Why Men’s Rolex Sport Models Work For Women Too
Rolex Sport Models for Women
It’s been nice to see that brands have been paying closer attention to women’s watches lately. In many ways, it’s a market that’s either typically misunderstood or ignored altogether. But there’s also something very special about classic Rolex sport models and how they can be versatile (and stylish) enough to be worn by women. They offer something beyond the usual “lady’s” watch and serve up a bold, timeless look that’ll match with almost any style. These watches are universal in so many ways and lately, I’ve been spotting some amazing Rolex models on women everywhere. They just, work, and in my opinion, it’s one of the coolest fashion choices a lady can make these days.

The trend is winding down a bit but some brands are still marketing large, overpriced, and forgettable fashion watches to women. Perhaps it’s a logical response to competition from choices like the Apple Watch or the idea that women could potentially see a watch as an accessory of lesser importance. Either way, the effort may prove to be insignificant as buyers of luxury goods become more and more educated about their options. Also, the thirst for vintage can’t be ignored and it’s no wonder that women are also turning to Rolex to find their next awesome, collectible timepieces.
It should also be noted that this article isn’t strictly focusing on the current Rolex women’s line-up. No, we’re talking about the “flagship” sports models typically marketed towards men. Most of these models sit uniformly at 40mm, a size that I find to be often forgotten. The truth is, these measurements and these proportions essentially make Rolex sport models “unisex” in several ways. This begs the question; is there really a place for poorly engineered, overpriced, and over-sized fashion watches marketed to women when there are such universally appealing choices from Rolex?
Still not convinced? Just ask Ellen DeGeneres – a beloved Hollywood actress, television host, and serious Rolex collector. She has been spotted wearing anything from a Paul Newman Daytona, to the all blue Rolex Submariner ref 116619LB, and even the newer Everose Yachtmaster ref 116655. Her style is just undeniable and it really shows you that ladies can rock a mean, full-size Submariner just as well as the guys can. I know this might seem like blasphemy, but how necessary is a dedicated Rolex women’s line when the “men’s” models work so perfectly?
