Next up on our list of the top 5 classic ladies watch is a timepiece whose unique design has endured for decades. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso was born in the 1930’s to withstand polo matches, with an innovative case that flips over to protect the watch’s delicate glass and dial. This Reverso Duetto features two dials which the wearer can select between by simply flipping the case. The first dial features Arabic numbers, black hour and minute hands, a minute track and a Guilloche pattern at the center of the dial. The second dial is far more minimalistic, as it lacks hour markers, but consists of a beautiful and golden rimmed mother of pearl dial with gold hour and minute hands as well as a diamond bezel. For a watch that adapts to your style, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Duetto is your perfect timepiece.
Caroline Scheufele knew what a new generation of luxury lovers craved when she created Chopard’s Happy Sport in 1993. Designed as a more casual version of the Happy Diamonds watch collection, Scheufele dared to combine diamonds with stainless steel, a first in the watch industry. This Happy Sport contains seven bezel set diamonds that freely float over the dial. The diamonds are held between two panes of sapphire crystal so they will never tip over or scratch the dial. Sleek with white Roman numerals and stick hour markers, the dial showcases a subtle date window at 4:30. As a versatile sports watch that can be worn at any occasion, it’s no wonder why Chopard’s Happy Sport is one of our top 5 classic ladies watches.
