We’re kick-starting this guide to the Best Men’s Watches for Christmas 2023 with a brand that we’ve recently welcomed into our stores. TUDOR. The Black Bay 58 is a relatively young sub-collection for the iconic dive watch range and pays homage to the manufacturer’s very first dive watch. It might be that your loved one already adores the style of the Black Bay, or maybe he’s a keen fan of dive watches in general. If so, the neo-vintage style of the Black Bay 58 may just hit the spot this Christmas. Its 39mm stainless steel case is pleasantly compact. The man in your life may not be taking this watch 200 meters underwater, but if he wanted to, he could. It features all the typical traits of the Black Bay series, including the stylish “Snowflake” hands, a unidirectional rotating and even a reliable Manufacture movement.
Chopard is another prestigious brand we have welcomed into our stores and e-commerce platforms this year. The famous Swiss jewellery manufacturer and watchmaker is renowned for designs like the Mille Miglia Chronograph. The sports watch has deep connections to the world’s most famous regularity race for classic cars. A love of beautiful engineering and performance is shared between both the sporting event and the watchmaker in this design. The collection is born of the company founder, Karl-Friedrich’s love of cars and motor racing. This model features a 40.5mm steel case, housing a chronometer-certified movement inside. Its Nero Corsa black-coloured dial is obtained by a special galvanic treatment and boasts a stunning engine-turned finish. If the man in your life likes to pick out the finer details of the watch, this sporty Mille Miglia watch from Chopard, infused with quintessential racing spirit, might be the perfect present this Christmas.
Sharing your life with a pilot watch lover? Make him ultra-happy this Christmas by slipping this Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun watch under the tree. The watch is part of a series that dedicates its coloured ceramic cases to the shades of the naval aviation world. The company’s extensive know-how in producing colourful ceramic cases goes far beyond this Jet Black iteration, however. There are Mohave Desert, Woodland, Lake Tahoe and Oceana-inspired colours too. This black ceramic model measuring 41mm, however, is a great addition to any pilot watch enthusiast’s collection. It features a comfortable black rubber strap integrated with the brand’s EasX-CHANGE system and a trio of chronograph functions for effortless stopwatch timings.
How does a robust watch like the Breitling Avenger still look so refined? It just does. Its pilot watch credentials are designed to take on any situation in the cockpit. To help with this, it features large luminescent baton hour markers and visible central hands. A pop of red is afforded to the dial, while the minutes and seconds around the flange stand out against a rich blue dial via a legible black ring. Next-level functionality is guaranteed in the design of the Breitling Avenger watch. The range also features ceramic models and Night Mission iterations designed for those who consider the easy-grip design of the bezel and the 200-meter water-resistant case crucial features in a watch.
Go classic this Christmas with a chronograph from TAG Heuer. The brand has an impressive reputation for crafting sporty chronograph designs, particularly those from the Carrera collection. Designs like these are inspired by racing and take their name from the Panamericana Mexican road race. The design was the brainchild of the company founder’s great-grandson, Jack Heuer. This model sports a rich blue dial colour, a compact 39mm stainless steel case and a classic blue leather band. It’s a great option for pairing with smart casual attire over the weekend. Your partner may have several chronograph watches already, but does he own a racing-inspired Carrera watch from TAG Heuer?
Is your lover the kind who would appreciate the mission-ready aesthetics of the Supermarine watch from Bremont? If so, the 40mm S302 model is worth a look. I love the fact that Bremont has been bold enough to play about with a bit of colour in this design. It features a GMT function via the popular two-tone bezel design that travellers and watch fans alike go mad for. A seaweed green hue differentiates the daytime hours from the blue nighttime hours in this 200-meter water-resistant Bremont Supermarine S302 watch. To keep track of local time, the central hands are coated with plenty of Super-LumiNova, while home time can be read around the bezel with the orange triangular-tipped GMT hand. It’s a great option for any fan of the British watchmaker and anyone who travels regularly.
The instrument panel-inspired watches from Bell & Ross are a popular choice for anyone who loves aviation watches with a twist. The Blue Steel version in this circle-within-a-square design is particularly eye-catching. Ideal as a gift this Christmas, the watch is practical and robust enough to be worn the entire year through. A sapphire crystal glass front protects the surface of a rich blue sunray dial adorned with Arabic numerals and stick markers for the hours. The watch also comes fitted on a comfortable blue calfskin strap and a pin buckle crafted from stainless steel to match the material of the case. Above all, these Bell & Ross watches are built to the specifications of the Air Forces and have been a steady pillar of the brand since 2006.
Blue dials are certainly on-trend this season. This Longines Spirit watch is yet another example of one. This time, the watch is accompanied by a blue ceramic bezel displaying a 24-hour time scale for tracking another time zone. The Longines Spirit watch will make a beautiful and practical gift this Christmas 2023 and extends on the brand’s precision instruments worn by some of the world’s greatest pioneers. An ergonomically pleasing stainless steel case measures a 39mm diameter and is fitted with a sophisticated three-link stainless steel bracelet for pairing with more formal attire when the need arises.
This Gucci Dive watch appears with the bee motif at 12 o’clock on its dial. The famous Fashion House is renowned for the use of its stars, bees, cats and snakes – all of which represent the dynamic and daring style of the brand’s many chic and unisex creations. This men’s dive watch features a sleek black dial, an accompanying black unidirectional rotating bezel and luminous markings on the dial for enhanced readability. Remember, whether your partner takes to the water often or not, the popularity of the dive watch is attributed to several other factors. They are rugged, robust and built for everyday wear. They also tend to offer some of the most streamlined designs on the market, like this Gucci Dive watch, finished on a sturdy steel bracelet.
Designed with explorers in mind, the 1858 Iced Sea watch alludes to the depths of a glacier. It displays the fissures and minerals captured in the glass-like ice through the design of its dial. Inspired by the Mer de Glace, the dial boasts a glacial texture that is particularly fitting for the winter months ahead of us. This watch, equipped with an interchangeable bracelet, comes in a 41mm size and offers an impressive water resistance of 300 meters. Its luminous markings and the opportunity to switch the strap over are two features that will come in handy if your loved one frequently takes to the water for exploration.
If the man in your life has a smaller-sized wrist, don’t let the 42mm dimensions of this watch put you off. Seiko is known for manufacturing dive watches that, despite their size, wear smaller on the wrist. This Seiko Prospex Diver's GMT watch delivers the time on a strikingly beautiful rich green dial. With Lumibrite on the hands and hour markers, measuring elapsed time with the unidirectional rotating bezel is made super easy. What’s more, this steel model, equipped with a water-resistant capability of 200 meters, also comes with a screw-down crown and a strong sapphire crystal glass front. Most importantly – the watch is a GMT. Ideal for keeping track of home time, a yellow arrow-tipped hand aligns with a 24-hour track. The feature allows your loved one to stay in touch with you even when work commitments set him thousands of miles apart.
Sporty, chic and retro – the Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 in Ice Blue is a classic companion for the wrist. Its pale blue dial shade applied to a waffle-effect surface is perfect for the winter season. Crisp and cool, the Ice Blue dial presents the time on a simple three-handed layout equipped with a date window at 3 o’clock. As its name suggests, the movement sitting inside the watch is a pretty reliable one. The Powermatic 80 performs at 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a power reserve of 80 hours once fully wound. Of course, being a sports watch, one of the key features of this Tissot PRX watch is the interchangeable bracelet. Its flat, brushed links create a retro-inspired finish on the wrist and secure with a butterfly clasp and push buttons.
