Let’s face it, most of us are guilty of having our smartphones glued to us at all times. For that reason, it’s fair to assume that watches have lost their practicality. We see it differently. Watches have evolved to become more than just practical timekeeping devices. They serve as a powerful fashion statement and a symbol of sophistication. Renowned luxury brands like Tiffany, Rolex, and Versace have embraced this shift, offering timeless designs that exude class and elegance.
These ten luxury watches are a testament to exquisite craftsmanship. With prices ranging from $480 to $12,900, styles of sleek to bold, and hues of blue, pink, green, and more, these watches cater to the diverse preferences of women.
The Tiffany HardWear watch in Sterling Silver and Steel with Diamonds is $4,950 CAD. This statement watch is handcrafted in Switzerland with a sterling silver bracelet and a stainless-steel case with diamonds.
Another Tiffany favourite is this 2-Hand 24mm Watch for $8,300 CAD. This watch is designed in stainless steel and is accented with refined diamonds. The roman numerals keep the classy, yet timeless, aesthetic.
The Bay’s Ceramic Stainless-Steel Bracelet Watch is a tad more affordable, starting at $807.50 while still incorporating crystals in the set and pave dot to provide that element of extravagance.
