Men can sometimes be difficult to buy for. Whether it is at Christmas, for a birthday or a special occasion, sometimes we need some assistance. But between cashmere sweaters and cuff links, the latest gadget or the fastest car, there’s something that every man regardless of his age needs: a man needs a watch.
Watches are a popular gift for different reasons. They can be seen as an inheritance piece that can be passed down through generations, they can be bought as a luxury piece or they can just simply be a fashion accessory. Here are three suggestions depending on what type of guy you’re buying for:
For the sports fan:
TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 Automatic Chronograph
TAG Heuer are one of the largest luxury watch brands currently on the market, selling high quality products for relatively affordable prices. The brand is highly influenced by motor-racing and so TAG Heuer watches are popular amongst motor-racing and sports fans.
So if you want something for a sports fan but also want something that can last generations then you should consider a TAG Heuer timepiece. This particular model features a Tachymetre scale that can be used to measure speed and time that can be useful for lap-times.
For the sophisticated gentleman:
Mont Blanc TimeWalker Date Automatic
This month, Mont Blanc released a watch that celebrates 10 years of their TimeWalker collection.
This Mont Blanc timepiece is a classic and sophisticated watch that would look stylish on any man’s arm. It features automatic movement so he won’t have to replace any batteries as it is powered from the kinetic movements of his wrist, making it efficient and will make him friendlier to the environment.
It features a date by disc window at 6 o’clock and a 42mm easy-to-read white dial. It also has a brown alligator-skin strap with stainless steel pin buckle. The brand’s famous white star logo is also on the stainless steel non-screw crown.
For the casual guy:
Breitling Colt 44
Blue is the colour of Spring 2014 so this Breitling Colt watch is perfect for this season and for any man who likes to keep up with the latest fashions. Breitling’s Colt collection concentrates on reliability and precision whilst looking highly casual. The stainless steel strap and case is scratch-resistant and is water resistant to an incredible 500 metres and the bezel is also unidirectional so it can be used to measure a period of elapsed time.
