them, have developed a small but beautiful range of jewelry watches.

Storytelling and jewelry watches 

It’s like a perfect marriage from a storytelling point of view. Why? Jewelry, brands and watches come together in a kaleidoscope of colors, techniques, materials and design. Put that together with a brand’s vision and history and there you have a beautiful tale to tell. Although I would always love to think that they will direct any story to the emotions a client might feel, wearing a jewelry watch like the ones we present you today!

Secret watches

Wearing such a watch is like having a gem on your arm, often the jewelry watches are the so-called; Secret watches. The design is made to look like a bracelet, but contains a mechanism to open up a part of the watch and give away it's treasure: the watch.

Craftsmanship at its finest

These pieces are somewhat over the top at times. But they provide me, and hopefully you, great fun at exploring them. Be aware, you’ll get an overload of superlatives, as most of these watches are anything but modest. It’s the true glitter, glamour and the finest of the finest. In fact, most of the watches will cost more than your car. Or yours and mine together. But there is nothing wrong with enjoying astonishing craftsmanship.

And oh my, these watches are examples of craftsmanship at its finest. Ps: below, my pick. The watch I personally drool over :-)

    I absolutely adore watches with designs on their faces. Not a novel idea at all, but what about that execution. The styling, details and colors are making me want to re-do my christmas shopping list! Thanks for this!
