Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
Gents - we know that sometimes the guilt quotient gets a little high and sometimes you have to ease tensions with a purchase for her.
Ladies - we're likely responsible for some disagreements over watch budgets, and yes, he was with us that night he came home smelling of scotch. Let him (and us) make it up to you...
It is perhaps one of the greatest injustices in horology that women's wristwatches are so commonly treated as lesser objects, resulting in far fewer iconic designs worth collecting.
This is truly a shame, and probably one of the reasons why horologically-minded ladies have taken to wearing men's watches in the past decade. It seems that just now brands are getting the memo, and a few manufactures (notably Vacheron Constantin and Parmigiani Fleurier) have begun producing proper ladies watches again - you know, those ones that eschew faux-gold, not-so-precious stones and batteries for the real thing: mechanical, wearable art. Long, long overdue. Still, when it comes to vintage options for ladies, the pickings can be slim, quite the opposite from men's.
Fortunately there are pieces like this one out there to save you.
Try as we might, we cannot think of another mechanical ladies timepiece that has remained in constant production for decades. Every bit as iconic as the Datejust, the Oyster Perpetual Date features a 34mm Oyster case - a size that is perfect for the modern lady. The soft coral dial is a delight and makes this watch stand apart from the typical white or gold dials typically found on ladies' pieces. And coming complete with its original box and papers, this piece is in the perfect condition for presentation...
