When people think of luxury watches, they tend to focus on men’s luxury watches. But women are also drawn to luxury watches, and although many women don men’s watches today, there are luxury watches that cater exclusively to women. Women’s luxury watches have complications, can have sparkle, can be more petite, and are just as versatile as a man’s watch.
Jonathan’s Watch Buyer is an equal opportunity luxury watch buyer and seller. We buy and sell our watches for both men and women, and have both men and women buy and proudly wear our pre-owned luxury watches, but today let’s focus on the women’s luxury watch market and if you are looking to exclusively buy a women’s watch what to look for.
Ladies, size matters when it comes to women’s luxury watches. The size of the case of a watch will determine how comfortable it is, as well as how it looks on your wrist. If it’s too big, it will be uncomfortable and bulky, if it’s too small it might not be easy to read and get lost on your body.
In general, women’s luxury watches range in size from under 34mm to 38mm. That’s not to say that women can’t or won’t wear watches that have larger faces, because many women do, but men usually won’t choose a watch that is under 38mm. Case size is a personal preference and never a general rule, so choose what YOU like and are comfortable wearing.
Dress to Impress
In the old days, women’s luxury watches were all about dress to impress. Today, you can find dressy, sporty, minimalist, highly complicated, and more. An important part of searching for your next watch is deciding on what kind of style you prefer. Think about how it will fit into your lifestyle, how often you will be wearing it and to where; and then check out the myriad of options. Here are some things to consider.
- Case Material – Yellow, rose, or white gold, stainless steel, ceramic
- Case Shape – Round, square, Tourneau, rectangle, asymmetrical, cushion, avant-garde
- Dial – Roman numerals, colored dial, diamond markers, date window, complications
- Bezel – Fluted, plain, diamond, gemstone, rotating, fixed
- Strap – Bracelet or leather, the color of the strap (two-tone, stainless, leather, nylon)
