Recently, we posted an article about some great watches perfect for the boardroom. Except those watches were all for men, and – let’s face it – women are execs and CEOs too. Most of today’s most sophisticated women are looking for a watch that can go the distance with them, a watch that makes a statement of power and pause. Generally, these are mechanical watches that are not so expensive that employees and others are thinking more about how much you spent on your watch than what you are saying. On the other hand, you need to make a strong statement of individuality and confidence. Here we bring you a look at five fantastic power-statement timepieces.
Any Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch is a statement of taste and sophistication. The Royal Oak is an icon — celebrating decades of success thanks to its porthole-inspired case shape and definitive confidence statement.
Rolex is a strong choice — even if it is sprinkled with a few diamonds. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust watch is a certified Superlative Chronometer — ensuring precision and rugged durability. Another icon, it says you know exactly what you want.
The perfect watch for the creative executive who likes to think outside the box, the Cartier Crash Skeleton watch offers mechanics and innovation with a design that is at once timeless and visionary. The watch exudes a sense of confidence and yet denial to fit inside a status quo.
Another icon, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch is celebrating 85 years as a winning watch in history. What makes this timepiece so alluring is the fact that it is a reversible watch, which swivels in the case — offering two dials. You can opt for a discreet complication such as the moon phase indicator with a few diamonds for one dial side and a more classic display of time on a different colored dial on the other side. Switch it effortlessly to offer the exact attitude you want to portray.
Ulysse Nardin, a brand known for its pioneering spirit and marine work, offers an exotic alternative to time with the Python-bedecked skeletonized tourbillon with 170 hours of power reserve. Dare to be different and others will see where you lead.
