    Tsavorites arranged in the form of creepers, blue sapphires shaped like leaves, and pink sapphires representing flowers adorn the 18-karat-white-gold case and band of the $215,000 Charles Oudin Paris Full Amazone Curvex (www.charlesoudin.com). The gemstones are set among pavé diamonds in this timepiece from the Parisian watchmaker whose namesake and founder, an associate of Abraham-Louis Breguet at the end of the 18th century, was one of the pioneers of modern French horology.
