No Stone Unturned

Sleek watches for him, and chic baubles for her

Author Jacqueline Detwiler

HERE’S THE THING ABOUT THIS WATCH: You can’t have it. Well, all right, you can if you have $5 million lying around and are able to convince Singapore-based dealer The Hour Glass to resell the one-of-a-kind creation after having just bought it at the BaselWorld watch and jewelry show in March. But here’s another thing about this watch: To craft it, 12 gem cutters and five setters worked full time for seven months to select, shape and place nearly 1,300 diamonds in white gold, which makes the Big Bang, like the Mona Lisa or the Sistine Chapel, the kind of treasure you don’t need to own to appreciate. $5,000,000 / www.thehourglass.com
