How to pick the right watch this Christmas
Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.
Another year just passed by and we are again at the same critical point of the year. What gifts to buy this Christmas? I thought that I would be your elf and give you some ideas. Let’s get some socks, let’s have some notebooks or sunglasses? So many options from which to choose from, but if you really want to impress someone you love, just get him a watch. But how to pick the right watch as a gift for this Christmas?Can’t afford a Swiss Made watch? Take advantage of the Christmas spirit and have someone else shell out for one for you. That’s how it works, right? The Christmas spirit? The watch world is full of rules. Gold and silver shouldn’t mix. Automatics are invariably better. The bigger the watch, the manlier the man… Along the year I had the pleasure to work with some amazing Watch Companies. Now I will give some behind the scene thoughts so you will know what you can choose for yourself or for someone you love.
LOCMAN ITALY LUXURY WATCHES
Time to pull out all the stops? A wool coat statement needs a watch that can hold its own. Whether you’re dialling up your style for party season, or showstopping outfits are the norm for you, it’s time to pack away low-key timepieces and break out the big guns. For a style that’s bling yet not brashly so, try the LOCMAN 1960 collection, a gold case and black leather strap watch that grounds its glimmer with a contrasting black dial.
The LOCMAN 1960 collection’s elegant design is based on clean, understated lines, with a contemporary touch closely inspired by the early 1960s. Still associated with Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, the Sixties were the most glamorous of decades, bringing a lifestyle and fashion revolution.
LORD TIMEPIECES WATCHES
For the man whose style bridges the gap between smart and casual, a watch needs to work hard: not too formal as to only look good with a suit, but smart enough to pass muster with a shirt and chinos. The key ingredient? Versatility. A colour and design that makes a watch the kind that’s as well received by your mates down the local as it is meeting your in-laws for the first time. Lord Timepieces Bolt Collection hits the sweet spot, combining a black leather strap and a muted gold dial with a more casual black ion-plated bezel and chronograph function. Meet your new all-rounder.
Bolt collection is designed for men looking for a crisp modern look and ultimate performance. The statement watches from the Bolt collection by Lord Timepieces come in a variety of materials and luxury bold colours such as gold, royal blue, black, white and silver.

The gem of the collection is famous Bolt skeleton oversized watch that would match casual and smart casual outfits. Other watches in the collection come in more classic forms though still maintain the eye-catching luxury appearance.
