Historically a watch has been the choice gift for that particular someone. However in these times of financial instability the demand is soaring for a timepiece that offers quality, elegance, and that smattering of luxury within reach of a much-reduced budget.

The face of this timepiece is incredibly flat, 1.9mm for the detail-conscious among you, and the textured leather strap is a fitting contrast to the stainless steel casing and guilloche pattern on the dials. Oh – it’s 30m water-resistant and Swiss-made to boot (no argument there!) €560.00 Weir and Sons, Dundrum Town Centre and Grafton Street.
