5 New Diamond-Studded Watches Guaranteed To Dazzle


Time is precious. And when it comes to these five showstopping wristwatches, we mean that oh so literally.

Longines DolceVita

Longines Dolce Vita watch

The DolceVita collection from Longines channels the exuberance of the Italian “sweet life” into a rectangular design that evokes the art deco flair of the 1920s. With its diamond-set steel case, silvered flinqué dial, and painted Roman numerals, the quartz timepiece is a perennial style winner. $3,675;

Omega Constellation Co‑Axial Master Chronometer Small Seconds

Omega Constellation watch

Available in June, the new Constellation Co‑Axial Master Chronometer Small Seconds from Omega comes in a sweet 34 mm stainless steel and 18k Sedna Gold package, instantly recognizable thanks to the model’s signature side “claws.” The diamond-pavé bezel, white mother-of-pearl dial, diamond-set hour markers, and small seconds subdial ring at 6 o’clock—elegantly set with diamonds—all amp up the glamour quotient of the timepiece. But there’s plenty of substance here too: The Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8802, visible through the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, is one of the most respected mechanical movements in modern watchmaking. $14,300;

Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 4997/200G

Patek Philippe Ref. 4997 Calatrava watch

Few watches epitomize classic watchmaking better than Patek Philippe’s Calatrava model. The 35 mm white gold case of ref. 4997/200G frames a guilloched lacquered dial in a fetching shade of midnight blue adorned with concentric waves that lend it a subtle depth effect. Now equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, the watch comes on a matching blue brushed calfskin strap with a satinated finish. The 76 round-cut internally flawless diamonds circling the bezel complete this all-too-pretty picture. $36,670; Patek Philippe

Chopard Happy Diamonds Joaillerie

Chopard Happy Diamonds Joaillerie watch

The floating diamonds inside this Chopard Happy Diamonds Joaillerie timepiece (also pictured at top) have been a house signature since 1976. And yet the design remains as youthful as ever. The 38 mm 18k rose gold case, fronted by a black Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial, holds 4.75 cts. t.w. of white diamonds, 15 of which dance around the outer dial like nobody’s watching. $45,500; Chopard

Cartier Panthère Songeuse

Cartier panther watch

More than 100 years after it first appeared on a Cartier wristwatch, the panther is still the house’s emblematic animal. And it’s easy to see why. The feline’s diamond-encrusted curves are a perfect match for the 28.4 mm white gold case of this Panthère Songeuse model, shown here in a dazzlingly iced-out style that features 1,116 brilliant-cut diamonds (totaling 4.57 cts.) scattered along the case, dial, and panther and an additional 325 diamonds (totaling 9.15 cts.) on the bracelet. Meow! $227,000;
