Gentlemen, what do you have, 2 weeks until February 14?  Are you still wondering what to get?  Well, maybe I can give you a few suggestions with the 2016 edition of the Wrist Watch Review Valentines Day Gift Guide.  In general, women’s watches do not excite me.  The majority of the ones I see have quartz movements, a mother of pearl dial, a few bucks worth of diamond chips and cost $100s more than the gentleman’s equivalent watch.  In essence, they are designed as jewelry.  But there are watches that are either made for a woman, or not so large they look out of place on a woman’s wrist, that are actually interesting watches.

My first pick (actually my first two), come with a deal, free shipping and 40% off from Orient Watch Co. with the code “VAPR40.”  So what do you use it on?  One option is the unisex SoMa automatic, a 37.5mm dress watch offered in a couple of variations.  I like the clean white dial, and with the discount the watch sells for $114.

If your lady is really sporty, then the 38mm verion of the Christopher Ward C60 Trident may be an excellent choice.  The 300 meter quartz watches are $415 – $495, and the 600 meter automatics start at $825.

  1. The Nomos Glashutte Terra or the Christopher Ward C60 will be a great gift.

    I think orient “VAPR40” is not a nice gift. It looks so sloppy as the date aperture overlaps the 6. Just remove the 6 from the dial and it will be much better.

    The Parrelet is beautiful but I think the legibility of the hands is not that good. The color of the flower decoration and the silver hands should contrast. Perhaps, it’s better to use pink as the color of the flower decoration.

    1. I agree totally on the Nomos (I should, I put the list together). The VAPR40 is not a watch, but rather a discount code of the Orient Watch line. I wanted to include potential gifts at a number of price points, and with the sale, I would argue that an automatic from Orient is a more interesting watch for the price than a $100 quartz watch. It certainly is not in the same league as the Nomos, but it is also not nearly as expensive.

      With the Perrelet, there are other color options for the watch that offer much greater contrast.
