Christmas gifts Classic watches for women

Last week, we offered a selection of classic watches for men. This week, let’s have a look at what’s available for the ladies.

Baume & Mercier – My Classima

What better gift for someone who loves classic watches than this My Classima, whose name already hints at its styling. This timepiece with its feminine diameter of 31 mm features a pure and simple design, with a polished steel case and pristine white dial decorated with matching steel markers and hands. The date window at 3 o’clock is equally discreet. A midnight blue strap adds a handsome dash of colour. What are you waiting for?

Carl F. Bucherer – Adamavi

While many brands are introducing more and more colours to their ranges, with the rise of interchangeable straps that the wearer can easily change to suit their mood, Carl F. Bucherer is swimming against the tide somewhat with this monochrome watch. Steel case, bezel, dial, markers, hands and Milan mesh bracelet – nothing disturbs its steely serenity.

Cartier – Ballon Blanc by Cartier

A feminine take on the men’s Ballon Bleu, the Ballon Blanc watch by Cartier can be recognised by its brilliant-cut diamond that interrupts the line of the bezel at 4 o’clock. The precious gem is the aesthetic signature of this model, but unlike on the men’s version, it’s not there to hide the crown. With its contrasting black strap against the sunbrushed silvered dial and rose gold case, this watch brings a quirky note to your wrist.

This automatic watch, which was introduced by Gwyneth Paltrow, the brand’s international global charity ambassador, is the ideal everyday companion. The charming heart design on the sunray brushed light grey dial provides visual depth and the diamond markers add a luxurious touch.

Girard-Perregaux – 1966

The 1966 collection was designed to showcase some of the brand’s major technical advances, paying tribute to its innovations in the field of chronometry. This deliciously chocolatey model comes in an extra-thin case and, for the very first time, features a smoked guilloché dial. The centre of the dial is bathed in light, while the edges are in shadow, which enhances the contrast with the eye-catching diamond markers. It’s a sweet treat for the eyes.

Longines – La Grande Classique de Longines

Elegance is a core value of the brand with the winged hourglass, and this Grande Classique by Longines with its classic, timeless styling has a place on every wrist. In line with the aesthetic of its predecessors, this new interpretation makes the most of Longines’ signature blue shade, from the sunbrushed dial to the alligator leather strap. The slender contrasting markers do nothing to diminish the impact of the deep blue dial. This model is a symphony of pure elegance.

Raymond Weil – Parsifal Ladies Quartz Classic

Inspired by Richard Wagner’s opera of the same name, Parsifal is one of Raymond Weil’s flagship collections. Thirty years after the first model was released, the watchmaker has given it a new lease of life with a contemporary redesign that remains faithful to tradition. The bracelet with its cross-shaped links, the gadroons decorating the bezel and the two-tone gold and silver case are all present and correct on this lustrous watch. It’s time to shine!

Vacheron Constantin – Patrimony

The key to the discreet elegance of this watch is the absence of contrast. The opaline silvered dial features virtually invisible tone-on-tone markers. A strap as red as Father Christmas’s tunic provides a single bold splash of colour. This resolutely feminine watch is for women who like to dress up for the occasion but prefer to leave the limelight to others.
