Are you a guy who’s finally decided to splurge on a high-quality watch that will compliment your look and elevate your style? Or are you a confused friend or relative looking for the best holiday gift for a man in your life but know nothing about watches? Don’t worry, today you can find something that will make any type of man happy, no matter if he’s a suit-and-tie man or more of a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy. Here are just some of the models you can include in your search and consider as a perfect gift.
If you value simplicity and performance above anything overly complicated and flashy, then you need a minimalist piece that will add elegance to your look without being too robust and busy. If you’re looking for a highly sophisticated look, Nordgreen Philosopher is the watch for you. Its silver dial, stainless steel case and simple leather straps will fit your every office outfit and make you look elegant in any situation. If you prefer something more sporty and casual, Komondo KOM-W1904 will give you just what you need thanks to its bolder all-black case that’s both stealthy and eye-catching.
For sporty guys
If you hit the gym every day and do your best to look absolutely stunning when you take your clothes off, then you need a good watch that will have your back during workout sessions and runs. In that case, you can grab a good fitness tracker watch that will not only measure time and your performance at the gym but also allow you to take calls, send quick message replies and check notifications. If you’re looking for nothing but class, go with Apple Watch Series 4 or its direct competitor Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. A little less elegant, but more affordable is definitely Fitbit’s Versa. Choose your fighter and let the games begin!
For outdoor boys
Boys who love to spend time outside and enjoy various activities, especially diving, will need something sturdy yet elegant. In that case, you can look into dive designer watches for men, but make sure to opt for a new generation of watches that are slim yet pressure-resistant. When you’re under the water, you don’t want anything bulky to weigh you down, so these new slim watches fit everything inside a 6.8mm thick case you won’t even notice it’s there. And these beauties will look just as elegant with a three-piece suit as they look with a wetsuit, so it’s perfect for every type of man.
If you’re no stranger to a tailored suit or tuxedo, then what you need to make your look even more elegant and sophisticated is a nice dress watch. These are usually simple and slim so they can sit under your cuff without any issues, yet attractive enough to catch the eye and send a message. Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the biggest names in the industry, but if you’re not ready to set aside tens of thousands of dollars, you can opt for something more affordable yet still elegant like IWC or Montblanc models.
For car fanatics
If you’re a die-hard car enthusiast or even a racer that always tries to achieve amazing times at the track, you need a good watch to keep you updated on your performance. Racing watches are truly iconic and many timepieces we know and love today were inspired by iconic racing cars. And you have so many amazing models to choose from: you can go affordable with a Swatch model or opt for something classic like TAG Tauer which made these timepieces with chronographs popular among drivers. These watches usually feature chronographs and tachymeters but are also characterized by clear and legible numbers that can be very practical on the race track and during everyday activities that require speed and precision.
For nostalgic boys
If you want to return to your childhood yet need a watch that’s practical, sturdy and all grown up, check out Casio’s G-Shock Digital Watch. This model packs tones of throwback style and modern features. Plus, it’s much less “out there” than your typical G-Shock with its thick case and robust look that attracts all the attention.
If you know yourself or your gift recipient well, you won’t have any issues picking out the perfect watch. Opt for any one of these elegant and high-quality models, and you’ll get to enjoy punctuality for years and years.
