Must Have Ladies Watches

Patek Philippe Aquanaut

Patek Philippe Ladies Aquanaut

This sporty, yet elegant, watch is perfect for the late summer months. Ladies will be delighted with the pretty colors in the Aquanaut Ladies Collection from Patek Phillippe. The Aquanaut Casual Elegance, launched in 1997, combines technical perfection with uncompromising performance. The design of its original models was inspired by the iconic Nautilus.

The dial features a modern form with a gently rounded octagonal shape and surface structure that reflects the texture of the strap. The screw-down crown provides extra protection on the wrist for active people. And the strap, made of a high-tech composite, is soft, comfortable, resistant and hypoallergenic. Wearing a Patek will show that you know about watches and the good life

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso

Jaeger-LeCoultre Ladies Watches

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is a truly classic, sophisticated and stylish watch. The smart, rectangular watch, with its unique swivel case, was originally conceived as a sports watch to protect the glass dial during polo matches. Today, the Reverso Lady collection offers an almost unlimited combination of style possibilities, including precious metals, diamonds and sizes. One of the biggest appeals of this watch is the extent to which Jaeger-LeCoultre has embraced customization.

Recently, in honor of the Reverso’s 85th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre teamed up with Christian Louboutin, to create exclusive straps “resulting in a brilliantly fanciful collaborative endeavor.” Jaeger-LeCoultre is easily one of the most recognized symbols of luxury, so wearing one at once reflects your status and sophistication.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Ladies Diamond AP

In the luxury sport category, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a fantastic watch that is strong enough to wear daily but elegant enough to wear out-on-the-town. Unveiled in 1972, the Royal Oak collection is recognizable by its stark geometry and stainless steel case, along with its “tapisserie” dial pattern, makes it stand out from the crowd. For ladies, both diamond and smaller versions fit well.

IWC Portofino 37

IWC Portofino for women

The IWC Portofino 37 collection was launched in 2014 for watch lovers who prefer a slightly smaller and more luxurious timepiece. In addition to being sized for more feminine wrists, the watches come with a variety of case materials, complications, straps and dazzling jewels.

When the collection was first launched, IWC did major ad campaigns targeting the female market starring actress Cate Blanchett and supermodel Adriana Lima, highlighting both the smart and sexy side of the Portofino Midsize line. The Portofino 37 has an understated elegance that will appeal to the more sophisticated female customer who appreciates a classical upscale style rather than a temporary fad.

Bulgari Serpenti

Bvlgari Serpenti

Offering the ultimate in opulence is the Bulgari Serpenti — the snake-inspired wraparound-style of a watch and a bracelet. This 70-year-old bracelet style was a favorite of Elizabeth Taylor, and continues to lure A-list celebs both on and off the red carpet. Everyone from Naomi Watts to Anna Dello Russo has been spotted in one of its many iterations, as well as Olivia Palermo featured here.

Nomos Tetra Style

Nomos Glashutte Tetra

Tetra is perhaps the most “feminine” watch in the NOMOS Glashütte collection. The well-designed, delightfully thin and elegant timepiece features clean lines, Bauhaus-inspired numerals and simple layout. It comes in blue, rose, mint and other sherbert-esque colors that appeal to women.


Michele Ladies Watches

Their statements say a lot. “Bold Meets Feminine.” “Styles that Inspire Confidence.” “Make a Statement.” What woman doesn’t want to exude confidence with her style? Michele watches aim to celebrate the women who are fabulous, embrace opportunity and never take themselves too seriously.

Your watch can set the tone for your look and can be transformed day to day depending on how you style it. No matter what inspires you and your style as Summer winds down and Fall approaches, have fun with it and enjoy the fashion and the power of wearing fabulous watches.
