Women’s Vintage Watches & Pre-owned Designer Watches

The Open for Vintage vintage women’s watch collection offers some serious arm candy.  Whether you are looking for a once in a lifetime purchase or a rare model to add your collection, these beautiful women’s vintage watches are timeless classics.  The beauty of them is that, as well as the excellence of the functionality of the watch, there is the added element of design which can take result in everything from stunningly jewelled creations to garish flights of fancy. 

The 20th century has been an era of extreme achievement for humankind and watches have been created to match these daring exploits.  It was to the wrist of a woman, that Hans Wildorf, founder of Rolex, strapped his first fully waterproof ‘Oyster’ watch in 1927.  Mercedes Gleitze swam the English Channel in October 1927 with her Oyster Rolex keeping perfect time.  A full page advertisement in the Daily Mail followed and the watch gained further kudos when, because of a false claim made against her achievement, Gleitze undertook a ‘verification’ swim in much colder conditions and, while she ultimately had to give up because of the temperature, her watch remained perfect.  In the 1930s aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart wore a Longines Chronograph for her two trans-Atlantic crossings and later an Omega 28.9 chronograph on her final trans-pacific attempt.  There can be no doubt that, however, beautifully designed, these watches matched and surpassed the exterior with the interior micro-engineering.  These women also marked a move towards the wristwatch.  While men had preferred the pocket watch and women the watch pinned as a brooch, wristwatches were the perfect choice for the work and leisure interests of women as their opportunities expanded in the 20th century. 

However, beyond the purely practical, there are lots of pieces to admire and enjoy in women’s designer watches.  From the quirky Hermès collection which form extensions of their most loved designs and handbags with the Médor and the Kelly lock watches, to the classic retro styling of women’s vintage Gucci watches with interchangeable faces and sherry stripes.  From melting vintage YSL heart shaped watches to the chain links, faux pearls or ceramic dials of vintage Chanel.  For luxury, Omega’s beautiful jewelled dress watches are perfect in miniature and Chopard’s ‘happy diamonds’ are an element of fun to an already elegant piece.  Or you might be a purest and a classic Rolex women’s watch is the only choice for you.  Open for Vintage has gathered the best in women’s vintage watches from around the world in our collection.

If women’s watches just don’t quite make the statement you’re looking for, don’t forget to check out our vintage men’s watch collection for plenty more to tempt.
