    Good watch for Ladies?

    So the GF has been looking to get herself a watch. I've convinced her to go mechanical over Quartz . So effectively, I've steered her away from fashion brands such as Michael Kors. Her budget is under $300. I've shown her some lady watches from Orient, but nothing had her interest.

    She wants something classic and timeless like this

    However, Daniel Wellington seems like another overpriced fashion brand.

    Her search continues. Any help is much appreciated.

    I don't know of any under $300 USD women's watch that are mechanical or classical. There are some Seiko 5's and Bulova mechanicals that could pass as a women's watch. I think Bulova has one or two women's mechanicals, but I think they are well above the limit. Swatch has some nice classical looking watches, though I don't think mechanical. Tissot may make some. The cheapest women's mechanicals I'm familiar with would be Longines.

    Of course, you could always be really sweet and surprise her with a Van Cleef & Arpels. After all, who needs a car?

    Got this for about 4, a little over but sweet Hammy with presumably a 2824. Made a nice addition to the wife's collection of over priced quartz.

    I think it's best (and safest) to get her what she wants even if you think it's overpriced or not to your tastes. The DW actually looks pretty nice to me.

    This Citizen (AR1113-12A) looks quite similar:

    Glenn, I had the same thought as you too. If she likes it then she likes it. The DW is $200 and it seems like another trend like Michael Kors, but at least it has a timeless design.

    I'm open to quartz suggestions due to budget constraints.

    Seiko Premier: SXDE01P1

    Citizen's Susan G Komen models. I think their prices cames quite a bit after Susan G foundation got in a political situation, and they are not as easy to find as before.

    Tissot has nice classical models. They used to have PR50 model in auto at around $300, but most of the models in that price range are quartz.

    Tissot makes some nice autos but I think they are like mid 400s

    I second the Seiko 5 suggestion. Search here. Click "Case Width" and check all the boxes 35 mm and smaller. There are quite a few nice looking models. I've purchased these for my wife recently:

    She loves them.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I showed her some Seiko's, but she didn't like them. You know what, this would make a perfect Christmas present. I've narrowed it down to either a Bulova or Tissot quartz. Bulova looks like a good value (50% off @ Ashford.com). On the other hand, Tissot has sapphire crystal. Now I just have to discreetly go watch shopping with her.

    The wife has been happy with her Hamilton. Good value, classic and well built.
