It may not come as a surprise that watch designers are creating timepieces with men in mind. The majority of women’s styles are focusing more on aesthetic design and focusing less on the mechanic, complication and engineering found in men’s styles. With this in mind, its no wonder that many women are borrowing from the boys. Women are switching gears when it comes to Haute Horlogerie, wanting what is considered traditionally masculine wrist wear, and opting for cutting edge mechanical movements. The fine art of skeleton and skeletonised watches are also building traction with women. Its impeccable craftsmanship and mesmerising mechanics have made it a truly spellbinding accessory. Look to brands like Grieb & Benzinger, De Grisogono and Officine Panerai for their ‘open-working’ watches and statement designs.
