CHRONEXT wishes you a Happy International Women’s Day!

March 08. 2016 - by CHRONEXT

Did you know that the first wristwatch ever made was created for a woman? The timepiece was made for the countess Koscowicz of Hungary, by the Swiss watch manufacturer Patek Philippe in 1868. Since then, the world of watches has flourished in terms of mechanics and design. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we are happy to present you with the top 10 women’s watches of all time.


1) Cartier Tank

The Cartier Tank was introduced in 1917, and in many ways, broke the widely accepted rules of circular aesthetics during that time. As made evident by its name, the Tank was inspired by the Renault war tanks utilised in the First World War. Although the Tank is currently celebrated as a popular women’s watch, it was originally primarily strapped around the wrists of men, including the General John Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force. Today, the Cartier Tank still represents timeless elegance and features iconic elements including a rectangular case, Roman numerals, and sapphire cabochon crown.

Worn by: Jackie Kennedy, Princess Diana, Michelle Obama, and Angelina Jolie

Starting from: £ 1,450

2) Rolex Oyster Perpetual

The Rolex Oyster was one of the first waterproof and dust proof watches introduced to the market. The watch was developed in 1926 and featured a sealed case that provided optimal protection of the movement. In 1927, it was none other than Mercedes Glitze who tested the waterproof capabilities of the watch when she wore the prototype around her neck during her swim across the English Channel. Today, The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is still a staple among the Rolex collection. The timepiece is embodied by a timeless aesthetic that signifies the roots and the innovative accomplishments of the celebrated Rolex brand.

Starting from: £ 1,900

3) Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso undoubtedly introduced one of the most ingenious watch features of its time – the unique swivel mechanism. The Reverso made its first mark on the watch loving world in 1931 when it was introduced to help polo players protect their watch face from cracking during matches. Today, the Reverso makes a statement on the wrists of ladies and gentlemen alike.

Worn by: Diane Kruger

Starting from: £ 2,280

4) Rolex Datejust

The Rolex Datejust is a timepiece that is worn by many influential women around the globe. The Rolex Datejust was originally created for men in 1945 but became available for women in various models throughout the years. Today, the Rolex Datejust is a powerful symbol that signifies status and influence. The Datejust continues to be characterised by its hallmark elements including its fluted bezel and Jubilee bracelet.

Worn by: Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry

Starting from: £ 1,970

5) Rolex Daytona 

The Rolex Daytona is one of the most highly coveted timepieces within the watch loving world. The timepiece was made famous by the influential actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. Since then, the watch has continued to increase in both historical and monetary value.

Worn by: Ellen DeGeneres, Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell

Starting from: £ 6,690

6) Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Some may argue that the AP Royal Oak is a distinct masculine timepiece. But women aren’t excluded from wearing this bold watch. In fact, many inspirational women sport this timepiece around their wrist. The Royal Oak is characterised by its powerful features, including its octagonal bezel, exposed screws, and “tapisserie” dial.

Worn by: Serena Williams and Rihanna

Starting from: £ 2,320

7) Chopard Happy Diamonds 

The Chopard Happy Diamonds collection is a line that emanates playful aesthetics and a free spirited attitude. The Chopard Happy Diamonds line features elegant aesthetics and luxurious diamonds that float around freely between the watch dial and case. The timepiece pairs perfectly with a wide variety of ensembles, simply bringing to light the sophisticated yet carefree style and attitude of its wearer.

Worn by: Poppy Delevingne

Starting from: £ 2,200

8) A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia

No list would be complete without a model from the legendary A. Lange & Söhne. The Saxonia Automatic is characterised by its minimalist, symmetrical, and elegant design. The timepiece was introduced as one of four models to relaunch the watchmaking brand in 1994. The timepiece signifies the strength of the Lange name and thus fits perfectly on the wrists of strong and influential women.

Starting from: £ 13,060

9) Hublot Big Bang

The name of the Hublot Big Bang says it all considering the timepiece more or less revolutionised the watchmaking world when it was introduced in 2005. The timepiece is characterised by the “Art of Fusion”, since it merges unusual materials that are presented in a bold and daring way.

Worn by: Bar Rafaelli

Starting from: £ 6,150

10) Cartier Ballon Bleu

The Ballon Bleu is a fresher addition to the Cartier line which combines the technical craft of watchmaking with both traditional and unique design elements. The Ballon Bleu line has become on of the most iconic and popular collections from Cartier since its introduction in 2007, thanks to its demure elegance. A distinctive element of the watch includes its unique integrated cabochon crown.

Worn by: Kate Middleton

Starting from: £ 2,540
