Standout Women’s Watches from Watches and Wonders 2024
NUVO Magazine
by Claudia Cusano
2d ago
Women’s watches are having a moment and being worn more than ever. The days of the “shrink it and pink it” design approach for women’s watches (although pink is very much de rigueur these days) is waning. Historically, women’s watches have been typecast in a supporting role: pastel-coloured enamel dials, quartz movements, and diamond accents. As female buyers are becoming more watch savvy, brands have had to deliver with models that are not simply stylish but also as capable and technically complex as those for men (watches remain gendered in brand catalogues, but there’s a clear movement tow ..read more

A New Take on a Classic: The Revival of the Zenith 1969 Defy A3648 Watch
NUVO Magazine
by Claudia Cusano
3d ago
A proper watch collection is not complete without at least one dive watch. Now it’s time to add another: the Zenith Defy Revival A3648, a new take on an oldie. The watch is a revival of the original 1969 model, one of Zenith‘s first dive watches. Zenith has frequently turned to its archives for reissues. The approach is straightforward: maintain the original aesthetics as much as possible while upgrading the technical movements and materials. While not a creative formula, it is an effective one, particularly with appealing vintage models. Such is the case with the Defy Revival A3648.   ..read more

For Chanel, It’s Couture O’Clock at Watches and Wonders
NUVO Magazine
by Claudia Cusano
5d ago
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel learned to sew as a child, and on her way to building what is perhaps the most famous fashion house, she worked as a seamstress by day and cabaret singer by night. So it’s fitting that the new watch collection that Arnaud Chastaingt, director of Chanel’s Watchmaking Creation Studio, created for Watches and Wonders is a tribute to the designer doyenne and the tools of her craft: thread, thimble, safety pins, scissors, and measuring tape.     The collection, available in Chanel boutiques in June, includes various versions of the J12—one model in which time is ..read more
