In 2021, Mother's Day has different connotations. It could be a child celebrating their mother, or someone appreciating and cherishing a maternal presence in their life or anyone just taking this day as an opportunity to treat themselves. There is no limit to the 'way' the day is to be celebrated now. So this Mother's Day, we bring you a flurry of timepieces that we think are suitable for every kind of celebration you are planning to have.
For the mom who likes jewellery: Chopard Happy Diamonds Joallerie
Elegant, unique and beautiful, the Chopard Happy Diamonds Joallerie is a timepiece featuring an enchanting cascade of diamonds. Deeply inspired by Chopard's joie de vivre spirit, from a distance the watch looks beautiful and elegant, and on a closer glance you can notice its 'naughty' nature. How? The timepiece houses 15 dancing diamonds that are swirling around the Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial playing a nifty game of hide-and-seek. This peek-a-boo is possible via the gallery placed between 3 and 9 o' clock. This allows the diamonds to temporarily be hidden out of sight on the dial.
Set at 39mm, the 18K red gold case of the Happy Diamonds Joaillerie is presented on a grey brushed canvas strap that matches the colour of the Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial.
The timepiece is a Chopard Boutique exclusive.
For the mom who likes a classic touch: Rolex Lady DateJust

This is further enhanced with the presence of an elegant silver dial and an Oyster bracelet.
Apart from the design codes of the watch that echo the immense value a Rolex watch demands, the timepiece also stays true to the brand's promise of technical superiority.
