Cupid's target: Jean Paul Gaultier

If the man in your life has a taste for the unusual, the Jean Paul Gaultier Cible watch just might pique his interest. Featuring a unique target design, this unique watch is as colourful as the eccentric French designer himself. Perfect for everyday wear, this timepiece can make the transition from office to bar with ease.

Blue midnight magic: Olivia Burton

Olivia Burton has built its retro-elegant reputation with designs that incorporate matt tones and nature-inspired designs. The 3D Bee watch in midnight navy ticks all those boxes and takes things one step further with a touch of beautiful, metallic detailing on the face. Both sophisticated and fun, it'll add a playful twist to a classic trousers-and-blouse combo.


Classic meets modern: Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss has been at the forefront of men's fashion for a long time, recognised worldwide for sleek, masculine, and sophisticated designs. This striking blue and stainless steel watch blends classic styling with modern influences, featuring a vintage-inspired leather strap; cool, contemporary deep blue face; and delicate, minimal, gold-colour markers. An elegant watch, pair it with a favourite slimline suit for a smart finish.


Black, white and rose gold: Daniel Wellington

Daniel Wellington has a knack for taking the beauty of classic design and giving it a subtle, modern twist. This elegant ladies watch is versatile enough to be worn every single day, with its ice-white leather bracelet and oversized black dial that can be effortlessly paired with both casual and formal attire.

Black on black: Michael Kors

Michael Kors is often associated with bold designs that command attention, but this black men's watch takes a slightly more understated approach. Its uniform black design has a sleek, modern appeal, so it can easily hold its own on the sports pitch (if you're brave enough to wear it) or in a restaurant on date night without dominating your look.


Classic and elegant: Fossil

Fossil has always had a knack for producing beautiful watches that have a premium finish. This men's gold Fossil timepiece is a fine example, combining a classic gold exterior with a simple brown leather strap and cream face. Gold hands and hour markers finish an item that epitomises the quiet, classic cool Fossil is so good at.
