The Best Luxury Dress Watches for Women

Clean lines and refined dials make these luxury dress watches elegant, go-to timepieces.


Of course, women can and should wear any watch that they love, regardless of whether it’s in a men’s or women’s collection. But in this article, we highlight dress watches from dedicated women’s collections. If you prefer larger watches, you can check out our feature on the best luxury men’s dress watches here. Dress watches are perfect for any occasion. They are casual enough to wear with jeans and a T-shirt, yet also suited to many formal occasions. Dress watches are notable for their elegant dials that are easy to read. Sometimes they have diamonds on the bezel, but we also included models without for those who prefer a more subtle look. Here, we focus on time-only mechanical watches — with a few moon-phase watches — so be sure to read our feature on the best complicated women’s watches too.
