Looking for a watch you may need to decide what style of watch you are looking for as there are many styles that you can choose from. What you choose will depend largely on, who the watch is for, are there some specific functions you require, is the watch needed for specific events or for daily wear or leisure time.
Watches are always as personal a choice as clothes and jewellery so if you are buying a watch as a gift note what type of watch the lady in question already wears. I like slender delicate watches and would never consider wearing a big bold watch so make sure that what you purchase will be used and not just put in the back of a drawer or passed on to someone else. Here are some watch styles for you to consider.
Ladies Chronograph Watch
A chronograph basically means a recording of time but where watches are concerned the term is applied to those watches that have a stop-watch function of some sort.
Ladies Dress Watch
A dress watch has a look that is more suitable to a specific event or function, like a black-tie event or wedding. They cost more than the norm but you are paying for a smart and sophisticated look.
Ladies Sporty Watch
A sports watch, is obvious in that it has a sporty look and feel, often using bright bold colours with straps more suitable to sporting activities. The watch straps are often made of canvas, resin or rubber jelly straps. Some are not very sporty looking at all and in fact are over £500 and have diamond detail so not quite what I would class as a sporty watch but as they stop watch facilities and other functions they fall in the sporty category.
Ladies Night Illumination Watch
Watches that illuminate at night, coloured with tritium, a greenish-white substance on the hands and numbers that glows in the dark. This watch is great for shift workers or even if you just like the glow of your watch.
A bangle watch is a perfect 2 in 1 jewellery item, shaped like a bangle with the functionality of a watch.
A new trend is to have a watch with charms or beads, these watches are extremely versatile as the beads or charms that you add to your basic watch/bracelet can be changed giving you an instantly different look.
