With Christmas in the past and Black Friday seeing sales in excess of the millions, ladies watches in particular are expected to see an exponential surge in popularity in 2016’s year of fashion.
Valentines is now fast approaching and sets out the opportunity for you to buy a luxurious, yet affordable Marc Jacobs watch for the lady in your life. Although selecting from the wide range of designer female timepieces can sometimes challenging, we’ve decided to pick out 3 key things you should watch out for when deciding on the right gift for her:
Choose a lifestyle watch
While all watches include a myriad of similar features, some are designed for a specific, core purpose. There are also a wide number of design options available, so it is crucial that you select a watch to suit the recipient’s lifestyle and philosophy. Sport women with a love of the outdoors should wear active watches with in-built fitness metrics, for example, while those who steer a more professional course will require something sleek, functional and enduringly stylish. Knowledge of the recipient is also crucial, while you will also need to compare the market across a number of categories to find the right product.
Purchase a Proportional Watch
Proportionality is a key but criminally underrated consideration, especially when buying a watch for a female recipient. This is because proportionality influences how a watch appears on the arm of a woman, and as a buyer you must purchase a product that is designed to suit the shape, height and body type of the recipient in question. You should consider investing in larger watchcases and wider bands for taller women, for example, while smaller timepieces and slimmer bands are ideal for petite women.
Consider the Merit of Interchangeable Bands
For the majority of modern women, there is a pressing need to balance professional and personal tasks simultaneously. This demands a large and diverse wardrobe, and it can be difficult to find a single watch that is compatible with a wide range of outfits. This is why watches with interchangeable bands have become so popular in modern times, as they allow users to create a host of versatile looks to suit their hectic lifestyle. From coloured bands to metal alternatives, these also infuse existing outfits with colour and a keen sense of vibrancy.
