14 New Watches for Women that Will Be Worth the Splurge
The oversized watch trend is dying fast, and the traditional petite ladies timepiece is rapidly becoming the new game in horology for 2016.
Between Baselworld and SIHH in 2016 there weren’t a ton of surprises to speak of. There were new colors of dials and bezels, and the usual much-hyped tweaks on existing models from brands like Zenith, Omega, and Rolex. Not many watches wowed (though there were some).
But in the background, behind these flashy novelties, a clear trend emerged: After years of having revolved around oversized “boyfriend watches,” the women’s watch market witnessed a resurgence of a proper ladies’ watch—tasteful, smaller timepieces with a sense of maturity.
2016 saw additions to the segment from all over the spectrum, including brands that seldom if ever dabble in women's horology. Here are some of our favorites.
