Tips to Surprising Your Loved One With the Watch of Their Dreams

September 15th, 2022

A designer timepiece is one of the most luxurious gifts you can give. Because they are sentimental and valuable, selecting the perfect timepiece for your loved one is no small task. We’ve put together a guide to explore the characteristics they’ll love in a watch without giving away the surprise.

Figure Out Their Size

Firstly, you’ll need to determine the size of your loved one’s wrist to ensure the timepiece’s strap comfortably fits them. You can do this in several ways. Use a string to measure the length of one of their favorite watches when laid flat. You could also ask their close friends if they can help you slyly figure out their size by asking leading but not obvious questions.

Ask Their Close Friends and Family

You can also consult their closest friends and family to see if your gift’s recipient has mentioned any specific styles of watches they’ve been interested in buying themselves.

If your loved one is particularly fond of watches or is a collector, they’ve likely discussed this with the people close to them. They could also help you by starting conversations about timepieces to see if they can fish out any helpful information.

Check Out Their Social Media

Watch enthusiasts and buyers alike will often research the products they think of buying on social media. Do some sleuthing to see if your loved one has followed any watch brands, liked any recent photos of celebrities’ watches, etc. Their social media follows can give you immense insight into the styles of watches they love.

Take Note of Their Current Watch Collection

It’s also beneficial to assess the styles of watches they already own. For one, you don’t want to buy them a watch all too similar to one they already own and wear. But, you can also use their existing collection to gain clues into the color schemes, complications, and overall styles they are particularly drawn towards. You might also find that their collection is missing a particular type of watch you think might be helpful for them to have.

Assess Their Personal Style

One of the most helpful things you can do when determining what type of watch they might like is to assess their unique style. Pay special attention to how they dress, decorate their living spaces, the kind of art they are drawn to, and other ways they express their style.

Do they tend toward the more minimal or eccentric? Do they prefer muted color schemes or vibrant ones? This information will be tantamount to picking a timepiece they’ll love to wear for years to come.
