I don’t know – he’s none of my concern.
What about the guy who doesn’t really buy a lot of stuff for himself, but enjoys the finer things on occasion, and is a little bit stylish with a great sense of humour?
That – we can tackle. And this year, we’re all about the statement watch.
Black to the future
It’s stylish, it’s unique, it’s modern and it’s retro, all in one. The architectural Black Dice Hustle Watch, £74.99, features a genuine leather strap, an analogue configuration, and a whole lot of attitude.
This is a chunky fashion statement thats modernistic design means your guy could still wear it years from now.
It’s water resistant to 5 ATM, which is a bonus for forgetful blokes, and in black, it will go with everything.
Everybody’s going retro and your boyfriend should be no exception. Urban Outfitters is the king when it comes to urban cool gear, and we’re loving the look of the Casio Mens Silver Watch. It’s reminiscent of your dad’s wristwear in 1988, which means it’s perfect for the here and now. £35 and you’ve got yourself a slice of history…thats brand new.
Let’s get digital
If your guy is always on the go and doesn’t have time for silly things like reading analogue watches, go digital.
The key to buying a more sporty watch is to choose a piece that can be worn in and outside the gym with comfort and style rolled into one.
This Diesel Digital Watch is a tidy £67.53, with a doubled-edged design that lends itself to a whole host of boy situations.
The polyurethane strap and simple timer mechanism are perfect for working out, while the sleek watch face is smart enough for work and play.
The two-year warranty and durability of the design will ensure he’ll get a whole lot of wear out of it, meaning you get more bang for your buck.
It’s not easy to whip out a tape measure without raising suspicion, so if you have no way to get the data, don’t buy him a fixed size piece.
If you do, however, go for a link strap style, you can get a link taken out at the jewellers fairly inexpensively, but if it’s too small to start with, you’re out of luck.
Heed my words…I speak from experience!
A watch is a great gift for your special guy, especially if you want something with a bit of sentimental weight, and he’s not a jewellery kind of dude.
