Finding a special gift for the sophisticated man can be a challenge! Men with confidence and who know how to look after themselves appear to have it all. And they usually do. If they want it, they will likely go buy it themselves. So, what do you get this person?
Watches: The gift for the sophisticated man
Fortunately, the answer is sometimes staring you in the face. Or rather, you are staring into the face of the answer.
Is he a fashion lover? Does he pride himself on keeping appointments, both personally and professionally?
If so, a watch can make a terrific present for Christmas, his birthday, or another special occasion. Chronograph timepieces with an intricate design are the height of precise mechanical engineering, art, and design rolled into an attractive package. It’s something he can be proud to wear daily on his wrist.
Rolex might be your immediate thought, but this well-known brand of choice for the rich and famous is somewhat of a cliché today. Other brands are just as good and, may we dare say, more stylish.
Luxury watch brands
Tudor Heritage, Zenith, and Patek Phillipe are great examples of understated luxury watchmakers who rival the sometimes ostentatious designs of Rolex. Patek Philippe, in particular, is renowned for its precision chronographs, which typically run on limited productions for around five years.
So naturally, this feature makes its models highly desirable to collectors and admirers alike. But, like Rolex, brands such as this one are successful only for one reason: they create charming masterpieces with each release.
