Ladies' Taste in Men's Watches

Recommended Posts

All seems as I would expect, except for the positioning of the Reverso (perhaps it's too effete).

(This article is on (German, I think) ladies' views on the watches men wear when on a date)

whos she?

looks like a marketing exercise done by a man to be sent to women in order to get them to buy what they want them to this crimbo hence none of the blokes want a reverso because it looks like a womans watch weird that not that many want the sub or speedy either and would rather have a longines...goes with on here really doesnt it?...

"thus it has been demonstrated".

It would be most interesting to see which cross section of society were polled for this article. 

A few years ago "Wag's" were buying 36mm Explorers. I was in Laing's in Glasgow when one (would be ?) asked for an Explorer, by name, and the look of total disappointment on her face when it was produced was hilarious. High deflection on the Shallow Meter.

By the look of that survey, someone related to the CEO of Nomos.

So basically top of the list is a watch Nomos tried to knacker Stowa over?

Please Nomos, just stop with the nauseating guff, your fooling nobody.

Were the WAGs buying for themselves, or their fellows?

And, to @Nigelp's point, with nice "shirt and tie" watches at the top, and clunky watches lower down, I very much doubt this was set up by fellows. I'm a member of Uhrforum.de, and can testify that they are just as besotted with divers as the denizens of UK forums.

With the exception of the Datejust I would put all of those watches in the dislike half if I was considering one for myself.

If my partner was buying  or wearing them I would have the Submariner in the like half and perhaps the Navitimer

Would be interesting to see the demographic of the ladies surveyed here. And how many were surveyed. 

It surprises me that many would actually know these exact models

If you'd read the article (by following the link), you would know the answers to at least some of the questions, Nigel.

For themselves, 36mm Explorers also became very much in demand with Japanese female fashionistas around the same time.

Must admit though, looks way much better on this wrist than it does on mine.

Yep, I mean Nomos top of the list Junghans third.  I doubt most men never mind women have even heard of either.  And of all the Nomos watches not the larger cased Zurich but a 35mm Bauhaus knock off watch.  Methinks someone is looking to shift some stock from the store rooms.

Both above Rolex, Omega, Breitling and Tag :laughing2dw:

Keep dreaming.

As for the Christmas present can you imagine it?

”Well dear, you know you have been asking me for a Rolex or one of those Omega diver thingies or one of those big weird looking Breitling watches with all the sub dials nobody used and the thing around the edge nobody understands?”

(rolls eyes)

”You mean a Navitimer?”

”Yeah that’s it (rolls eyes and half listens)

”Well I got you this”

(Hands over present to excited chubby middle aged paws of husband who excitedly unwraps Christmas gift dreaming of showing off to his mates down the pub and in his sole destroying office job he hates)

Wrapping paper off and there is a Junghans max bill, Nomos or a Reverso.

Tears of disappointment mixed with guilt fill up as he thanks her then slumps off to the kitchen for a drink thinking “Christ, it’s only half ten”

Think actually it was me that missed your link rather than Nigel. Had a read and it would appear that the models used were preselected by the magazine rather than by those ladies (only 100), surveyed. Explains a lot. Cheers

i think i know now why i didnt understand the choices, it seems they are from a womens perspective how on earth are we supposed to understand that? Im still reading....

i get it, if i want to pull a german bird i wear a Junghans Max Bill 

 

 

 

still reading....

funny

There is a certain appeal with Rolex for men that does not translate for every woman. 

thats @BondandBigM stuffed then as far as german birds go. 

bond you are to flashy mate

Rolex timepieces can be perceived as too flashy 

Regarding consent for dates

 

were on dodgy ground now 

is that what men who wear Panerai are like?

isnt it just another take a pop at a submariner job?

The Rolex Submariner is perhaps the most famous dive watch there is. In this poll, one would expect a higher placement for this timeless classic or at the very least, it would gain mostly approval from the ladies. To the contrary of our belief, only 53% of our respondents like this iconic timepiece and just as many participants wish that their friend or date would wear the watch to a get-together. That is enough for a middle placement in our ranking, just ahead of another great classic in the world of watches.

im being cynical now sorry did you say this was a German survey? :laugh:

The Speedmaster Professional does significantly better than the Rolex Submariner in the question whether you would like to see the watch on the wrist of a date: with 60% consent, it ranks higher in approval for dates than it does regarding the design appeal.
