Geometric Timepieces Take Shape
By Roberta Naas
Unusual watchcase shapes were all the rage back in the heady days of the Roaring Twenties. In that era, designers offered up ovals, triangles, marquises and more. Then the classical era rushed in, and square and round cases stole the limelight. Today however, top brands understand the savvy woman’s desire to make an individual statement and are beginning to offer shapes based on archival designs and futuristic innovations. There’s no doubt about it: Watches are taking on new dimensions.
The Délices de Cartier Cartier watch ($22,250) has an all-new feminine shape reminiscent of candy. Sweet and enticing, the lozengeshaped oval is fashioned in 18k white gold, set with diamonds and placed askew on a satin strap for added elegance. 370 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills
