These Swanky Timepieces Make Great Christmas Presents

Why gift your loved one a watch this Christmas? One, it's both a stylish and practical accessory. Two, you can wear a watch to various occasions, both casual and formal. Three, a watch can come in handy at work. And four, you can find a watch that suits different lifestyles.

So if you consider getting your close friends or relatives a watch, we highly recommend Swiss Made timepieces like Tissot because of their tradition of producing high-quality pieces—which is how the Swiss came to dominate watchmaking. For durable, wear-forever pieces, there's no doubt you can rely on Tissot. The Swiss brand has been in the art of watchmaking for 170 years and has earned a reputation for crafting durable and quality timepieces.

Below, five Tissot watches the modern man will love:

Tissot Gentleman Powermatic 80 Silicium (P45,800)

Classic with understated sophistication, the Gentleman Powermatic 80 is a suitable companion for business environments, weekend leisure activities, formal and informal events, sporty or smart occasions, and everything else in between. Equipped with the Powermatic 80, this automatic watch has a self-winding movement with a power reserve of up to 80 hours, so it still tells the time accurately even when not worn for 3 days.

Tissot PRX 40 205 Quartz (P20,400)

If your giftee prefers nostalgic yet understated pieces, this homage to the seventies makes a great gift idea. The PRX is a throwback to the model Tissot created back in 1978 with a smooth-faced dial and a satin-finish steel bracelet that exudes a masculine and uber-retro look. “PR” means Precise and Robust, while the “X" stands for the 10 atmospheres of depth (or 100 meters), to which the watch remains water-resistant. This quartz model is battery-operated, featuring a ticking hand movement—great if you're the type who finds that look and feel satisfying.

Tissot PRX Automatic 80 (P39,900)

This handsome retro piece takes inspiration from the seventies and the disco craze. The PRX Powermatic 80 is a watch for the laid-back, the young-at-heart, the stand-outs, and the man who exudes utter coolness. This hassle-free automatic version of the PRX features a funky, chequered dial that gives the timepiece a unique edge.

Tissot Seastar 1000 Quartz Chronograph (P32,200)

The Seastar 1000 Chrono has the sporty look of a diver's watch, perfect for those who are in the market for an athletic piece. Apart from its looks, this timepiece boasts a wide range of handy functions. It has luminescent hands for easy time-telling; a waterproof design for those who are into water sports; and a reinforced casing that amps up durability.

Tissot Seastar 2000 Professional (P61,700)

With water resistance up to 2,000 feet, this automatic watch is something you can gift to professional divers and explorers of the sea. Apart from being a high-performance watch, the Seastar 2000 Professional features a stunning wave-patterned dial that injects character into the piece. It's also equipped with Tissot's Powermatic 80 technology and has anti-shock features, making it a durable timepiece that can be worn in and out of the water.
