A classic timepiece is essential for the working woman. It’s an accessory that not only tells the time (so you’ll always be punctual), but also shows off your discerning style.

Before you take the plunge and splurge on such a watch though, these are the three factors you should keep a lookout for: one, uncomplicated design; two, understated elegance; and three, the versatility to go with anything you’re wearing. Chopard’s new Alpine Eagle collection checks all of the above.

Featuring a self-winding mechanical movement, this new line of timepieces is available in two sizes, 36mm and 41mm.

The 36mm runs on the Chopard calibre 09.01-C self-winding mechanical movement and has a 42-hour power reserve. It is available in Chopard’s Lucent steel, rose gold and Lucent steel + rose gold, with blue, grey, white or grey mother-of-pearl dials.

If you prefer a bigger watch face, the 41mm would be a perfect match. It runs on the Chopard calibre 01.01-C a self-winding mechanical movement with a 60-hour power reserve. Its Lucent steel body is available with blue and grey dials, while its Lucent steel + rose gold body is available only with a grey dial.

Chopard’s Alpine Eagle collection is available at #01-03 Ngee Ann City and #B1-107/107A Marina Bay Sands. Prices start from $13,500.
