The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 1928  

post #28906 of 48312
I was shopping for a watch for my wife's birthday and have just discovered that any woman's watch is either the right size and quartz or massively oversized .

Are there any horologically significant watches in smaller sizes? I recognize that there isn't much room, but if they can fit 300+ parts in a men's watch to tell the rotation of the planets, they can just make a simple 3-hand in a very small size.

That is a tough one. What is the price range we are talking about? There are some lovely women's watches out there... but they are not inexpensive. Also, what type of size?

Heh, forgot the basics - thinking 10K or less (she is definitely not WIS). So a Patek 4857 is out of range, but I can't believe how many watchmakers sell quartz for huge prices to women.

Smaller the better in general. Something like this Longines @ 29mm (but not in quartz):

The ladies Aqua Terra has a nicely finished movement that is displayed. While not horologically significant, it is quite nice in both 30 or 34mm versions.

Akatsuki, there are lady Omega Constellations in many different smaller sizes, both with mechanical movements and accursed quartz ones.

There are some interesting watches for ladies from Nomos as well.

This. TT Datejust in 31mm, jubilee bracelet, fluted bezel and dial of your (her) choice. Classic, functional, hard wearing and just enough bling visual interest to keep the ladies happy. This is my wife's in "everose rolesor" or whatever the fuck they call it.

Omegamale, my missus has the exact same watch, matching my 36mm

My wife wears a 31mm DJ in SS.  Cartier comes to mind as well but I am not as versed in their whole collection.

Hoping I did't have to do this, twee I know. but it works Akat. We have matching.She also has a Cartier.

Wife doesn't wear watches as previously mentioned, but if I ever got her one it would be a reverso

Speaking of wrist shots with other people, just finished my second session with big personal trainer (6'4", 230 lbs). Wears a Hublot to work. Totally beat me up, but that's what I asked for.

Also, we are not tenderly holding hands in this picture. Just clarifying. Thank you.
