Gifts for Watch Lovers
We all know that person who has more watches than shoes! They could be a novice collector or a true watch aficionado. Either way, timepieces make them tick. The craftsmanship, the sounds, the functions, the way it feels on the wrist – it isn't difficult to understand the appeal. Lucky for you, finding the perfect watch gift will be easy. Whether it's Father's Day, a birthday, or another celebratory occasion, here's a list of unique gifts for the watch collector in your life.
Chronograph watches are popularly used for aviation, athletics, and even cooking or baking. Simply speaking, these high-performance timepieces include a timer or stopwatch function. Sub-dials on the face measure hours, minutes, seconds and sometimes even tenths of a second. Additionally, many chronographs calculate rapid speed or distance with tachymeter bezels.
Ideal for scuba divers and avid swimmers, dive watches are specifically designed to withstand high pressures underwater. They have a minimum water-resistance of 100M (10 atm or 330 ft). Gaskets and sealants achieve the watertight seal.
Moon Phase Watch
Moon phase watches show the passing of time in an illustrative way. In addition to the classic hours, minutes and seconds, these timepieces tell you the time of the month. Physical depictions of the moon change to match its phase, from new moon to full moon. This feature has a celestial quality, making it appealing to stargazers, astronomers, and astrologists alike.
Many watch collectors will appreciate the old-fashioned craftsmanship of a vintage watch from our Estate line. Since most of these watches are no longer being made, each is unique and one-of-a-kind. Many are luxuriously crafted of solid gold with diamonds or other gemstones.
An extension of the vintage watch category, pocket watches are perfect for lovers of all things antique. Most popular from the 16th century until World War I, these timepieces were made to secure to a waistcoat, lapel, or belt loop with a long chain. Modern interpretations use the chain as a necklace and the pocket watch as the pendant.
Made popular during the Retro era, automatic watches self-wind with a weighted rotor that rotates with the movement of the wrist. These self-winding watches are a collector's favorite as they allow the wearing to connect and interact with their timepiece.
A watch winder is a must-have for any automatic watch owner. Since automatic watches are designed to always be worn, they should be kept on a watch winder when not in use. Using circular rotations, the device emulates human motion to operate the self-winding mechanism. This assures that your watch will stay wound.
We offer different options to suit every collection size. From one to eight modules, each watch winder features an attractive finish for a handsome display.
As a watch enthusiast's collection grows, the more storage they will need. For this reason, a watch box is always a beautiful and practical gift. With gorgeous wood finishes, our watch cases put your collection on display while also complementing your home decor.
