Blancpain Saint Valentine’s Day 2015: This year, Blancpain’s new model lies in a pink rose designed especially for the occasion. An esthetic feminine touch for a mechanical watch, the Saint Valentine’s 2015 model’s mother-of-pearl dial is decorated with an inlaid rose: a sweet flower for understated grace. Limited edition of 14 engraved and numbered pieces.
Chanel rocks the love boat with its “Première Rock” watch. Our pick is the Première Rock Rose, a limited edition of 1,000 pieces: a white mother-of-pearl dial strapped by a steel triple row chain interwoven with pastel pink leather. An extension of the first Chanel watch of 1987, its chain bracelet is similar to the chain straps of Chanel purses, and the octagonal dial replicates the shape of Place Vendome in Paris and that of the bottle cap of Number 5, giving the watch a younger and edgier look.
Richard Mille wowed visitors of the SIHH 2015 with the RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur, a unique timepiece that represents decades of traditions in horological artistry: a delicate magnolia made of five handcrafted pink petals opens up, setting the entire tourbillon upwards, just like the natural motion of the million-year old flower. Limited to 30 pieces worldwide, the flower in this watch would surely amaze any lady far more than a bouquet of a thousand roses. Pre-order for Valentine’s next year.

The 3.44 carat, 28-piece limited edition holds a pink gold case with gem-set bezel, encasing autumnal yellow, orange and pink foliage composed of semi-precious stones, dotted along slender gold wire ivy branches set with diamonds.
