When buying a women's watch, there are many things to consider. Honestly, most women should probably own at least three watches, which we will go over, but the truth is, most women prefer one watch over another and will wear it regardless of what they're doing.

My wife is a professional that works in a corporate office building. She own a watch that is thin and blends into her outfit for the day. When we dine out, she puts on a flashier watch that says something about her personality. On the weekend, she'll wear a throw-around kind of watch. One that doesn't matter if she bangs it against the car or take it into a pool.

Ask Yourself the Following Questions:

1) What is my price point?

Not to say you can't get a quality watch without breaking the bank, but it's important to realize before you buy a watch that for anything with some substance of quality, you're going to have to spend at least a few hundred dollars. Don't be fooled by "nice looking" watches that are $50. They are junk and will not last.

You can get a decent quality watch for well under $500, but that's up to you. Watches sell for every price imaginable - you just have to decide where you stand.

2) What materials do I prefer?

Do I like a leather band? How about a metal bracelet? Is gold my style, or stainless steel? Am I looking for a jeweled inner working 12 diamond face, or will a simple white dial do the job?

These are questions that one must ask before going shopping. The truth is to all these questions is - yes. Leather bands are great. They can be formal or informal. Jewels are going to be flashy and should be contained to watches that you want to show off - to flaunt yourself. White and blacks simple faces are conservative, while gold is traditional.

3) Is this an investment piece?

For most of us, the answer is no. Some watches however, do go up in value. For example, it's common that a well taken care of Rolex will hold it's own and increase in value over time. On the other hand, if you're watch isn't a collectible or rare, simply take care of it and know that it can last a lifetime. Perhaps it will be something you hand down to a family member, or use the rest of your life.

4) Am I looking for a universal watch, or several depending on the situation?

I talked about my personal situation above, but you must ask yourself this question. If you're looking for a single watch, I would recommend something conservative, yet fun. Perhaps a TAG Heuer. They are incredibly well built, timelessly styled, and are in the middle-of-the-road when it comes to price. Choose a dial color that suits you and stick with stainless steel links. If that's not your style, but you still want a single watch, I would go for a nice brown leather banded watch. Anything else is so situationally specific that it's hard to wear it in any setting.

5) What is my personal style?

Are you flashy? Are you conservative? Outdoorsy? Cube Dweller?

Whatever your style, pick a watch that compliments it. There's no need for someone who spends most of their time in a cubicle to have a diamond crusted watch unless that style is specific towards them. Or a farmer to wear a Rolex (ok well my Grandfather did, but...). Watches should be practical. A nightclub owner wearing a calculator watch simple will not do. You get my drift.

Whatever your style, always comparison shop when choosing a watch. Personally, I'm a big Amazon believer. There is almost any watch conceivable there, most backed by full warranties and easily returnable. What I like most is that there is no tax and shipping generally is free or inexpensive.

I gave this watch (the Baum & Mercier Women's MOA08792 Diamant Diamond Watch) to my wife for Christmas and she was blown away by it. Loves it! We already own two Baum & Mercier watches between us, but my wife's was a Hampton's model with a leather strap band, which is great for casual wear. Her new one is for formal wear. HOWEVER, be aware that Amazon is NOT an authorized Baum & Mercier (B&M) dealer, and hence the (2-year) factory warranty will not be honored by a B&M dealer. (Amazon obtains their B&M watches from a 3rd party.) Amazon does replace the factory warranty with their own (2-year) warranty on the internal mechanism only. BUT, given the huge discount that Amazon was offering - about 70% off the list price, which was the difference between affordable and untouchable - I was willing to gamble on the inferior warranty, and potential inconvenience of having to return it to Amazon if a problem develops. We have never had a problem with either of our B&M watches, and they are both about 20 years old.

Wealth and platinum quality is the ability to fully experience life

The elegant design of the TAG Heuer Women's Aquaracer Diamond Pink Mother-of-Pearl Dial Watch exhibits subtle feminine class. Its jewel-encrusted stainless steel bezel is a radiant complement to the pink mother-of-pearl dial, set with jewels in place of hourly markers. These hourly markers are set at all hour positions with the exception of the 12 o'clock, where a silver-tone Arabic numeral 12 is displayed, and the three o'clock, where an easy-to-read date window can be found. This exquisite dial is held by a durable stainless case, which connects to a handsome silver-tone band that fastens with a handy fold over clasp with double push button safety. The analog display features luminous hands and delicate black minute indexes on the outer edge of the dial. With water resistance to 99 feet (30 meters) and an antireflective-sapphire crystal protecting the dial, this sophisticated timepiece is made to last.

