Watch Insider’s Top Ladies’ Watches: Are These the Best Ladies’ Watches of the Year?


Hermès Arceau Le Temps Suspendu

If the lady wearing this watch wants to feel “off the clock” for a while, she only needs to push the button at 2 o’clock. The clever, proprietary mechanism will then move the two hands to a neutral, timeless position at 12 o’clock, while the movement continues to function normally.  When she needs to check the time, she simply pushes the button again and, as if by magic, the two hands return to their correct position to show the actual time.

Hublot Big Bang Carbon Bezel Baguette Blue Sapphires

A very sporty watch in a carbon case decorated with blue sapphires, this one is the antidote to a classical and old-fashioned dress watch. This Hublot makes a powerful statement on the wrist, underlining the distinguished taste of the woman showcasing it. The watch is powered by an automatic chronograph caliber from ETA.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duoface

Another timepiece that also could be a men’s watch, but here again, I believe it looks better on a women’s wrist. With its two dials the Reverso not only changes its look, but also offers a second zone-time indication for a globetrotter. The watch contains an in-house hand wound caliber.

Omega Ladymatic

This is Omega‘s real first ladies’ watch; previously, the brand just reconfigured its existing men’s watches into women’s versions. In my eyes a very good-looking and reliable timepiece equipped with an in-house automatic caliber.

Panerai Radiomir 1940 Oro Rosso 42 mm

This is another very powerful “statement” watch for a woman. Panerai reduced the case size of the existing men’s model to 42 mm and outfitted it with its hand-wound caliber P.999. And the red gold Radiomir case looks just gorgeous.

  1. My wife is a passionate watch collector and likes none of these. She’s always frustrated that women’s watches are usually filled with jewels and “bling”, and continues to wish that manufacturers would produce smaller versions of men’s time pieces. There tends to be MUCH more variety in men’s watches. Guess she’ll just need to keep dreaming. :-(

  6. A very good collection of watches have been shared in this blog. I really loved it. I would love to have this Omega watch looking very attractive however I have been a great fan of Rolex watches so far.

    Thank you for sharing such a nice blog.

  7. The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Automatic is a lovely watch but surely there must be some “best watches” for women—meaning ones that look good, give accurate time keeping and last the whole of your life—for less than NZ$44,544? There MUST be watches in the NZ500-1,000 price range that qualify! I’m afraid I wear a Pulsar 1987 digital quartz (big square thing for men). I inherited it. Well, my husband did.

  8. Choosing the most suitable watches for any occasion is a good idea in the present time. A watch can tell lots of things about a person and make a great statement on the character, fashion knowledge, work status. Men prefer a watch for usefulness and to make an impression.

  10. Cool, finally SOME watches without all the bling and a decent size so that those people who are long sighted do not need reading glasses to see the time! Quartz watches which take up a majority of the women’s market are an absolute insult given their rediculous prices for a quartz movement.
    I wear Tag Monaco as my dress watch due to its leather strap and unique design.
    I wear Rolex Explorer mens 36mm as daily wear, just got in before they upgraded the size of the watch, which has been met with criticism for varying reasons.
    No Franck Muller?! I am very surprised by that…

    Yes dear Alexander, in my eyes the most amazing womens’watch today is the Jaeger Lecoultre Ivy Minute Repeater. Not only is it a feast to the eyes, it is also an horological masterpiece, with a magnificent sounding minute repeater, a complication rarely produced for women.

  12. Surprised not to see any Cartier like the Cartier Crash? Nice to see the Panerai and the A Lange. No Patek was worthy?

    • Crash is on page 2!! Different yes, attractive – not to me or my wife but each to their own

  13. I always believed that Vacheron was the best. Indeed some 10 years ago I bought for my wife the asymmetrical yellow gold hand-wound but last week Vacheron Greece asked me 1.500 € !!!!!!!! to change the hair spring. Their justification was that, as per Vacheron’s new policy they have to send the watch in their factory in Switzerland to be repaired.!!! Great watches but ridiculous service. So hands down to all companies that don’t respect the money we pay them.

    It is an amazing collection! It is very difficult to choose, but my preference is for the JLC Grand Reverso Duoface, VC Patrimony Lady and Glashütte Original Pavonina.

  20. I think you missed Patek Calatrava model 7119. Although many if your picks are very beautiful Calatrava definitely deserves its place on the list

  22. Have a look at Raymond Weil Freelancer Lady Sunshine watch. Although looks are entirely a matter of personal judgement, I believe it is more beautiful than any of the listed watches here…

  23. Top of the range like Patek’s 2013 new model 7121 and 7134 are not on your list!

  24. Good collection, i’d include at least two watches from Jaquet Droz, certainly rose gold from “The Lady 8” collection and the white one from Petite Heure Minute Relief season.

    Reply
  25. What about the Patek in rose gold with breguet style numerals on caramel leather strap?

    Reply
  26. Most of the ladies watches were very nice,but quartz movements don’t belong In fine watches In my view. Why didn’t you put a Patek In your collection of women’s watches?
