Best men's watches this holiday
Okay, so you can’t really give the gift of time, but you can help him keep track of it with the gift of a classic timepiece. Watches make the perfect holiday gift for the men in your life because they are both functional and stylish. With an array of styles in any price range to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect watch for every guy on your list.
Sports watches come with all sorts of bells and whistles, like timer and stopwatch functions that are perfect for the athletic guy on your gift list. Look for features like a light for those early morning runs on dark winter days, multiple-lap timing capabilities and a built-in memory. In addition to functionality, modern sports watches have style options too. Choose a colorful rubber band or a durable nylon band. You can choose from a small face to a large, easy-to-read face. With different styles, sizes and colors to choose from, a sports watch is an anything-but-boring gift choice! Try shopping sites like Overstock.com for a wide selection!
For the traditional guy, a classic watch with a leather band is the perfect present. Black or brown leather both appeal to the classic sensibility. An analog face is the more traditional choice, but some modern takes on the classics have a digital face instead. If leather isn’t his thing, select a stainless steel band, which will hold up to the elements. A classic watch like this Stuhrling Original Men's Aristocrat Executive Automatic Skeleton Black Watch can be found on sites like Amazon for a price you'll love.
Bold watches are trending right now on sites like Amazon. Choose a larger-than-usual face for a show-stopping look. Or, for a modern take on a bold watch, select a square or rectangular watch face. Another bold option is to select a band in a bright color. This works best with rubber or leather bands, but you can find stainless bands with different finishes if that’s his style.
Spend a little more this year on an investment timepiece. A watch can be the perfect gift to last him a lifetime. Choose an upgraded watch from a well-known brand like Rolex. Because you can spend from hundreds to thousands of dollars on an investment watch, be sure to shop for the piece at a jewelry store or watch store that has a watch master on staff to help you make the right decision.
Impress the man on your list with a vintage watch. A vintage watch makes a unique gift that he’ll love forever. Just be sure to shop at a reputable store and make sure all the moving parts work properly. We recommend shopping stores like Etsy's "Yesterday's Time" for a broad selection of vintage watches!
