Luxury watches every woman should own

The importance of timekeeping has been widely publicized for decades- you’ve heard the sayings, ‘time is of the essence’ and 'time is money’. But from the workplace to evenings out on the town, watches are becoming less of an essential way to keep track of the time and more of an essential fashion accessory. 

Just like your little black dress and perfectly fitting jeans, watches can add to your personality, dress up an outfit, or even show how current you are on the latest celebrity fashion trends.

Whether you are using a watch in the old-school way of keeping time or looking to update your accessory collection with an elegant and sophisticated timepiece, more and more brands are pooling their vast resources into their luxury women's watch lines. The subsequent vast choices of watches seem endless and trying to navigate through all the options can be overwhelming.

While household name brands such as Rolex, Cartier, and Chanel have monopolized this luxury market, it’s important to know  before you decide on a brand, you need to first decide on what type of luxury watch to invest in.

Three types of luxury watches every woman should own.  

An everyday two-toned watch

Ideal for the workplace, this luxury watch is the perfect addition to any woman’s wardrobe. When you are purchasing a two-toned watch, you’re looking for the perfect blend of gold and stainless metals. This type of watch will dress up any day-time outfit while also elegantly complementing your evening looks. As you are thinking about this jewellery investment, you’ll feel secure to know that many are made from scratch-resistant materials. When you’re investing in an everyday watch, you’ll want to hold off on opting for anything too trendy, glitzy, or oversized – you want something that will stand the test of time. Also, make sure your everyday watch fits properly so it’s not dangling down and banging on your keyboard at work. A general rule of thumb is to ensure your watch doesn’t slide more than an inch up or down your wrist.

A diamond-encrusted watch for nights out

This luxury watch will be fancier than your everyday two-toned watch while providing a tasteful hint of glamour. Unlike extremely luxe watches that you would only bring out for an event once or twice a year, this one you’ll bring out for a wedding, date night, cocktail party, or just a Saturday night out with the girls. When you choose a luxury watch that is encrusted with diamonds, you are turning your watch into a statement jewellery piece that will become the focal point of any outfit with its tasteful touch of sparkle. A piece like this will cost you money, but don’t be alarmed. You’re often still investing in a durable piece that is not only made from scratch-resistant precious stones and metal but also is waterproof. When you’re deciding on your investment, you can opt for gold or even white gold depending on your preferences - both will be a head-turning option.

A day-in and day-out rose gold watch

If you already have an everyday and a night out watch, consider adding a luxury option for the in-between occasions. A rose gold timepiece will still command the attention of the room with its elegance, but it will be a daintier option to round out any outfit. The pink undertone can stand up to a date night but is still approachable for everyday wear, so you never have to swap out your watch based on your plans. Like other luxury watches, this also often comes in scratch-resistant crystals and is waterproof. If you want to make the dainty pink hue stand out even more, consider selecting a grander frame.
