The discussion of “genderless” watches has never been stronger than it is now. Whether it’s because of the articles or current political and social trends impacting each industry, the conversation appears here to stay. Will the concept of a genderless watch industry revolutionize the way we see and wear watches? Personally, I hope not. I don’t see gendered design as problematic as long as the right to choose remains.

How can we treat all sexes more inclusively and realistically? In a world where people express themselves through social media, different styles, and choices, authorized dealers and brands need to reorganize the brick-and-mortar store experience. A genderless merchandising model is the only way to go. In the end, we want to get our dream watches that are fully aligned with our own set of aesthetic codes without being judged.

Like everyone else, before any purchase, I consider different options. However, one fact remains stubbornly unchanged: I always end up with a ladies’ watch. Why? Firstly I prefer them over men’s watches. Secondly, after finding my signature watch — the Omega Ladymatic — it’s really difficult to be attracted by other designs. Nevertheless, through years of watch adventures, there are some men’s watches I’ve considered and still love to this day.  And that’s why I’ve created the list of seven men’s watches I would like to wear as a woman!

Omega Globemaster

7. Omega Globemaster

The coolest dress watch that Omega has on offer takes the last place on this list. I can recall myself considering the steel Omega Globemaster but the ladies’ Constellation won my heart. What I love the most about the Globemaster are the steel, fluted bezel, and the pie-pan dial.

When it was released in 2015, obviously the watch enthusiasts discussed the “resemblance” to the Rolex’ Datejust. That always felt a bit like a forced controversy to me, given the fact the Omega fluted bezel has been around since the ’60s and emerged in an era where copying the Datejust would not have guaranteed the same kind of payoff as it would today. I find this particular collection charming. Also if you opt for the bracelet, this watch will bring a laid-back twist to any outfit.

Blancpain Tribute To Fifty Fathoms MilSpec

6. Blancpain Tribute To Fifty Fathoms MilSpec

In the summer, I love having fun at the beach. The positive vibes and energy I get while trying out different water sports always makes me wonder about getting a cool dive watch. Blancpain is the brand that always springs to mind. I wish its watches would get more hype! I must say I love the Blancpain Tribute To Fifty Fathoms MilSpec for all its details! The vintage typography, the cool “Tribute to MIL-SPEC” indicator on the dial, and the deep black, sapphire bezel make this design so unbelievably appealing to me. Unfortunately, the watch released in 2017 was limited to 500 pieces and it’s simply unavailable. 

Rolex Yacht-Master 16622

5. Rolex Yacht-Master

RJ’s Rolex Yacht-Master 16622 has hooked me just after I tried it out! It’s the coolest Rolex available on the market and the only Rolex I like. The combination of platinum and steel looks so incredible in the sun. The 40mm case sits comfortably on my petite wrist. The fact anyone can easily get one without overpaying is another advantage. However, I still can’t decide which I prefer more — the 16622 or the 116621. 

Patek Philippe Aquanaut

4. Patek Philippe Aquanaut 

The Nautilus or the Aquanaut? That is the question! Both are stunners but only one can get fourth place on the list of seven men’s watches I would like to wear as a woman! Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman I admire, owns the rose gold Nautilus. Its sleek bracelet is out of this world! And while Rosie switched me on to that kind of sporty Patek Philippe being worn on a woman’s wrist, I just can’t deny the fact that I love Aquanaut more. It’s more charismatic. And even as a dial purist, I’m amazed by the elegant way of indicating the date! The rubber embossed strap is another strong element of the design. Not to mention the three-dimensional finishing of the case — stunning and weirdly underrated.

Omega Speedmaster 321.009

3. Omega Speedmaster Ed White 321

And this is how we reached my top three! Some of you might be surprised this is not the only holy grail on this list. The Omega Speedmaster Ed White 321 possesses the legendary caliber 321, the straight lug case, and the coolest Speedmaster bracelet that has been ever made. There are many reasons why I love this one and probably one day I will get one. It fits my wrists as the case measures only 39.7mm. The details are true to the original 105.003. look gorgeous. Seriously I don’t see any reason for not having it.

2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

I had no doubts, of course, that sooner or later the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak will be mine! I’m a secret admirer of this beauty! With all my love for stunning bracelets, this one is so timeless. Better still, it has become synonymous with AP’s legendary style! The precision that has been put into this concept is so ravishing. The incredible finish, those brushed and polished edges, are truly next-level. There are so many aspects that make this design iconic. Well, I will probably get for myself the 34mm version but it doesn’t matter. This watch deserves the hype it gets!

Omega Seamaster 300

1 . Omega Seamster 300

Finally, first place belongs to the Omega Seamaster 300. It’s my dream watch but, unfortunately, I can’t wear it as the Seamaster 300 is too big for my wrist. It would be impossible to mention a single thing I dislike. Instead, I’d rather tell you why I love it so much. First of all, the bracelet! The polished center links are on fire! Then the black ceramic bezel with LiquidMetal diving scale and the black dial with patina-vibes reinforcing the vintage edge… wow. Undoubtedly one day I will buy this watch anyway if not for me, for someone who deserves it! 

Wearing a watch you love is an act of self-expression! Hopefully, you enjoyed my list of seven men’s watches I would like to wear as a woman! Let me know what your signature watch is in the comment section.
