1. Day-Date President for Mother’s Day 2016

The ultimate statement of prestige, the Rolex Day-Date is the quintessential luxury dress watch from the famed Swiss watchmaker. Nicknamed the “President” because of both its bracelet style and because it has been the watch of choice for so many global leaders, the most prestigious watch among Rolex’s collections is exclusively crafted in either gold or platinum.

A Pink Gold Rolex Day-Day President, a perfect gift.

Although originally developed as a gent’s watch, the Rolex President’s 36mm case is also ideally suited for a lady’s wrist. The Day-Date line is versatile with a wide range of dial colors, hour-marker styles, bezel variations, and precious metals options, each with the characteristic day-of-the-week and date-of-the-month windows on the dial. A great way to add a distinct style to the Day-Date is to switch out its iconic semi-circular three-piece links President bracelet with a leather strap for a timepiece tailored just for mom.

A men’s Rolex platinum Day-Date President can also be worn by a lady.

2. Pearlmaster

When only diamonds will do, the Rolex Pearlmaster is a top choice for moms. Both a piece of jewelry and a watch, the Pearlmaster is only ever fashioned from 18k yellow, pink, or white gold and is always adorned with diamonds or other precious gems such as rubies or sapphires. Equipped with a date window at 3 o’clock that is magnified by the Cyclops lens attached to the sapphire crystal, the Pearlmaster is not only beautiful but practical too.

The distinguishing characteristic of Rolex’s jewelry watch collection is its feminine solid gold five-piece rounded links Pearlmaster bracelet. The timepiece is offered in three different case sizes (29mm, 34mm, and 39mm), and other variations include a selection of dial colors and materials and a range of index and numeral styles.

3. Yacht-Master

Sporty, yet supremely luxurious, the Yacht-Master offers a casual chic look for mom. Available in a range of metals, including stainless steel, gold, platinum, and two-tone versions, in addition to four sizes, from a small 29mm to a large 40mm and medium 35mm and 37mm in between, there’s no lack of options when selecting a Yacht-Master for her.

Rolex platinum and stainless steel Yacht-Master is the watch if you’re looking for a casual chic look.

Some popular references of the Yacht-Master include the Rolesium, which is a mix of stainless steel and platinum, the Rolesor, which is the combination of gold and stainless steel, and the latest version in pink gold, with a black ceramic bezel and black Oysterflex rubber strap.

4. Lady Datejust

The Lady Datejust collection from Rolex is the quintessential classic luxury dress watch for women that is timeless and elegant. With so many variations within the family of feminine timepieces, mom would be spoilt for choice. For those who prefer a more traditional look, the two-tone combination with a fluted bezel is a great pick, while for a more contemporary aesthetic, a stainless steel version with a smooth domed bezel and simple dial is a sure bet.

Rolex Lady Datejust

The Rolex Lady Datejust is the quintessential classic luxury dress watch for women.

The Oyster case of the Lady Datejust is offered in 26mm, 28mm, and 31mm sizes, while bracelet options include both the three-link Oyster bracelet, three-link President bracelet, or five-link Jubilee bracelet. As its name suggests, each piece in the Datejust line features the date window at 3 o’clock with a magnification lens for easier reading.

5. Rolex Daytona Cosmograph

The king (or queen) of all chronograph watches, the famous Rolex Daytona is the right choice for a mom who wants to wear an oversized luxury sports watch. There are so many references to choose from among this legendary chrono collection that selecting just one may be a difficult task. From stainless steel to solid gold, and everything in between, there’s a Daytona for every taste.

Rolex pink gold Daytona

Rolex pink gold Daytona is a great watch for those who like large case sizes.

The Daytona’s 40mm sized Oyster case with its screw-down crown and duo of pushers certainly would wear large on a lady’s wrist, however, this is a big trend right now with fashionistas everywhere donning big timepieces. No longer just reserved for the guys, the sleek watch inspired by motor racing looks just as sharp when part of a woman’s outfit.

Mother's Day 2016

While large on a lady, they can still look amazing.

Take my advice and don’t leave shopping for a Mother’s Day gift to the last minute. Get it right, make it special, and most importantly, get it on time.
