Last week, I attended a gorgeous launch on Ghost II – a brand new, beautiful luxury super yacht owned by Bell Partners founder and CEO Anthony Bell. The Vacheron Constantin launch was the first ever event held on the yacht so I felt quite special to be invited and enjoy a beautiful night cruising around Sydney Harbour.
The night was all about launching the iconic Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection, a range of watches which can impressively tell the time in 37 different time zones. Watch aficionados would have been in heaven, as all the guests were able to try on some of the luxury timepieces on display. The watches ranged from simple and sleek to some that were thoroughly luxe and were encrusted with diamonds. It was definitely a lot of fun being able to play with them.
The launch was a small gathering of 50 people and was a mixture of media, fashion personalities and celebrities such as Montana Cox and Cheyenne Tozzi. It was a special experience being able to watch the sunset as we sailed along the harbour and definitely a lovely way to spend an evening.

Watches have always been a key accessory for me and I often don’t leave the house without one. I have a collection of watches of different styles; some special ones I’ve been lucky enough to have been gifted from my family to commemorate special milestones and others I’ve collected over the years. I think you can have several different time pieces and they don’t always have to be of the expensive variety. Given my love of watches, I’m thrilled to be an ambassador and give you a sneek peek at my new campaign with Christian Paul watches. I loved working with the brand as I think their range is on-trend and well-made. The new Christian Paul range includes the Luxe Range featuring Swarovski crystal indexes, the on-trend Grid Range and the signature Marble Range, which has received a new-look enamel finish.The hard part was picking a fave! Christian Paul Director Timothy Caruana says of the brand, “Our aim has been to create unique and affordable watches that embody style, simplicity, versatility and above all quality.”
5 watch trends to look out for
Are you in the market for a new watch? Here’s what’s trending
Create your own arm parties
Match your timepieces with something simple like a bangle in a complementary gold or silver – whatever suits your personal style best.
Switch up your straps
Match your timepiece to your outfit. The great thing about Christian Paul watches is that they have interchangeable straps which means that you can have them on high rotation in your wardrobe as they can be worked back with numerous outfits simply by changing the strap.
Marble has always been a popular choice for interiors and its now become a go-to sartorial choice as well.
Experience major gridlock with an on-trend grid pattern on your watch face. The clean lines make this pattern appropriate for both work and play.
Slight embellishments such as crystals are being seen on more watches. Austrian crystals give a watch a luxurious feel but Christian Paul has made this trend more accessible and affordable.
Pared back palette
If you’re looking for longevity you can never go wrong with a watch in a simple colour palette. The Christian Paul pastel peach and white strap colours are great for something a bit more modern while black and tan are great classic colour options.
Christian Paul watches are available at Myer and Glue stores. You can find your nearest store here.
The Grid and Marble Christian Paul watch retails for $199 and the Luxe is $249
