Why Women's Watches Are Getting Smaller

Post by Darksider » April 27th 2016, 3:16pm

For those keeping an eye on women’s watch trends, the buzzword is smaller. In a slow move away from the past decade’s large (and oversized) watches, women’s watches seem to be scaling down in size—a trend that may offer a bit more femininity.

Recently, Baume & Mercier unveiled the smaller-sister version of its highly successful Promesse line. The Petite Promesse— inspired by the individual styles of the 1970’s—is a 22 mm watch (compared to its “bigger” sisters of 34 and 36mm). To put this into perspective, that means the Petite Promesse measures just 0.866 inches in diameter—just over half an inch, as compared to the 1.4-inch diameter of its largest sister. The watches are offered in bright orange, bold blue or stainless steel.

Things will cycle around as people experience diminishing returns for any given trend and move the other way for a time. Rinse and repeat.

I like my broads chunky. The more the cushion, the better the pushin'.




Just so lurkers won't think you are crass, abrasive, and hostile to the fairer sex allow me to explain that you mean this by your last churlish statement.

You prefer a large cushion case with a push/pull crown
