Valentine’s Day 2021

Cupid’s hour

A watch for the lovers’ holiday? Great idea. I have selected three models for their originality and excellency.

Forget the private reservation for Valentine’s Day, now impossible in the wake of the pandemic. But no matter: many options are still available for the 14th! A rose (a red one, of course), a bottle of rosé wine (the Château Rollan de By is great) or of champagne (the Joyau de France rosé vintage 2007 by Boizel) are sweet gifts – but better yet, a watch as symbol of eternal love.

P(E/A)NSE-MOI, Swatch Valentine’s Day 2021 special, intends to put plasters in the whole house!

The famous Swiss brand always designs a special edition for Valentine’s Day with an original packaging. This year it comes in a first-aid box for broken hearts! Inside, “post-it” plasters to put everywhere and a watch of the purest Swatch style: flashy red. At the back small hearts in the spirit of the event celebrated by this limited edition. Do not ask how many pieces are available: Swatch keeps it confidential…

La Swatch Saint-Valentin 2021 - P(E/A)NSE-MOI - et le packaging en trousse de secours
An original packaging and quirky humour characterize Swatch Valentine’s Day 2021 P(E/A)NSE-MOI edition.

NEW GENT collection, quartz movement, red plastic case of 41 mm, red dial with daydate and heart, silicone bracelet: 95 euros.


Who does not dream of diamonds spinning for their own entertainment whenever the fancy strikes? You dreamt of it… Chopard did it. And what better time than Valentine’s Day to gift – or be gifted – the Happy Heart watch? This is not a limited edition, nor a special Valentine’s Day, but seeing its style and features, it certainly could be. Judge for yourself: its bracelet is red as roses and its steel case carry two hearts among the diamonds freely dancing above the hands at the slightest wrist movement. How? Thanks to Chopard’s master watchmakers who smartly placed two anti-reflective sapphire glasses above the dial. This inventive system resulted in the various “Happy” references (watches and jewellery), which are among the most sought-after collections of this great watchmaker and jeweller.

saint-valentin : Lunette diamants, or rouge, cadran nacre et aiguille en flêche traversant un cœur pour la Blancpain Saint-Valentin 2021
Diamond bezel and indexes, red gold, mother-of-pearl dial and second hand shaped like an arrow piercing a heart… the Blancpain Valentine’s Day 2021 is a beauty of watchmaking and poetry.

Twenty-eight, not one more. This is how many pieces are proposed by Blancpain for this year Valentine’s Day edition. And, it must be said, it is pretty great one. Besides its self-winding manufacture calibre with a silicon balance-spring, perpetual calendar and 4-day power reserve, its romantic look seduces at first glance. Right out of Cupid’s quiver, the second hand piercing a red heart brings a lot to the visual of the watch. A diamond bezel with diamond indexes and a mother-of-pearl dial sparkling brightly completes the romantic picture framed in a red gold case of well-balanced proportions. At the back, another reference to lovers with a gold oscillating weight adorned with a heart.
