When searching for a luxury ladies’ watch, there is no better brand to start with than Rolex.
Exquisitely designed and built to the highest of high standards, Rolex has perfected the art of watchmaking. Not only is a Rolex watch built to last, but their female watch options are celebrated across the world for their elegance, class and effortless beauty.
As well as being a luxury timepiece worth collecting, Rolex continues to deliver the ultimate style for female wearers, creating watches that can be both treasured and adored.
But while you may be well aware of the perks of investing in a ladies’ Rolex watch, many of us are uncertain just how much a ladies’ Rolex is going to cost. Today, we’re going to be taking a closer look into these (incredibly) high-quality timepieces, what to expect and how much they’re going to set you back.
Why choose a ladies’ Rolex watch?
There are many reasons why both men and women opt for Rolex as their timepiece of choice. Not only are these luxury items amazing at holding their value, but Rolex also takes great pride in crafting robust, reliable and incredibly durable luxury watches.
While Rolex is renowned for luxury and style, its features most certainly don’t go unnoticed. Here are some of our favourite ladies’ Rolex watches and what to expect from your next purchase.
Rolex Lady Oyster Perpetual
The Lady Oyster Perpetual was revealed in 1954, as the first Rolex ladies’ watch. Although similar in features to the Oyster Perpetual at the initial stages, it has certainly developed its own unique characteristics since.
With a patented Oyster case and purple dials, this ladies’ Rolex watch continues to get plenty of attention.
Cost: £3,300+ (pre-owned)
Rolex Ladies Yacht-Master models
Many Rolex watches are typically designed for men, or considered unisex. However, the sports chronograph collection is the only one that has models specifically designed for women. First released in 1990, these models also feature a 100-meter waterproof Oyster case, as well as bidirectional rotating time watch bezels that have now graduated to 60 minutes.
Furthermore, they also feature a date window at the signature Rolex position (three o’clock).
Twenty years into Yacht-Master models, they were typically found in three sizes: 40mm, 35mm and 29mm. Both the 35mm and 29mm were targeted toward women. Of course, all had Oyster straps.
In terms of the style of the 35mm and 29mm, these timepieces were sold in full yellow gold, Rolesium and two-tone yellow gold – making them a crucial fashion statement for any female.
Around 2015, Rolex upgraded the Yacht-Master Collection. It was around this time that Rolex put a stop to the 29mm and 35mm editions, replacing them with the Yacht-Master 37 which is ideal for women. In addition to this, Rolex also put a halt to the production of the Yacht-Master models that were in yellow gold and the two-tone yellow gold.
Cost: Many can be found £5,000+
An absolutely timeless and stunningly beautiful watch from Rolex, the Day-Date was first released in 1956, making its debut as the first waterproof and self-winding chronometer wristwatch. After being worn by the 36th President of the United States, its popularity quickly grew, as it picked up the nickname, “the President’s watch”.
In 1977, Rolex released an improved version, containing Calibre 3055. Making telling the time and knowing the date an easy process, Rolex’s Day-Date has become somewhat of an iconic timepiece.
The last update to be done was in 2000, when they came up with Ref. 118238. There were no technical improvements at this time, however, there were other adjustments to the iconic President bracelet.
Today, it is available in a variety of colours, including platinum, rose gold and yellow, as well as featuring different dial variations.
Cost: £14,000 – £24,000
Rolex Lady Datejust
Renowned for its vintage style, the exquisite Ref. 69173 can be found today with dials of your preferred colour choice, as well as the most frequently-seen champagne-coloured edition.
If you’re shopping around for a pre-owned Rolex Lady Datejust, you’ll likely see some variations, with some having diamond indices that make them more valuable.
Looking for a unique style? The Datejust has many dial variations, as well as material variations, for a look that suits you.
