Beautiful and the Bold: Popular Women Watches


Do you remember yesterday's watches for women, the reduced versions of men's watches, or the tiny dress watches for women who wait forever for a great night? They are history! Today's women's watches have become fashionable accessories to be noticed, with large and striking dials, brightness in abundance and more color than a box of king-size crayons.

The increasing size of women's watches

When it comes to women's watches, petite and feminine watches are no longer almost synonymous. The sizes of the boxes are getting bigger, and what used to be a relatively standard diameter of about 24 millimeters is now quite small. Some styles of women are truly gigantic, 40 millimeters in diameter or more. Why this tendency towards oversizing? One of the reasons is men's watches. As they grew to humungous dimensions, watches for fashionable women have also increased in size. Another reason is the recent popularity of chronograph watches for women, which required dials of considerable size for accommodating the chronograph subdials. And the main reason for the new interest in large watches for women: large faces have room for striking numbers, decorative spheres, elegant hands and all kinds of striking indicators, all the things that make it worthwhile to wear a watch.

Color and women's watches

While it is true that pink is considered the color for girls and women, it appears to be blue, purple, green, red and yellow. All are appearing these days in women's watches. In addition to the pastel and primary vibrant colors, there is also a more serious palette of grays (pearls, slate, charcoal) and browns (coffee, copper, and bronze) for occasions that require some gravitas. And, yes, the orange is still hot. If you cannot find a woman's watch these days to go with every outfit in your closet, you're just not trying. The dominant aspects are the watch straps and the quadrants that combine, the latter often of nacre, dyed in any color you can imagine. Also popular are colored gems, especially sapphires, in all their different shades: blue, yellow, pink, and orange.

New wild forms for women watches

We bet you've never seen so many unusual shapes like those offered by today's watchmakers. One of the biggest trends in women's watches is non-round styles. It is both a new and an old development: when wristwatches appeared on the scene in the early 1900s, female models adopted a variety of wild forms before settling into the more serious rounds and rectangles of later decades. They go well with crosses (Roger Dubuis, Locman), flower shapes (from Citizen, among others), egg shape (Breguet), semicircles (Jean d'Eve) and ovals, long rectangles curved to fit the wrist (UK). Arpels &  Van Cleef even has a clock shaped like the Alhambra in Spain. The much famed east-west watches, which are wider than tall, are gaining momentum in fashion. They are now available in oval, rectangular and barrel shapes, with more variations on the road.
The lesson is clear: when you are adding to your wardrobe, do not forget the clocks. Today, many manufacturers of mechanical watches have launched initiatives to conquer women. They are offering a lot of new watch models for women: not simple watches, garden mechanics, as their grandmother used to, but very elegant, which incorporate a full range of functions and special features: power reserve Indicators, chronographs, full calendars, and even tourbillons.
