How to Buy a Watch for Her

If you’re lucky she’ll model her new watch for you. If you’re lucky she’ll model her new watch for you.

If you’ve decided to buy a watch for your lady, you’ve made a smart choice. Women’s watches make fantastic gifts because they are both practical and fashionable. A stylish watch is the perfect accessory for any outfit and is an essential part of any women’s wardrobe. Before you rush out to make your purchase, however, you need to figure out what kind of watch would suit her best.

Is your girl trendy and modern? Old-fashioned and classic? Does she prefer simple or gaudy? Gold or silver? These are the types of things you’ll want to determine before you walk into the jewelry store. Just because you like the watches on display doesn’t mean she will. This gift is for her, so keep her tastes in mind and you’ll find the perfect watch.


We like Movado because it gives you a lot of choices in a variety of styles. From classic to contemporary, Movado offers designs for every personality. The beautiful Harmony watch is jewelry-inspired in two-tone or gold-plated stainless steel. This classic double-bangle bracelet watch has simple lines with a black or mother-of-pearl face. The Swiss quartz movement ensures accuracy, while the multi-setting jewelry clasp gives an adjustable fit. Harmony retails on Movado's website for $995, but you can find it on Amazon for $495.

The Concerto is a gorgeous contemporary watch fashioned in solid or gold-plated stainless steel. It’s comfortable as well as fashionable, with wide, sculpted links. Available with a full diamond bezel, the round case features an elegantly recessed crown. The trademark Museum dial is detailed by a discreet minute ring and a mother-of-pearl face. As it’s a pricey timepiece ($1,995), you may want to save it for a special anniversary.


For classic women’s watches with modern features, consider Burberry. Macy’s offers a Goldtone Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch for $495 that comes with a two-year warranty. This hefty watch has a round case and white dial with logo, date window, and stick indices. Ideal for the woman who prefers a bit of weight to her jewelry – not for the one who likes dainty or delicate.

For the lady who does prefer delicate jewelry, check out the Burberry Etched Bracelet Watch from Nordstrom, currently available for $325. The dainty rectangle face features a Sunray dial and silver case. The unique etching engraved on the band is lovely and sure to please her eye. It has all the features you’d expect from Burberry – reliable quartz movement, water resistant, and adjustable clasp closure.

For a special occasion, consider the Ladies’ Diamond Bracelet Watch for $595. This beautiful watch is two-toned silver and gold with twelve round, single-cut diamonds. A pretty grid design marks the face with gold surrounding the case. The mineral crystal is scratch-resistant and the face is lovely mother-of-pearl. She’ll enjoy checking the time as each hour is marked by diamonds.


With a reputation for excellence, Swarovski provides a nice line of women’s watches that are stylish yet reasonably priced. Does your girl like to make a statement when she dresses? She may love the Elis Crystal White for $550 (Currently on sale for $332 on Swarovski.com). It’s hip, trendy, and elegant with a white leather band and eight hand-applied clear crystals on the face. The shiny silver color gives it a clean and sophisticated look, while the crystals make it stand out.

If your girl likes quiet and understated, the Piazza Beige might be the watch for her. The gold and beige tones are warm, and the shape is timeless and classy. The strap is made of nice beige leather, and the case is a lovely gold. Although this watch is not as outspoken as some of the others, it is far from simple. 44 crystals make up the numbers on the face, making it sparkle brilliantly. For $575 you are getting a great value.

Last but certainly not least is the watch for all the glamour-loving girls out there. For $625, the Elis Rose Crystal Mesh is perfect for the girl who looks pretty in pink. Studded with rose -colored crystals, this watch dazzles without looking gaudy. Eight hand-applied crystals are inside the silver case, with a 3-D look on the face. Stunning and spectacular – this watch may be just what her girls-night-out outfit has been missing.

When shopping for a women’s watch, make sure you buy quality. For reliable time-keeping, choose one that has quartz or mechanical watch dial movements. You want a gift that lasts a long time, and that expresses the depth of your love for her. Buying a quality women’s watch is a wonderful way to show your lady how much you care, with the added bonus of reminding her every time she looks at her wrist.
