These Are The Luxury Watches To Add To Your Collection Now

From vintage weighing scale-like designs to sculptural, contemporary pieces, here are the luxury watches to consider this season.
Baignoire Allongee 18K pink gold watch on alligator strap
The Baignoire Allongee is a ’60s Mod variation with a more graphic, elongated form, updated with sculptural studs that reference the maison’s jewellery designs. Baignoire 18K yellow gold watch on alligator skin strap
Getting its name and inspiration from the French word for bathtub, Cartier’s Baignoire is a 1958 archival design with a playful oval case that gets refined this year with the likes of a narrower bracelet and tidier Roman numerals for indices.  Serpenti Seduttori 18K white gold watch with diamonds on matching bracelet, Bvlgari
Known for its abstract snakehead-inspired case, Bvlgari’s Serpenti watch family welcomes its most contemporary addition with the Seduttori, distinguished by a slimmer side profile and a brand new, more flexible bracelet made up of hexagonal links, said to sit like second skin.   Gucci Grip PVD-coated steel watch on leather strap, Gucci
Its moniker is a nod to the grip tape that skateboarders paste onto their boards, but Gucci’s Grip is more reminiscent of a Brutalist-meets-turn-of-the-century timepiece with its monolithic, vintage weighing scale-like design. To read the time, study its three counters that tell the hour, minutes and date. Liens Lumiere 18K pink gold watch with diamonds on alligator skin strap, Chaumet
The sumptuous, curvilinear lines of Chaumet’s Liens Lumiere were drawn from steel ribbons, but have a futuristic, exoskeleton effect, made feminine with a mother-of-pearl dial and exotic skin strap in colours ranging from classic black to fuchsia.   Galop d’Hermes 18K rose gold watch with diamonds on alligator skin strap, Hermes
Collaborating with 36-year-old California lighting and furniture designer Ini Archibong, Hermes creates the Galop d’Hermes, a new ladies timepiece with a sculptural stirrup-inspired case, irreverent touches like a crown at the six o’clock position and numerals that go from big to small as one moves across the dial.
