IN THE WORLD OF FINE WATCHES, FAR TOO OFTEN, LADIES WATCHES ARE PUSHED ASIDE AND IGNORED. THE TRUE BEAUTY OF HAUTE HOROLOGY IS THAT IT TRANSCENDS THE NATURE OF FASHION ACCESSORIES AND JEWELLERY; IT’S THE FINE LINE BETWEEN A PERSONAL ACCESSORY AND A DEFINITION OF CHARACTER AND STYLE. WHEN A LADY WEARS A WATCH LIKE THESE, IT’S A STATEMENT, WHETHER IT BUSINESS OR PLEASURE. THESE ARE THE WATCHES FOR LEADING LADIES IN ANY INDUSTRY ANYWHERE.

Ballon Bleu De Cartier
Available From: Cartier – £30 700
Cartier’s Ballon Bleu de Cartier is one of the most timeless designs in the world of fine watches. A brand name that has almost never under designed or ignored the legacy of horology in their approach to women’s watch making. This variation in white gold and dual line diamond studded bezel is our favorite. While this piece is admittedly flashier than most of our other featured watches, its heritage design and iconic Cartier shape make it a statement for any lady wearing one. A classic watch for ladies, with the combination of style and luxury.
Lange & Söhne Saxonia Automatic
Available from: A.Lange & Söhne – £31 500
The A.Lange & Söhne Saxonia Automatic, is an enigma. Rarely do horological designers create a watch for ladies so elegant and free from the realms of the ‘accessory’ label. This watch focuses on the classic design of the watch rather than the overwhelming desire to be seen as a ‘women’s’ piece, its 38.5mm face and mere 7.8mm height, 18ct pink gold bezel and silver face feature a classic design that when viewed with the small diamond bezel, becomes unarguably lady like. The golden face and brown alligator strap with heavy stitching, give a graceful 1920’s feel to the piece. Truly a dress watch for a leading lady and one wed love to see you wear anywhere.
