Watchmakers Branch Out into Matching Jewelry

Women in possession of a dazzling watch have long had trouble figuring out what jewelry to wear with it. Now there's an easy answer: pieces designed by the watchmakers themselves. Audemars Piguet has reinterpreted the design of its popular Lady Royal Oak watch—an octagon dial with diamond screws—as a ring, bracelet and pendant in a sporty new collection that uses rubber in shades of white, black and chocolate brown (audemarspiguet.com). Franck Muller, who's known for his Crazy Hours Color Dreams dial concept featuring sharp hues and out-of-sequence numbers, remains true to form with a funky, feminine ring collection that incorporates diamonds crafted into backward and upside-down numbers. The line has expanded to include bands for men as well as women (from $2,500; franckmuller.ch).

To complement his bold but simple watch with hearts on its face, Roger Dubuis has created the My Heart diamond line, which includes a pendant and a chunky, heart-shaped ring that looks uncomfortable, but fits on a tilt, smooth and snug (from $2,700; rogerdubuis.com). Omega's enchanting jewelry portfolio features earrings, a seahorse charm and cufflinks that flaunt the brand's trademarks, including its unmistakable Greek alphabet logo, a modern interpretation of the signature claws and claps of the constellation watches, and the wave elements reminiscent of the Seamaster watch collection. Now there's no excuse not to accessorize a great timepiece (omegawatches.com).
