Regardless of the religious observances, gifting is always in favor of deepening our connection with others. It’s the token of our gratitude for the joyous events. Well, you already know this: the Christmas and holiday seasons are one with giving presents to relatives, friends, and your sweethearts. The gifts given at Christmas originated as a tribute to the birth of the Son of God by the Three Magi: Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar. Long ago, they went on a journey to the place of Jesus’s birth. Then, the three men gave a variety of gifts as a symbol of gratefulness. Now, the tradition has inspired everyone to hand in sincere presents to one another. The presents include watches for the holiday.
Really? Watches as holiday gift ideas? Yes, the answer is obvious if your significant others love a practical and beautiful timepiece. Unless they have an unpleasant memory with watches, which I doubt the enmity, these pieces are the proper ones to accompany their wrist. Watches have personality, a distinct character that resonates with the wearer. The fun of getting the perfect piece for them is one thing, yet the intention for such a heartfelt gift signifies the importance of your relationship. It doesn’t matter if you choose to love solitude. You can always send the earnest gift to yourself. I’ll share the right, versatile watches for the holiday in case you’re confused to pick one among many.
A dive watch, a bold and sporty blue timepiece
If the person you’re thinking of likes the ocean, dive watches are the best watches for the holiday. If they’re a person behind the desk, a sturdy timepiece is still a good option as a daily beater. Meaning, it’s fun and comfortable to wear as a go-to watch. One of them, the Seiko Prospex 1968 Re-Creation Hi-Beat Ref. SBEX011 might be the exact companion to head into the water. Besides the beautiful sunburst blue color, the watch is tough to withstand in rough environments. Its mono-bloc case construction offers high resistance to corrosion which is great for underwater activity. Better yet, the bold and sporty look represents a masculine yet classic taste.
A travel watch for the approaching vacation
The Christmas and holiday seasons mean a relaxing yet exciting trip! For that, your loved ones or you need a travel watch with multiple time zones. The strict quarantine period has come to pass. Hence, it’s a cool decision to visit relatives and friends. Still, don’t forget to stay safe and follow the proper health practice. As for the watch, the Glycine Airman 42 “Double Twelve” Ref. GL0061 is a favorite for pilots and frequent travelers. The screw-down crown at the 3 o’clock position performs to set the time and date for the current and next time zones. Meanwhile, another crown secures the time setting on the unidirectional rotating bezel. Not to mention the vivid cream white dial, silver case, and brown leather strap give a sense of balance and clear legibility.
An elegant and versatile black watch
When it comes to versatile watches for the holiday and style, the basic and minimal design of timekeeping devices is second to none. It’s even better for the no-nonsense, all-black color watch. An elegant black watch never disappoints anyone with its neutral yet strong presence on the wrist. The Dietrich Time Companion PVD Pure has every point above for your significant others who are fond of simplicity. In addition, the watch is picturesque with a hexagonal case design. The PVD finish on the case, bezel, back, screws, and bracelet enhances the watch’s durability against scratches and corrosion. It’s limited to only 25 pieces in production.
For the ladies, a timeless aesthetic of a dress watch
Gifting watches to a lady conveys your intention to spend the rest of your time with her. Also, it implies your wish for them to remember you, every time the watch resides on their wrist. Quite romantic and memorable, right? That’s how watches for the holiday can be timeless gifts. And, a timeless aesthetic of Mido Baroncelli Ref. M7600.4.21.1 is the correct pick for this occasion. The watch sizes are in tune with ladies of 6 to 7 inches wrist size, to say nothing of its beauty and versatility. The watch has a charm as an old-school dress watch with the Roman numerals on the dial. Furthermore, it’s made of high-quality materials.
Other holiday gift ideas for them are watch straps or bracelets. It’s a great alternative should your loved one already own one or two watches. The desire to get a fresh look at the watch is always present. For example, a watch with a leather strap is a killer option for business and formal situations. For a more sporty and casual style, a metal bracelet or Nato strap is an excellent preference. Or, to just change the color of the watch’s band, it can give a whole different vibe. Keep in mind that you have to know the model of their watch. Else, you can’t get the right width and length of the watch’s band.
