If you are looking to giving her a watch that will make her feel special, you’ll not regret choosing one of many Cartier women’s watches. But there are a few things to consider before you buy her perfect watch.
One’s choice of watch is as important as the quality of the handbag, the cut of one’s suit, or the height of the heel. If such things matter, you might consider watches fitting both her personality and the occasion.
I found out that the Italians tell women to have three timepieces at least:
- one that suits her occupation,
- then a dressed watch for formal or evening wear,
- and also a robust watch for sports or when on holidays
What do you think? How can ladies not appreciate such perceived elegance? It’s a must have in their hearts!
Cartier Women’s Watches
What Size Should You Get?
For anyone who stresses over what size face to get for a woman’s watch, there are 2 ladies’ sizes- a petite and a midsize. The petite is very small.
As an example, a petite Santos would be perfect if your lady has tiny wrists- like 4.5″ dia. (11.5 cm). For a woman who is about 5’6″ (1.65 m) tall, average bone structure, the midsize Tank Francaise would be the perfect size for her. The petite would have just looked awkward on an average size wrist in my opinion.
All of this really comes down to preference, but generally, watch faces should be proportional to the wrist/hand size.
Here is a short resume for each popular elegant model:
