The Christmas gift idea guide for men: 5 perfect watch models
Christmas is coming and so is the time to think about the perfect Christmas present to gift a man. It feels quite impossible sometimes to find the right Christmas gift idea for a man, be it for the life partner, for the father, the brother, or another important man in one’s life. Especially if you want it to be of a certain quality and above all, meaningful. Specially themed pocket squares set, leather accessories, a suit, or maybe a great pair of leather shoes would sometimes work. But what if you are done with all of these choices or already gave these gifts, what happens then?!
Well, we might have the right answer for you. What can be more meaningful and important about a man’s look than a watch?! Admit it, not many. This is why we at Mouvex Watches have created a special selection of watches that would make the perfect presents this holiday season. Let’s get you ready for Christmas!
- Cartier Ballon Bleu
Considered to be one of the most popular watches of the last decade, the Ballon Bleu by Cartier is undoubtedly one of our top choices for the perfect Christmas present selection for men. This watch model has a very simple circular shape but its smooth tactility in the hand and versatility as a casual or formal watch are what makes this watch so special. While ergonomic watch designs usually call for a slightly concave back to hug the wrist, the gently domed back of the Ballon Bleu sits well between the wrist bones, making it surprisingly comfortable. The fact that the watch is large but fairly lightweight adds to its wearability.
- Breitling Chronoliner
Back in 2015 Breitling counted a series of watch model launches inspired by its vintage designs. In particular, the Breitling Chronolines is a special aviation-themed model that we could not leave out of our special Christmas present selection. The vintage details in this watch model could be noticed in the piston pushers and the black bezel on a panda dial. Indifference from our previous choice, Breitling Chronolines is a wide watch and very masculine. Breitling opted for a solid case back on the new Chronoliner. Inside, you’ll find the Breitling Caliber 24, which is a modified ETA Valjoux 7754, known to be as reliable as a workhorse.
- IWC Portofino Chronograph
IWC has proven to be a very special watch brand through years and years of effort and hard work. For this year’s special Christmas present selection, we would like to honor the IWC Portofino Chronograph. While combining perfectly the modern perspective with the inspiration from the 1960s’ designs, this watch model comes with a very elegant feel, from the stainless-steel case right to the luxurious leather strap or steel band, and with a reliable caliber to ensure the Portofino’s accuracy to boot. The movement used for this watch model is Automatic 75320 Caliber. IWC through this model is aiming for balance, offering a design that lands between classy and sporty.
- Panerai Luminor Base Logo
It is safe to say that back in 2018, the model Luminor Base Logo was one of two major commercial releases from the Swiss watchmaker with Italian roots. The case is a large, thick cushion that frames a round bezel. On the right-hand side of the case is a trademarked crown guard that can be opened and closed to move the crown between positions. This, as much as oversized cases and luminous sandwich dials, has come to define Panerai in the popular imagination.
The Caliber P.6000 was one of the most special details about this launch as it ended the use of the ETA Unitas-based calibers by Panerai. Panerai harnessed the powerful design of an Italian military supplier and created a watch that is so emblematic. This is why we gladly introduced this choice in our special Christmas present selection.
- Mouvex Art Deco
And last but not the least, Mouvex enriches our special Christmas present selection of the perfect timepieces. Inspired by the glory of the Art Deco era which coincides with the period when the brand Mouvex was born, the new models launched by a very long hibernation period are simply amazing. What makes these watches so special is the square shape which is not very popular in high-end watches but would be ideal to enrich a special collection of precious watches. Powered by an ETA 2824 automatic movement this is one of the most versatile watches out there landing between the classic style and sporty one through the practical interchangeability between leather or stainless-steel bands watch bands. Mouvex watches are a pure combination of creativity and Swiss precision.
