Could you imagine your wardrobe without your favorite pair of pants? Thank goodness for fashion rebels that pave the way for new trends.Almost a century later, we see the same approach in the luxury watch space. There are plenty of women out there who are sporting watches that were in fact designed for men—and these ladies look fab doing it. Traditionally, women’s watches have been smaller, more bejeweled, more delicate, and less complex than their male counterparts. Which is fine because a dash of diamonds is always welcomed, but it’s shouldn’t be the only option for ladies who love watches.
