It's no secret that us females are known for our love of a little retail therapy, and if you're part of the Tailored Styling community, that means luxury retail therapy in particular. Sprawling closets full of luxury brand shoes and bags come to mind, however one thing women are rarely associated with are luxury timepieces. Watch collecting remains a predominantly male hobby but we want to show you how a luxury watch can be as an exciting addition to your wardrobe as special handbag or investment ready-to-wear piece.
Many of our favorite luxury brands have a feminine watch style catered to women's assumed tastes and feature smaller dials, feminine color palettes and daintier designs for a smaller wrist. To name a few, Chanel's J12, the Cartier Panthère and Bulgari's Serpenti watch are all beautiful watches but when it comes to serious watch collecting, luxury brands focusing on creating timepieces only are a much more favorable choice. Especially if you're buying as an investment as well as a treat, or if you're wanting to hand down your purchase to generations to come.
We've picked out five female celebrities who's taste in luxury watches we love, wearing a timepiece that we think is the perfect purchase to compliment even the most feminine wardrobe.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Rose Gold
Kylie has an impressive watch collection, showcasing multiple Audemars Piguet's, Patek Philippe's and Rolex's on her instagram. Seen here in Italy wearing a gorgeous Versace two piece, she's paired the set with an Audemars Piguet Openworked Royal Oak. This watch is stunning, showing the complicated mechanisms of the piece from both the front and the back of the watch.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
An official partner of the brand, Serena Williams is often seen wearing Audemars Piguet's timepieces. Here she wears a Royal Oak Offshore - rose gold with a white rubber strap and finished with diamonds around the 37mm dial. Her piece had the crown moved to the left side of the dial to allow her to wear it while playing.
Patek Philippe Nautilus
A watch collectors dream, whether you're male of female. Victoria Beckham wears Patek's Nautilus 5711. This watch has a years long waiting list and continues to appreciate in value. It's both simple but makes a huge statement! One of our most requested luxury timepieces.
Rolex Day Date Diamond Dial 223238
The Rolex Day Date 40 is typically considered a mens watch, with Rolex offering smaller sized dials specifically for women, however we much prefer to see this size on ladies. A classic piece to be kept forever and passed down generations, the only thing better than a Day Date, is a Day Date with a little something different! This piece features diamond markers rather than the usual 18ct gold markers you'll see on these dials.
Richard Mile RM 07-01
Richard Mille is known for his collaborations with the worlds elite athletes and celebrities to create beautiful yet modern timepieces - their tonneau shaped cases are instantly recognizable to watch fanatics worldwide. Natalie Portman collaborated with the brand in 2014 to create the RM 19-01, a diamond and black sapphire encrusted piece inspired by arachnids. Here she wears the more streamlined RM 07-01 at a Richard Mille dinner in New York City. Paired with a runway Giambattista Valli dress, Natalie shows us that Richard Mille's are by no means a sports watch, but a piece of haute horologie fit for every occasion.
