Perfect the art of subtle couple dressing with his and hers timepieces
Two is better than one
We get it: couple dressing isn't for everyone — especially when the level of cheesiness is dialled to the extreme with OTT twinning ensembles. For the more reticent, fret not, you'll find that you can always take a subtler path to synching with your better half. Ahead, we've shortlisted 10 matching timepieces so you can wear your hearts on your wrists with finesse:
Zenith Elite Moonphase
There is just something romantic about the moon, and Zenith has aptly encapsulated that beauty in this pair of matching Elite Moonphase watches. Crafted in rose gold, both pieces sport clean, elegant silvery-white sunray dials accentuated by the moonphase display, set only apart by its sizes — 40.5mm and 36mm — and a diamond-set bezel for her.
Hublot Big Bang One Click Sang Bleu
The perfect match for the couple who share a love for both haute horlogerie and tattoos, the Hublot Big Bang One Click Sang Bleu steps up with new details and materials that are guaranteed to set hearts racing. For him, the collaboration timepiece with tattoo artist Maxime Bucchi gets a stunning all-white limited-edition design this year with a 45mm ceramic case. For her, the stainless steel 39mm version shines in its own right with 48 diamonds set around the sculptural bezel.
Chopard Alpine Eagle
For matching steel-bracelet options, Chopard's Alpine Eagle makes a solid contender with its classic sports-watch aesthetic and exquisite dial finish (plus a nice backstory to boot). It comes in 10 references of different materials, sizes and dials, but our picks are the steel and gold versions in 41mm and 36mm, which are paired with beautiful grey dials that really accentuate the finish design inspired by the iris of the eagle.
Omega De Ville Trésor
One collection, two distinctive interpretations. For the ladies, diamond-paved curves run along each side of the 36mm case while Roman numerals and elegant 18K Sedna gold hands star on the mother-of-pearl dial. It exudes elegance that is well complemented by its counterpart, a 40mm stainless steel piece featuring a blue patterned dial and a trusty Co-Axial Chronometer Calibre 8910 movement.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic
It's a no-brainer: you can't go wrong with a classic. Or two in this case. What we love about the Reverso Classic is that it'll tell you the time on one side, while the back can be customised to hold a special engraved message that is dear to the both of you. They make the ultimate bespoke letters of love.
