Thanks for your thoughts, mimo. I'll look into those brands (and if anyone has specific models in mind they like, please share). For ease of use, I think quartz actually will be preferable, especially to hand-wound.
I'll not be the one doing the buying, I'm just 'consulting' for two different ladies (hence the big spread in budget), and since I haven't really researched ladies watches all that much, I'm looking for recommendations here as I'm sure there must be stuff out there (at both price points) that I'm not aware of.
Since most of what I've found (especially at the lower end) is disappointing aesthetically, I'm hoping for some better looking suggestions. At the higher end it's...
Any recommendations for nicely designed lady's watches?
It's for someone attracted to this 26mm Rolex
as well as the smaller Nautilus models like the 4700/1.
Below $10K, what other (non-Rolex) models would you suggest looking at? Clean and simple designs are preferred, relatively subtle precious stones like on the Rolex are fine, as is quartz movements.
(I've already suggested smaller JLC Reverso and Cartier Tank models.)
And at the cheaper end, are there any lady's...
