When it comes to watches, there are more options for men. This because other than cufflinks and signet rings we don’t get many opportunities to show off. I write a lot about the luxury watch market and what will appeal to men, but in this article, we will showcase what is hot in the women’s watch market right now. It is a new year and it’s the perfect time for the ladies to buy themselves something nice.
Rolex Daytona – Everrose:
Initial made as a men’s watch; this very slightly pink watch has proven to be very popular with female celebrities. It has graced the wrists of Sofia Vergara, Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton, Ellen Degeneres, Hayden Panettiere, Kris Jenner, and Jessica Simpson. As you well know, the Daytona is sporty, energetic and is crafted from 18ct Everrose gold. It is instantly recognisable, and at the price point of $25,000- $32,000, it is on the higher end of this list.
If you like the large male sized watch on a smaller wrist, this is an excellent example.
While I see the appeal in a female celebrity or self-made woman showing off their new Rolex to the boys, I also think they are likely missing out on the chance of having some real jewellery on their wrist. Many watches for woman are less like watches and more like an artwork of gold, diamonds and other precious stones.
Personally, some of my favourite creations are from the French jewellery designers Boucheron. They were founded in 1858, and to my mind have produced some of the most elegant jewellery of the Victorian era. They are still creating masterpieces of gold and have many different watches that cover the different periods they have been trading.
The Reflet to my eye is an excellent example of the art deco jewellery and is made with stainless steel and a cabochon (rounded) sapphire. The first one was released in 1947 and was produced until 2017. At a much more affordable £2,000 – £5,000 this is a luxury watch that is aimed at not only movie stars.
In the field of female watches, some great and very collectible pieces come out of the beautiful jewellery houses rather than exclusive watchmaking companies. As mentioned it is one thing to have a fine men’s watch and show they can be worn and indeed bought by all, yet I think so of the pieces made by the makers of female jewellery are incredible.
The serpenti tubogas watch (ref 101191) is stainless steel case or gold bracelet, with a silver face. It can be bought brand new from the website of the maker £6,800 or second hand at a much more reasonable £4,500 – $5,000.
