What’s your type – classic, minimal or edgy?
New strap colours, different watchfaces, more versatile designs – these are a few of the many reasons we could give to buy ourselves a new watch. What perfect timing to consider the idea, since there’s a few new watches by our favourite designer labels launched recently in the market.
We have added these three watches to our wishlist this week to keep us on time and on point.

Inspired by the 70s and created in 2003, the first La D de Dior was made for the woman who borrows her man’s watch so she is reminded of him. Since then, the collection has been growing to include more jewellery timepieces, each made with top jeweller’s materials like gold, diamonds and ornamental stones. This year, the La D de Dior Satine comes in a new 36mm size, fitted with a Milanese mesh bracelet that resembles the shiny suppleness of a small silk ribbon. W dior.com
