Yellow Gold Rolex Cellini
If mom prefers full gold Rolex watches, then here’s a beauty for less than $5,000. From its round case to its stunning link bracelet, this Rolex Cellini is entirely craft from 18k yellow gold. The elegant and uncluttered dial houses matching yellow gold Roman numerals, along with a pair of gold hour and minute hands at the center. The quartz movement inside the watch is easy to maintain, as mom won’t have to worry about this Rolex Cellini running out of power if she decides to wear another watch for a few days. The intricate structure of the yellow gold Rolex “Damier” (French for “checkerboard”) bracelet wears like a piece of fine jewelry, and will look absolutely beautiful wrapped around mom’s wrist.
Steel and Platinum Yacht-Master
Casual in design yet luxurious in execution, the ladies’ Rolex Yacht-Master is well suited for moms who love sporty-chic styles. The mix of platinum and stainless steel is simply superb – the steel case and bracelet provide durability, while the sandblasted platinum bezel and dial sparkle in the light. The rotating 60-minute bezel not only looks great with its raised numerals, but it can come in handy if mom needs to time something without having to reach for her phone. Built as a watch to serve an active lifestyle, mom can keep her Rolex Yacht-Master on at the pool, gym, and anywhere else that the day takes her.
Yellow Gold Datejust with Turquoise Leather Strap
For moms who love a splash of color, here is a yellow gold Rolex Lady-Datejust that is fitted with a vibrant turquoise strap and flaunting fresh summer vibes. The case is classic Rolex, from its 18k yellow gold construction to its decorative fluted bezel, to its magnified date window at 3 o’clock. Yet, the addition of the unexpected vibrant strap makes the watch absolutely pop. Want extra points? Give mom this Rolex along with a couple of other strap options, so that she can easily swap out the watch band to suit her current mood and outfit.
Stainless Steel Air-King
If a little black dress is a staple in most women’s wardrobe, then a full stainless steel watch is the equivalent in any watch collection. Understated, tasteful, and versatile, you can’t go wrong with a stainless steel Rolex Air-King, paired with an always-on-trend black dial. The Air-King’s well-proportioned case size will be noticeable on mom’s wrist without looking bulky, and the Oyster link bracelet can be easily sized for a comfortable fit. A modern classic, the minimalist Rolex Air-King will become an essential part of mom’s ensembles.
