We are a society that thrives on friendships. Friends are the family we choose based on shared interests, values and experiences. Irrespective of the time we share with them over catch-ups and phone calls, we feel grateful for their silent care and affection. These special bonds require minimal effort to survive through the atrocity of life and generously bloom with time. Yet, they’re highly undervalued as we do not expect them to expire, do we?
This Black Friday, let’s take a moment to celebrate this special connection with something as rare, valuable, and worthy as their presence in our lives. Present them with the gift of time that will forever remind them of your friendship and how far you’ve come together. An elegant luxury watch is a wonderful gift that ticks off all the boxes for a Black Friday present. It shows off their personality and lasts a lifetime, just like your friendship. They can flaunt it around the year and accessorise it with their regular outfits.
Whether their style is sporty, classic, modern or retro, we have listed all the luxury watches that will definitely give them the polish they want!
Very few watches embrace such poise and elegance as Jaeger-LeCoultre. Releasing in 2016, the JLC Master Chronograph looks like an efficient stainless steel timepiece representing the brand’s iconic watchmaking tradition. Watch connoisseurs believe that JLC 751 movement is one of the most accurate chronographs, which stands out consistently with its rigorous performance.
With the Ref. Q1538470, you get an elegant 40mm stainless steel case finely mounted on a black leather (alligator) strap, a sunray black dial featuring three prominent and highly legible sub-dials and a date aperture between 4 and 5. The watch looks compact, and the construction is excellent. Even though the watch sports a very monochromatic design, it stands out in all aspects- design, function and versatility.
Is there anyone who won’t appreciate Rolex as a gift? And the Rolex Day-Date is its trophy timepiece completely under the spell of solid yellow gold. Apart from displaying the day and date effortlessly and legibly, the watch flaunts the prestigious ‘President’ bracelet, which takes its worth to the next level. A complete 18ct yellow gold timepiece doesn’t sound sporty. However, it definitely is a stalwart contender for that ‘one watch’ status. What better gift, really? However, that’s not all.
Coming in a 36mm 18ct yellow gold case, the Day-Date Ref. 118238 flaunts a stylish Mother-Of-Pearl dial set with 10 diamond dot hour markers offering an amazing shine. The yellow gold bezel is fixed and fluted, and the adjoining President bracelet reflects the ultimate refinement ensuring impeccable beauty.
We actually take great pride in including this Patek Philippe as an everyday timepiece. The Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar chronograph is a dream for many. Not just because it is an impeccable watch brand or gets a good resale value. But for its striking case shape and overall appearance! The Perpetual Calendar chronograph is one of Patek’s most iconic and historical models, whose origin dates back to 1941. The Ref. 5270 was Patek’s first-ever perpetual calendar chronograph, and the Ref. 5270G-001 looks outstanding in a 41mm white gold case mounted on a fine leather strap.
The watch is a modern classic with three sub-dials indicating moon phase, day/night indicator, leap year, and seconds & hour counter. The Ref. 5270G-001 is undoubtedly the quintessential perpetual calendar chronograph, well-proportioned for regular wear.
Gifting that special friend who has been with you through all life’s turbulence a limited edition timepiece is worth it! After all, the gift should be as limited and rare as your friendship. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is the fruit of the watchmaker’s meticulous skills. In 2006, AP manufactured a limited edition of 100 pieces of green dial ‘Monte Napoleone’ timepieces which counts itself amongst the most sought-after and rarest AP models. With its latest design style, the watch has an inevitable masculine touch of elegance that gives the wearer a luxurious feel. The Ref. 26075ST.OO.D038CR.01 has a 44mm steel case with a green ‘Clous de Paris’ Grand Tapisserie dial and a green leather strap.
The watch looks dynamic with the screw-infused steel bezel, black rubber-clad screw-locked crown and push pieces on the side. The Offshore’s dramatic aesthetics combined with the distinctive functional elements lends a larger-than-life appeal. It is one of the most easily recognisable luxury watches available today. If your friend prefers all things exclusive, this iconic sports watch will definitely impress.
The Maison de Cartier has always ruled the watch kingdom with its impeccable dress watch design. And the Francaise is one of its most iconic creations embracing sophistication, elegance and smooth grace. Since its launch, the Cartier Francaise timepiece has enjoyed the attention for its classic outlook. The Ref. W51008Q3 is a stylish, small-sized affair sporting a sleek 25mm rectangular stainless steel case. The beautiful silver dial features black Roman numerals, sleek steel sword-shaped hands, and a chain-link steel bracelet that perfectly complements the case.
The main appeal of the Tank Francaise lies in the fact that the watch is straightforward and strong and works excellently as an everyday timepiece. Celebrities who love the watch for its effortless style include Angelina Jolie, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, and Michelle Obama, amongst many others. Hence, gifting your friend with such a chic and statement timepiece will only create some matchless memories.
In the rough terrains of life, true friends are like the cushions that give us the support we need time and again. If you’re lucky enough to have found such a person who has been a constant companion on your journey, gift them luxury watches that will forever accompany them during the mayhem. Show love and celebrate friendships with watches that make a statement.
