“Hold every hour in your grasp. Lay hold of today’s task, and you will not need to depend so much upon tomorrows.
While we are postponing, life speeds by. Nothing is ours, except time”
- Seneca -
“Elegance is sobriety” and in a business environment a lady needs a wristwatch that can make her appear classy and professional at the same time.
Nowadays a business-lady does not want to renounce her femininity or personality in her work environment. The watch market responds to this need providing many design and luxury options.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a list of watch options for business ladies that can be worn everyday - excluding the luxury jewellery watches - focusing on the “business day” models and respecting the following principle well expressed by the stylist Giorgio Armani:
“A watch is one of the most important things you buy. It says a lot about the person”
SIZE OF THE WATCH
The watch dimensions are measured with a calliperand they refer to the external case measurement excluding the setting crown. Thickness of the case, which can have a range from few millimetres up to around 20 millimetres, should also be considered.
Be aware boundary measurements do not exist between the genres but the dimension of your wrist can affect your watch choice. In general, a women’s wrist measurement is around 5cm so your watch choice should take this into consideration.
Please find below a little guide:
SHAPE OF THE WATCH
The most popular watch shape is round: classic and classy it is perfect for every business ladies’ wrist.
A thin or elongated case softens the decisive features while a square case is perfect for highlighting.
