In a world where mechanical timekeepers are totally unnecessary (um, iPhone, anyone?), a watch had better make a statement and bring a smile to your face every time you look at it. The RM 07-01 Gem-Set Black Ceramic from Richard Mille checks both of those boxes with a flourish. This ladies’ sports watch is made of matte black ceramic with red gold accents and a sharp-looking diamond set into the crown.
It also has slim rows of diamonds set directly into the ceramic bezel, which, despite the effortless appearance, is something that has never been done before and required a considerable amount of R&D. The RM 07-01 is equal parts elegant and aggressive, and it’s just about the chicest thing you can wear on the tennis court. $176,000;
