Watch It, Ladies

In the past, high-end watches were often seen as a status symbol, particularly among men. 

While men couldn’t exactly rock a designer bag or heels, they could show off their status with a Rolex or Patek Philippe on their wrist. 

Women, on the other hand, had a plethora of accessories to choose from, leaving watches as a more understated choice.

However, women have long been enthusiasts of watches, with many building impressive collections over the years. 

Today, female watch collectors are making their mark in the traditionally male-dominated watch industry, bringing their enthusiasm and expertise to the forefront.
