FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Ladies Quartz Formula One Range for 2018

WBJ1312.FC8231  WBJ1311.BA0666  WBJ1317.FC8230  WBJ1416.BA0664  WBJ1411.FC8232

These are the new ladies Formula One quartz watches for 2018. Available in a combination of 32 and 35mm sizes, these represent a distinct modernising of the women's range with what appear to be Panerai style sandwich dials on some of the pieces.

I think the pick of the bunch here is definitely the steel and blue model, and for my money the steel and blue with the bracelet and diamond bezel. I think the least successful would be the black one, it seems a bit anonymous apart from the gold hands and diamond indices, the case just seems to disappear into the background, but maybe it will look better on the wrist and in natural light. Perhaps it's just that it looks like a less exciting version of the black Lady Link that came out recently?

Prices start at £850 for the leather strap models which seems like a good value price point to me.
