The wrist watch is that rare gift that is stunning and impressive, but also a safe bet. Everyone needs more socks, but give someone a pair of socks for Christmas and watch the look of delight fade from their faces. Everyone needs to be able to tell time, and when you give a beautiful watch, their eyes simply light up.
Whether you’re buying a gift for your wife or your husband, your friend or your co-worker, your brother, your sister, your mom or your dad, a good wrist watch can really create some happy moments. Here are four of the best watches to look out for this Holiday season:
Gucci Women’s G-Timeless
The Gucci G-Timeless model is feminine but not delicate, gorgeous but not showy, and understated but not boring. We like the silver one with gold trim. You can find these in the $400-$800 range depending on style and whether or not you can find a good sale.
Gucci Guccissima Rose Gold Bangle Watch
The elegant face with brings to mind post-war boom era L.A., femme fatales and shadowy detectives lurking the mean streets of Hollywood. Classic yet modern at the same time, the design is feminine yet strong.
An Ebel may be just the thing for the man on your Christmas list. The two tone color scheme is just the thing for the man who doesn’t mind dressing to impress, but would rather not come off as being too vain or flashy. This is a relatively affordable watch, and can even be found for greater discounts if you’re shopping around for Holiday sales on jewelry and wrist watches, or shopping pre-owned.
The silver and black design of this watch, combined with the alligator strap and multiple faces, brings to mind the interior of a high-end luxury car, the kind that they hand-make in Italy for six figures a pop. When you look at this watch, you’ll probably guess that it costs about as much as a luxury car, too. Ranging up to $5,000+, this watch is just the thing if you have a larger budget to spend on Christmas. Again, shopping pre-owned can help you save big time, by shaving hundreds or even thousands off of the retail price for a luxury item that’s built to last.
