History of Ladies Watches
Decades before wristwatches became fashionable, women wore pendant
watches. These were variants of pocket watches and hung from long
chains around the neck. Usually, a woman would tuck the watch into her
waist band or into a small pocket sewn inside the seam of her dress
where the bodice joined the skirt.
In those days, women
were given more freedom than men in choosing different ways of
displaying their timepieces. Apart from the necklace style, they could
also dangle from short chains at their waists, from pin-like brooches
on their blouses, or from earrings and rings.
Today's Ladies Watches
market for fine women's watches is inundated with styles and models
that could make any watch aficionado quiver with excitement. There are
new designs introduced every year, and it becomes quite difficult for
any successful woman to keep just a few pieces.
To build a basic collection, you would need at least one piece for each of the following women's watch classifications: Sports watches,
Dress watches, and Jewelry watches. Naturally, there are name brands
that would have all of these types, but it would be more impressive to
choose from among various watchmakers.
sports watches are a must for the active, modern woman. Whether you're
a rock climber, a diver, a runner, or just one who regularly attends
Pilates classes, it would do you well to keep a chronograph
that is water-resistent and has other essential features such as a
stopwatch and an alarm. Sports watches are usually made of sturdy
materials such as steel, titanium, rubber, and leather. Ladies' sports
watches use thinner straps than men's watches and are considerably
smaller. If you're partial to pastels, keep in mind that these shades
go well with fair complexion. Darker skin shades call for straps or
dials in neutral or very bright colors.
we have the dress watches. Dress watches should be a part of every
woman's wardrobe. These used to mean a thin, classic design in yellow
or white gold, with an elegant bracelet or a delicately tooled leather
strap, but the standards are now more relaxed. As long as the women's
watch you choose doesn't have gross markings, velcro or rubber straps,
or oversized components, most watches should be able to shift between
formal, dressy occasions and casual, everyday wear.
Traditionally designed fine women's watches such as the non-sports models of Omega and Rolex are often the favorites for business or formal events, as are classics such as the Jaeger-Le Coultre Reverso or the Cartier Tank.
finally, jewelry watches – these are pieces that took months, or even
years, to be assembled by master craftsmen. Each stone in this fine
women's watch is carefully chosen and matched for clarity, color, and
flawlessness before being manually set. For a classic and elegant look,
you can opt for a stunning Piaget
Miss Protocole in 18-karat white gold enhanced by a delicate vertical
guilloche pattern. Its masterfully designed wristband can be easily
changed for a new color or an entirely different material.
women's watches have truly evolved from the pocket watches of yore to
the present sleek and svelte fine women's watches which come in all
shapes and styles. Just remember to wear a piece that you know you'll
be comfortable in. If you need to limit yourself to just one watch, get
something that isn't too "extreme" – not too sporty or trendy nor too
jeweled or formal. To make the best statement, your best guide should
be good, old-fashioned common sense.
