  • Analog watches

These are absolutely timeless timepieces that have been around ever since people started wearing watches. From Seiko to Citizen and from Timex to Patek Phillipe there is something really elegant about an analog watch. They come in a wide variety of dials, shapes, and colors. These range from the large and somewhat euphemistically named BF watches, all the way to small and chic bejeweled timepieces that look just perfect on milady’s dainty wrist. Some of them have been equipped with Radium so that they glow in the dark and tell perfect time. Moreover, there are also plenty of others that have a backlit panel that can light up the entire display for a few seconds. Many analog watches also have a month, day/night, day and date feature too.  If you gift your friends an analog watch, especially one with large dials and date and day features, they will be sure to be on time, all the time.

  • Digital watches

They are a whole new take on the art of timekeeping. A digital watch is typically equipped with a liquid crystal display (LCD) that usually has a white background with black numerals on it. Today’s more modern watches have reverse displays and even multi-color ones. A digital watch can be used to not only set the time but also set an alarm (if it has that feature) to ensure that your friends always end up getting to their destinations on time. A powerful and sharp alarm is a great way to convince people to stop sleeping and procrastinating and start moving.

  • Swiss watches

When it comes to the best watches around, swiss made watches definitely rule the roost. Some of the very best brands in terms of durability, elegance, beauty, and reliability come from Switzerland. Names such as Rolex, Rado, and Formex are renowned the world over for their exceptional precision. They are treasured heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. Your friends can’t go far wrong with a Swiss-made watch that you have gifted them.  This has a lot to do with the overall quality and the many breathtaking and different designs of swiss made watches that are available today.  

  • Smartwatches

These are the very latest cutting-edge trend in the world of watches. Gifting someone such a watch means that they have truly joined the 21st century and all the opportunities it brings with it. A smartwatch can check your friend’s temperature, his or her sleeping patterns, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, heartbeat, and a whole lot more. It will not only help your friends keep their appointments but also take care of them and the way they live their lives. A smartwatch can even be synced to a personal computer and/or a smartphone so that you always know just when you should be doing something. This way, you will never miss out on crucial appointments at all. In a nutshell, a smartwatch can become your friend’s very own personal assistant.
