    Watch for my sister

    Hello All,

    My sister is looking to get a watch for Christmas this year, since its her first year in the real world (getting a job after university). She, of course came to me, being the biggest WIS in the family, but I'm not as in the know regarding ladies watches as I am for mens.

    The two watches I suggested for her are the Rolex Ladies' Datejust, and the Cartier Ladies' tank.

    Interested in gold, silver, or two tones, or potentially with a black, tan or brown strap.

    She doesn't like anything too feminine, no diamonds, jewels, or flamboyant colours. She would be interested in unisex/small mens watches if they arent overly masculin. No mother of pearl.

    She's more interested in style, as opposed to mechanics or performance, and looks, not movement will be the deciding factor...

    I know its kind of vague, and may seem to be annoying criteria, but I know pretty much nothing about women's watches so any help would be great!

    Price Range- similar to DJ, and Tank.

    Thanks a lot,
    -Max

    wow, most graduates today finishing school are loaded with student debt and facing an uncertain and at time turbulent job market. if she's willing to blow that much money, i'd take her down to a large local b&m and have her look thru their inventory.

    for the qualities that she's looking for, she shouldn't have to spend DJ class money.

    Maybe ladie's omega aqua terra? great looking, great movement, fair price, not hyper feminine (really just a mini men's version)

    I think you've already got it sorted with the Cartier Tank or DJ.
    Some others to look at - Eterna Contessa and Ebel Brasilia. Omega, Longines and Raymond Weil all have some nice models too.

    Yes.

    But you should worry about your own watch first Max - made any decisions yet?

    I suggest you take a look at what the ladies are doing in the ladies watches forum. I've seen many a beautiful watch there.
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    The Cartier Tank is an excellent iconic choice, and I would recommend that as the women's watch of choice for someone who is more concerned about style than the movement which drives it. Since it only has two hands, the fact that it is quartz powered is not immediately apparent.
