Timeless, bold, sparkling, or understated, the perfect pair to delight every aesthetic.

By Paul Frederick
Bell & Ross Matte Black watches

Originally designed with aviation and military performance in mind, Bell & Ross Matte Black ceramic cases are reminiscent of aeronautical control panels. Perfectly utilitarian but stylish for both him in 42mm ($3,700) and her in 38mm ($2,400).

L.U.Chopard XPS watches

The stunningly simple gray dial, obtained through galvanic treatment, elevates the already classic L.U.Chopard XPS style in two new interpretations, both in 40mm, one with expertly set diamonds ($33,200) and the other without ($17,300).

Rolex Day Date watch

Since its inception in 1956, the Rolex Day Date has been known as the president’s watch, thanks to the long list of visionaries who have worn the style over the years. The days of the week are available in a choice of 26 languages and multiple combinations of metal and dials are available. Enduring favorites are the 36mm with diamonds ($36,150) and 40mm without ($36,550).

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée and Grande Seconde Paillonnée watches

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée for her ($44,600) and Grande Seconde Paillonnée for him ($42,000) elegantly bring the Fleur de Lys and Fleur de Vie symbols to life using the ancient decorative technique of paillonné enameling. The resulting timepieces are works of modern art, and limited to eight pieces each.

Hublot Big Bang watches

Recognized as being the first to pair unlikely materials such as rubber and gold together, the Hublot Big Bang continues to impress. The 42mm features a Unico 2 movement ($36,700) and the 38mm’s bezel is beautifully accentuated with diamonds ($23,100). Both include satin-finished cases and structured rubber straps.

Blancpain watches

Taking its name from the founder’s native village, the Blancpain Villeret collection maintains a timelessly elegant style.

Montblanc Star Legacy Moonphase watch

For her, the Bohème Day & Night comes in a delightfully petite 34mm stainless-steel case with guilloche dial and diamond indexes ($3,660).

Tiffany & Co. 1837 Makers watch collection

The Tiffany & Co. 1837 Makers watch collection pays tribute to the brand’s timeless aesthetic with a classic square shape accentuated by a modern bracelet constructed of interlocking T’s. For him, 27mm ($3,500), and for her, 22mm with diamonds ($5,800).
