The 10 Best women's watches

Time for a change? From dive-proof to dainty, here's our pick of bang up-to-the-minute wrist candy

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs

£185,watchstation.co.uk

The rubber strap is chunky and spiked with pins to match the golden studs on the face, and the numbers seem to poke through from below to give a 3D effect.

2. Sheen by Casio

£225, hsamuel.co.uk

Casio may be known for its digital stretch-band watches, but it does much smarter options too – this even has Swarovski Element crystals on the hour.

3. Omega

£5,460, 08452723100

Part of the Constellation range, this Chronometer with diamond-dot mother-of-pearl dial is one of the latest, most dazzling, designs to join the collection.

4. Gucci

£635, 0845 674 8224

Designed by the brand's creative director Frida Giannini, it's part of a new watch collection, all with the double G design and a variety of sizes and strap options.

5. Michael Kors

£209, watchstation.co.uk

Champagne taste with a beer pocketbook? Then the Michael Kors collection might go some way to quench your thirst. Everything from classic, to quirky, via glitzy.

6. Timex

£115, thewatchhut.co.uk

Chiming perfectly with this season's preoccupation with all things retro, this vintage-inspired watch comes complete with trompe l'oeil wood effect dial.

7. Fossil

£95, fossil.co.uk

You can't really go wrong with a timeless classic such as this leather-strapped watch. It's pleasingly unfussy, with a clean face and date display.

8. Nixon

£130, my-wardrobe.com

A classic-looking timepiece with a bit of a difference. The strap and surround is made of tortoiseshell acetate, a welcome change to the sometimes-stuffy metal finishes.

9. Hermes

£1,800, hermes.com

Not what you would describe as a bargain, but seen on the wrists of countless celebrities and fashion editors. The double wrap "Cape Cod" design is a star in itself.

10. Chanel

£4,125, chanel.com

As chic as a little black dress, but with all the modern technology. It's scratch- and water-resistant (to 200mtrs) – to ensure its longevity. The fashion fanatic's choice.
