Time for a Little Christmas Treat!
While the Christmas season may feel like it’s all about shopping for others, sometimes you need to treat yourself! A quality timepiece is a lifetime investment that isn’t gone in a moment — like a manicure or a spa day. Finding a watch that speaks to you will lift your mood every morning when you equip yourself for the day and may even become a treasured heirloom to pass down to your children.
From vintage and classic to robust and designer styles, here are some of the top three watch styles for ladies.
Vintage and vintage-inspired timepieces have an inexplicable allure about them that call people back for them time after time. Often a little more delicate and a lot more elaborate, Rolex’s Vintage Cocktail Watches and Van Cleef Arpels’ SIHH are top contenders that offer beauty, elegance, and grace.
Ornate statement pieces that are simply begging to be worn, vintage watches are often characterized by diamonds, braiding, and scalloping on the band, bezel, and case. You’ll also find many intriguing watch faces that feature unique colors and horological or animal themes.
Be warned! True vintage watches will require more care and attention than other watches. They may need to be wound manually and cleaned more carefully. Vintage-inspired watches will give you the look you want without the intense maintenance.
Women’s watches don’t always have to be petite, delicate, and full of diamonds. Sometimes your power suit needs a little extra boost with a more robust watch. There’s no need to search in the men’s aisle to find a watch more suited to your look! The women’s Rolex President is one particular style that provides raw energy without a heavy, masculine feel. Whether you prefer 18k gold or the Signature Everose gold, you’ll get top quality automatic movement, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, quickset date, and waterproof screw-down crown.
Many of these watches also offer two toned metal bands or rose gold for those who wish to walk the line between masculine and feminine.
When you think of modern style jewelry, you’re thinking avant-garde shapes, precarious angles, and awe-inspiring precision — and you’re absolutely right! If out of the box is what you’re looking for, square watch faces, bold color wraparound bands, and eye bending cutouts for featuring movements are a good place to start! Nomos Glashütte, Corum, and Rolex are all venerable names that consistently debut new and original designs that keep you guessing.
From the Golden Bridge Round 39mm to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31, you’re always getting a spectacle every time you look at your wrist!
