In recent decades, mechanical watches have been designed more often with men in mind than with women in mind. When watches are designed for women they often are diamond encrusted and in garish cases that suggest women only care about watches as jewellery, ignoring female watch collectors who appreciate the complexities of mechanical watch design just as much as their male counterparts. For this group, unisex watches are recommended over watches targeted purely at women. You’re going to get exposure to a lot more interesting  watches with more complications and variety than the patronising assortment of women’s watches on the market.
What makes a watch unisex? Just the fact that it can be worn by any gender. In practical terms, this means that the overall design of the watch is not too masculine, nor too feminine. We covered characteristics of the latter above and masculine watches can be identified by oversized case designs, chunky and angular builds, and more complicated dials. Currently most men prefer cases 42 mm to 44 mm in width, but a more traditionally sized case in the 35 mm to 38 mm range gives a watch more of a universal wearability. There are some ubiquitous and elegant pieces like the  Cartier TankRolex Day-Date, and  Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso that are often worn by both men and women, but here are a few more good unisex options:

If you’re looking for a refined dress watch that you can wear to the office, this piece by  Tudor might fit the bill. The  Tudor Style in the 38 mm case size is a great option. This watch is fitted with a Tudor Calibre 2824 automatic movement and has a 38-hour power reserve. It is water resistant to 100 M and has a sapphire crystal, giving it more than enough durability to last through the toughest days at the office. Depending on your tastes, the watch comes with the option of a black leather strap or a steel bracelet and there are a range of case materials to choose from. Although the 38 mm has the most universal appeal, the Tudor Style comes in 41 mm, 34 mm, and 28 mm cases as well. A great option from the Swiss manufacturer known as Rolex’s little brother.

Breitling Transocean Chronograph 38

Considering  Breitling is perhaps best known for its oversized pilot’s watches, the  Transocean Chronograph 38 is a refreshing offering. As the name would suggest, it has a 38 mm case, making it well sized for both men and women. It is powered by the Breitling 41 automatic movement and is available in steel, steel and gold, and 18k red gold on either a brown leather or Milanese steel bracelet. What’s most interesting about this watch is the chronograph complication. This, combined with the paired sub-dials and the tachymeter scale on the dial of the watch give it real links to the world of aviation.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M Co-Axial 36.25 MM

The  Omega Seamaster is one of the most famous dive watches around and offers a more streamlined aesthetic than its nearest rival, the Rolex Submariner. This version of the  Seamaster, available in a 36.25 mm case, is sized so that it can be worn by anyone. With 300 M of water resistance it will suit the recreational diver and can be worn anywhere and with anything. The blue dial gives it some character and as a certified chronometer it is as accurate as you can get with a mechanical watch.

Above are a few options for someone looking for a true unisex watch. There are plenty more out there and as you search for the best option for you, take into account the case size in relation to the size of your wrist, where and how you’ll be wearing the watch, and what you most value in a watch’s design. With these in mind you’re sure to find a great mechanical watch you can enjoy for years to come.
