The new Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée collection comprises a long necklace that can be worn several ways as well as four secret watches

SINGAPORE (July 8): Van Cleef & Arpels has come up with a delightful necklace that offers the wearer a choice of different combinations. The long yellow-gold chain is handcrafted while the pendant comprises three different-sized circles of threaded gold beads. The middle circle of gold beads can be replaced with one of turquoise, coral or onyx beads.

Inspired by the toi et moi (you and me) jewellery collection, the diamond-paved watches are basically three bracelets and a pendant that feature hidden timepieces with an elegant white mother-of-pearl dial. In keeping with the Perlée collection’s playful spirit, the bracelets and pendant are in a variety of colours and materials.

PREPPY STYLE

NEW CHIME

This year, Jaeger-LeCoultre debuts the Master Grande Tradition Répétition Minutes Perpétuelle, which represents the next generation of chime-related innovation at La Grande Maison. Its movement, the automatic calibre 950, unites the two apex values of chime quality that were previously thought to be incompatible — power and beauty. A new gong system replicates the richness and strength of antique sonnerie pocket watches while the case design redefines the timelessness and modernity of the Master Grande Tradition timepieces. Particular attention was paid to the ergonomics of the case, from the deeply convex bezel and broad bevels on the lugs to the smoothly tapered minute repeater slide. The timepiece also features an automatic winding system and intuitive perpetual calendar setting.

SUMMER GLOW

This summer, By Terry’s collection boasts rose-based ingredients that help revive and restore skin’s natural radiance. Those who prefer the natural look can choose the Brightening CC serum or the CC powder. For dry skin, try the Baume de Rose, a multipurpose oil packed with hydrating, nourishing, smoothing and repairing actives such as rose oils, black rose extract, rose blossom essential wax and vitamin E. This formula can be used on the body, face and hair.

INSPIRED BY PARIS

Moynat’s Josephine bag speaks to the modern woman. It takes its inspiration from Paris of the 1920s, when women were into art, dance, painting and literature, living life to the fullest. The elegant yet practical bag carries a strong signature of the maison in its play on colours and its geometric curves.

NEW ERA IN ACCURACY

TAG Heuer introduces a state-of-the- art carbon hairspring in the latest interpretation of the Carrera: the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph. The timepiece’s perfectly concentric oscillations are rooted in an improved performance and give a unique signature to the watch’s heartbeat. Its multi-layered dial and movement combination, with sandblasted and fine-brushed hexagons on the movement plate, is visible through an open-worked dial. A neon-green colour adorns various elements of the watch, including the aluminium bridge and the inscription on the tourbillon movement.
