12 Stylish Watches to Polish Off Your Workweek Uniform
With complicated, fascinating internal gears and obvious functional value, watches are so much more than just accessories. That being said, the right timepiece can upgrade any ensemble regardless of whether you run fashionably late or stylishly on schedule. Since the latter is always more desirable in a professional setting—and since checking our phones for the time isn't always appropriate—we decided to round up the best women's watches at a variety of price points and designs.
Ranging from oversize, avant-garde pieces to slim silhouettes and bracelet watches, you'll find a timepiece to adorn your wrist in our edit. And if you're looking for new ways to wear it or are on the fence about whether it's worth the investment, get some inspiration from the street style moments captured throughout (leave it to Rihanna to reinvent the old-school charm of a watch). Ready for a fresh batch of styling ideas and items for your shopping wish list? Scroll through the 12 best women's watches below to find one that suits your workweek uniform.
Isabel Marant Stainless Steel and Leather Watch ($850)
Boasting a simplicity that will enhance just about any look, this Isabel Marant watch is the perfect timepiece for anyone who wants to invest in something durable and tasteful. It's reminiscent of the Tank Solo watch by Cartier, but you'll be spending less than $1000. It's also water resistant to battle the elements and fitted with quartz movement to guarantee high function.
Gucci G-Timeless Leather Watch ($980)
This black-band Gucci watch is incredibly versatile. Style it with some funky bangles and minimalistic rings for an edgy, fun look, or go the classic route with a pantsuit for your board meeting. The coral red offers a bold pop of color without being too brash, and we particularly love the golden bee at 12 o'clock for a subtly playful detail.
The Horse The Original Watch Rose Gold/Grey ($119)
The Horse is another great brand for those who like their minimalism with a refined, upscale twist. This understated time-teller can work with just about anything style-wise, and it won't break the bank. The gray leather strap and gold case are subtle yet unique, and the large face gives it a fashionable edge.
Rolex Vintage Oyster Perpetual Date Watch ($5185)
For one-of-a-kind, collectible watches, look no further than a vintage Rolex. Crafted with a polished stainless steel case, this watch has a custom peach dial and green alligator strap. For something newer but still unique, you can customize your Rolex in the color, bracelet style, and dial.
Georg Jensen Steel With Diamond Bezel Watch ($2995)
Part diamond bangle, part numberless watch, this could easily be the finishing touch to your evening look. Organic in shape and elegant in material, it's truly ageless. It also comes in black with one diamond in the center for a moodier aesthetic.
Larsson & Jennings Norse Gold-Plated Watch ($335)
Here's another watch with plenty of styling versatility at a lower price point than some of the other brands. Crafted with lightweight gold-plated stainless steel, this British-inspired timepiece has a clean square face detailed with a single set of Roman numerals to orient you.
Piaget Possession Watch ($6900)
Piaget is a classic watch company that delivers some of the highest-end pieces on the market. The case is set in 18K rose gold with one shining diamond, and the white band boasts a fresh, clean aesthetic. You can also expect the signature Piaget 157P quartz movement for accuracy, so you'll never be late for an appointment again.
