Roses are red, violets are blue, 8 perfect watches to say ‘I love you’
Published on 11 February 2021
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, which means time is running out for the perfect — and perfectly extravagant — gesture. The gift of time, hopefully time well-spent together, is the ideal expression of love. And what better symbol for shared time than a watch.
We’ve put together a list of charming pieces, for both men and women, that will surprise and delight this February 14.
Looking to share the love with a matching set? Look no further than Piaget. The Possession is a signature line for the Geneva-based brand, and in rose gold, with diamond hours markers, it’s a charmer. There’s one more diamond, and that’s the brilliant-cut 0.07 carat stone on the freely rotating outer bezel. While the Polo S may lack the sparkle of the Possession, it can certainly hold its own. The 42mm rose gold case cuts a dashing figure, especially on the dark blue alligator strap. Piaget Possession and Polo adds up to pure passion.
Dive into love with the Luminor Due from Italian brand Panerai. Making the most of the famous Luminor case silhouette with its crown guard, the Due collection pairs the rugged origins of these iconic watches with refined materials and finishes. The 42mm model features a Goldtech case with a velvety black sun-brushed texture and matching black alligator strap for maximum luxury. The slightly larger 45mm Luminor Due model in steel offers a softer palette, with its polished 316L steel case, brushed grey dial and warm, vintage-toned hour markers make this a cool moonlit companion to the bright gold model.
If you’re looking to make a big romantic statement this Valentine’s Day, then look no further than the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Le Petit Prince”. At 46.2mm across, this watch is bound to make an impression. The blue dial is a tribute to the famous work by author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a tale of wonder and exploration. The mechanism behind the dial of this IWC is quite wonderful too, with a power reserve of seven days.
This 34mm steel watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre may be petite, but it’s packed with elegant detail. The silver guilloché dial reveals an elegant lacquered nighty sky set with clouds and a silver disc of the moon. The shine doesn’t stop there as the dial and case are set with two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds, a beguiling and discreet timepiece perfect for the love of your life.
It’s hard to go wrong with the classics when it comes to gifting, and watches don’t come much more classic than Cartier. Add an even more romantic touch by opting for steel and gold cases, symbolising the perfect union of two materials. The smaller model is the Panthère de Cartier, with its luscious bracelet. The larger model is the bolder Santos de Cartier with a polished yellow gold bezel. After all, what could be more exciting than opening a red Cartier box this Valentine’s Day
