5 Luxury Watches To Spoil Him This Christmas | The Watch Hut
Picking out the perfect gift for him can be tricky, particularly if he happens to be the man who has everything. However, you can never have too many watches and a luxury men's timepiece is guaranteed to go down a storm come Christmas morning.
A well-made watch can last a lifetime when cared for properly and makes a perfect token of your affection. We've delved into our extensive collection and selected five handsome models any man would love to receive, from a fetching limited-edition piece crafted by Ingersoll to a beautiful world timer from Frederique Constant.
- White-hot silver from Raymond Weil
Men's Raymond Weil Tango 300 watch (RRP £895)
Raymond Weil has been producing affordable luxury watches since 1976, and always releases collections that look far pricier than their modest price tag suggests. The men's Tango 300 model (RRP £895) has a cool, steely aesthetic, with its silver metal bracelet and grey/silver dial. The striking blue and white hands and markers complete the balanced colour scheme of this Swiss-branded stunner.
- Fight the elements with Ball
The Ball brand was born in 1891, and from the get-go, the aim was to provide accuracy to men and women working under adverse conditions. The men's Fireman NECC Automatic watch (RRP £1,250) was produced in collaboration with The US Navy Expeditionary Combat Command and was purposely built to cope with the high demands of the troops who must perform in some of the harshest terrains.
Constructed from solid stainless steel and sapphire crystal glass, the watch's hands and markers feature the brand's radical H3 Luminosity technology, enabling them to charge without light and provide visibility for years in dark and murky conditions.
The watch is easy on the eye, and features an attractive burnt orange, black and silver colour scheme that'll make his business colleagues take notice.
- To the moon and back
Union Glashutte Belisar Mondphase chronograph (RRP £2,560)
Pinpoint accuracy and reliability come as standard from Union Glashutte, one of Germany's leading watch manufacturers. Its Belisar Mondphase chronograph (RRP £2,560) is no exception, and comes packed with all the features an aviator needs, such as pilot date, power reserve, and moonphase feature (‘mond' being German for ‘moon').
The timeless design combines a dark brown leather strap with a white dial, a silvery and rose-coloured case, and rose gold hands. It has a casual feel and colour scheme that'll make it perfect for a more relaxed look, like a weekend meal or when he meets friends for drinks after work.
- Go globetrotting with Frederique Constant
Frederique Constant Manufacture Worldtimer Limited Edition (RRP £3,230)
If your man is something of a jet-setter, then the Manufacture Worldtimer Limited Edition (RRP £3,230) from Frederique Constant could be the one. Featuring a unique, blue alligator-leather strap and convex sapphire glass, wearing this is a beautifully tactile experience.
The silver guilloche dial is emblazoned with a world map, which is finished off with blue hands and a sub-dial perched over the six o'clock marker. A special piece that's one of the finest examples of watch craftsmanship we've seen from Geneva.
- Go playful with Ingersoll and Disney
Ingersoll's New Haven Disney Limited Edition watch (RRP £500)
If you thought Disney characters were strictly for kids' watches, think again. Ingersoll's New Haven Disney Limited Edition watch (RRP £500) is masculine and playful. The chocolate brown tortoiseshell leather strap has a vintage feel, while the golden case and dial add a mature touch.
But, what makes this so special is the presence of Mickey Mouse, leaning casually against the nine marker. Presented in an attractive wooden box inscribed with the iconic Mickey silhouette logo, this timepiece is destined to become a much sought-after collector's item.
If you want to spoil a special man in your life, then it's a safe bet that a luxury watch will be much appreciated. With 1,000s of timepieces available, from affordable everyday pieces to more premium brands, The Watch Hut men's collection has something for every man this Christmas.
