Nils Rau

Christmas is just a few weeks away. If you haven't found all your gifts yet, it's slowly time to make your final purchases. To help you decide, today we present six watch brands that are not only well-received at Christmas Read on to discover the best gifts for watch lovers in every price category - from Breitling to TAG Heuer. All watches with the green "Just in time for Xmas" banner in our online shop will be shipped in time for the festive season.

Moments of joy

Christmas is the most contemplative time of the year: the hectic everyday life takes a break, we are surrounded by candlelight and contemplative decorations, and we spend the festive season with our loved ones. Giving and receiving gifts are also an integral part of this ceremony. In this context, high-quality wristwatches stand for the highest of all feelings: not necessarily because luxury watches have a high inherent material value. Instead, they are characterised by an outstanding value. We wear our watches on our bodies every day, and they often accompany us for several years or even decades. A watch as a gift also symbolises the gift of time together.
