With these tips you will find the perfect watch gift

I don't know about you, but shopping for presents always makes me happy. The anticipation of selecting the perfect gift and happy faces when unwrapping. Often it is easy; My brother likes good whiskey so that choice is easy, but sister-in-law needs a new watch. It is a lot more difficult to make such a personal choice. Still, looking for a suitable watch doesn't have to be difficult. With these tips, everyone can find the perfect watch gift! 


Tip 1: Using Wish Lists and Spies 

A bit of an open door, but the easiest is of course if the person you want to buy a gift for already has a specific watch on his or her wish list. If not, there's no shame in engaging a spy! Have a partner, parent or close friend carefully make some enquiries. This way you have a better idea of ​​what you are looking for. 


Tip 2: What is her/his favourite brand? 

Is the person you are looking for a watch for a fan of a certain brand? Does he always wear Hugo Boss suits? Or does she have a Michael Kors bag that she always carries around? Then these brands are a good place to start. You can expand your search with a look at similar brands, for example in addition to Hugo Boss also at Emporio Armani or in addition to Michael Kors also at Tommy Hilfiger.

And, colour is important too! If you opt for a neutral colour such as silver, gold, rose gold or black, the watch will suit almost any clothing style. Does the recipient have a favorite colour? Then choose a watch with, for example, a coloured dial, or with a different colour strap. On our site, you can filter your selection of watches by colour. 


Tip 4: How do you know what size of watch is needed? 

If you do not know the wrist size of the person for whom the watch is intended, it is best to choose a watch with a strap that does not need to be shortened. For example a leather or silicone strap. Prefer a metal bracelet? Mesh straps with a sliding clasp can easily be adjusted to the correct size by the wearer! Did you know that we custom size link bracelets for you free of charge? Secretly measure an old watch of the recipient. You can measure on the inside of the watch with a sheet of paper. With many metal bracelets, the wearer can in addition adjust the clasp a further few millimeters.
