Women's watches: armed with style.
They do, of course, tell the time and help regulate a busy social life, but for a long while now women's watches have also been fashion accessories. Whether it's a piece of high jewellery or a more whimsical model, a watch adds the finishing touch to both formal outfits and more relaxed styles.
For some, it has to be leather. Others, however, prefer metal, which is easier to clean. There's a watch to suit everyone in this section. Bracelets and dials are adorned with steel, silver, ceramic, leather, gilded metal and numerous other refined materials. Certain vintage yellow gold models are embellished with fine diamonds, while others are enhanced with bold colours or motifs. As for the movement, there's a choice of automatic or quartz (with batteries), or there's always the traditional hand-wound version.
All the major watchmakers and jewellers are present in this section. There are, of course, creators of luxury watches like Rolex, Cartier and Breitling, who propose models with elegant and timeless lines. Other pieces take their inspiration from haute couture, like the Royal Oak Offshore by the house of Audemars Piguet, combining maximal forms and dazzling tones. Looking for something a little sportier? Omega's robust models are a marriage of performance and aesthetics. The Eyes Swatch and Ice-Watch ranges give a more whimsical feel to a look, while Apple Watches are the ideal companion for all those connected ladies out there.
