Soon it will be time again and Christmas time is just around the corner. But apart from all the festivities, beautiful lights and fragrant delicacies, the famous question usually doesn’t take too long: What do I give to my loved ones this year? Just in time before the beginning of the contemplative time we therefore present you with a few tasteful gift ideas, which will certainly be well received by the person opposite – so that you can enjoy the Advent season completely relaxed.
Men don’t want socks
The first Advent is already approaching and the year 2019 is drawing to a close. With this statement, many people are not only looking forward to the most beautiful time of the year, but are also horrified when there are no gift ideas for their loved ones. Usually the contemplative time is celebrated extensively with family and friends, to whom one would like to make all a joy. But men in particular are often difficult to give as gifts. We reveal what every man likes to find under the Christmas tree and give suggestions for undecided people. This year you will again find woollen socks, as there is probably no hope for change? This time simply fulfill your Christmas wish yourself and reward yourself at the end of the year for all your efforts – you certainly deserve to fulfill a little dream and start the new year happy.
The best comes at the end: watch models for every budget
Instead of dressing your feet in new clothes, you can use stylish timepieces for your wrist – these are guaranteed to be more popular than the good old socks. We have prepared a small list of luxurious favourites that will surely delight everyone – whether you yourself or a lucky recipient. There is probably no better way to end the year 2019 than with a new elegant treasure on your arm. And for this it is not even necessary to start 2020 financially ruined: The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16, for example, is already available for 3,200€ and is a noble companion in a class of its own. Since 1963, the Carrera series, which was developed in honour of the famous Carrera Panamericana car race, has been inspiring watch fans all over the world. Just like their inspiration, the timepieces stand for speed, strength and reliability – the ideal companions for professional racing drivers. The noble design with high contrasts convinces with simplicity and clarity – so the time can be read easily even when it gets bumpy. This watch is perfect for all adventurers who are constantly on the move and want to put back functionality in terms of style.
Also the Tudor Black Bay GMT is a special eyecatcher and available for only 4.350€. The popular diver’s watch with new GMT function allows you to set the local time while keeping the other two time zones. The manufacture movement caliber MT 5652, as well as the extravagant two-sided rotating bezel in Bordeaux and blue, make this model a functional and optical masterpiece. Perfect for those who love simple colour accents.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer impresses with a modern tone-in-tone look. The dial and bezel are made of polished black ceramic, the bracelet is made of black rubber. This smart timepiece is inspired by diver’s watches, which is especially revealed by the diving scale on the bezel made of white enamel. The sapphire crystal on the case back reveals the powerful Omega Master chronometer calibre 8800. The laser-engraved waves on the dial and the date window at 6 o’clock round off this sporty timepiece. The model is available for €4,090.
The Hublot Classic Fusion 42mm Blue Chronograph Titanium is another eye-catcher in tone-in-tone design. The sun-brushed blue satin dial and the blue rubber and alligator leather strap are the right choice for those who like to stand out – but this is discreet and stylish. Here the refined details and high-quality materials result in a wonderful composition. At a price of €7,550, this masculine timepiece is also relatively affordable.
You want to delight your loved one or yourself at Christmas with an extra portion of luxury? Then we recommend the Rolex GMT Master II – or more precisely, a special variant of it: The watch with the reference 126711 comes up with a noble combination of steel and rose gold, as well as the typical black dial. Hardly any other design radiates such minimalist elegance and at the same time has so much functionality to offer. Originally, the GMT-Master was launched in 1955 to help professional pilots orient themselves by displaying two time zones simultaneously.
Today, business travelers in particular like to take advantage of the GMT Master II. In addition, its perfect readability, durability and impressive aesthetics have made it the darling of the public. At a price of 16,490€ you have to dig a little deeper into your pocket, but with Rolex you know that this investment is really worth it.
The perfect gift for collectors: watch winders
Watch fans who own a large number of timepieces usually do not get to wear all of them regularly. Here, an electric watch winder that imitates the typical wearing movement is ideal. Due to the rotational movements, automatic watches are wound and continue to run, although they were not worn the usual power reserve of about two days. In this way, the favourite watch runs stable for a long time and no constant adjustment is necessary. In addition, most models can be individually adjusted so that the direction of movement and the number of revolutions can be matched to the special movement – so that all automatic treasures remain functional for a long time. Watch winders also look pretty and can offer the collector an appealing picture of his collection – so there is hardly a better Christmas present for fans.
