From jeans and sneakers to a shift dress with pumps: fashion is an individual thing - and also depends on the occasion. It's the same with women's watches. To help you, you should think about the following two questions:
In the following, you will learn interesting facts about the most important types of women's watches and current trends.
Chronographs with a stopwatch function are one of the hottest trends in women's watches. Their distinguishing feature are the small subdials, which provide a striking appearance. It makes these timepieces an excellent choice if you prefer a model with a sporty look. There are different gradations, depending on taste: The range ranges from strictly functional ladies' chronographs to noble variants with sparkling stones, such as Festina. The latter are an interesting option if you are looking for a sporty watch that also harmonizes well with elegant clothing. Diver's watches also have a sporty character thanks to their wide, rotatable glass bezel with minute scale. The high water resistance is also practical: high-quality, "real" diving watches from brands such as Seiko and Citizen are waterproof up to a water pressure of 20 bar (200 meters). This means that these women's watches not only survive a dive, but are also well equipped for other sporting activities on and in the water.
Are you a fan of simple and no-frills design? Many current women's watches follow the motto: "Less is more". The basis is usually a setup with three hands for the hours, minutes and seconds. At the same time, an enormous variety of different models is available: the classic line is embodied by ladies' watches with Roman numerals, while Arabic numerals represent the modern version. The trend towards extremely minimalist models is also unmistakable. Brands such as Boccia and "https://www.timeshop4you.co.uk/watches/bering/">Bering rely on dials with fine indices without numbers - or do without them completely. Equally clear and straightforward housings complete the whole. The visual finishing touches are provided by elegant straps made of leather or metal.
The contrast to the puristically designed ladies' watches are glamorous models with a bling factor. Extravagant designs with rhinestones, mother-of-pearl dials and/or targeted use of colour make these models real eye-catchers. Thanks to their jewellery character, these wristwatches can be worn instead of a bracelet or combined well with other jewellery. An interesting new development is bracelets with ceramic links. This material has a noble and at the same time modern flair. Black and white differ slightly in their effect: ladies' watches with white ceramic elements appear feminine and light, while the black versions impress with their striking and elegant appearance. Can't decide? Then without further ado, orient yourself to your preferred clothing colors.
Even if they don't catch the eye at first glance, it's the inner values that matter when it comes to watches. A quartz watch is not automatically better than an automatic watch or vice versa. It depends on what you expect from a watch: Quartz watches are extremely precise thanks to their electronic inner workings and comparatively insensitive to shocks. Consequently, the uncrowned kings in the discipline of shock resistance are quartz watches: the G-Shock models from Casio. In addition, quartz technology allows watches to adjust themselves: radio-controlled wristwatches synchronize wirelessly based on a time signal. Automatic watches, on the other hand, have a mechanical inner workings for which a small spring supplies the energy. Nevertheless, you don't have to wind these automatic ladies' watches: Every movement of your hand causes a small oscillating weight inside to rotate, which in turn tensions the spring. If you take off the watch, the spring tension is enough for a power reserve of about two days on most models. However, more care should be taken when handling an automatic watch, as it is more sensitive to strong vibrations. For this reason, a quartz watch is a better choice when playing tennis, for example.
