TAG’s Monsoon Offer

July 5, 2011

Timing it with the monsoon TAG Heuer launches water resistant watches and this year they have three watches to offer. Practical yet sophisticated, these exquisite timepieces are a must have this monsoon season!

Carrera Lady Diamond

Bearing resemblance to its masculine equivalent yet set apart by its feminine charms: 13 diamonds on the index, steel bracelet and mother-of-pearl dial. Drawing inspiration from the classic style of Carrera watches, the TAG Heuer Carrera Lady Diamond contains a high precision movement. It is chic and feminine, and comes in dial colour options in white or pink mother of pearl, or black, enhanced by 13 diamonds or elegant baton markers. Simplicity and efficiency are the governing style principles, revisited with the TAG Heuer woman’s superlative elegance and grace. Price: Rs. 1,34,000

Grand CARRERA Calibre 36RS Caliper Chronograph

Winner of the Grand Prix d’Horlorgerie de Geneve, Favourite Sports Watch, the TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is an exceptional timepiece animated by a column-wheel movement based on the famous «El Primero». This timepiece of superlative design is remarkable for being the first Swiss-made mechanical watch capable of measuring and displaying 1/10th second thanks to the rotating scale. The watch is driven by a C.O.S.C.- certified automatic movement that beats at an impressive 36,000 vibrations per hour. This high frequency allows the central seconds hand to advance at 1/10th second intervals – a technological achievement of the highest order. It is made possible by a special information display developed by TAG Heuer: the Caliper Rotating Scale that magnifies the second by ten times, controlled by a stunning red-edged crown at 10.00. Price: Rs. 4,26,000

Aquaracer Calibre S 1/100th Chronograph

TAG Heuer developed and patented the Calibre S movement, accurate to 1/100th of a second. It’s what makes this watch revolutionary. For maximum readability, watch and chronograph times are displayed by the hour and minute hands. The semi circular Calibre S counters show 1/10th and 1/100th of a second in chronograph mode, or the date in hour mode. The counter at 4:30 indicates 1/100th-of-a-second and the counter at 7:30shows 1/10th-of-a-second. In hour mode, the perpetual retrograde date is displayed by the hands of these two counters- until December 31, 2099. Like all Aquaracer editions, the Calibre S 1/100th carries the essential features of the line. Price: Rs. 1,16,000.

Victorinox’s Victoria is an all-day wear watch and is accessibly priced

Swiss watchmaker Victorinox has unveiled its non diamond versions of Victoria at much more affordable price.  Easy on your pocket this feminine and serene, the new Victoria — named after the mother of Victorinox founder, Mr. Karl Elsener – is effortlessly simple and straightforward. The seamless integration of the bracelet makes it fluid as it smoothly follows every movement of the wrist. Accessibly priced, rich to the touch and the eye, the 28mm watch is a perfect all-day wear.

The natural dial colours — eggshell beige, charcoal grey or a warm shade of brown — were chosen to play down contrasts with the shimmering steel, which is finely brushed and mirror polished. The muted palette heightens the watch’s sophistication.

The bracelet design plays a key role here: feeling weightless and extremely slender, its linking system is hidden from view. The links are uniquely hinged together, and the spherical middle part of the case, which meets the flat, rimless part of the bracelet, creates a subtle half-moon shape.

Additionally, there is the play of textures and patterns on the dial. Off-centred sunrays starting at 12 o’clock draw attention to the famous logo of Victorinox Swiss Army. On most models the hour markers are luminescent dots set into rounded and polished cabochons. The overall effect is feminine, timeless and elegantly understated. Price Rs 35,000 apprx.

Luxury watches from Goenka Diamonds

blue sapphire

A known name in high-end and premium brand of jewellery collections, Goenka Diamonds and Jewels Ltd. has entered into the world of luxury watches with its collection under the brand name, Ceres. The Swiss-made quartz watches with its dial bedded in minute white diamonds and studded with colourful diamonds on the external are just one of the attractions at the launch.

The Collection includes Blue Sapphire. Barring the leather made-strap, everything from the dial to the outer casing is covered in blue and white colored diamonds.

The other creation, Citrine/Peridot has been designed for people who prefer classic yellow Gold over the white variety. The Swiss-made watch is studded with Citrines (yellow diamonds) and a rare diamond called Peridot! The clasp of the watch too has been designed on Yellow Gold for your liking. Citrine is a very hard diamond and is resistant to scratches to a large extent; hence you can forget about spoiling it.

The Pink Tourmaline/Citrine is another of the Ceres series of watches where Orange and Purple Diamonds have been used; this gives it a touch and look of royalty. The leather strap and the Yellow Gold used in the clasp perfectly complement this Swiss-made beauty.

The Pink Tourmaline/Diamond has been designed keeping in mind the subtle tastes of the higher strata of the society – while some prefer the Classic Yellow Gold, some like to experiment with White Gold as well. The Pink Tourmaline is studded with pink and white crystals while the dial lies on a bed of small white diamonds. Price Rs 6,00,000.
