    Question Men's or Women's watch??? Maurices Lacroix LC1007-PVY11-130

    Can anyone tell me if this watch is a men's or women's watch? One site says men, another site says women. This is a gift for my father, so I want to make sure it is for the right gender...It's case size is 38mm if that is an indication for anything. I've tried posting the links but can't since this is my first post. I've attached an image:

    Sure looks like a watch a man would wear to me. You may want to consider both whether the style would appeal to him and what size watch he is comfortable wearing.

    I think he would like this. He likes the brand and quartz. Though not as thin as I would like...it is still 9mm thick for a quartz.

    Many watches today fall under the heading "unisex". 38mm is a "classic" size for a man, and this particular watch doesn't have any "femenine" quality to it...so I wouldn't worry.

    The only suggestion I might offer is to see if you can find out the width of the strap. I typically don't put much stock in the "gender" of a watch, particularly at 38mm (lol, and in the absense of diamonds, butterflies, mother of pearl, etc.), but a super-thin strap can sometimes lend to the confusion. Of course, it also depends heavily on wrist-size and preference....so even then it may not mean much.

    And for what its worth, my dad always wore small, thin watches. It was simply the norm he was accustomed to. Looking at those pieces today, I'd swear they were designed for a woman...but nothing could be further from the truth. Again, you know your dad and probably have a good idea of what he's comfortable wearing. Go with your "gut"...rather than "market designations" intended to move product. If it's got your dad's "vibe"...it'll be perfect.

    These days, many women are wearing gents watches even larger than this one, and a few years ago gents watches were trending to the very large. But the trend has backed up a bit.

    So, sellers identify watches in hopes of finding a market. If they think the current popular size for men is larger than 38mm, they may identify a watch like this one as a ladies watch. Zenith did that with their 38mm El Primero, but it has been quite popular with men and rightly so--it was designed as a gents watch.

    As is this one, particularly given the style of the watch.

    Unless your father is into a particular fashion, he will probably prefer this size compared to something much larger.
