Shopping for men’s watches for Christmas is no easy task, so we’ve been busy compiling a list of our favourite luxury watches for men here at Jura Watches. From Bremont’s British Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze watch to a special Petit Prince Edition watch from IWC Schaffhausen’s pilot’s watch range, we’ve got plenty to offer the stylish watch collector here at Jura Watches this festive season. Let’s get started…
IWC Portugieser Chronograph Watch
Imagine the look on your partner’s face when he opens his Christmas gift this year and it’s the IWC Portugieser Chronograph – an icon in the Schaffhausen-based manufacturer’s catalogue. Its compact 41mm diameter will fit almost any wrist and when accompanied with its slim bezel, which opens up the dial further, it feels a touch larger too. The steel men’s IWC Portugieser Chronograph is powered the in-house developed 69355 Calibre which comprises a total of 194 individual hand-assembled components. Beating at a rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour and delivering a 46-hour power reserve, the wearer can swap this timepiece over with another favourite, safe in the knowledge that it will keep perfect time. One of the most distinctive features of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph is its bi-compax dial layout, which features 30-minutes and a small seconds sub-dial at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively against a silvered dial. Complete with Feuille-shaped hands and a classic black leather strap, this Christmas gift for him is a practical investment piece that can be worn all year through.
IWC Big Pilot Edition Le Petit Prince Watch
Fans of the classic pilot’s watch will no doubt already have a timepiece from the IWC Big Pilot’s collection on their Christmas list. The Le Petit Prince Edition pays homage to the literacy work of Antoine de Saint Exupéry, the famous French pilot and novelist, with a poignant design clad in deep blue and steel tones. Characterised by a specially engraved caseback depicting the Prince with his sword and cape, the IWC Big Pilot’s Edition Le Petit Prince watch is a special commemorative timepiece that gives the wearer that feel of exclusivity without even belonging to a limited edition collection. The midnight blue dial of this IWC watch is accompanied by luminous hands that are powered by the in-house 52110 Calibre. It also presents a power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock. Finished on a brown calfskin strap, this watch for Christmas exudes a vintage-inspired feel despite being fitted with some of the Maison’s’ most up-to-date horological technology.
Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Watch
Breitling dared to break away from the conformist quartz watch at an integral time within the Swiss watch industry’s history with the first Chronomat in 1984 – but are you daring enough to wear it? Whether you’re looking for an excuse to splash out on a self-indigent treat this Christmas or on a quest to find the ultimate watch as a Christmas gift this year – you couldn’t go far wrong with the Breitling Chronomat 42. Dressed in sleek black and lustrous stainless steel tones, the watch creates a presence on the wrist with its 42mm case and iconic bezel adorned with the unmistakable rider tabs. The Chronomat has earned itself a prominent place in Breitling’s catalogue. Now it’s time to guarantee it a place in your collection. Its features include a chronograph, red-coated central chronograph hand, date, tachymeter scale and 200-meter water resistance. As well as an in-house made Calibre that promises a 70-hour power reserve, it also comes equipped with a distinct Rouleaux bracelet – a design that was made solely for the Breitling Chronomat watch collection.
Breitling Superocean Heritage 57 Watch
The Breitling Superocean Heritage 57 watch nods to the laid-back surfer lifestyle of the 1960s and boasts a distinct aesthetic characterised by a broad black bidirectional rotating bezel with a frilled 18ct rose gold trim. The steel case which is water-resistant to 100m, also protects the Breitling 10 Calibre inside its rugged housing. The movement provides a 48-hour power reserve and powers a set of rose gold luminous-coated hands around a sleek black dial. If the person you’re Christmas shopping for this festive season is partial to a retro-inspired watch, it has to be the Breitling Superocean Heritage 57 this year.
Bremont MBII Black Jet Watch
Round off 2020 in style with a British watch brand like Bremont, who since 2012, has been dedicating its focus on celebrating the best of British manufacture. Underscoring its partnership with the Martin Baker British Aviation Company, the MBII Black Jet watch from Bremont is subject to the same stringent tests undergone by Martin Baker ejection seats to promise remarkable resilience and durability. The shock-resistant watch pays reference to this anti-shock technology on the front of its black dial, equipped with luminous hands and Arabic hour markers, a legible minute track and date window. Bremont fans, Martin Baker enthusiasts and those with a preference for quintessential British manufacture will appreciate this Bremont watch for Christmas. Its comfortable ‘Chalgrove’ high-performance bi-material strap with grey stitched detailing makes a statement on the wrist and an engraved bronze coloured coin inlaid into the back of a sealed steel 100-meter water-resistant caseback depicts the words “tested beyond endurance”. A 43mm patented inner bidirectional Roto-Click bezel and chronometer-certified BE-36AE automatic movement deems this Bremont MBII watch the ultimate companion for 2021.
Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze Watch
Did you know that Bremont is the only watch manufacturer allowed to use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services (the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force) on its timepieces? You do now! And that’s why this exquisite bronze Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword watch will make for such a great gift for him this Christmas. It was originally designed as a contemporary take on the three-handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch design, commissioned for the British Army during World War Two, but now it has worked its way onto the wrists of modern-day military personnel and collectors alike, with its case that develops its own unique patina over time and stunning slate-coloured dial. If Bremont is good enough to be recognised by the MoD to create these special timepieces for the British Armed Forces collection, their most loyal fans are certainly worthy enough to wear them.
TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 Watch
If there’s one thing we can be sure of it’s that the iconic TAG Heuer Monaco watch will never go out of fashion. Its distinct square-shaped case and matching square-shaped chronograph counters achieve a look that no other manufacturer has ever been able to replicate. This TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 is powered by one of the Swiss brand’s most trusted movements and features the distinct Monaco blue dial, striking red chronograph hands and markers, and a date aperture a 6 o’clock. Once stylized on the wrist of Steve McQueen, the TAG Monaco watch has never been able to shake off its unmistakable, highly sought-after look – and why would it? The watch is completed on a black calfskin strap with a special racing track-inspired finish and a TAG Heuer engraved steel buckle for securing devotedly to the wrist.
TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Watch
Master in sports watches and chronographs - TAG Heuer - don’t do things by halves. This Carrera Chronograph watch features the original black chronograph dial that the company has since become so recognised for. The timepiece boasts the familiar 3-6-9 chronograph layout offering minutes, seconds and hours respectively. A date aperture is neatly nestled at 6 o’clock, while the hands and hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova for assisting with timekeeping in the dark. Without a doubt, this is a watch for all occasions. Enjoy its sophisticated stainless steel link bracelet with formal attire, or combine it with something casual over the weekend for a sportier look. The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph watch is powered by the Calibre Heuer 02, which offers a 40-hour power reserve and sits inside a 100-meter water-resistant steel case. This is the all-rounder men’s Chronograph watch for those with classic taste.
