How to Choose a Watch for a Woman Who is Always on the Go

For today's modern professional woman, style is just as important as function when it comes to the type of watch they choose for themselves. If you're looking to get a gift for that special woman in your life who's always on the go, you need to choose wisely for her to truly enjoy it. While you may think that you should just get a feminine watch from an expensive brand, you would be surprised at how some women prefer function over form, especially when taking into consideration how easily some of today's female oriented luxury watches are easily damaged.

Not only that, there are also some women who have an eye towards male oriented watches; however, the sheer size of some of these timepieces often make women reluctant to buy them. Thus, when it comes to choosing the right watch for a woman on the go, you need to consider what sort of situations she is normally in and whether luxury or functionality would be best suited for her in the long run.

Form or Function?

The debate between functionality or form is based on the changes that have occurred in society at the present as more women enter into the workplace. For instance, when examining watch designs oriented towards women during the early 1960s to the early 1980s, it can be seen that despite the variety of brands, the designs stayed true to schematics of having relatively thin straps and small watch faces. In fact, in some of the more luxury oriented models, it was common for the strap to resemble a bracelet with a clasp at each end to hold the watch together.

These watches were developed primarily for form given that they were not known for their overall level of durability. On the other end of the spectrum, by the mid-1980s onward, trends in female watch design changed as watch companies observed greater trends of more women entering into professional positions in corporations or even in the government.

The New York Times states that a shift occurred where there were now two classifications of women's watches, one for form and one for function. Functional watches are similar to the designs for their male counterparts albeit smaller and having a watch face design whose aesthetics are more oriented towards female customers. For instance, online luxury watch seller Zimson has a large variety of watches for women on sale; however, when examining most of them, it can be seen that many of their wares are oriented towards function with only a few being specifically for form alone. This selection, as stated by, mirrors current estimates regarding watch purchases over the past few years where demand for function outstrips that of form when it comes to the watch industry.

Does Functional Mean Cheap?

One of the current misconceptions regarding functional female watches is that they are cheap due to the quality of their materials and their bulky shape, nothing could be farther from the truth. Ranging from brands such as Omega and Dior, functional watches are just as aesthetically pleasing as their form counterparts; however, they have the added benefit of being far more durable. As for the composition of their materials, it should be noted that the durability of functional watches is based on the fact that they are made of an assortment of high tech materials.

For instance, there are some functional women's watches that are made out of ceramic-metal composites that are light yet nearly unbreakable unless subjected to extreme force. Aside from that, the popularity of scratch proof watch faces has grown within the past decade to the extent that many brands include them in the overall design of their functional watches. Not only that, when looking at brands such as Omega and Dior, it can be seen that just because a watch can be considered as functional does not mean that it is not aesthetically pleasing.

The designs, while somewhat similar to watches for men, definitely have a feminine vibe to them as evidenced by the presence of crystal or cubic zirconium inlays into the front of the watch. It is based on this that if you were to think that functional watches were cheap and ugly to look at, you would definitely be wrong on both counts.

Form Does Have Its Good Points

While this post has so far stated that functional watches are growing in popularity among women, which does not mean that watches based on form have disappeared from the market. Due to changing demand, form based watches have gotten far more extravagant and luxurious with some models looking more like pieces of jewelry than actual watches. All in all, if you take the snippets of this article, you will definitely be able to find the right type of watch for a woman that is on the go.

Work Smart - Clark #Myshoedairies

I always have had a long lasting love affair with stilettos. When Clarks India sent me these lovely pair to style for Clarks Shoe diaries contest, I was pleasantly surprised. Thank you Clarks for these! They are so comfortable for office wear, I literally hop skip and jump to work now!

I love experimenting with my work wear. In India, we do not have the luxury to wear short suit. So I decided to pair three fourth formal pant and formal blazer. Right set of formals is chic enough for office and still playful enough for a night out. I am totally crushing on shades of yellow, beige and tan. Best way to get over color fetish is by pairing them together. I wanted to add an ultra feminine take to menswear which is feasible to wear to work. What do you think of the look? Would love to hear your comments.
