Skagen Gitte SKW2142

Skagen Gitte SKW2142 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Quartz
Diameter: 38mm
Crystal: Scratch resistant mineral
Water resistance: 30m

First, we have a clean example from Skagen. The Gitte is a simple white face with a rose gold case and bracelet. Skagen is proud to show their Danish design, which is all about simplicity and clean lines.

At 38mm, it would be a great accessory for a night out on the town, or a business casual outfit.

Citizen Eco-Drive Axiom GA1058-59Q

Citizen Eco-Drive Axiom GA1058-59Q Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Japanese-quartz movement
Diameter: 30mm
Crystal: Mineral
Water resistance: Splash resistant

A second example is from Japanese manufacturer Citizen. Featuring Eco-Drive technology, which powers the watch through light, this rose-gold example with a black face is a powerful number compared to the Skagen example.

At 30mm, it’s smaller but wit with contrasting jewel hour markers, it’s a more formal example of a great women’s watch.

Kate Spade Holland Piñata KSW1329

Citizen Eco-Drive Axiom GA1058-59Q Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Quartz
Diameter: 34mm
Crystal: Scratch-resistant mineral
Water resistance: 30m

Off to the opposite side of the spectrum is this fine example from kate spade new york. At 34mm, this one is a slightly bigger example, and the watch definitely stands out from the crowd.

Kate Spade designs very outlandish watches, and on her collection, this is one of our favorites with a big piñata hanging around with confetti all over the white face.

It’s fun, stylish, and outgoing. You’re definitely the fun one wearing this example.

Bulova 96P162 Quartz

Bulova 96P162 Quartz Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Quartz
Diameter: 36mm
Crystal: Mineral
Water resistance: 99ft

If you’re not too crazy like the Kate Spade piece but find the first two a little too plain, you might enjoy this piece from Bulova. Featuring a clean, adaptable stainless-steel case and bracelet, it’s understated and not as limiting as rose gold. The multi-colored face is the statement part of this example though, with silver contrasts to complement the whole experience.

This would go well with casual Fridays or even a power suit. The world is your oyster!

Four Watches Between $500 and $1,000

Cronometrics S17 ‘The Architect’ CM01WS17

Cronometrics S17 ‘The Architect’ CM01WS17 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Miyota 1L-45 quartz
Diameter: 42mm
Crystal: Hardened mineral crystal
Water resistance: 5ATM

As we move up prices, let’s start off with a dark horse. Cronometrics is a small watch manufacturer based in Germany. A new start-up, Cronometrics only has two designs and this piece, ‘The Architect’ really stood out.

Featuring a triangle as their centerpiece, it stands out from the crowd and will be asked who made this watch. Check out why they chose the triangle as their symbol. I think it’s a discussion piece by itself.

“The points represent the tri-color spectrum as well as the three dimensions humans can perceive. The triangle is recognized by designers and engineers as the most stable physical shape.”

Seiko Sportura Automatic Open-Heart SSA884J1

Seiko Sportura Automatic Open-Heart SSA884J1 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Seiko automatic
Diameter: 37mm
Crystal: Hardlex
Water resistance: 100m

Next is a dependable Japanese-made Seiko from their Sportura line. This is a personal favorite because of the open-heart window at 9’o clock showing the movement that’s running the show. With a mix of stainless steel, white, and rose gold, it has great accents to fit an assortment of outfits and rugged enough to be tossed around a quick jog around the morning.

With big legible hour markers and an automatic movement, it’s a great contender for a stylish daily watch.

Victorinox ‘Maverick’ V249080

Victorinox ‘Maverick’ V249080 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Swiss-made quartz
Diameter: 34mm
Crystal: Sapphire
Water resistance: 100m

If the white accents from the Seiko aren’t your flavor, here’s an alternative balance from Swiss-made Victorinox. The ‘Maverick’ line is their sporty collection of timepieces and at 34mm, it’s slightly big but packs a lot of value on your wrist.

Victorinox also manufacture Swiss Army knives, so ruggedness and dependability are in their bloodline. With gold accents and a blue motif, this is a darker example and while it has a quartz movement, it’s as reliable as the Seiko piece we saw example. The contrasting blue face to the stainless steel bracelet is great for dresswear and business casual outfits.

Mondaine Helvetica MH1L2211LB

Mondaine Helvetica MH1L2211LB Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Swiss-made quartz
Diameter: 38mm
Crystal: Anti-reflective sapphire
Water resistance: 99 ft

This example from Mondaine isn’t sporty and fully focused on casual wear. The Helvetica text was designed in Switzerland and what better way to pay tribute to a simple and modern type of text than to plaster it on a watch? Featuring a calendar window at 6’o clock, this Helvetica timepiece just sports leather straps and a gold case. I like how the manufacturer is letting the text do the talking, having Helvetica featured on the white face.

Four Watches Between $1,000 and $2,000

Junghans Form A 027/4735.00

Junghans Form A 027/4735.00 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Swiss automatic
Diameter: 39mm
Crystal: Sapphire
Water resistance: 50m

Junghans is another low-key brand and we here at GW like to mix things up a bit. Featuring an automatic movement, you definitely get the feel of luxury with this watch, with a bold watch design. Different from the crowd, Junghans has great modern design that will go well with your dresses and business functions. The light contrasts will definitely make your wrist stand out.

Specifications

Movement: Swiss-made Ronda Quartz
Diameter: 40mm
Crystal: Sapphire
Water resistance: 50m

From the runways to your doorstep comes a bold design from Versace. Featuring their signature Medusa head, this watch oozes Italia: the bold outer bezel, and the inner bezel keys are definitely there to make a statement. With Roman numerals throughout, this piece will be brash and at 40mm will have require a lot of wrist presence.

Frederique Constant Heart Beat FC-310CDHB2PD4

Frederique Constant Heart Beat FC-310CDHB2PD4 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Swiss automatic
Diameter: 34mm
Crystal: Sapphire
Water resistance: N/A

From Italy to Geneva, we have a great automatic piece coming from Frederique Constant. Featuring an open heart window at 12 o’clock, we can see the movement in action every hour that we need to.

Style-wise, this one is a very dark piece, featuring dark leather, a dark watch face, and rose gold accents. We wouldn’t recommend it against darker skin tones as it wouldn’t be enough to stand out and would just blend.

Rado Integral R20789155

Rado Integral R20789155 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Specifications

Movement: Swiss quartz
Diameter: 30mm
Crystal: Sapphire
Water resistance: 30m

This example from Rado is different from the rest of the list because of the minimalism presence and bracelet-like design. Featuring a square case with gold accents, the hands definitely stand out from the black watch face.

No indices supports the minimalist style and would be a great incognito piece to add to your collection.
