How to Wear a Woman’s Watch

With women’s watches, there are many different ways that one can wear it. Some women are devoted watch enthusiasts and will wear a luxury watch for its historical significance. Other women will wear the watch because it is the trendy style at the time. No matter the reason, women have the chance to wear luxury watches in all different ways.

There are many different types of watches that a woman can wear. Stainless steel watches have a sleek look that would look great with any outfit. Rose gold is a trend that has drastically grown in popularity and more and more women are buying watches of rose gold. While not nearly as popular for women, rubber straps are always an option, especially for the active watch wearer.

Some women are interested in finding the perfect watch and keeping it for the rest of their life. They will wear it with both dress clothes and casual clothes. When choosing which watch to purchase, they look for a brand that has a long and successful history. They also are concerned with quality. If they plan to keep the watch for several decades and are going to wear it every day, it is important that they find a watch that will last. For the woman that wants to wear an understated watch from a watch brand that has a long, successful history in watchmaking, here are a couple watches to wear:

Another trend that is becoming increasingly popular is ladies wearing men’s watches. Typically, a lady’s watch is 42mm or smaller. However, some women are choosing to wear the larger watches because they make more of a statement and can be worn as jewelry. Watch brands are beginning to pick up on the trend that women are being drawn toward larger wrist watches and introducing watches that fit this trend. In the past, a majority of the watches for women were described as “blingy” with diamonds and sparkles all over the case and dial. With many women following this new trend of wearing larger, more sporty and masculine watches, many luxury watch brands are taking note.

One brand that has picked up on this new trend is Hublot. In early 2013, Hublot introduced its Hublot “Big Bang Jeans” line of watches for women. Instead of the typical women’s watch that was covered in crystals, these watches are larger and sturdier. Its diameter is a sturdy 41mm and has an 18kt white gold case.

Several female celebrities are leading the way in this trend. One celebrity who even went so far as to have a brand create her a customized oversized watch is model Heidi Klum. Klum has been spotted wearing a Panerai Radiomir watch that is 40mm in size, which is on the larger side of the typical range for women’s watches.
