Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it’s time to show that special someone just how much they mean to you. Hugs, kisses, and even chocolates are great, but what else says “love” like a luxury watch? Traditionally, jewelry has been a go-to gift for Valentine’s Day. Jewelry is sweet, it is elegant, it has been the norm for Valentine’s Day. Purchasing something so exclusive, such as a ring, a bracelet, or a pair of earrings, is a definite demonstration of ones love for another. Many things have changed though in the last few decades and luxury watches now are a great Valentine’s Day gift alternative to more traditional jewelry.
From the male perspective, luxury watches have now become something to wear leisurely and are not just condemned to business and formal attire. The luxury watch market has multiple models whose entire purpose is to embody the sporty gentleman such as the Rolex Submariner, Omega Seamaster, or Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine. The great thing about sporty watches is that they fit outside the business world but also look great at any suit and tie affair. They really are the best way to get the most “bang for your buck” as they are meant and built for daily wear.
The amount of change in style and social constructs in the last couple of decades has also significantly affected the relationship between women and high end jewelry/watches. Like mentioned earlier, jewelry or a small fancy watch, considered the normal gift for a woman on Valentine’s Day, also was strictly doomed to formal attire events. For decades now, women have entered the business world and hold some of the world’s top executive positions. With that change, women’s watch styles have also shifted to larger, sportier, every day designs. Examples of some sporty women’s watches are the Rolex Yachtmaster, Ulysse Nardin Marin, or the Chanel J12. Any of these sporty watches are great for the office, a dinner party, or the beach. Some pieces of jewelry can be interpreted as too flashy for daily wear and even then, cannot be worn everywhere. The key to style is to be appropriate but also to have something worth wearing. You can’t go wrong with a luxury watch, as a timepiece is an essential for daily wear. In today’s watch market there are multiple models suitable for almost any event. Whether this Valentine’s Day gift be for a husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or simply that best friend who has been there along the way, a luxury time piece is one of the most functional gifts you can get anyone.
