There are some fashion standards that will always be with us: jeans are here to stay, for instance, and for women the Little Black Dress is a must-have in the wardrobe. But what about watches? When it comes to men’s watches there is s set distinction between the dress watch – slim, often gold, simple and classic face – and the more sporting watch with its rugged attributes and multitude of features. But for women, the choice has not been that great – until recently!

Take a beautiful and traditional watch for women such as the Citizen Ecodrive EW9392-72E EW9392-72 Ladies Watch, a wonderfully styled model from one of the world’s most prevalent makers of fine watches. The classic rectangular face, gold plated bracelet and simple, understated face are as you would expect. Wear this with the aforementioned dress and it will match perfectly, designed as it is for a stylish, simple yet classy look. It’s a watch for all occasions, one that would look great in the office or for drinks after work.

But sometimes a girl wants something a little bit different, something that stands out for another reason. That’s where the amazing Casio Baby G Shock Watch BGA-200-4E makes its entrance. This simply outlandish, bright pink square faced watch with its resin case and strap is something to behold, a brilliant, adventurous and fun watch that takes modern design and gives it a serious shake. It’s not for shrinking violets, but that is the point. Think of the impact this would make if worn with the Little Black Dress – it would certainly be a talking point!

This is what is needed in women’s watches – a little bit of innovation and daring that moves the theme away from the norm. Of course, we’re not saying that stylish watches for women such as the Citizen Eco-Drive Quartz EW1782-04B with its pretty round face and rose gold detailing have had their day; far from it, for classically styles wrist watches for ladies will always have their place in the market. It’s just that it’s a good feeling, once in a while, to do something a little bit daring, to take a chance on a more original and innovative look that will make others notice.

There’s something to be said for Casio’s desire to make something ‘new’ and fresh, and it is a company that has a history of broaching new ideas, but the question remains: are you brave enough to go there?
