Forget the chocolates, this year, celebrate romance with some wrist candy
Valentine’s Day is approaching and a gift is necessary.
February is here, which means it’s almost Valentine’s Day. This year, honor the day that commemorates love with a gift that your significant other will truly cherish – a Rolex watch. To make gift giving super simple, we’ve rounded up some of our top picks that would make for the perfect V-Day present for him or her whether your loved one is sporty, classic, or casual chic.
For the classic ones
The Datejust collection epitomizes the classic Rolex watch. Arguably the brand’s most versatile collection, with a plethora of metals, dial materials, color combinations, and sizes, it’s a breeze to find that perfect everyday luxury watch for both him and her. The Datejust II is an updated version of the traditional men’s Datejust with a larger Oyster case sized at 41mm. The Datejust II 116333 bears the hallmarks of a classic Rolex with an 18k yellow gold and stainless steel two-tone case and bracelet, along with the gold fluted bezel, and gold Roman numerals and hands on the black dial.
Datejust II 116333 & Ladies Datejust 178271 make great gifts.
Gold and diamonds are always a good choice for a ladies’ Rolex and this mid-size Ladies Datejust 178271 combines the strength of stainless steel with the warmth of pink gold and the sparkle of diamonds in a piece that is classically elegant. The 31mm Oyster case is topped with the fluted Everrose bezel that matches perfectly with the pink dial and the watch is presented on the two-tone Jubilee bracelet.
For the sporty ones
Rolex is known for their very popular sports watches, so if your better half leans towards a more sporty style, then you are spoilt for choice. For the gents, you cannot go wrong with a stainless steel Submariner, the quintessential diver’s watch that has a history stretching back to 1953. The 40mm stainless steel case, black rotatable bezel, black dial with large lume plots and luminescent Mercedes style hands, and robust stainless steel Oyster bracelet of the Submariner 16610 has fantastic masculine appeal and can be comfortably worn in any setting without ever looking out of place.
Submariner 16610 & Cosmograph Daytona 16528 amatch made in heaven.
Although the Daytona is originally designed for men, plenty of women have chosen the Rolex chronograph for themselves, appreciating the contrast of a sporty and oversized watch on a feminine wrist. For a Cosmograph Daytona with a real wow factor, opt for the 18k solid gold Daytona 16528 with a black dial and champagne sub-dials. This golden beauty is equipped with an 18k yellow gold engraved tachymeter bezel on top of the 40mm Oyster case, screw down crown and pushers for optimal water resistance and a full gold Oyster bracelet.
For the casual chic ones
Nothing says jet-set elegance like a GMT-Master, originally created for pilots to keep track of dual time zones while traveling. One of the most in-demand Rolex GMT models right now is the GMT-Master II 116710BLNR with its two-tone bezel in black and blue. Part of the brand’s current collection, the “Batman” watch as it’s commonly known, features fantastic updates over its predecessors such as a Cerachrom bezel in super tough ceramic, the dynamic “Maxi Dial” with larger lume plots, and a redesigned 40mm Oyster case that wears larger than past versions.
GMT-Master II 116710BLNR & Yacht-Master 168622 for those who are too cool for school.
For her, the midsize Yacht-Master 168622 is a casual chic, yet luxurious option. The stainless steel 35mm Oyster case and stainless steel Oyster bracelet is beautifully accented with a platinum rotatable bezel and platinum dial. On the dial sits oversized luminescent hour-markers, luminescent Mercedes style hands and a red seconds-hand that match the red “Yacht-Master” label. The ladies’ Yacht-Master is also equipped with a date function that can be seen at 3 o’clock under the Cyclops lens affixed to the sapphire crystal.
So this Valentine’s Day, don’t get caught without a special token of your unwavering love and get your shopping done early so you can relax and enjoy each other’s company.
