If you’ve just noticed that Christmas is only three days away and haven’t finished (or even started) your holiday shopping yet, why not pick up cool watches for some of those folks on your list? Here are a few gift ideas for watch lovers and where to find them. Be sure to take your recipient’s personal taste and/or lifestyle into your choice of the right watch.
For that female giftee with classic, elegant and expensive taste, the Bulova Women’s Precisionist watch is guaranteed to make her smile with appreciation. This 36 mm bracelet watch has 2/3 ct. t.w. in diamonds and a two-tone stainless steel band. You’d expect to pay $2,500.00 for this glamorous timepiece but you can get one now at Macy’s on sale for just $2,000.
For the lady who loves her designer names and eye-catching colors, Macy’s has the Versace Women’s Swiss Diamond Accent V-Signature Turquoise Leather Strap Watch for $1,595. This 35mm Swiss-made timepiece sports a round ion-gold plated stainless steel case with the Versace Greek key pattern on the bezel and a sapphire crystal.
Does that fitness fanatic on your gift list offend your finely honed taste in timepieces by wearing a tacky plastic smartwatch? Up his style game by gifting him with this classy looking BLUTEKUSA Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch in silver and black. This smartwatch will do everything that fitness band can do and more plus look much more sophisticated doing it. Your giftee can get instant notifications from his smartphone, take photos with the built-in camera and track his daily fitness routine. You can get the Gear 2 Smartwatch for $418.56 at Sears.com.
If the Samsung Gear 2 still looks too tech-y for your tastes, surprise someone on your list with a Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch for select Android devices in natural silver for $299.99 from Best Buy. This is a sleek, chic wearable device that looks more like a designer watch than one of those plastic fitness bands. The Moto 360 smartwatch is finely crafted with a stainless steel case, genuine leather band and scratch-resistant glass.
Want to instill a love for fine watches early in your little ones? Bypass those plastic watches from Disney and Marvel to gift your kids with the Viceroy Kids’ Black Luminous Date Rubber Kids Watch. This kid-size version of an adult sports watch features an all stainless steel case, luminous hands and numbers, date window and second hand feature with minute track. This timepiece from Viceroy is water resistant to 165 feet, which is way deeper than anyplace your kid will be going. Regularly priced at $410.00, this watch is just $131.20 at Amazon.com.
After looking at all of these watches you’re probably wishing Santa would bring you something nice by Cartier or Rolex, so tomorrow we’ll be looking at the watches you’d most like to find in your stocking this year.
