How to pick a watch for Mom

How do you pick a watch for Mom? Well no two mothers are alike, so here are six suggestions. Which one is right for your Mom?

The Chic Mom

This mom is a go-getter and her personal style is modern and sleek. What’s her perfect watch? The Patek Philippe Twenty-4, in either steel or rose gold, is modern and elegant, with just enough sparkle to go from a day at the office to cocktails.

The Active Mom

This mom is active all day long, from a morning jog to coaching the school team. She needs a watch that is sturdy and robust, while still being feminine. Rolex is a sure winner for her, especially bracelet styles like the Oyster Perpetual Date Yacht-Master. The Oyster classic is built to withstand the occasional bump or surprise rain shower with ease.

The Multitasker Mom

She’s smart, practical, and always pitching in.  And it all comes from love.  So this mom will appreciate multi-functional watch with a subtle touch of diamonds. The Michele CSX 36 Chronograph fits the bill with incredible style and functionality.

The Creative Mom

She appreciates art and culture and adds a personal touch to everything from her wardrobe to the notes in the lunchboxes. For the creative mom, we love something off the beaten path, like the 18K Franck Muller Long Island.

The Glamorous Mom

Does she love a night on the town? Is her Instagram cooler than yours? This Cartier Panthere, simply oozing with diamonds, might be the one thing that sparkles as brightly as she does!


The Laughing Mom

Are you lucky enough to have a Mom who makes you laugh? Who always looks at the bright side? This Chopard Happy Round Fish will make her smile through the day. The loose ‘happy’ diamonds under the crystal feature a ‘swimming’ fish. And yes, it’s water-resistant to 30m and has a rubber strap that will dive right into the pool!
