Richard Mille RM 63-02: $145,000

The new Richard Mille RM 63-02 makes holiday travel a breeze with an easy-to-use world timer function that, once set to the local time, can display the time in 27 different time zones around the world by simply turning the bezel to the corresponding city. With a power reserve of around 50 hours, the RM 63-02 makes for a reliable and easy-going companion wherever your travels take you. (richardmille.com)

 

Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic: $7,500

Add a splash of color to your wardrobe this winter with the Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Collection. Inspired by the manufacture’s famed Spezimatic wristwatch (first introduced in 1964), the retro-styled timepieces come in five colorful dial options, decorated with either sunray or guilloche finishing.

Chanel Boy·Friend: $12,500 to $27,000

Borrowing heavily from the aesthetics of men’s watches, the Chanel Boy·Friend makes a bold statement. Its large case, thick bezel, and black alligator strap exude masculinity, though this effect is softened by its simple, unadorned dial and octagonal shape borrowed from the Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle. Further adding to its femininity, the watch’s bezel can be set with up to 66 brilliant-cut diamonds (depending on case size). (chanel.com)

 

Urwerk UR-106: $160,800

A highly technical take on a women’s watch, the Urwerk UR-106 uses three independently rotating satellite disks—each printed with four numerals corresponding to an hour—spinning around the watch’s central column. As the disks arc along the bottom of the watch, a mark under the currently displayed hour indicates the minutes on a stationary scale. And if all this mechanical magic is not enough to capture her fancy, nearly the whole case is covered with diamonds. (urwerk.com)
