When it comes to buying a gift for the person who has everything, you can not go far wrong with a watch. Here are some Valentine’s Day wristwatch gift ideas.
Valentine’s Day Watch Ideas
We’ve broken our list down into “his” and “hers” but, of course, anyone can wear anything these days! Here are WRUK’s Valentine’s Day gift watch picks for 2019.
Valentine’s Day Watches – Gift Ideas For Men
Fossil Chase Timer Chronograph
Grey watches are “in” this year, and this Fossil caught our eye. The colour is called “Smoke Grey” and looks rather cool. Inside is a reliable and accurate chronograph movement. It costs £109 from Fossil.
Casio G-Shock Bluetooth Step Tracker Watch
If you want to get the man in your life a Valentine’s gift that will last a lifetime, then you can’t go wrong with a G-Shock. These are the ultimate watch for the outdoor enthusiast and can take pretty much anything you can throw at them. This stealth-black model costs £119 from Watchshop.co.uk.
Undone Custom Dive Watches
For something truly unique, we recommend looking at the selection of Undone watches. They are fully customisable so you can pick the case, strap, dial, hands and bezel from a huge range of options. The Aqua dive watches are our pick of the bunch, with a dependable Seiko NH35 self-winding movement for a smooth sweeping second hand, and 200m of water resistance (if you choose a solid case-back). You can even add an engraving and custom text of a logo on the dial. Click here to play with the configurator – prices start at £355.
Valentine’s Day Watches for Women
Fossil Jacqueline Wink Eye
This three-Hand rose gold-tone watch has a cheeky personality and you can add engraving for that personal touch. It’d made by Fossil, who also produce watches for a number of other fashion brands. It’s quartz (battery-powered) so will be accurate and rarely need to have the time reset. It’s £99 direct from Fossil in the UK.
Michael Kors Mini Darci Watch
If brand matters to the lady in your life, then you can always get a Fossil-built watch such as this Michael Kors. It’s smaller and dressier than the fossil, but silver and white goes with anything. RRP is £219 for this Michael Kors Watch from Watchshop.co.uk.
This is a unisex watch in the classic minimalist style. There are dozens of brands offering this style of watch, but only Nordgreen have a corporate social responsibility program that can track the impact of every individual serial number on the good causes they support. This model costs £149 direct from Nordgreen.
Other Valentine’s Day Gifts for Watch Enthusiasts
If you can’t stretch to the cost of a new watch, there are a whole range of thing you can buy for a watch enthusiast. Here are some accessories as ideas for watch fan gifts this Valentine’s Day.
A good box is ideal for storing and displaying a growing watch collection. The absolute best watch boxes in the world come from Rainer in Germany (click here to view on eBay) but there are plenty of more affordable options at Amazon.co.uk.
There are loads of books on watches on Amazon.co.uk so why not browse and find one in your price range?
Finally, if your partner likes mechanical self-winding watches but likes to keep one ready to “grab and go” you could invest in a watch winder. These hold one or more automatic watches and keep them charged even when not on the wrist. Remember they only work with mechanical watches and not quartz or hand-winding only models! Both Amazon and eBay have a huge selection to choose from.
