How to Pick the Right Watch for Your Valentine
The stakes are high on Valentine’s Day. When you are shopping for just one special someone, there’s very little room for error.
While flowers or chocolate are a great way to say “I love you,” you may want to indulge your love with something longer lasting. For the perfect gift, consider a timeless classic — a watch to suit his or her personal style. But remember, one watch will not fit all personalities or lifestyles.
“The right watch can nurture the spirit of individuality and communicate one’s sense of style,” says Matthew Shell, vice president of product development at watch brand Armitron.
With that in mind, Shell offers these suggestions for finding the right watch for your loved one:
For those who love looking their best, coordination of accessories is key. So whether you opt to find a watch strap made of genuine leather, or go for a bracelet style watch , look for a versatile timepiece that can transition from day to night or be dressed down or dressed up depending on the occasion. Before making a selection, consider your recipient’s favorites — taking preferences like gold versus silver and vintage versus modern into account.
Enhance your loved one’s training efforts with a bold, sporty watch built to move. For example, Armitron Pro-Sport Digital watches feature lap timing, stop watches and chronographs to help runners, swimmers and other athletes push past their goals. Water resistant to 330 feet, this category of watches offers multicolored dials, soft touch resin straps, chrome bezels and silver tone buckle closures.
If your gift recipient already has a favorite watch for everyday wear, consider something elegant that can — but doesn’t have to be — reserved for special occasions. For instance, a bangle watch functions as jewelry and timepiece, putting form and function on the same level. Or for him, a watch featuring a diamond dial.
The confident one:
For the confident man, consider an automatic watch that does not require batteries to operate. The stainless steel automatic watch from Armitron has a skeleton movement and luminous dials.
To make Valentine’s Day a success, consider the classic gift of a watch to show that your love is timeless.
