Valentine’s Day has always been about celebrating love. But, it goes way beyond that. It’s about celebrating the many facets of the most profound human emotion. What is the meaning of love in its purest form? It might imply different things to different people throughout time. It can be passionately expressed or linked via oneness. It might be open to each other or closely wrapped in self-respect. Love, in fact, appears to be devoid of any limitations.

The way love has too many faces, so do timepieces. They can range from modern to classic, elegant to funky- all holding a special emotion in everyone’s heart. Whether it’s to surprise your lady love or your man, gifting timepieces is like gifting eternal love. To make life easier for you, here is our curated list of the top 6 watches you could consider this Valentine’s Day. And yes, we did go with the cliche colour theme - Red

Let’s get straight into it… 

1. For the one with a heart of gold: Ladybird "Valentine’s Day 2022"

Blancpain watchmakers have been celebrating Valentine's Day for more than 20 years - and with good cause, since the Manufacture in Le Brassus is not fond of anything that is only temporary. The Ladybird "Valentine's Day 2022" is a great testament to enduring feelings, connecting time and love 99 times!

It is a symbol of eternity, with the brilliance of magnificent stones and materials, meticulously constructed to ensure that this watch finds a worthy and desirable position on the wrist of its chosen one. The tenderness, passion, and infinity of love are expressed through a white mother-of-pearl dial with polished red numerals and a diamond circle.

The 34.9 mm white gold case sparkles with 58 sparkling diamonds positioned delicately on the bezel and lugs. Their clarity contrasts sharply with the gleam of the rose-cut ruby adorning the watch crown. Love is reflected in the alligator leather strap, which is fastened to the wrist with a diamond-set pin buckle.

Red occurs on the crown, which is adorned with a ruby, as a symbol of passionate love. The flawless contrasts of the sky and the flecks of garnet in this white gold clock gracefully depict the flames of love. The fiery red alligator leather strap is finished off with a white gold triple-blade folding clasp adorned with 28 diamonds to complete the look.

The 1153 movement offers a guarantee of longevity, thanks to its enormous four-day power reserve and silicon balance-spring. The Ladybird "Valentine's Day 2022" watch is limited to 99 pieces and is as valuable as time itself. It is evidence of love, especially Blancpain's passion for women for nearly a century.

2. For the poetic lover: Breguet Reine de Naples Collection

The Reine of Naples is dressed in celestial poetry by Breguet. The white mother-of-pearl dial was chosen for its aesthetic, which features fluffy "clouds" floating between the moon-phase display and the hours, minutes, and seconds subdials. A 28-piece limited edition of this model is available.

This series, a symbol of feminine watchmaking, is named after the first wristwatch ever made, which was given to Napoleon's sister, the exquisite Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples, in 1812. Today, this timepiece, which started out as an oblong and has since evolved into an oval, is an unmistakably iconic women's watch. Whether gemset, beaded, or lacquered, each model in the contemporary line is a tribute to femininity.

An airy sky with white mother-of-pearl shimmer is studded with "clouds" on the dial. The path of love shows in red at 12 o'clock, indicating a 45-hour battery reserve. The delicately hammered moon-phase display is made of white gold and appears to be suspended in the clouds.

The chapter ring, as well as the centre of the little seconds display, are set with hand-guilloché natural white mother-of-pearl in the lower section of the dial. The hours and minutes are shown by the Breguet open-tipped blued steel hands.

Red occurs on the crown, which is adorned with a ruby, as a symbol of passionate love. The flawless contrasts of the sky and the flecks of garnet in this white gold clock gracefully depict the flames of love. The fiery red alligator leather strap is finished off with a white gold triple-blade folding clasp adorned with 28 diamonds to complete the look.

The new Reine de Naples 8905 has a self-winding movement at its heart. A straight-line Swiss lever escapement and a silicon hairspring are included. This is indeed a queen's watch!

3. For the powerful love: Pasha de Cartier 

The Pasha is a sensation of strength and power as well as an aesthetic...A cult timepiece with two new major designs for 2021, ranging from a more feminine 30 mm version to a more masculine 41 mm chronograph variant.

The Pasha watch is becoming more feminine with a new 30 mm size, after the release of the 35 mm version in 2020. A watch with a jewelry-watch diameter, quartz movement, and all of the characteristic Pasha touches, such as custom engraved initials hidden under the crown cover and adjustable straps.

Steel or gold, with or without diamonds, all of these models can be swapped out thanks to a Cartier-developed QuickSwitch system adaption. This hidden mechanism is initiated by a single push and integrates into the architecture beneath the casing.

4. For the one who portrays elegance: Omega Trésor

The new timepiece has a stainless steel case with a polished finish. The case is also set with 38 single-cut diamonds that curve smoothly along each side, in keeping with the well-known Trésor design.

The new colour scheme is perhaps the most distinctive feature. The lacquered white dial is bordered with red-transfer Roman numerals, and the red leather strap matches well. Another solitary diamond can be found on the crown, this time surrounded by a red ceramic flower composed of five OMEGA logos. When you turn the watch over, you'll notice that the OMEGA Calibre 4061 is hidden beneath a polished mirror caseback with a metalized "Her Time" motif.

5. For the one who always finds the right angle: Oris Rectangular 

Oris Rectangular is back with fresh dimensions, a new dial design, and vibrant dial and leather strap variations to suit every season. The Rectangular's four-sided stainless steel case and integrated straps characterise its classic, dressy, unisex design. The steps on the case flanks accentuate its presence, while the tapering of the lug tips ensures it lays comfortably and organically on the wrist.

The dials are available in white, blue, anthracite, and Bordeaux, with an Art Deco-inspired design. Rail tracks run around the dial's outer edge and an inner rectangle that echoes and complements the case shape. The pattern is completed with sword-shaped hands and a date window at 6 o'clock, which play with symmetry and asymmetry. Each watch comes with a quick-change leather strap in one of four colours: yellow, blue, anthracite, or Bordeaux. Oris Calibre 561, a Swiss-made automated mechanical time-and-date movement visible via a mineral glass case back, is housed inside each watch. The Oris Rectangular proves that a watch doesn't have to be round to be accurate.

6. For the daring one: Panerai Piccolo Due MadrePerla 

The new Panerai Piccolo Due Madreperla pushes the boundaries of the Luminor Due line, reimagining it with a global perspective. The outcome is a dynamic and varied statement of Italian style, balancing innovative materials with refined aesthetic features.

Panerai's aesthetic is unrivalled, and it's complemented by iridescent mother-of-pearl, a dazzling material that gives each watch its own personality. It reflects the light shed by numerals and indices filled with white SuperLumiNova with green brilliance, and proves an attractive compliment to the pink gold colour hands, applied numerals, and date window that shimmer with warm radiance.

The red lustrous alligator strap that goes with it is a unique, classy accessory that has global appeal. Panerai Piccolo Due Madreperla can also be customised with a wide range of alternative straps in a variety of colours, textures, materials, and stitches, which are available in boutiques or on request.
