Whether you’re married or simply together, a watch is the perfect Christmas present for your other half.
With approximately 60% of us now using our phones to see the time rather than the traditional wrist watch, I definitely feel it’s time to revive this classic style, and it’s the perfect opportunity to do something really special for your loved one. The equivalent of diamonds for women has to be a shiny new wrist watch for men.
Most guys love gadgets, and we certainly shouldn’t be relying on our phones in all aspects of our lives. I know we can’t seem to lift our heads up from them most of the time!
In terms of watch buying, it’s definitely worth looking for the really high end watches that will last absolutely YEARS and show that quality too. Whether you go for brand new, or second hand through reputable showrooms such as www.watches-of-switzerland.co.uk, there is so much choice.
To take it back down to basics, and give your other half something he will treasure for years to come, here are some amazing styles:
Omega Seamaster Men’s Watch
This stainless steel masterpiece is in the typical sturdy Omega style. In fact, it’s a watch specifically for divers and water resistant up to 300 metres so you know it’s going to last.
With the beautiful and stylish navy dial along with the flashes of red and white for the hands and detailing, this is super sleek; the type of watch most men will love if your hubby happens to be fussy.
The face is scratch resistant sapphire crystal with a self-winding Co Axial Escapement movement.
Bentley B05 Unitime
This might be a bit of a mouthful, but this black stainless steel watch is not only stunning but one for the gadget king and globe trotter too.
With the sleek black colouring and automatic timing keeping this convenient yet stylish, this is for the business type who doesn’t stop, but how exactly does it work? Powered by an innovative Manufacture Breitling movement with a patented mechanism, the Bentley B05 Unitime displays the time in no fewer than 24 countries.
The James Bond style gadget with the ultimate user-friendly mechanisms…
Bell & Ross BR 123
The technical name isn’t the only futuristic element of this Bell & Ross. The whole look and feel of the Bell & Ross brand is like something out of a sci-fi movie and perfect for those husbands and partners that love the slick and simple approach to jewellery.
The dial, and whole watch, is a dark mysterious grey with the movement being a convenient automatic.
The case material is PVD which gives it that carbon space-age look. This might look very space-aged, but there is also an element of aviation here. With the modern approach to such a classic style, this takes its inspiration from the pilots of the 1940s.
Maurice Lacroix Pontos
All of these have had a futuristic feel to them, but there are also some absolutely stunning traditional style timepiece out there if your other half prefers the traditional patterned leather strap and simple face. In fact, this is a timeless classic that often goes with absolutely everything.
I love this Maurice Lacroix Pontos because it mixes the beautiful traditional style with a modern twist.
The gorgeous deep blue dial colour along with delicate detailing and crisp stainless steel casing is perfect for the guy with ultimate class. With great functionality, simple design and the little dashings of creativity, this is a watch for the fashion conscious and traditionalist.
Tag Heuer Carrera
Another made from sturdy stainless steel built to last, this men’s automatic watch with leather strap include a chronograph as well as date.
Classed as a sports watch, this has durability and is water resistant for up to 100 metres (if your other half happens to be a keen swimmer).
Unlike many functional sports watches, this is also amazingly stylish with the traditional black leather strap and clear sleek dial face.
It doesn’t matter whether your hubby or other half likes sport over style, functionality over fun or traditional over trendy, there are so many styles out there to suit your partner. Whilst most aspects of fashion is definitely still catered towards the females, a stunning watch is where your fella can really come into his own and express his quirky individual sense of style.
Why not organise a trip to your nearest showroom and let him pick it out for himself?
