As Chinese New Year looms nearer and nearer, we tend to buy new things be it new clothes, new bags, and even new lingerie. So why not add a watch to it? To help you out, we’ve curated a handful of timepieces that are new to the market, just in time for Chinese New Year.

In true spirit of the festive season, we’ve got some sparkly red pieces, and even one that pays ode to the Year of the Dog. But fret not, if man’s best friend isn’t something you want to see on your watch, we’ve got you covered too, with watches from as low as S$103, to as high as S$20,600.

 

Chanel Boy·Friend Rubis, price unavailable

This timepiece is opulent right down to the little details. The red alligator strap (which has 42 brilliant-cut diamonds) leads to an 18k white gold case and bezel that has 38 baguette-cut rubies encased within. Above the dial, there are an astonishing 382 brilliant-cut diamonds. The crown itself? 18k white gold, laid with 7 brilliant-cut diamonds. 

We told you, it’s absolutely lush, and dons the ideal shade for Chinese New Year – maroon.

Available at Chanel boutiques.

LIP Henriette Classic, price unavailable.

Feminine and vintage with its old charm. What we love about this LIP watch is its simple elegance – from the classic brown genuine leather strap that almost has a weathered look, to the golden indexes that have a retro sheen to it. On the silver dial, gold numerals and hands keep things minimal. If you have a slender hand, rest assured that this timepiece will compliment and enhance your overall look.

Best part is, you don't just have to wear it for Chinese New Year. It'll go with every other day of 2018!

Available at all LIP retailers.

 

Swatch Fleurie, S$103

Bring the festive spirit to your wrist with this Swatch watch that’s filled with dainty pink blossoms. The strap, which is semi-transparent, also has a red detail that carries on to the seconds hand on the dial. It’s also decked in dazzling sparkles, and silver hands to match. The Swatch Fleurie is the perfect, feminine watch for the season, if you ask us.

Available at Swatch stores and online.

 

Swatch L’Inattendue, S$103

Shake things up a bit with this timepiece that has a jewellery buckle, four  jewels and little blue Swatch Sparkles on the dial to distinguish the hours. The silver-tone dial sits in a transparent case, while the strap is made of stainless steel, that can be adjusted to fit you perfectly. If one accessory is all you’re looking for, then the L’Innatendue is your match. 

Just pair it with a little diamond ring for a sprinkle on top.

Available at Swatch stores and online

 

Swatch Woof, S$118

For the puppy-lovers out there, Swiss watchmaker Swatch has released a timepiece that has a festive puppy printed on the golden dial. For a pup (get it?) of colour, golden and red waves are plastered all over the white silicone strap. It paints an absolutely perfect picture, especially with the dial’s red and white indexes to match.

The watch operates on a quartz movement.

Available at Swatch stores and online.
