No gift is more symbolic of life’s milestones than a fine timepiece. It represents the passage of time and commemorates life’s special moments. As a gift, it is universally appropriate for any occasion, from a birthday or graduation to a wedding anniversary or the recognition of a hard-earned achievement. A timepiece is a celebration of life! It also makes the perfect family heirloom. Advances in watchmaking over the past decade mean that today’s luxury timepieces are made to last more than one lifetime, and with proper servicing, they can be passed down to successive generations. They are robust enough that family members can wear and enjoy them rather than hide them away in a safe. A fine watch will not only retain its value but serve as an important reminder of family memories and life’s precious moments.

LADIES’ JEWELRY Diamonds on ladies’ watches are like icing on a cake: a necessary and delicious finishing touch. But the application of diamonds doesn’t necessarily mean layering them on thick. A ladies’ watch doesn’t have to look like the crown jewels to be impressive. A few well-placed diamonds, even in small quantities, can make a watch ultra-feminine and very special.

Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase Stars The moonphase has always been considered a romantic complication because of the beauty and poetry of the complication. It is one of the most graphic complications and is, therefore, often depicted on ladies’ watches. The Slimline Moonphase Stars is set with 60 diamonds, in a 39 mm stainless steel case.
