The best women’s luxury watches is a hotly-contested market. With so many premium brands and watchmakers to choose from it can be difficult to decide which to go with.
Considering many of the top luxury watches can cost upwards of £30,000, many people can’t afford to choose the wrong one. That’s why we are doing the hard work and picking a top 10 list for you!
We’re going to delve deep into expensive watches for women and discuss which made our top 10 list.
1. Chanel Boy.Friend – £3,700
While it only launched in 2015, the octagonal Boy.Friend by Chanel wasted no time in becoming an instant classic. There is a reason why the Chanel Boy.Friend is one of the best women’s luxury watches of 2017.
Chanel has taken a masculine design and turned it into something elegant and feminine. Recent designs have featured a guilloche dial and optional quilted leather strap, a reminder of the fashion house’s handbags.
Considering the price, this Chanel timepiece is a must-have for any luxury watch collector. With regular refinements and changes being made to the Boy.Friend watch there is plenty to choose from on the new and used watch market.
2. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 – £12,900
No ladies’ luxury watches brands top 10 would be complete without a Rolex so we thought we’d get in there with an early entry. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 has an unusual name and an unusual colour, aubergine.
Despite the irregularities, it’s obvious from a single glance that this is one of the best women’s luxury watches around. The 31mm bezel is encrusted with diamonds and uses Rolex’s self-winding 2236 movement. It’s ideal for anyone looking to make a statement and stand out from the crowd with this unusual but brilliant Rolex.
3. Cartier Maillon de Cartier – £23,000
For years, gold was the standard-bearer for luxury and when it comes to watches that often remains the case. Take the Cartier Maillon de Cartier watch, which feels like a callback to the 1970s with its gold rope chain bracelet.
Of course, ‘maillon’ means link in French and it’s clear that Cartier has gone all-in on the links with this timepiece. The hexagonal case is surrounded by 18-karat yellow gold and a crown set with a sapphire cabochon.
Although the Maillon de Cartier is a watch, telling the time is second to the jewellery, that’s no bad thing. The minuscule case measures just 16 by 17 mm, and it’s pure decadence.
4. Omega DeVille Tresor – £20,850
Although designed for women, the Omega DeVille Tresor owes its elegant shape and name to a 1940s men’s dress watch. The DeVille Tresor has been given a stylish update that combines its classic design with a gold mesh bracelet.
To complete the look, the case is adorned with white diamonds to set it apart from the competition. Since it was released it’s easy to see why the DeVille Tresor is one of the best women’s luxury watches from 2018 and beyond.
5. Piaget Limelight Gala – price on request
Not all watches are created equally, and the Limelight Gala by Piaget might just go down as a classic luxury watch for ladies. Thanks to its fluid shape and style, the Limelight Gala looks like it was born in the 1960s or ’70s.
However, it also wouldn’t look out of place on the set of a vintage Hollywood movie thanks to its decadent bracelet and jewels. The Limelight Gala’s white gold mesh bracelet is just the beginning of the luxury that continues to the dial.
Most watch bezels are functional but the Piaget offers nothing but elegance thanks to the 20 brilliant-cut diamonds and 22 sapphires. The watch evokes everything we love about the Mediterranean Sea, the cool blue and white colours that make you feel like you’re lying on a Greek beach.
6. Salvatore Ferragamo Gancino 22mm Bracelet Watch – £500
High cost and luxury watches often go hand in hand but there are some elegant timepieces out there that don’t cost an arm and a leg. One such example is the Gancino 22mm bracelet watch by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Its thin red leather strap and small dial make it an understated watch. The rose gold case feels substantial but elegant design, which is something of a staple from Salvatore Ferragamo.
7. Ballon Bleu de Cartier – £6,088
When looking at top designer watches for ladies it’s hard to ignore the classic Ballon Bleu de Cartier. However, thanks to its unisex design it looks good on the wrist of anyone.
For any luxury watch collector, the Ballon Bleu is one to have thanks to its 18-karat gold and stainless steel design. Thanks to the two-tone design of the watch, it’s ideal for anyone who likes to switch between gold and silver jewellery when they step out.
No matter if you’re going to a special event or just going about your everyday business, the Cartier timepiece will look great on your wrist.
8. Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas – £30,000
For when you want to channel your inner Cleopatra, we suggest there is no watch better than the Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas. Expensive female watches come in many different forms but this snake-like bracelet adds a little extra.
The guilloche dial is in the shape of a snake’s head and radiates glamour across every millimetre thanks to the brilliant-cut diamonds. The jewels don’t stop there and the crown is set with a cut pink rubellite. There is also another version of this watch that comes with a yellow and white gold double strap bracelet.
9. Piaget Possession Watch – £3,480
Elegance comes in many forms and Piaget has certainly achieved that with the Possession watch. While many watches spoil their perfect lines with crowns, bezels and lugs, the Piaget is a perfect circle.
It can only be satisfying to look down at your wrist and see such a wonderfully minimal timepiece. Despite its minimalist design, Piaget found a way to add some bling thanks to the diamond-studded hour markers. This 29mm watch comes with an interchangeable strap to suit every look.
10. Uniform Wares C33 Satin Gold – £300.00
This Swiss-made Ronda 762 comes with a range of strap options to suit your own fashion preferences. This dress watch comes with our classic C-line silhouette and a 33mm diameter. When paired with a Milanese calf leather strap in mist colour this instantly becomes one of the best women’s luxury watches under 10000 pounds.
All of our watches are designed in-house in our London studio and made in Switzerland. Not only do we have some of the best women’s luxury watches but we offer the same level of design for men and unisex styles too. Thanks to our minimalist approach, Uniform Wares watches feel timeless and can be worn on all occasions.
