Synopsis

This illustrated art book focuses on the most beautiful time-keeping machines made for women and how art, architecture and fashion have inspired their designs. It uniquely captures the parallel growth of women's roles and wristwatches throughout the 20th century. Taken to extreme heights of technological advancement, bejewelled with rare and precious stones and crafted to perfection, the examples of haute horlogerie presented express an unparalleled strength in luxury and how women's wristwatches symbolise power and progress by attesting to the exciting idea of female liberation. Captivating photographs, fascinating sketches and archival imagery allow an in-depth look at the rarefied industry that dedicates itself to crafting women's fine timepieces throughout the last century. In exclusive interviews with watch executives, designers and artisans, many of them women themselves, one begins to understand how the complexity of a women's nature is celebrated and understood in their creations.
