A good luxury watch is something a woman can enjoy for a lifetime. The best luxury watches have incredible design and craftsmanship, so they’ll stay fashionable and in excellent working condition for decades. Wondering which women’s watches are a cut above the rest? Here are the top 5 women’s luxury watches.

Cartier Tank

Small Cartier Silver Tank Argent Watch

The Cartier Tank is legendary timepiece, one that is as elegant now as it was when it was created in 1917. This watch, which has a shape that was modeled on a military tank, has actually always been a unisex watch. Cartier has said about the design, “Its shape, as if governed by a golden ratio, is not quite square, not quite rectangular. By turns masculine and feminine, the Tank asserts that freedom and elegance have no gender.”

The Tank is an iconic luxury watch. If a woman could have only one luxury watch in her collection, a Cartier Tank would be an excellent choice.

Cartier Panthere

Midsize Cartier 18k Yellow Gold Panthere Watch

The Cartier Panthere is an incredibly beautiful watch. Described by Cartier as “streamlined, authentic, and sophisticated,” this watch was designed to be as much a piece of jewelry as it is a watch (though, of course, it’s an impeccably made watch, as all Cartier watches are).

Some unique features of the Cartier Panthere include its bezel screws and its flexible golden bracelet links. This watch is the perfect choice for a woman who loves modern glamour.

Rolex Datejust

26mm Rolex Stainless Steel Datejust Watch With Mother of Pearl and Diamond Markers

The Rolex Datejust is one of the most popular Rolex models of all time. It is the first watch model to have ever had a date display and a quick date mechanism. This incredibly innovative luxury watch set a new standard among wristwatches, and its sleek, unfussy design has allowed it to remain incredibly popular today.

The Rolex Datejust comes in a number of case sizes. The smaller of these, like the 26mm and 28mm, are often referred to as Lady-Datejusts, as the cases are designed to fit well on a woman’s wrist. If a woman has a traditional, classic sense of style, there’s no better watch for her than the Rolex Datejust.

Omega Wadsworth

Midsize Omega Wadsworth 14k Gold Watch

All Omega watches could be considered collectable, though some are more so than others. A shining moment in Omega’s history was the Omega Wadsworth watch, which marked a brief moment in time when Omega used cases made by the Wadsworth Watch Case Company in the 1940s and 1950s. This watch has unique vintage design; it’s quite special. This watch is our top choice for women who love vintage pieces.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual

26mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is an evolution of the watch that changed luxury watches forever, the Rolex Oyster. This was the first water-resistant watch, with an innovative case that shielded it from the elements. While there are many different models of the iconic Rolex Oyster Perpetual, our favorites for women are the ones with slimmer cases, such as the 26mm model featured above.
