One for Her, One for Me: Top Pair watches11:04 am
A combination that you probably never thought existed in modern watchmaking is a rage this festive season: pair watches. A trend that not surprisingly, is also catching on to every major brand today – who happen to have their own unique set of couple watches! Be it a growing number of women interested in complicated mechanical watches or a growing diversity of the trend in general, the rage is picking up and getting popular more so with the festive season around the corner. Some of these watches may not have necessarily been intended as a pair combination either! But if you ask us, coordinated watches are a much more personal, thoughtful way to define your unique relationship + they make great gifts for special occasions (any day over cliché gifts).
So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, make way for the perfect couple watches:
The Sporty Couple – TAG Heuer Formula 1
“In cricket and in life, all the important things happen at home.” And it doesn’t matter if she doesn’t follow sport as much as you do. If you’re looking for something sporty, something that’ll be an integral part of your watch collection, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 is the perfect match and we’re sure your better half will like the ladies Formula 1 too!
Comfortably sized with tough looks, neat strap and accurate TAG Swiss Quartz movements make both these watches the ‘winning’ couple.
The Classic Couple – Frederique Constant Classics
“We never go out of style.” And rightly so! A classic watch (no matter how simple it might look to be) never goes out of style. The ideal classic combination should be legible, tasteful and suit each other’s personality. Our pick? The Frederique Constant Classics pair. Living by the motto of letting everyone enjoy luxury, both these watches are made of a durable stainless steel case, mounted by a gold plated bezel with a polished finish and a flawless automatic movement, making this combination an admirable choice at a really reasonable price!
The Stylish Couple – Rado
A classic dress watch is slim, powerful and has a mechanical movement. A solid steel or precious metal case with a two tone solid bracelet, and you’re good to go. The winner in this category? Without a doubt, the Hyperchrome from the most loved and popular watch brand in India: Rado.
Beautifully designed around the iconic Hyperchrome design, both these watches have a silver coloured dial in a rose gold toned stainless steel and ceramos case. Rose gold toned indexes are engraved as hour markers and black toned hour hands that have been polished with super- luminova for that extra bit of legibility. The men’s version has an automatic movement whilst the ladies pair is powered by an accurate and reliable quartz movement.
The Weekend Couple – Tissot
Weekends are always about something different! Trick here is to go for something that is robust and relatively inexpensive. Tissot makes for great Swiss Made timepieces that don’t cost the earth and the T-Classic Dream is that inexpensive pair you can add to your collection.
Simple, yet sophisticated in every way with it’s stainless steel bracelet, reliable quartz movement and the white dial with engraved roman numerals. The simplicity and sophistication of this pair is what makes it our favourite, and you’ll realize that when you have it on your wrist. Robust, reliable and won’t burn a hole in your pocket, you can’t go wrong with this combination!
The Party Couple – Omega
Party watches need to be an item of jewellery as well as impression. Opt for a classic, good looking watch that will make all the heads turn towards your wrist. And since it’s all about making an impression, go for a good brand but nothing too flashy; you’ll convey success by not trying too hard. We suggest you pick the familiar Omega DeVille combination. Good looks backed by a trusted brand and a dependable movement.
Summarized: the perfect party watch.
