Jaeger LeCoultre
When I asked retailers if they saw anything special at the Swiss watch shows, Jaeger LeCoultre came up again and again. With watches like this one, it's easy to see why.

Jaeger has reinvented the chronograph with this "Duometre a Chronographe," the first piece in the new Duometre collection. The watch's styling and technical features place it in the most exclusive echelons of watchmaking fine art. The micro-mechanical revolution houses a new-generation Calibre 380. Two independent mechanisms respectively serve to drive the time display and an additional function, while a single, shared, regulating organ ensures chronometer-worthy operating precision.

Suggested retail price is $35,000.

"Infinity" earrings in 18-karat red gold with diamonds feature never-ending, eye-catching circles.

I can't wait to see which A-lister will wear these red-carpet-worthy earrings. Dubbed "The Iceman" by Cedric the Entertainer, Aire has long adorned the stars with his exquisite jewelry. But, unlike other designers, Aire remains approachable and friendly despite his celebrity entourage. A native of Benin, West Africa, Aire grew up around gemstones and gold, and founded his business in Los Angeles in 1996.

Suggested retail price is $4,500.
