Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re in doubt about which gift you should give that special someone – or yourself – why not consider a watch? No matter your budget and the style you prefer, there are many options out there, meaning you’ll find the one that you absolutely love.

A watch is a true statement piece, especially because of its symbolism and, oftentimes, emotional significance. Also a fashionable accessory, a beautifully-made watch is something that every man can appreciate.


OMEGA Planet Ocean Master Coaxial GMT Deep Black

A stunning watch, the OMEGA Planet Ocean Master Coaxial GMT Deep Black watch is everything you could ever want. Its first remarkable feature is its deep black colour, a tone created to match the ocean’s darkness.

This powerful watch is perfect for divers, as it can be worn at a pressure of up to 60 bar, or 600 metres. The luminescence on the dials and numbers allows you to explore the depths of the ocean more easily, and the lock for the caseback, called ceramic Naiad locking system, ensures that all engravings remain oriented with the rest of the watch.

The OMEGA Planet Ocean Master Coaxial GMT Deep Black is also powered by the OMEGA Master Chronometer, meaning it’s passed eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer

This timeless watch is perfect for anything who loves both style and function. The Rolex Explorer highlights everything the Swiss brand is known for: reliability, precision, beauty and hi-tech. Ideal for adventurous men, you can expect materials that are highly resistant to corrosion and can be easily polishable.

No matter where you take it, the watch will maintain its beauty even in the severest of environments. The iconic Rolex symbol sits against a sea of blacks, which perfectly complements the stainless steel of the case and the strap. With luminescent numerals, the watch is designed to be read in the dark as well, something that explorers will no doubt love.

The Oysterlock folding clasp of the bracelet allows the watch to remain on your wrist without being accidentally opened, and its aesthetics and technology are matched only by how comfortable it is to wear. The Rolex Explorer is a certified Swiss chronometer, as it successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Black Phantom

The stunning Aquaracer collection is truly one-of-a-kind, and the Black Phantom watch represents it perfectly. This timepiece comes in all black and can withstand diving environments up to 300 metres, thanks to the incredible reliability and precision of its technology.

The anti-reflective sapphire crystal is also scratch resistant, so you don’t have to worry about taking the watch to harsher environments. The dial of this striking watch is sandblasted anthracite, with a horizontal streak effect, and it comes with luminescent markers to aid under water.

The bracelet is black nylon with grey stitching and black lining, and it has a folding clasp made from black titanium carbide coated titanium with safety push-buttons. An unmissable watch and the perfect Christmas gift!

Breitling Galactic Unitime

A truly aesthetic masterpiece, the Galactic Unitime is an innovative and gorgeous creation from Breitling. The smooth bezel is made from tungsten carbide, a composite material that allows the watch to be highly resistant to scratches.

The contemporary appearance of the Galactic Unitime gives it a unique touch, as does the filigree-worked globe pattern on the dial. This world timer watch is not a chronograph, and allows you to see different timezones at the same time. The disc also tells you if it’s night or day. These features make this futuristic watch a must-have for travellers and explorers!

With a water resistance for up to 100 metres, and the option to choose strap material from leather, diver pro or pilot, as well as the ability to keep all world times in sync, you can be confident that this stunning watch is truly an engineering feat.

Investing in the ultimate watch is always a great option! Timepieces can add to any smart outfit and complement any fashion statement – and can be worn by anyone, whether they lead an adventurous life and need to rely on a sturdy watch, or they have board meetings to attend on a daily basis.
