Making one wristwatch your go-to for every possible occasion or activity is a big NO! It’s like wearing the same pair of shoes with everything. Of course, some people can pull off one watch on almost any given occasion, but for the rest of us, we love having choices.
For example, you might want to wear a nice dress watch for a social weekend, and the next day you might want to wear your well-fitted sports timepiece. Honestly, there are so many watches and occasions that it can sometimes be hard to balance. Also, it’s not practical to buy all of them, given the budget constraint.
With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of the top seven watches perfect for every occasion. Whether business, leisure, a weekend trip, a party with friends, a wedding or a birthday present to yourself, it’s all covered!
When seated in the position of the highest authority, you’d want to project unwavering skill, power and elegance, and the classic IWC Portofino conveys all three. In the boardroom with clients, you want a watch that’s a nod to your personal style and is convincingly elegant, and this watch can subtly say that without going overboard.
The IWC Portofino IW5448-01 is a luxurious and stylish timepiece with a 46mm stainless steel case, steel bezel and a bold black dial featuring white Roman numeral hour markers and minute indications on the dial’s outer edge. There’s a small second’s sub-dial at 6 o’clock and phases of the moon sub-dial at 12 o’clock. The watch has a black leather strap that perfectly complements the overall design. IWC watchmakers have excelled at creating a minimal yet very professional watch.
When you think of a travel watch, you care about functionality as much as style. While brands like Rolex allow you to track different time zones with a 24-hour bezel (Rolex GMT Master), we’ve picked the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch for you. It has a great history and an instantly recognisable design, ensuring you stay on top of your game.
The Omega SpeedmasterMoonwatch Chronograph Ref. 3573.50.00 is one of Omega’s most iconic timepieces featuring a 42mm stainless steel case, a black tachymetry bezel, a black dial graced by a 30-minute recorder, small seconds sub-dial, a 12-hour recorder, a central chronograph hand, and a matching steel bracelet. It is an impressive presentation of the brand’s adventurous spirit and will definitely enhance your globe-trotting style.
Making a good first impression on your first date is important. You would want to choose something that defines your style and personality without boasting, ‘I own 9 nice watches’. Therefore, it’s best to go with something casual yet classy. The Tag Heuer Carrera will help you broadcast your fashion statement like no other. The watch manages to look humble yet handsome on the wrist.
What we pick is the Tag Heuer Carrera Ref. WBP201B.BA0632 that shines out for its alluring style. Powered by the Calibre 5, the watch flaunts a 43mm stainless steel case surrounded by a vibrant blue unidirectional ceramic bezel with 12 facets, and a rich blue sunray brushed dial featuring dot & baton hour markers. If your date involves spending quality time on a yacht, you’re bound to stand out.
You can never go wrong with a nice dress watch on your Big Day. And, what better than a JLC Reverso to mark the special occasion? It is the watch for a gala dinner, a wedding, an anniversary, etc. The story of this watch goes back to 1930, and even after 93 years, it still amazes us with its remarkable design and elegance.
The JLC Reverso Classic Monoface watch with Ref. Q2618540 is hands down one of the most classic timepieces created by the brand. The iconic aesthetics of the Art Deco style and the Reverso’s exclusive attributes make for a respectable combination. The watch has a 21mm steel case integrated into an elegant blue leather strap. Boasting perfect proportions, the feminine model hooks with the silvered grey satin-finish dial decorated with black transferred numerals. This watch is surely a hot take and makes for an extravagant addition to your collection.
An investment watch will fetch you a good return on investment years after you’ve worn it. And we have only one name that resonates, Rolex. No other brand holds value like Rolex, and you can rest assured to sell Rolex watches at a good price. The watches can go from the bar to the bedroom and scream your status.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 116519LN remains in a class of its own among sports chronographs and secures a great reputation as an investment timepiece. Crafted in 18ct white gold, this 40mm timepiece has a black cerachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale and a meteorite dial featuring baton indices and three black sub-dials. The watch’s collectability, historical significance, timeless design and a strong resale value make it a wise investment option.
You deserve a treat and do not have to wait for any significant event to gift yourself a nice luxury watch. You’re every bit worthy of saying to yourself, “well done me”! Take a moment to thank yourself for all the little unsaid victories you achieve daily with a watch that reminds you of the many wonderful moments.
The Cartier Tank has been an iconic timepiece for the past 100 years and will remain so for the next 100. Whether it is the design, brand history or Royal connection, there’s something inherently classic about this timepiece that makes it so desirable. The Tank Must Ref. WSTA0059 comes in a 33.7mm x 25.5mm stainless steel case, stainless steel bezel, an elegant silver dial with blued-steel sword-shaped hands and a black strap. The Tank is comfortably the most versatile in Cartier’s entire category and is the ultimate thumbs-up you could give yourself!
Some things never go out of style, like white t-shirts and blue jeans, a little black dress and an all-girls night out, etc. Likewise, a few versatile timepieces go down well with almost anything and everything. The all-rounder kind of watch strikes the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics, making it a must-wear for various occasions.
Unlock endless possibilities with the Panerai Luminor Ref. PAM01084. The elegant timepiece has a 44mm stainless steel case, a steel bezel, a bold black dial with seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a Calf Ponte Vecchio black strap. The watch has a strong presence on the wrist and captivates with a truly distinctive style.
Luxury watches symbolise style, status, and personality and will make a lasting impression on anyone who sees them. All the watches listed above make for an exceptional addition to your collection. So, choose the one that suits your taste and personality and make your special occasion even more memorable.
