Casio Baby-G collection

Starting off our list is Casio Baby-G collection. Anytime you are talking about top tough watches for women (or Casio G-Shock; toughest watch for men, for that matter), the Casio Baby-G collection has to be brought up.

BA-110 Series - Very Cute

First hitting the marketplace in 1994, Casio come up with a smaller version of G-Shock’s watch called Baby-G. This “Baby G-Shock” have quickly become a trend setter and fashion icon’s for teen girl at that time – and are beloved not only because they are so tough (it’s tough to break them even by driving over them with a truck, and they are about as waterproof as it gets) but also because they look fantastic and stylish at the exact same time.

Baby-G New Series

Baby-G New Series – Sporty look plus stylish style.

The first Baby-G series, the DW-520, not only had G-Shock’s resistance, but also a cute women’s size digital watch with colorful color and fantastic design. Well, these day’s, the very first Baby-G DW-520 is a highly prized collector’s item.

Abington Aviation Series Collection

If you happen to be a pilot, you need to consider about getting your hands on the Abingdon Aviation watch collection. Abingdon watch is one of the toughest watches for women, the models designed especially for women aviators.


You could buy a man’s watch, but it was bulky and black or brown, and you know a MAN’S watch,”Chelsea “Abingdon” Welch

There are no secret many of the so-called “pilot watches” look so big in women wrist, that is why Chelsea “Abingdon” Welch – Pilot and the founder of Abingdon Co, envisioned fully functional pilot’s watch that fits, fashionable, affordable, durable, and, most importantly, made for Women.

Abingdon has come up with some watch models in their Aviation series to fulfill the expectation of their customers – AmeliaJackie, and Katherine.


The Amelia series is known as “The Watch Made for Everyone.” Amelia is comfort, elegance, stainless-steel watch with rotating bezel surrounded with a soft “Croco” Leather strap. It features everything from E6B flight computer functions to Zulu time conversion and dual-time-zone and date windows under a sapphire crystal face.


The price for the Amelia series around $350 USD and it is offered in white and black. Amelia series has a positive five-star review at Amazon because of its elegant look and also for its toughness. See here for read all reviews.

Another Abingdon watches in Aviation series, the Jackie. Jackie brings style and glamour to the Abingdon collection. With a chronograph, date window, 24-hour clock to a mother-of-pearl face, and E6B flight computer function. The Jackie also beautified with 64 shimmering cubic zirconia crystals, which can be replaced with real diamonds if you want to.


The Jackie costs around $600 USD and comes in three colors: Dreamy White, Sunset Pink and Seaplane Green.  You can find Jackie collection for less if you look at the Amazon  – some are below official retail price. See here for current price.

Last but not least Abingdon watch in Aviation series, the Katherine, adds Chronograph with Super Luminova hands and hour markings, genuine Mother of Pearl face, water resistant to 50 Meters including Abingdon patent-pending ALPHABezel.


The Price. The Katherine around $550 USD and comes in many different color and option. However, you also can find it for less if you look at the sellers in the Amazon  – some are below official retail price. See here for more update price.

Abingdon watches, in my opinion, one of the coolest aviator and pilot watches for ladies, yet an elegant aviation themed and sophisticated women watch as well as a candidate of best pilot watches for women. For more detail and in depth features, you can visit their website:

Invicta Women’s SUBAQUA Collection

If you’re not looking for a “sports watch” and want something a little bit more delicate or luxurious – but no less indestructible – you need to think about getting your hands on the Invicta Women’s Subaqua collection.
