One-of-a-kind watches with pretty pearlescent dials

The kind of watches to own at least once in a lifetime


For something that’s truly one of a kind, pick a timepiece with a mother-of-pearl face – the unique iridescence and natural patterns of the shell ensure that no two will ever be the same.

Limited to 28 numbered pieces, Breguet’s Classique Dame 9065 has a Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial enhanced by 88 brilliant-cut diamonds on the rose gold bezel.

Launched in 1952, Omega’s iconic Constellation has been given a facelift with the elegant stainless steel and yellow gold 29mm Constellation Manhattan Co-Axial Master Chronometer ($16,500).

Chopard’s 18K white gold Happy Sport Oval features five sapphires and two dancing diamonds around the textured mother-of-pearl dial with a guilloche centre.

Vintage lovers will love Longines’ Legend Diver watch ($3,200), which pays tribute to its 1960s 42mm Super Compressor. The white leather strap complements the soft glow of the mother-of-pearl dial.

Tag Heuer’s Carrera Lady has a 36mm case that’s larger
than the average ones for women, but it’s ideal for showing off its
mother-of-pearl dial with diamonds on the bezel.
