Are you among those holiday-season-stressed who are still looking for a useful gift? What about a wristwatch, one you can afford? Here you get twice your money’s worth …
Before spending your money for anything useless you should consider buying a wristwatch – by the way suitable also for the youngsters among us. I plead that they should wear a wristwatch! The latter will be a longterm companion, something that will last almost for ever …
Spontaneously these five Swiss made timepieces came into my mind. I assure you they look good and the quality is top.
Let me show you them:
Baume & Mercier Clifton Big Date & Power Reserve:
Two nice little and useful mechanical complications built into a 43 mm steel case and sold for 3500 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Longines The Longines Pulsometer Chronograph:
Go for the vintage look! The 40 mm steel case houses an automatic chronograph caliber with column wheel. The chronograph is operated with only one pusher built into the crown. This is why such a chronograph is called mono-pusher. The timepiece is sold for 3500 Euro including 19 % VAT.

Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time:
For travellers a very useful watch indicating a second zone-time and the home-time. If you synchronize home-time before leaving home with the blue hour hand indicating the second zone-time, you can, when travelling and changing a timezone, easily adjust the watch. You simply need to pull out the crown and adjust the silver hour hand in one one-hour steps forward or backward. The Montblanc will then show you local time and home-time (including a day-/night-indication). The 41 mm steel watch is sold for 4290 Euro including 19 % VAT.
