Historically, the watch industry has often been male-centric. The most significant innovations were first introduced in men's watches before gradually spreading to all available models. This has resulted in women's watch options being sidelined, relegating them to a small number of options in terms of timepieces available on the market.

This situation has resulted in a neglect of women in the world of watchmaking, with offers often limited in terms of styles, functions and designs adapted to their needs and tastes.

For decades, the Women's watches have often been reduced to simple accessories fashion rather than functional and sophisticated timepieces. Choices were often limited, with a predominance of watches that were smaller, adorned with jewels, and sometimes perceived as less technical than those of their male counterparts.
