Snowhite her the seven watches
White is simple, neutral, pure. White matches everything and can be worn anytime. Snapshot on a feminine selection of white timepieces to embellish your 2015 summer style.
White stains easily but magic tricks leaves no trace of dirt. Wearing a white timepiece on a golden skin tanned by the summer sun gives no better WoW effect. Although you have already heard us talking about some pieces… it would be a shame to forget about the XS Turbine by Perrelet. The double-rotor with its constant rotation triggered by the movement of the wrist let the arrays of the turbine be shown with diamonds underneath it.
The iconic yet revisited Ladybird by Blancpain is available this summer with a matching white dial and bracelet where you can attach a little charm set with rubies and diamonds to the golden case.
The RM-07 launched early this year in white ceramic with a white rubber bracelet is the thinner version of the barrel case made for women only. The skeleton automatic movement can be shown within the two layers of sapphire allowing the heart of the watch paved with diamonds to shine even more.
Shenandoah and Mademoiselle Privé
Named after a sailing boat said to be one of the oldest and most beautiful boat in the world also known as a Virginian river in the United States, Peter Speake-Marin launched Shenandoah: the piece designed for a woman and by a woman. Rather than setting an existing piece with diamonds, Peter Speake-Marin wanted to do tribute to the feminine tribe. Two versions in 38mm x 31mm of the twelve models available are mounted on a white satin strap with a red gold case. On the white dial are located two time zones inviting you to travel with the black lines drawn on the dial echoing naval maps. The oval shape of the case hugs the wrist to perfection with a quartz movement provided with two red gold guilded hands indicating the hours and the minutes of dual timezone of the outer white dials with mother of pearl centers.
Coco Chanel made it a symbol of the brand and ever since the comete is promiment amongst Chanel creations. Launched this spring in the Mademoiselle Privé collection, the Comète timepiece is a diamond timepiece made of white and 570 brilliant-cut diamonds worth 3 carats setting the white gold case. Mademoiselle Privé has a waterproof quartz movement going down to 30 meters… although mounted on a white satin strap the white dial made of mother-of-pearl marquetry plays with light and reflections… you probably do not want to swim with it. Requiring hours of hand-work to assemble the pieces of the dial one by one… the comete motif is set with 10 baguette-cut diamonds and 141 brilliant-cut diamonds. A poetic image of the Chanel symbol landing on the dial at 4 o’clock.
Poiray and Armin Strom…
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the brand, Poiray launched its Premiere Manchette translated as the first cuff the French house ever made. Long called the first lady of the Place Vendome, Poiray comes again with a young and modern design, the première manchette is made of white successive ceramic links bordered by stainless steel. A quartz movement under a white mother of pearl dial. The rectangular band shape is half way between a watch and a piece of jewelry. To be worn absolutely.
The last piece of the selection is the heart-stopper of Watchonista's editor-in-chief Joel Grandjean. Being a conversant fan of white timepieces the Skeleton Pure Air launched by Armin Strom was a logical addition to his list. An in-house manufactured skeleton mechanical movement with a small strip located at 6 o’clock on the case … so subtle that only shrewd eyes will notice that it is their signature detail. More of a masculine timepiece, but thanks to the light weight of the titanium, the 43.4 mm diameter mounted on a white alligator strap and white hands cannot bother women… at least I wouldn’t!
