Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds 

Made for explorers and urbanites, it’s all about versatility when we think of Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra. The 38mm timepiece in stainless steel, powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8802, includes a new small second subdial at 6 o’clock. What makes this perfect for everyday wear are the lush new dials in dark- and light green, and white mother-of-pearl detailing. Perfect with your breezy sundresses and linen separates.

Gucci G-Timeless

The G-Timeless line is created for city girls, be it for work, holidays or dinners. We love the pastel pink lacquered dial complemented by the elegant stainless steel bracelet. Plus, the diamonds encircling the bezel inject subtle glam into your outfits. If you take a closer look, the Maison’s iconic bee appears on the dial as a playful accent.

Richard Mille RM 07-01

It’s time to introduce colour into your collection, and what better way to express that notion than flaunting this Richard Mille RM 07-01 piece this season. The latest Coloured Ceramics collection consists of three colourful shades in pastel blue, pink and lavender, upon signature geometric ceramic elements. What makes this release so unique are the radiant multi-material guilloché (a decorative and very traditional craft that originated in the 16th century) dials. Plus, the multi-colour straps make a nice touch for those into colour-blocking collectables.
