Affordable Watches for Women Reviewed & Ranked
This casual timepiece presents a very elegant look, owing to the white and gold color combination and a simply designed dial.
The gold tone polished steel case, which is 42 millimeters wide, is paired with a slim white leather strap that is held together with a hook buckle. The dial displays gold tone stick indices that mark the hours as well as hour, minute and second hands.
The bezel that encircles the dial is a stationary one and, similar to the case, is also made from stainless steel. The Michael Kors MK2273 is a Japanese quartz-powered watch and is water resistant up to 50 meters.
This highly functional chronograph watch from Nixon is for the woman who is always on the go.
It is a silver-colored watch, with a stainless steel bracelet and case housing a silver dial that displays silver tone markings and hands.
Hours are indicated in Arabic numerals and stick marks, while smaller minute indices form a boundary on the rim of the dial. Sixty-second and sixty-minute sub-dials serve as chronograph timers; and a rectangular date display is positioned right above the sixth hour index.
The bezel that girds the dial is encrusted with crystals, adding more brilliance to the watch exterior.
Since this watch has a water resistance limit of 200 meters, you can wear it while staying active in the water, including recreational scuba diving.
The elegantly sleek design of the Burberry BU9703 mixes the modern and the classic.
The timepiece has an eye-catching rose gold color; however, your eyes will be drawn to the varied geometric shapes displayed on the watch – from the sharp angles formed by the stainless steel link bracelet to the octagonal crown, as well as the checkered pattern found on the surface of the dial.
In addition to a 3-hand analog time display, this quartz-powered watch also features chronograph and calendars functions, as evidenced by the timer sub-dials and the date window situated at the 4 o’clock position.
Protecting the components of the dial is a sapphire crystal lens that is resistant to scratches.
If you are looking for a classically designed wristwatch in rose gold tone, then you might consider owning the MBM3102 from Marc Jacobs.
The case and bracelet are both fabricated from rose gold tone stainless steel, as is the bezel. Prominent against the rose gold color of the dial are the crystal-studded indices that mark the hours. Also displayed are the hour, minute and second hands, as well as a rectangular aperture that reveals the date.
Two sub-dials serve as timers for the chronograph function of the watch while a third displays time in a 24-hour format. Two pushers flank a ridged crown on the right side of the case.
The movement utilized by this timepiece is quartz.
