Christmas is coming fast, and you’re still looking for the perfect gift for that perfect lady in your life? And you know she’s going to just love getting a watch? We’ve got you covered. With a great watch for the wife, girlfriend, mom, sister, or that special someone, we’ve got something for everyone, and for every budget. What watch will you be getting for that special someone?

Seiko SUR380P1

We’re going to start with the cold hard facts for watch fans: Many women want a quartz timepiece. So skip all that mechanical stuff (just this once), and give them what they want. The Seiko SUR380P1 is a great choice, with its reliable quartz movement, timeless design, and great feel on the wrist. Its metal bracelet, beautiful finishing, and two-tone design give this watch a top-quality, elegant feel that she’ll enjoy for everyday wear and special events. This Christmas, you’ll hit the nail on the head with the Seiko SUR380P1. She’s going to love it!

Junghans Max Bill

The woman you’re getting a watch for sees it as something that, you know, displays the time? That makes her the perfect candidate for a watch with a Bauhaus design. True to “form follows function,” these timepieces have great legibility – all while emanating timeless elegance and simplistic beauty. The Junghans Max Bill was created in the 1960s, and shines with its clear, crisp design, while its domed crystal gives it that extra special something. The Max Bill is also hand-wound, meaning that this holiday season, your horological gift may set a love affair in motion that goes beyond mere appearances. After all, the daily ritual of hand-winding your timepiece puts you in contact with the technology and time of the watchmaking craft, your own personal daily dose of meditation and mindfulness. It’s a small but significant moment of peace and calm, and a beautiful thing you can give this Christmas.

Are you looking to give a woman her first automatic watch? Or are you maybe looking for an automatic watch for a woman who knows her way around watches, and needs a timepiece for any occasion?

Rado Centrix

The woman you’re shopping for has a certain penchant for watches, and you want to do your part to keep that the case? The Rado Centrix is the watch for you this holiday season. The combination of gold with black ceramic on this skeletonized watch is simply fascinating. And this timepiece is only partially skeletonized, bringing just the right touch of stability to its otherwise active dial. Bad girl? Elegant diva? A little of both? This watch can unite all of them. It’s a timepiece for elegant occasions, and still won’t look overdressed when combined with a pair of jeans. You also get a great view of its caliber in action – a true automatic beauty.

This timepiece has a “Long Life” feature that maximizes its battery life to 48 months. It’s also a head-turner with its Roman numeral indices, along with the diamonds nestled into the flanks of its case. Omega of course takes care that its diamonds are ethically and fairly sourced. This watch is modern enough for everyday wear, while exuding more than enough elegance to shine at any evening event. The Omega De Ville Trésor will make the heart of any jewelry lover skip a beat, and just might make that special someone find a place in her heart for that fantastic quartz movement beating away inside this watch.

Chopard Happy Sport 36mm

Need a Christmas gift for a woman who loves the beautiful things in life, but is still a child at heart? The Chopard Happy Sport 36mm is the perfect choice. Seven free-floating diamonds sandwiched between two sapphire crystal surfaces move freely about the watch’s dial with the motion of your wrist; it’s a truly irresistible attribute of this timepiece, and a whole lot of fun. This watch is also a piece of horological history, being the first to unite stainless steel with diamonds. Playful and elegant, steel and diamonds. The Chopard Happy Sport attracts opposites to achieve a beautiful creation.

Chanel J12 38mm Black Ceramic Automatic

They’re more than just accessories. Just take the Chanel J12 38mm Black Ceramic Automatic. It puts both haute couture and haute horlogerie on the wrist of every woman. Beneath its timelessly elegant surface, its caliber delivers 70 hours of power reserve and excellent accuracy. Its rotatable diver’s bezel furthermore guarantees you’ll never lose track of the time. So whether the special woman in your life is a fashion fanatic or watch aficionado (or both), she’s going to love having this little black addition in her watch box, and most of all, on her wrist.

Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta

Are you the happy owner of a Panerai Luminor Marina? Then surprise your watch-loving better half this season with a new edition of this timepiece. With its 40-mm diameter, the Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta is the smallest model in the Luminor series. Now, this case size is still on the larger side for a woman’s wrist, but keep in mind that it’s a Panerai. Just like larger models in the Luminor series, this model also features 100 meters (10 bar, 328 feet) of water resistance, along with an in-house movement. When your loved one puts this watch on her wrist, however, its technical specifications will be momentarily forgotten. You giving her the wonderful gift of a Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta is you sharing your common passion and enthusiasm for this icon of the watch world.

Rolex GMT-Master II

The Rolex GMT-Master II Batgirl is a dream for women, no matter whether they’re Rolex lovers, world travelers, or comic fans. First and foremost, however, this Rolex is on today’s list because it’s my dream watch. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Don’t just give any watch this Christmas, or even any luxury watch. Give her the watch she truly wants. Getting a Rolex is always a wonderful thing. With me, for instance, this watch is so special because I’m secretly an absolute comic buff. The Batgirl lets me tell this to the world (hopefully soon) in my own public, yet discrete way. That creates my personal connection to it. This Christmas, find the watch that will have this kind of importance for the woman in your life that the Rolex GMT-Master II has for me. She’ll absolutely love you for it.

The moment I learned that watches were a lot more than just simple jewelry, I was hooked; I become enamored with the elegance of timekeeping. But there was one small hitch: most models were just too big for me to wear! That didn't discourage me, however. In fact, I developed quite a niche interest.
