Best New 2021 Women’s Watches

Our Edit of the Best New 2021 Women’s Watches highlights all the best launches from this year. For the latest in stylish wristwear, we select the sharpest designs and key investment pieces.

1. Best 2021 Watch from MICHEL HERBELIN: Antarès Gold Edition

From stylish French watch manufacturer Michel Herbelin, the new gold tone Antarès is the ultimate versatile watch. With its patented click and lock design, the strap is exchanged in seconds. Simply select the case and dial, then select the strap. We love the white strap combination. However, our favourite has an elegant gold tone bracelet with roller links. Buy with just one strap or choose additional straps to accessorise with more of your wardrobe. Additionally, a dedicated Antarès gift box with space for additional straps makes it a really special gift this Christmas. Prices start from £490. The bracelet version is £645.

2. Best New Watch from CITIZEN: Capella Diamond Watch

Selected for its 34mm diamond set case, the new Capella from Citzen makes a style statement. In rose gold tone stainless steel, a halo of 52 diamonds surrounds the sapphire crystal. Also, the silver sunray dial is a bit of a stunner with a scalloped pattern radiating from the centre. The integral crown is an unusual feature and creates an uninterrupted line around the case. Finally, it’s powered by light and never needs a battery. Price: £595.

3. Best 2021 Women’s Watch from ELLIOT BROWN: Kimmeridge

Kimmeridge from British brand Elliot Brown is a rare beast: it’s tough and water resistant to 200m but doesn’t compromise on style. For some reason, practical women’s watches are often ugly. Not Kimmeridge. With a 38mm case it’s not a small watch, but we love the trend for oversized cases at the moment so it’s right on point. We love the new rose gold version 405-012-L62. Priced at £375, it’s a sophisticated piece with a brushed case and matt white dial. A taupe strap in soft, premium leather secures it to the wrist. Perfect for the active woman this Christmas.

4. Best New Watch from MONDAINE: Classic 36mm Bracelet Watch

From Swiss brand Mondaine, we love the new Classic 36mm Bracelet Watch. With a brushed finish bracelet and and the iconic Swiss Railways dial, it’s the perfect fusion of classic and contemporary style. Priced at £215, it’s a great value for a Swiss watch too.

5. Best New Watch from SEIKO PRESAGE: Cosmpolitan Watch

From the popular Cocktail Time Collection, the Cosmopolitan is our pick of the Best New Women’s Watch from Seiko Presage. Inspired by classic cocktails mixed by award winning bartender Hisashi Kishi, the dial colour is inspired by the pink shade of a Cosmopolitan cocktail. Consequently, cool silver tones combine with delicate pink to create a timepiece with a sophisticated vintage charm. Priced at £360, the Cosmopolitan has an automatic movement and is water resistant to 50 metres.

6. Best New Women’s Watch from BULOVA: Sutton

For sub £200, Sutton from Bulova is great value. With a 20.5mm case, it’s a classic, unimposing watch that will suit even the most slender of wrists. The case and bracelet are in gold tone stainless steel in a brushed and polished finish. Also, the elegant champagne dial is set with three diamond accents. Price: £199.

7. Best Women’s Watch 2021 from FREDERIQUE CONSTANT: Vitality Smartwatch

A smartwatch is a great choice for anyone active. However, rather than a watch with a screen, the Frederique Constant  Vitality Smartwatch  is a horological smartwatch. Therefore it has all the beauty of an analogue watch, but is packed with great smartwatch features. The Vitality embraces a major innovation: an integrated sensor which can measure the heart rate directly from the wrist. Additionally, it features a digital dial revealed when you push the crown. The digital display allows access to information such as the heart rate, the activity tracker, a second time zone and even the last five messages from your favourite apps (amongst other things). Furthermore, the Vitality Smartwatch is connected to the Frederique Constant Smartwatch App (for iOS and Android). Consequently, all functionalities can be configured directly via the app. Priced at £795, the Vitality Smartwatch is a classically elegant watch bursting with hidden technology .
