Gold watches have always been status symbols in society, personifying wealth even as more affordable options became widely available. But this accessory seems even more luxurious now that everyone has a built-in clock in their smartphones. Watches almost evoke nostalgia for a simpler, bygone era. This nostalgia is so prevalent that there are plenty of SmartWatches out there that masquerade as stylish analog timepieces.
If you needed another reason to invest in a watch, consider the fact that women who wear watches just seem more put together. Perhaps it’s because they don’t need to go rummaging in a pocket or purse for their phones to tell you the time and can just answer with a flick of the wrist. They also took that extra step of carefully fastening on a watch before leaving for work and look like girl bosses in any meeting they walk into.
Gold watches add a touch of elegance to any outfit. You could wear jeans and T-shirt, then clasp on a watch before leaving, and that simple touch alone will up the ante on your look. There’s a presumption that there’s no way a woman who put on a watch and properly accessorized rolled out of bed 20 minutes before she had to leave for work — even if it’s a fact.
Whether you’re trying to put some distance between you and your phone or want to convince your boss you’re professional and worth promoting, we found the best gold watches for women that will suit your sense of style and budget.
