Holiday 2023: 6 Stunning watches that make wonderful gifts

The holiday season is here, and there’s no better time than now to spread joy through gifts. If you need some ideas, we’ve got you covered here, but if you need more, consider this as a sign to gift luxury watches this year. Even better, we’ve curated our top picks just for you. From Jaeger-LeCoultre to Panerai, here are six timepieces that will not only keep you on time but also spruce up your festive looks. 


Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Perpetual Calendar

The Polaris Perpetual Calendar is meant for the modern travellers. On its blue lacquered dial, you’ll notice not only the perpetual calendar but also moon phase indications in both hemispheres, with a retrograde hand for the southern hemisphere. Other than that, it is powered by the new Calibre 868, which has a 70-hour power reserve and arrives with two replaceable straps, one in blue rubber and the other in black alligator with a folding clasp.

Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée watch

Ladies, now is the perfect moment to top off your vacation outfits with Van Cleef & Arpels’ feminine Perlée watch. Available in two sizes, 23mm and 30mm, the elegant timepiece grabs attention with its exquisite mother-of-pearl guilloché dial, accented by an 18K rose gold pearl bezel. More good news is that it comes with two replaceable alligator bands as well as an 18K rose gold pin buckle, so you can switch it up or down depending on the occasion.

Panerai Luminor Marina Goldtech™ Sole Blu

The Luminor Marina Goldtech™ Sole Blu is a great choice for those who are into square-shaped timepieces. The emblematic Panerai watch is a sight to behold with its sun-brushed blue sandwich dial that harmoniously complements the rose gold case and matching alligator strap. What’s more, it’s driven by a P.9010 calibre with a power reserve of up to three days.

Cartier Santos de Cartier

A Cartier watch will never let you down. As seen on Hollywood actors like Rami Malek and Tom Cruise, the Santos de Cartier features a silvered opaline dial with a blued-steel sword-shaped hand and a crown set with a faceted synthetic spinel on the side. In addition, the cult favourite includes bracelets fitted with the ‘SmartLink’ adjustment system and a yellow gold bezel that neatly aligns with the screws.

Chopard Alpine Eagle 41

The Alpine Eagle 41 is a contemporary take on the 1980 original St. Moritz model. Inspired by the mighty eagle that rules the Alps, the Chopard timepiece is constructed out of the light-reflecting Lucent Steel™ and beats in time smoothly with the Chopard 01.01-C. What also adds to its appeal is the blue dial, which features rhodium-plated Roman numerals and hour markers.

Breitling Endurance Pro

If you lead an active lifestyle, you might want to check out the Breitling Endurance Pro. Housed in an incredibly lightweight case that’s 3.3 times lighter than titanium, the Swiss-made timepiece sports a blue dial complete with three sub-dials and a bi-directional bezel. Together with the double tang-type buckle, the Breitling piece comes with one of the brand’s vibrant single-piece Econyl yarn straps. On top of that, the Endurance Pro is powered by the Calibre 83, which offers remarkable accuracy.
