The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame. The Champs-Elysées? Versailles? Ask anyone coming to Paris what they would like to see, and most will name these world-famous sites. But if that person is a watch collector, or a person looking for a very special piece of jewelry, chances are that Place Vendôme will also be on - and maybe even at the top of - that list.

A constant presence in Piaget’s collection of jewels and jewelry watches, the rose is the symbol that this house values the most. They cast it in gold, decorate it with diamonds, engrave it on mother-of-pearl dials, carve it in precious stones or inlay it in marquetry – rarely will you come across so many rare artistic techniques put to the service of one obsession: the enthusiastic love for the Yves Piaget Rose.

When it comes to elegance in sports watches, the Overseas collection from Vacheron Constantin stands out. With clean and precise lines inspired by historical models, the Overseas is the go-to choice for both ladies and gentlemen collectors. Easily recognizable from afar for those in the know, it still remains fairly neutral for the large masses accustomed to more mainstream brands and models. This year, the Grande Maison has released two new, more delicate sizes: a 34.5mm version, available in steel and gold with a blue dial, and a gem-set 35mm version available in a pink gold case with a blue dial, and in a steel case with a pink dial.
