The best part about a two-tone watch is that there is no need to think twice about out it matches with the rest of your jewelry and accessories. Typically combining precious gold with sturdy stainless steel, a two tone watch offers the wearer the best of both worlds. It’s a little like your dependable little black dress–a two tone watch goes with everything and is always appropriate.
However, these days, it is not just yellow gold and steel that are being brought together in a watch, but also rose gold and steel. Beautiful, practical, and luxurious, here are some of the best two tone watches for women we love right now.
Two Tone Cartier Panthere Watch for Women
Cartier is known to make some of the most popular luxury watches for women out there. From the classic Tank to the modern Balloon Bleu, the French maison understands how to create chic ladies’ timepieces. One of the best two tone watches for women Cartier makes, however, is the Panthere watch.
Born in the 1980s, the Panthère de Cartier watch collection illustrates what Cartier does best–distinctly shaped watches that effortlessly blend elegance and boldness. From the square case topped with a square bezel to the brick-lay style link bracelet, the two tone Cartier Panthere watch brings together yellow gold and stainless steel in a gorgeous way.
The dial of this two tone Panthere watch is signature Cartier with its white background, black Roman numerals, blue sword-shaped hands, and discreet date window. Plus, there’s also the familiar blue cabochon-cut stone on the winding crown.
The two tone Cartier Panthere watch for women is a classic in the luxury watch space. So much so that Cartier decided to revive the collection in 2017 and today offers a huge range of new models for a new generation. Yet, the classic yellow gold and stainless steel edition is the quintessential version of Cartier Panthere, making it one of the best ladies’ two tone watches to own.
Two Tone Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Watch for Women
Although Jaeger-LeCoultre is famous for their rectangular Reverso watches, the famed watchmaker does make a wide variety of round watches too. Launched in 2012, the Rendez-Vous collection houses stunning round women’s watches from Jaeger-LeCoultre. While it’s loosely based on the round case of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Master collection of men’s watches, the Rendez-Vous offers plenty of graceful feminine details.
This particular two tone Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous watch marries cool stainless steel, warm rose gold, and gleaming diamonds in a striking fashion. The two tone case with a rose gold winding crown is accented with a diamond-set bezel, while the mostly steel five-link bracelet flaunts rose gold details.
The white guilloché dial of the stainless steel and rose gold Rendez-Vous complements the metal mixing of the watch perfectly. There are the large rose gold hands, the oversized rose gold Arabic numerals serving as hour markers, and the rose gold numerals on the date indicator above 6 o’clock.
More and more luxury watch brands are mixing rose gold and stainless steel as their two tone option, and we love it. One look at this modern Jaeger-LeCoultre ladies’ Rendez-Vous watch and it’s easy to understand why we think it’s one of the best two tone watches for women to wear right now.
Two Tone Bulgari Tubogas Watch for Women
The Bulgari Tubogas is a flexible band–used in both the house’s jewelry pieces and watches–intricately built and comfortable to wear. Inspired by gas pipes, the Tubogas has been part of the Bulgari design language for decades.
For a retro take on the two tone women’s watch, this stainless steel and yellow gold Bulgari Tubogas watch hits all the right style notes.
Firstly, there’s the small yellow gold case engraved with the famous BVLGARI BVLGARI double logo on the bezel followed by the sleek black dial with yellow gold details. However, the most striking feature of the watch is, of course, the two tone Tubogas style band with alternating steel and yellow gold components.
Part timepiece part industrial-inspired fine jewelry, the Bulgari Tubogas is an attractive piece of wristwear from the illustrious Italian watch and jewelry brand. If you favor unique timepieces that stand out, the Bulgari Tubogas is one of the best two tone watches for women to consider.
Two Tone Rolex Datejust Watch for Women
If there’s one luxury watch brand that’s synonymous with producing the finest two tone timepieces, it’s Rolex. In fact, Rolex even has its own name for mixing metals on a single watch–Rolesor. Rolex watches can come in yellow Rolesor, white Rolesor, and Everose Rolesor. Everose is Rolex’s proprietary rose gold alloy that guarantees to always keep its beautiful luster.
Yellow gold and stainless steel Rolex watches may be more ubiquitous, however, the contrast of stainless steel and rose gold is fresh and modern. Take this two tone stainless steel and Everose gold Rolex Datejust 31 for instance. An incredible luxury watch to enjoy every day, the 31mm steel Oyster case boasts a precious rose gold winding crown and rose gold bezel dotted with diamond accents.
The black dial is home to rose gold Roman numerals, including a diamond pavé “VI,” and matching rose gold hands. Naturally, as the name of the model suggests, there’s the date window at 3 o’clock made all the more legible thanks to the Cyclops lens on the sapphire crystal. Furthermore, the Oyster bracelet continues the two tone design by including center rose gold links flanked by steel ones.
When it comes to quality, prestige, and name recognition, it’s hard to deny that Rolex leads the way in making the best two tone watches for women. Especially since all their modern women’s watches run on self-winding mechanical movements–not a common feature unfortunately in ladies timepieces!
