Women have been wearing men’s watches for a long time now; some prefer the look or style of a larger, “masculine” watch, while others want a more hearty mechanical movement that is sadly lacking in women’s models. Here are a few timepieces that were made for men but work well on a women’s wrist just the same. First, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT – features a slimmer case, that currently holds the record for thinnest mechanical chronograph. When you want a larger watch without the bulk, this watch is for you.
The Monsieur de Chanel Edition Noire has an all black look that minimizes the 42mm case size and features jumping hours and retrograde minutes. This sleek looks adds a little something to an outfit and stands out from the usual diamond encrusted, gold tone timepieces usually made for women. Another great option for women is the new Grand Seiko Elegance SBGK002. This watch comes with a manually wound 9S63 movement and features a beautiful red urushi lacquered dial. The textured dial combined with the highly polished hands in the rose gold case makes for a classy dress watch, and the size is comfortable for both men and women.
