It’s already November, which means the holidays are just around the corner. Have you started thinking about the perfect gift for that special woman in your life? If you’re as disorganized as I am, then I’m guessing the answer is no. However, before you go into a full-blown tailspin of panic, we’re here to help with this gift guide. If you didn’t know already, luxury watches make great gifts. They are very personal, will see a lot of use (if chosen correctly), and last a very long time with the proper care. To help you get started, we’ve included several different types and styles to suit a range of budgets and tastes.
Maybe you’re looking for a nice, elegant watch to give your mother. Or perhaps something a little more romantic for your girlfriend or wife. Better yet, maybe it’s a well-earned gift for yourself to celebrate another successful year. Whatever the case, we’ve got some great suggestions for you. Even if you don’t find the perfect watch here, you will at least have some good ideas to start with. There are hundreds of thousands of watches listed on Chrono24, meaning you’ll have no shortage of options once you make up your mind. Let’s get to the guide so you can start shopping!
Alpina Horological Smartwatch
This Horological Smartwatch is a great option for busy women on the go. Despite being a smartwatch, it looks and wears like a classic luxury timepiece, complete with the option of a dazzling diamond-set bezel and dial. There’s a central time display, as well as a subdial at 6 o’clock that combines the date and a 1-100 scale that indicates how close you are to your daily activity goal. This timepiece is truly more than meets the eye. Pair it with the dedicated iOS or Android app to gain access to a whole range of additional features, including sleep and activity tracking. Best of all, the watch automatically updates the time and date when you travel, so you never have to worry about fiddling with the crown.
This glamorous timepiece will make any woman feel ready to walk down the red carpet. Having shot into superstardom on Elizabeth Taylor’s wrist back in 1962, the Bulgari Serpenti is now a Hollywood staple and the Italian jeweler’s most recognizable collection. This feminine watch seductively wraps around the wearer’s wrist, attracting envious stares wherever it goes. With a range of styles, metals, and finishes to choose from, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to finding the perfect model for her. We personally recommend a diamond-studded edition for that extra touch of luxury.
Chopard Happy Sport
When it comes to iconic women’s luxury watches, it’s hard to beat the Chopard Happy Sport. With its bold yet playful combination of steel and diamonds, the Happy Sport has been one of Chopard’s most popular collections for nearly three decades. Whether you’re dressing up or down, the Happy Sport is well-suited to just about any occasion and outfit. Don’t let its whimsical nature fool you, though. Chopard is a serious watch manufacturer capable of making and assembling just about everything in-house. As one of the world’s last family-run watchmaking and jewelry companies, you can be sure that you are buying into a legacy, not just marketing hyperbole.
Patek Philippe Twenty~4
The epitome of timeless feminine elegance, the Patek Philippe Twenty~4® collection is dedicated to the modern woman. Broadly speaking, there are two options to choose from: the original quartz-powered version with an Art Deco-inspired case, and the new automatic edition, with a modern, round case. Both offer a smooth and comfortable feel on the wrist and easily transition from day wear to evening wear. Adorned with diamonds, the Twenty~4 collection is Patek Philippe’s answer to the contemporary woman’s need for a watch she can wear anywhere and everywhere.
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Lady
Sporty yet chic, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Ladies collection is inspired by the fast-paced world of motorsport. Updated last year, the case now features the same subtle barrel shape of the men’s TAG Heuer Formula 1 model but with softer lines for added femininity. Meanwhile, the dial’s double-plate system adds contrast while also improving readability. The result is very eye-catching, particularly the versions set with diamonds. Newer models (from 2018 onward) also introduce the possibility of quickly changing straps with just one click and no tools. This is ideal for today’s busy woman who may find herself attending several events in a single day and wanting to change straps on the go.
Hopefully, you’ve spotted the perfect gift on our list. If not, don’t worry. There are thousands and thousands of options to choose from on Chrono24. And if you’re still looking for further inspiration, check out this article on the Top 5 Women’s Watches Under $3,000. Good luck and happy shopping!
