Top list: Chic watches for women

A watch isn’t just a watch. It’s also a piece of jewellery that you always have on you. Here are models suitable for both everyday use and parties.

Top list: Chic watches for all styles

There’s an unwritten rule that right-handed people wear the watch on their left wrist and vice versa. The reason for this is that it is easier to wind or correct a watch when using your writing hand. Nowadays, most watches run on batteries so maybe that's also why this old fashioned rule is no longer as strict. Today, all kinds of people wear their watches on either wrist.

Here are seven models for all occasions.

Seiko Dress (SRZ498P1)

Three tips for buying a watch

  1. Buy the right size. Do you want a small and narrow watch or a wide one with a large dial? Think about what suits your style best.

  2. Analogue or digital? This is a matter of taste, where only you know which you like best.

  3. Battery or self-winding? Are you OK replacing the battery or do you prefer a watch to wind itself up and never stop? Choose your watch accordingly.
