With brands presenting paired models for men and women, these sets of watches marry aesthetics, technology and design to deliver the very best for both worlds.



The legendary Golden Bridge first presented by Corum in 1980, has released an automatic version which presents a linear-winding baguette movement. The new tonneaushaped case is larger than its predecessors' with a transparent element which allows the movement to be admired from all sides. Fitted with a crocodile leather strap and gold buckle for men, and 90 full-cut size diamonds for women, both models are limited editions.



The Polo Fortyfive Chronograph for men comes set in a titanium case with alternating satinbrushed surfaces and polished 18-carat pink gold goldrons. The black dial within features pink gold luminescent hour-markers, and is finished with a sapphire crystal case back. It is complemented by a daintier female version, the Polo Fortyfive Lady. Set in an 18-carat white gold case, the bezel is bejewelled with 50 brilliant-cut diamonds and polished godrons. A neutral grey dial sports eight diamonds and luminescent applied hour-markers featuring Arabic numerals.



In 1832, Longines set up shop in what was then a small village nestling in a valley deep in the Swiss Jura mountains: Saint-Imier. The fate of Longines and Saint-Imier has since been interwoven, and the Longines Saint-Imier Collection gives form to this relationship. The shape of the case is inspired by a model dating back to 1945, and is a common theme throughout the collection. The sleek lines and the distinctive lugs create a balance between classical and contemporary design, and all the models in the collection are fitted with mechanical movements, the intricate workings of which can be admired through the transparent sapphire back.



The latest edition in Chopard's Racing Colours collection is the Speed Silver model. The timepiece is reminiscent of the legendary German speed machines that dominated motor-racing competitions in the 1930s. The Speed Silver's masculinity is juxtaposed with the sporty elegance of its female version, the Mille Miglia Chrono Lady. All white, it is recognisable by the rubber strap featuring the famous 1960s Dunlop Racing tyre-tread motif. The collection's signature look is exemplified by a mother-ofpearl dial and a diamond-set bezel.

High functionality and masculine styling make this Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph a necessity for all lovers of motor racing. A high-tech Calibre 16 automatic movement powers the chronograph functions, and the sapphire crystal fitted into the caseback reveals the movement in action. These graceful Aquaracer quartz timepieces imbibe all the qualities of Tag Heuer excellence-performance, reliability, and precision-with the added luxury of diamonds for the ladies.



The Tissot T-Race MotoGP is a high-tech timepiece inspired by the beastly speed of bike racing. It sports a dashboard-inspired dial, a bezel illustrating the bike's break disc, carbon fibre composites identical to those of the bikes, and yellow aerodynamic lines with a black base bracelet. For women, the Tissot T-Race Danica Patrick is a perfect match. The watch looks elegant decked with diamonds on its white dial, and the fine detail of a tyre tread on the back of the silicone strap is a tribute to athlete Danica Patrick's speed and performances.



Ever experimental and innovative, Swiss watchmaker Rado has now produced another world's first-the Rado True Thinline. Highly regarded for its form, function and contemporary design, the Rado True collection presents the thinnest ceramic watch in the world. Showcased in an elegant case, the collection features clear gold coloured indexes, replaced by diamonds on the Jubile version. Each watch is accentuated by the integrated sapphire crystal of the dome, and the components have been intensively reworked.
