Celebrate Mom with the Perfect Timepiece for Her
It’s that time of year again. The day has come to honor the most deserving yet under-appreciated women in our lives: our moms. Mothers spend most of their lives putting everyone else’s needs before their own. Instead of buying something for herself, mom puts dinner on the table and gets her kids’ school supplies. Mom rarely treats herself to something new, especially something superfluous. That’s why she deserves to be spoiled on Mother’s Day.
A watch is a gift that’s equal parts practical and fun. It’s something mom can use and enjoy every day and even pass on to her kids down the road. However, a watch is also a surefire way to make mom feel special. What woman doesn’t love a new accessory to incorporate into her wardrobe? No matter your budget or your mom’s unique style, we can help you find the right watch for her. Here, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite models from our inventory. Each of these would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Mom doesn’t have to be a pro-sailor to appreciate the Rolex Yacht-Master. If she simply enjoys a day at the beach, she’ll adore the nautical aesthetic and functionality of this model. The Yacht-Master is a relatively new addition to the Rolex catalog, first debuting in 1992. Two years later, the brand added a ladies’ version to the collection. However, it wasn’t until 2005 that Rolex introduced the stainless steel and 18-karat yellow gold variation we see here. At the end of the day, you really can’t go wrong with a Rolex. The two-tone colorway is versatile enough to compliment other jewelry mom has in her collection. Though the Yacht-Master is somewhat sporty, it can easily be dressed up or down for any occasion.
Patek Philippe Twenty-4
Striking, sophisticated, stylish – if these words describe your mom, she’ll love the Patek Philippe Twenty-4. When the brand first unveiled the collection in 1999, it was a remarkably unique addition to their catalog. The modern design is a bit of a departure from Patek Philippe’s typical, tradition aesthetic. However, the Twenty-4 quickly became the brand’s premier ladies’ line. The collection takes a contemporary approach to classic Art Deco principles with women leading active lifestyles in mind. The Twenty-4 was Patek Philippe’s first ladies’ model offered in stainless steel, giving it a subtle sporty touch. However, as we see with this model, the diamond accents give it an equally elegant and feminine appeal.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Gran Sport Reverso
Your mom is an icon, and she deserves a watch that’s equally iconic on her wrist. Enter the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. The model and the brand have become synonymous since the model debuted back in 1931. The Gran Sport Reverso is a newer take on the classic Reverso, launching just a couple of decades ago in 1998. Jaeger-LeCoultre first designed the original model for polo players who needed to protect their watches on the field. However, the initial design had a distinctly dressy appeal despite being purpose-built for sport. As the name suggests, the Gran Sport variation revives the sporty inspiration behind the collection. Still, the modest 28mm case is perfectly slim for mom’s wrist.
Almost every woman knows the Cartier name and associates it with indulgence and luxury. However, mom doesn’t have to be ultra-girly to enjoy a Cartier timepiece. The Roadster is the perfect example of the brand’s range of offerings. Its design draws inspiration from the curves of the sport and race cars of the 1950’s. Though it’s a racing model, its tonneau-shaped case is distinctly softer than Cartier’s other square and rectangular models. Ultimately, the Roadster strives the perfect balance of sportiness and femininity, making it versatile enough for any mom.
Hublot Classic Fusion
For a mom who’s daring and bold, look no further than the Hublot Classic Fusion. The design draws inspiration from the brand’s iconic Big Bang. However, the Classic Fusion is a bit more refined, with a slimmer profile and a cleaner dial layout. Still, it incorporates a number of Hublot’s trademark elements, like the one-of-a-kind porthole-shaped case and pronounced hour markers. Despite its name, the Classic Fusion is quite modern. This variation features a unique matte black textured dial, which pops against the 18-karat rose gold bezel, hands, and indices. For a sporty touch, the model we see here is finished off with a black rubber strap.
Omega Speedmaster Date
Mom is an indispensable part of your family’s history. The same is true for the Speedmaster in the history of Omega. The model was the first watch to embark on the surface of the moon on the wrist of Buzz Aldrin. From that moment forward, it solidified Omega’s partnership with NASA and the space program, one that continues today. On top of its historical significance, the Speedmaster has an impeccably timeless design. It features a classic round case, clean lines, and overall sleek appearance that looks smart on the wrist. Mom is sure to appreciate this model for its heritage and its stylish charm.
TAG Heuer Monaco
Each mom is one-of-a-kind and worthy of a watch that’s just as special as she is. When TAG Heuer released the Monaco in 1969, it broke the mold. The model is a key part of the brand’s history in a couple respects. First, the racing watch is a symbol of TAG Heuer’s longstanding presence in the sport. In addition, the Monaco was the world’s first waterproof automatic chronograph with a square case. This particular iteration features a stunning 18-karat yellow gold construction paired with a warm, brown leather strap. If you’re looking for an alternative to a classic round watch for your mom, the Monaco is an excellent option.
