There are some things a woman just has to have in her closet. A good pair of jeans, a little black dress, the perfect pumps. There are also accessories she can’t live without, and we believe a luxury timepiece (or three) should be among the watches every woman should own.
When it comes to a watch, you should have a watch that’s versatile enough to take you from work-day to date-night. But, you should also have a cocktail or dress watch for those special occasions, as well as something that’s just plain fun. Here, we’ve listed the three kinds of watches we think every woman should own, as well as our favorite Rolex models that fit the criteria.
An Everyday Two-Toned Watch: The Classic DateJust
A two-toned watch is a must-have for any woman’s wardrobe. The gold and stainless look can accompany dressier occasions or add a touch of elegance to a casual jeans and t-shirt type outfit. When it comes to a versatile two-toned look, we suggest pairing it with a timeless classic like a DateJust as it will last you a lifetime and never go out of style.
We love this Ladies DateJust ref. 279163 with an Oyster case. This stainless steel and 18k yellow gold watch with a smooth bezel is going to stand the test of time and fashion for sure, as will the sleek Oyster bracelet and sturdy Oysterclasp that makes it perfect for daily wear. Although, if you do want to go for a bit of a dressier look, you could also go for a Jubilee bracelet.
The specs on this timepiece aren’t too shabby, either. It’s a self-winding calibre 2236 mechanical movement, features a date wheel, Quickset — it’s also fitted with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, screw-down case back and winding crown as well as a Twinlock double waterproofness system.
A Diamond Encrusted Watch: The Signature Dress Watch, the Lady Pearlmaster
Rolex encrusted diamonds on many of their watches, adding a touch of tasteful bling. But if you’re looking for a dressy, diamond-clad watch, look no further than their Lady Pearlmaster. This one here is a shiny, 18k yellow gold Lady Pearlmaster ref. 69298. Not only is the bezel outlined with 32 diamonds, but each of 10 of hour markers are, too.
But just because this watch is made out of precious metals and stones doesn’t mean it’s not durable — it’s actually outfitted with a 29mm waterproof case and crown topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Alongside an automatic 2235 movement, the watch also features a Cyclops lens, yellow-gold hands, and a bracelet that’s unique to the Pearlmaster with five-piece links that are ever-so rounded to fit perfectly on the wrist.
We love this gold model pictured here, but gold isn’t everyone’s color. The white gold version of this watch looks just as striking for those that prefer it.
An Everose Watch: The Iconic and Imposing Ladies President
A pink gold watch is unique, special and eye catching, and a perfect example of one of the ideal watches every woman should own. And if you’re going to splurge on one of these for yourself, you should choose a Ladies President. This watch commands a room with its stately and elegant frame and face, making it the perfect backdrop to the brilliant pink coloring of an Everose Rolex.
This dainty 26mm Ladies Everose President ref. 179175 is made of 18k Everose gold and features matching Everose gold Roman hour markers on top of a this beautiful pink face. The look is striking enough to wear on a night out and fun and approachable enough to wear every day — although, we guarantee this stellar watch is going to steal passing glances.
Alongside looking incredible, this watch is outfitted with an automatic, self-winding 2235 movement, a Quickset date, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, waterproof screw-down crown.
