Timeless Watches For Men Of All Ages
Watches are maybe the safest and most effective gift idea for men. Understated, timeless yet still packs quite the punch, the right watch will not only make the men in your life happy, but it will also probably turn out to be one of the gifts than they’ll use the most. It’s function and style at the same time, and that’s why you’ll never go wrong with watches.
Going to watch shopping can be daunting though. Truth be told, there are so many great choices in the market today. At different price points, it can soon prove to be overwhelming. It’s imperative to research and know more about the watches that you’re looking into before going to your nearest store or pressing that purchase button in your cart.
That brings us into the debate on what’s the better shopping option: Going to see the actual watch in a store or buying it online? Our stance: both are incredibly valid, and effective ways of getting the watch that you want. There are advantages and disadvantages to both options, but in actuality, your choice should depend on where you are shopping from.
If you’re living in the outskirts of the city, buying from a reputed watch store may ultimately prove to be cheaper. Plus, you get to have the advantage of seeing the watch in person before actually paying for it. Although when you online shop, you get to see the product as well, but the difference between seeing it in person and looking at it in pictures is profound.
Online shopping is more convenient for in-city dwellers though, and most online shops constantly have better prices. Not to mention, most established watch brands now have dedicated online stores with free shipping worldwide. So here are some watch recommendations you need to check out:
For the student
Whether he’s in high school or struggling in college, the perfect watch for this age bracket is something that’s technologically adept with all the humble bragging rights that it can give him. If he has an iPhone, the Apple Watch Series 5 is the best companion for it. Now available in ceramic and titanium, he will have fun switching it up with different bands.
If he has an Android phone, look for a compatible smartwatch to go with it. Samsung has a Galaxy watch for its top of the line smartphones, while Huawei has the GT Watch intended for its flagship devices. Other smartwatches like Fitbit and Pebble can seamlessly integrate with any device, so look into them as well.
For the working man
Is he a fresh graduate working his ass off on his first job? Or has he been the corporate slave for quite some time? It’s time for a step up. What you need to be looking for is heritage, history and the make of the watch. Words like mechanical and self-winding in-house movements should be included in your search list.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a great choice. A crowd-pleaser, this watch has seen 107 variations. It’s arguably the first steel case sports watch in the world when it was launched more than a decade ago. It’s a classic-looking watch with all the right bells and whistles to impress the business crowd.
Omega’s Seamaster may be obvious but hey – you can’t beat a classic. The Seamaster is a true blue diving watch and although your man may or may not be going diving anytime soon, for the make and heritage of this watch alone? It’s more than worth it. The James Bond influence that’s perpetually associated with the brand is just the cherry on top.
For the happily retired
Ah, retirement. There’s truly nothing like it. Men of this stature greatly value anything that’s given to them, provided it’s given with the best of intentions. On the other hand, at this point in their lives they also greatly appreciate a truly stunning masterpiece. One that’s made with hands as well as technology, with hard work and customization.
Breitling’s Navitimer is a timepiece that checks all the boxes for gifting to your Dad or Uncle. The brand may be controversial for less than stellar advertisements years ago, but since 2017, the brand has taken a turn for the better with the addition of its new CEO. The Casio G-Shock may not be the conventional choice but with it’s beefed up features, we’re sure he’s gonna love it in no time.
Timeless watches are investments. And we think, everyone should own at least one or two of them. They’re perfect to wear for special events like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. So what are you waiting for? Get that watch for him today!
