AUDEMARS PIGUET 38MM ROYAL OAK SELF-WINDING CHRONOGRAPH This year, Audemars Piguet took the concept of offering daring colors seriously, and the new 38mm Royal Oak Self-winding Chronograph with striking purple dial is the outstanding result. The multilayer dial boasts the brands’ beloved Grande Tapisserie pattern with smooth and shiny chronograph subsidiary dials in matching hues. The watch is crafted in solid 18-karat pink gold and is set with 32 baguette-cut amethysts — a first for the brand. The hands and markers are offered in matching gold tones. The watch is powered by the brand’s self-winding Caliber 2385 movement with chronograph counters, hours, minutes and small seconds, as well as date indication. Finished with an 18-karat pink gold bracelet, the watch is water resistant to around 164 ft. $81,900, audemarspiguet.com

OMEGA SPEEDMASTER This year Omega went full steam ahead when it came to adding all-gold watches to the 38mm Speedmaster chronograph watches. The newest version is set on a taupe-hued leather strap and crafted in the brand’s proprietary 18-karat Sedna™ gold. The silvery dial features contrasting brown-colored subsidiary dials for the chronograph counters. A date window at 6 o’clock brings another element of function to the watch, as does the tachymeter scale for measuring distance. The watch is powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Caliber 3330 automatic movement. $16,500, omegawatches.com

PATEK PHILIPPE 7150/250R Known for its complications, Patek Philippe creates subdued elegance with this 38mm 18-karat rose gold Reference 7150/250R ladies’ chronograph. In addition to harmoniously balanced subsidiary dials on the main face, the chronograph watch also offers a pulsimeter for timing one’s pulse. Powered by the manually wound mechanical caliber CH 29-535 movement, the watch exudes an updated vintage appeal thanks to the cambered sapphire box crystal and the silvery opaline dial. It is set with a total of 99 diamonds on the bezel and prongs. $89,890, patek.com
