Beauties wearing beasts

Although there is a time and place for women to don delicate and feminine timepieces such as the Rolex Lady-Datejust – for an everyday luxury watch, chic ladies everywhere are turning to men’s Rolexes. Especially evident among female celebrities, a man’s Rolex watch as part of a woman’s wardrobe is right on-trend. And it’s not just the gold President variety either; Hollywood starlets are often seen sporting larger Rolexes such as the Daytona, Submariner, and Milgauss.

Once regarded as much too big for a ladies’ wrist, a 40mm Rolex actually looks fantastic when worn by women. A particularly popular model among famous females is the Everose pink gold Daytona as seen on the wrists of Victoria Beckham, Sofia Vergara, Paris Hilton, and members of the Kardashians. This is probably because the overall masculine style of the Rolex Daytona chronograph is softened when crafted in warm rose gold. Supermodel Elle Macpherson is also a fan of the Daytona, but she prefers the full yellow gold models with a number of them in her collection, including some vintage versions. Style maven and socialite Olivia Palermo is also a Rolex Daytona owner and hers is a stainless steel version outfitted with a mother-of-pearl dial and brown leather strap.

Ladies Watch

The Rolex Submariner has been the men’s quintessential luxury diving watch for decades, but there are plenty of women who appreciate it too. Superstar actresses Sharon Stone and Drew Barrymore wear the classic stainless steel Submariner with the black bezel and black dial. On the other hand, celeb chef Ingrid Hoffman opts for the green anniversary Submariner for a pop of color. The stunning Charlize Theron also wears a Rolex diver’s watch, but hers is the even larger 44mm Rolex Deep-Sea, built to withstand extreme depths.

Another men’s Rolex collection that has found a home in women’s jewelry boxes is the 40mm Milgauss, originally created for scientists, doctors, and engineers who spent much of their time exposed to magnetic fields. Gauss is the unit used to measure magnetic density and the Rolex Milgauss is resistant to 1,000 gauss. Jennifer Aniston owns a custom-made blackout version of the Milgauss, while hotel heiress Nicky Hilton wears the stainless steel with a black dial version.

There are many women who have worn a Milgauss and make it into a ladies watch.

The Rolex Milgauss is a watch forged for the scientists who are exposed to gauss which made watches dysfunctional.

Aside from celebs, non-famous, yet ultra fashionable, women are also rocking men’s Rolex watches. The oversized timepiece trend has been around for a while and it doesn’t look like it’ll be going away anytime soon. A lady who pairs her outfits with a 40mm Rolex watch is undeniably making a strong fashion statement.

According to a recent luxury goods report, one of the hottest Rolex watch trends is women sporting 40mm timepieces. Instead of women settling for a Ladies Rolex DateJust, President, or Yachtmaster, it is becoming quite common for them to seek out a Men’s Rolex Daytona, Men’s Rolex President, Men’s Rolex Milgauss, and Men’s Rolex Submariner watches.

Superstar Jennifer Aniston is regularly seen wearing her classic 40mm Rolex President in 18k yellow gold with Champagne stick dial. The watch leaves an instant impression, especially when worn on a slender wrist. Other stars that have been seen wearing the President Rolex with a Champaign stick dial include Reese Witherspoon, Portia de Rossi, Hillary Duff, and Victoria Beckham.

A Ladies Watch for the CEO's.

A Rolex President Day-Date 40 is often seen as a watch that represents powerful men, but recently ladies have been joining the club.

The Rolex Daytona (often a favorite of Rolex collectors around the world) is owned by Jillian Michaels, Sofia Vergara, Tara Reid, and Vanessa Bryant. The Daytona’s appeal resides in its high quality precious metals, elegantly styled dial, and precision. Additionally, its rare nature is quite appealing to those looking to break the mold.

For those seeking a ruggedly elegant watch, the Rolex Submariner is a top pick. Superstars Cameron Diaz, Sharon Stone, and Vanessa Redgrave prefer its classic black dial with luminescent hour markers and stainless steel bracelet. A growing number of women are realizing that the Submariner Rolex doesn’t only belong to the likes of James Bond and his male fans. Women can utilize the watch just as effectively as they adventure through life.

A Rolex Datejust, Submariner, and Milgauss can be worn by women.

Any of the Rolex Datejust, Submariner, and Milgauss can be an ideal watch for women.

The Rolex Milgauss is a growing trend for women. Jennifer Aniston recently put away her Rolex President to wear a blacked-out PVD Rolex Milgauss. The exciting watch is built to withstand a magnetic flux density of 1000 gauss. While most individuals never come close to that much magnetic energy in their lifetime, the Rolex Milgauss offers the ultimate in precision and durability.

These are only a handful of Rolex watch models that are increasingly being enjoyed by women around the world. Leading trend experts have predicted that oversized luxury watches are here to stay. Not only do oversized pre-owned Rolex watches make a statement, there are numerous models and designs from which women can choose. No longer are women constrained to small watch cases and dainty designs.
