Glashütte Original Explores Its Feminine Side

With a delicate, cushion-shaped case reminiscent of the 1920s, Glashütte Original’s new women’s-watch collection has a distinctly feminine edge. The Pavonina Collection is named from the Latin word for “peacock,” which aptly describes the bold showpiece: A stylized peacock tail is fashioned from 98 diamonds into feather-like lines. The case is flanked with an additional 114 radiant diamonds, as well as flexible lugs that softy hug the wrist. This particular model ($39,600) has a link bracelet of 18-karat red gold, but other variations (starting at $7,300) are available in the collection: The case comes in stainless steel or two-toned stainless steel and red gold, and band options include satin and alligator. The dial can be in mother-of-pearl or galvanized ruthenium, among other choices, and the galvanized versions come with guilloche finishing and custom engraving on back of the case.