I've had this watch for 5 years and it runs great and looks great. I continue to get compliments on it. It's a classic watch...nothing trendy but will never go out of style. Goes with everything. The watch continues to put a smile on my face everyday when I put it on.

Genuine gold warms the silver hue of this Cartier timepiece. The Cartier Women's Cartier Women's Francaise Stainless Steel and 18K Gold Watch features a beautiful stainless steel band accented by bars of 18kt yellow gold. A rectangular, stainless steel case is topped by a stainless steel bezel. A scratch-resistant, sapphire square dial window protects a crisp white-grained dial. Black Roman numeral hour indicators, black stick minute markers and dark, blued-steel hands creates a classic look, while the Cartier logo marks this fine timepiece. Powered by Cartier's own Calibre 057 Swiss-quartz movement, this watch is also water resistant to 99 feet.

Michele

Affordable Perfection

The rectangular case of the Deco Day reflects the geometric shapes identified with Art Deco architecture. One hundred and eight brilliant diamonds surround the mother-of-pearl dial. A Swiss chronograph and subdial for the day of the week add the finishing touch. The stainless steel bracelet is interchangeable with any 18mm Michele strap.

I brought my wife this lovely watch and she loves it! since, she has brought two more Michele watches. They are classy, well designed and crafted. truly a nice piece to collect through time! This Michele Deco watch's diamonds are what makes it stand out and what attracted us to it. A fantastic watch for your beautiful collection, I recommend it!

Movado

Outstanding Elegance

The elegant simplicity of Movado's signature Museum dial is beautifully highlighted in this sleek and versatile timepiece from Movado's Amorosa series. This gold-tone watch features a round black dial with Dauphine hands and a concave dot marker at the twelve o'clock position. This is the minimalist look made famous for Movado by American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. Horwitt intended his design to be evocative of a sun dial, with the dot representing the sun at high noon. The dial is housed in a 26 mm steel case and framed by a perfectly round polished bezel. The watch presents on a beautifully polished gold-tone steel bangle bracelet accented with 18 small round diamonds. The bracelet measures 6.25 inches and fastens with a jewelry clasp. Other notable features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and precise Swiss quartz movement.

I received my beautiful Movado Women's Diamond Amorosa watch three days after ordering it and it surpassed my expectations. I have been wearing it daily and am proud to show it off! The quality is beyond reproach and I highly recommend to anyone considering purchasing this gorgeous watch, don't hesitate!

The Best Selling TAG in the World

Energetic, sporty styling and reliable precision make the Aquaracer WAF1414.BA0812 the perfect watch for all of your water sport adventures. The elegant white mother-of-pearl dial has a clean, uncluttered look and features three-hand function, a tonal TAG Heuer logo, and an automatic date calendar at the three o'clock position. Highly polished hands and hour markers are coated with a luminescent material for optimal radiance and readability. Framing the dial is a unidirectional rotating bezel with engraved dive time markers, for safe timing of dives and other limited events. The watch is set in a 29 mm brushed steel case and presents on an elegant and durable brushed steel link bracelet with polished center links. The bracelet fastens with a double safety clasp and features an extension system that allows it to be worn over a diving suit. Other notable features of this watch include a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown and caseback for water resistance to 300 meters.

I bought this watch for my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary and it is wonderful. I scoped the watch at the local jeweler ($1500 there) to make sure it was what i had hoped and to make sure what i got matched up. I can't say enough about Amazon as a general statement, but this was the first purchase over $300 I made with them. Some of Amazon's other sellers had good pricing too but as a prime member i wanted it from amazon for the shipping and also for their limited warranty on this watch. save your money and buy from amazon. The watch is perfect Ii couldn't be more pleased. TAG is a great brand and I love mine to death and have for many years. every person should own a timepiece at one point in their life. You wont be disappointed with this watch, it's a looker.

      Great lens for advice and we agree that the more flexible the watch to suit all occasions the better. We find the ladies range in the Fossil watches are popular

      My wife owns a Michele that she loves to no end. She always receives compliments on its beauty. We bought hers on Amazon like you show here - we saved over $100 just on tax, plus the hefty Amazon discount. Overall I think we saved about $500 from retail price. Great lens Jake!!!!!!
