6 Men’s Watches that Women Can Rock

best mens watches for women

It used to be just a trend for women to wear watches made for men; but it looks like this movement is here to stay.

Women’s watches are often smaller in size and have more embellishments, which may not suit one’s taste. On the other hand, men’s watches are usually simpler in design but bolder in size; and come with more advanced movements, which may fit a woman’s style and needs better.

A woman who wears a man’s watch is definitely making a statement. If you’re in the market for men’s watches, here are 6 that will look incredible on your wrist:

With its clean dial and simple two-register chronograph layout, the IWC Portuguese is one versatile timepiece.

Pair it with a pantsuit and it looks professional. Wear it with jeans and a shirt and it looks sporty-casual. It’s also the best-known IWC watch, so even those who aren’t horologically in the know will recognize it. Seen here on Rosamund Pike’s wrist is a black dial Portuguese; but we suggest a white dial for maximum versatility.

If you’re after a larger sized case but also want a variety of colors to choose from, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King is your best bet. With a 34 mm case, the Air-King is slightly larger than ladies’ watches but will still fit your wrist comfortably.

It’s a good choice for Miranda Kerr given the model and entrepreneur’s jet-setting lifestyle – the Rolex Air-King can easily go with anything from jeans to dresses.

Most people assume that women are only into embellished, diamond-laden dainty watches, and there’s nothing like a uniquely-shaped sports watch to prove them wrong.

The Royal Oak, introduced in 1972, is the original luxury steel sports watch and has become an icon since. Olivia is sporting a rose gold Royal Oak model here – which can be worn with a preppy wardrobe or as a weekend watch. SEE ALL ROYAL OAK >

Panerai does not actually make any women’s models, so it’s an overtly masculine brand. Originally created as a military diving watch, it’s made for toughness and functionality, so a woman who wears one is making a really strong statement.

Take your cue from Paneristi Heidi Klum and pair it with a dress. She wears a Panerai Radiomir which has thinner lugs compared to other Panerai models.



Rolex President Day-Date as seen on Jennifer Aniston

#2 | Rolex President Day-Date

The Day-Date is Rolex’s flagship watch. It has achieved mythical status as the watch of leaders, diplomats, and powerful men, after being worn by several US Presidents.

For a woman who’s achieved so much, there is no watch more fitting than the most esteemed Rolex. A-lister Jennifer Aniston seems to agree. Her 36 mm Rolex Day-Date helps her make a statement, without overpowering her wrist.



Rolex Cosmograph Daytona as seen on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The Daytona is perhaps the most popular men’s watch among female celebrities, also counting Sofia Vergara, Ellen DeGeneres, and Victoria Beckham among its fans.

The classic stainless steel model is easy to pair with everything from jeans and a tank, as seen here on Rosie. With a 40 mm diameter case and a bracelet that fits 7.5” wrist, it’s big enough to make a statement, but won’t hang loose on your wrists.
