The annual Watches and Wonders exhibition in Geneva featured a captivating display of women’s timepieces this year. The event highlighted the combination of sophisticated aesthetics with advanced technology.

Here are some of the names that made waves with their remarkable women’s watches at Watches and Wonders 2024.


Cartier Animal Jewelry Watch

Cartier Animal Jewelry Watch

Cartier’s watchmaking takes a bold step forward in 2024 with the introduction of their Animal Jewellery watch, known for its playful use of animal motifs. 

This year, the renowned jeweler unveils a captivating chimera – a watch entirely adorned in the contrasting patterns of zebra and crocodile.

The timepiece represents a captivating fusion of graphic design and organic inspiration. Each zebra stripe is meticulously hand-lacquered, resulting in a striking visual texture. This “imaginary creature” encircles a diamond-shaped dial, seemingly embracing it in a luxurious, wild embrace. The intricate engraving surrounding each colored gemstone further exemplifies Cartier’s exceptional craftsmanship.

This distinctive creation builds upon Cartier’s longstanding tradition of integrating animal motifs into their timepieces. The iconic panther debuted on a Cartier watch case in 1914, and since then, the brand has consistently pushed boundaries with its whimsical and unconventional designs.


Chopard's L'Heure du Diamant

Chopard’s L’Heure du Diamant collection shines a spotlight on the timeless allure of diamonds. Renowned for their expertise in jewelry watches, Chopard’s artisans have crafted a stunning fusion of contemporary design and the “queen of precious stones.”

The collection features a 26mm timepiece crafted from ethical gold. This creation is richly embellished with diamonds and boasts a choice of textured mother-of-pearl or luxurious malachite for the dial. A unique bark-style bracelet sculpted from gold using an in-house technique completes the ensemble.

The L’Heure du Diamant is not just beautiful, it’s technically impressive. Powered by the Chopard 10.01-C movement, one of the market’s smallest and thinnest mechanical manual-winding calibers, this watch is a testament to Chopard’s mastery of form and function. 


The Hermès Cut

The Hermès Cut watch celebrates simplicity with its bold, geometric design. True to Hermès’ heritage, the timepiece features clean lines and sharp angles, resulting in a universally appealing yet distinctive identity.

The balanced proportions of its satin-brushed and polished case emphasize the watch’s character, highlighted by gleaming, clean-cut edges. A distinctive detail is a crown, positioned at an unexpected half-past-one location and adorned with a lacquered or engraved “H.”

The Hermès Cut watch is available in various options: entirely crafted in steel, a sleek combination of steel and rose gold, or adorned with 56 dazzling bezel-set diamonds. In each iteration, the timepiece exudes timeless personality and versatile style.


Big Bang Integrated Time Only Watch

Hublot returns to its origins with the Big Bang Integrated Time Only, a timepiece that encapsulates the essence of the iconic “Big Bang” collection.

The distinctive case with its signature “ears,” the bezel adorned with H-screws, and the skeleton hands remain but have been reimagined for a more refined experience. This essence extends beyond aesthetics – the diameter has been reduced from 40mm to a more versatile 38mm.

The brand’s commitment to gender-neutral designs is evident in these six new models. The case and bracelet are integrated and crafted from the same material, ensuring a seamless look and feel.

Material options include brushed titanium with black or blue dials, 18k King Gold with the same dial color, and high-tech ceramic. The ceramic options include a striking all-navy blue version and a “Black Magic” edition featuring a completely blacked-out case, bracelet, and dial.

Diamonds adorn the watches, with options for a sun crafted from either snow-set yellow sapphires or guilloché gold. Murano aventurine glass provides a mesmerizing backdrop, while delicate openwork reveals sparkling diamond stars.

Mother-of-pearl shrouds, adorned with guilloché patterns, symbolize the horizon (white for 38mm, blue for 33mm). A sapphire case back reveals the mechanics and a star-studded oscillating weight adorned with a miniature, enameled fairy gazing at the celestial spectacle.

Parmigiani Fleurier introduces a striking addition to its Tonda PF Automatic 36mm collection: a two-tone model seamlessly merging modern luxury with the line’s inherent elegance and inclusivity.

The key to this design achievement lies in using 18-karat rose gold. Parmigiani Fleurier has meticulously applied this precious metal to accentuate specific architectural elements of the case and bracelet. The result is a captivating interplay of materials that enhances the watch’s aesthetics.

The signature teardrop lugs, crafted from rose gold, serve as the starting point for the integrated bracelet. This bracelet features a captivating mix of finishes. Polished stainless steel links flank the ends, while the central horizontal link boasts a luxurious satin finish. 

Powering the Tonda PF Automatic 36mm is the in-house Calibre PF770 movement. This 36mm caliber, crafted to Parmigiani Fleurier’s exacting standards, boasts a 60-hour power reserve and finishing, including beveled steel and beautifully decorated surfaces.
