7 Diamond-studded Men’s Watches

Diamonds are no longer just a girl's best friend with these glittering masterpieces.

01: Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42 Single Skeleton Tourbillon, with Diamonds

Bling1

A study in contrasts, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur 42  juxtaposes gleaming baguette-cut diamonds and a white gold case with the architectural form of the skeleton flying tourbillon RD505SQ movement. Featuring a star-shaped design, a Celtic cross-shaped tourbillon carriage and a circular-grained finish, the hand-wound movement has a 60-hour power reserve.

02: Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hours

Bling2

On its own, the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hours is enigmatic enough, with hours and minutes hands that appear freely suspended. (In
reality, they are mounted on sapphire crystal discs with toothed rims, and turn like gears.) Making this 42mm white gold watch even more
spectacular is its generous dusting of diamonds: 559 brilliant-cut stones light up its case, dial and buckle.

03: Franck Muller Vanguard

Bling3

Mixing Franck Muller’s classic Curvex case with bold elements like applique relief numerals and raised hands, the Vanguard makes a sporty statement. For those days when you’re feeling more like an aesthete than an athlete, the red gold version set with diamonds adds a touch of refinement to an otherwise rugged timepiece.

04: Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Ultra Thin

Bling42

With its slim form, and refined hands and hour markers, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Ultra Thin looks elegantly understated, even when its face and bezel are decked out with 762 diamonds totalling 3.1 carats. The 40mm pink gold watch is powered by an automatic movement with 43 hours of power reserve.

05: Hublot Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve

A 45mm case, crafted from Hublot’s proprietary King Gold and set with diamonds, provides the perfect show-stopping home for the Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve, which is driven by a manual movement providing a lengthy power reserve of 192 hours.

06: Richard Mille RM 014 Perini Navi Cup

The Richard Mille RM 014 Perini Navi Cup takes its inspiration from the work of the Italian yacht builders, the Perini Navi of Viareggio. The
form of elements such as its tourbillon, crown, barrel bridges and even screws takes design cues from those famed sailing vessels. While not
exactly nautical, its diamond-studded case in white gold brilliantly accentuates the dimensionality of this manual watch.

07:  Breguet’s Marine Tourbillon Ref. 5839

Bling7

Traditional precious watchmaking materials sit alongside high-tech ones in Breguet’s Marine Tourbillon Ref. 5839. Its hand-wound movement features components made from silicon and its tourbillon carriage is crafted from titanium. All this is enclosed in a white gold case dressed up with 186 baguette-cut diamonds totalling a whopping 11.77 carats.
