Wtches to Give as Gifts for Christmas

The classic sports watches
There are those like Hermes who not many years ago dedicated a timepiece to the sport dear to the maison: horse riding. The watch in question is called Galop and is the result of Ini Archibong’s obsessive search for all the horse accessories taken from Hermes: bits, stirrups … Note of originality, the symbol of infinity is transformed: an upside-down stirrup. Technically it can boast a quartz movement made in Switzerland and a domed anti-reflective glass.

Even Longines, famous for being one of the brands that sells the most in the world, is madly in love with the world of sport: timekeeper in the ski world cup and main sponsor of the Longines Global Champions Tour for horse riding. The Conquest for women was born from the desire to create an elegant yet sporty watch, perfect for watching or participating in an equestrian competition.

The Bvlgari Alluminium, strictly unisex, embodies the meaning of “sport” for Bvlgari: pure lines and an unmistakably fashionable attitude, expressed through a surprising design with a graphic character. The new collection is simple, but strikes with a fresh and sassy approach that defies the conventions of traditional luxury watchmaking, just as it did more than 20 years ago when it was created in its first version. It was also recently awarded as an “Iconic Watch” by the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie.

For those who prefer to focus on a less precious watch, the offer on the market is vast: from the typical Swatch to the Sector which, as the claim itself says, are “No Limits” and in the total black version also chic.

Technologically surprising, today smartwatches are able to help us manage calls, emails, messages but above all they can become a real portable personal trainer, without losing style. In fact, there are many functions for athletes: counting calories burned, counting steps, sleep monitoring just to mention the basic ones.

The most famous is undoubtedly the Apple Watch, now in its sixth version, it can measure oxygen in the blood, has an integrated altimeter and can record any type of training, as well as being equipped with a sports strap in fluoroelastomer, sturdy and soft, with the innovative pin-and-tuck closure.

For golf lovers specifically, Tag-Heur comes to the rescue by creating a watch, from the Connected line, entirely dedicated to golf. The designer timepiece is able to calculate distances between holes, report water obstacles, keep points and statistics by connecting to a specially designed app.
