Christmas is drawing nigh – well sort of. The truth is, once the summer collapses and the inconspicuous coldness of the autumn closes in, we realise we have little to look forward to but Christmas. And so on that note, we plan for the merry period a good few months in advance, eager for the festive celebrations. When it comes to Christmas gifts for your husband, watches are a perfect choice. Here are the pieces we should be looking to buy for our partner’s this Christmas.
Audemars Piguet: Royal Oak
Ok, so I forgot to mention the fact that you might need more than a little bit of money to afford the watches on this list. In fact, you’ll need something close to £22,000 to afford this particular timepiece.
The truth is however, if you have the money, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak is most certainly worth it. This prestige sports model is an absolute classic, with its fine in house movements, octagonal bezel and eight screws.
The best of this year’s version boasts a transparent crystal case back, a beautiful dark brown leather strap, and a black dial colour.
IWC: Big Pilot’s Top Gun
For those seeking a watch a tad simpler, the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun will most certainly do the job. Rugged and manly, without being bold, IWC’s crown jewel combines classic functionality with state-of-the-art technology, modern design elements and high-tech materials.
To be found on www.Watches-of-Switzerland.co.uk , the all black version is my personal favourite.
This is just one of those watches that every man would appreciate as a gift.
One of the greatest sporting moments in history was the teaming up of Oris and Williams F1 for the 2003 Formula 1 season, for this relationship has given the fashion world a range of delightful sporty timepieces.
With a tyre-tread motif rubber strap and cut away hour markers recalling the fast spinning wheels of an F1 car and its speedometer, the Williams is simply a fantastic watch.
One great thing about the Williams is that it costs under a grand!
All in all
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for your boyfriend or husband, but aren’t quite sure on what they’ll like then any one of these three watches will be the perfect choice – for there is no man alive that wouldn’t absolutely love each piece.
