Women's watches come in a wide range of styles to suit the unique tastes of individual women. Many women own two or more wristwatches in order to coordinate their most visible accessory with their clothing selection. Different watches suit different occasions and women's watches range from elegant jeweled dress watches to fun sports models.

Women's Watches Were First

The history of wrist-worn women's watches is actually longer than that of men's wristwatches. Women began to wear watches on their wrists in the second half of the 1800s while men kept on digging in their pockets for their fashionable pocket watches. Men finally caught on in the 1920s, after World War I demonstrated that having a watch immediately accessible on your wrist was a tremendous advantage in critical situations.

Women's watches come in a panoply of sizes, shapes, materials, and colors to suit every taste and style. Classic watches come in gold, silver, and platinum, with bracelets in those metals or leather bands in black, brown, or various colors. The most popular shapes of ladies' watches are rectangular watches, round watches, oval watches, and "tonneau" shaped watches, but a nearly infinite variety of shapes is available.

Women want to wear different timepieces depending upon the style they choose to wear, and they are always happy to receive another stylish wristwatch. I recommend looking through the wide selection of excellent women's watches on the Internet. You may be surprised by the excellent prices available at reputable online watch sites.
