Although popular aesthetic details in women’s watches have traditionally entailed lashings of sparkles, polished finishes and feminine motifs, it doesn’t always come at the cost of a mechanical movement.
Take, for instance, the Frédérique Constant set of four women’s automatic timepieces, launched at BaselWorld 2013.
Designed in partnership with the World Heart Federation to raise money through sales for the Hearts of Children Campaign, these mechanical watches offer women a more technical timepiece.
Meanwhile, the vanilla-dialled watches feature a double-heart shaped aperture and options including diamond additions and satin straps. The rotor has a special Hearts of Children engraving and the dials have been guilloched with the World Heart Federation logo.
