(BPT) – There’s nothing like the holidays – a time when everyone thinks more deeply about the people they love and how to show they care. For anyone choosing gifts for those they care most about, the best approach is to consider a timeless gift that will be enjoyed for years to come. It’s important to choose a quality gift that says just as much about the value of your relationship, as it does about the personality of the gift recipient. You can find the perfect accessory for everyone on your list by turning to one of America’s oldest and most trusted brands that has been thoughtfully gifted for generations: Timex.
Watches are considered a prized possession by many who own them, and according to Statista, revenue from watches will surpass $11 million in the U.S. in 2021. In fact, the market for watches is expected to grow about 3% annually between 2021 and 2026, reflecting the enduring and timeless appeal of this iconic accessory.
While Timex watches are striking fashion statements, their most refined, delicate and polished wristwatches are also the ultimate practical gift, as they’re built to handle everyday wear and tear and address everyone’s time-telling and fashion needs. You can find multiple watches at a wide range of price points and styles to find the best piece for everyone on your list.
Here’s how you can find the perfect gifts for the special people in your life.
For those who love the classics: First released in 1979, the original diver-inspired Q Times gave a new generation a modern Timex watch with quartz technology. The Q Timex Reissue has recreated every detail – including the true-to-the-era woven stainless-steel bracelet, functional battery hatch, rotating top ring and luminescent paint. Ticking inside is a modern quartz movement.
For fashionistas: The Waterbury Legacy Boyfriend 36mm Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch expands on the fan favorite collection with a gold-tone, stainless-steel case and bracelet with white acrylic inlay, white dial and elegantly fluted bezel, proving you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function.
For the adventurous: Featuring a solar-powered movement that lasts up to four months and eliminates the need for battery changes, the Expedition North Field Post Solar 41mm Eco-Friendly Leather Strap Watch is a military-inspired outdoor watch made to accompany adventurers anywhere. It boasts an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and 100-meter water resistance rating. Thanks to the luminescent hands and dial markings, the sun works overtime to make this watch legible in the dark. With its comfortable brown leather strap made with eco-friendly materials and crafted to last, this watch can stay on your wrist all the way to the top.
For the minimalist: The Marlin Automatic 40mm Leather Strap Watch offers an aesthetic refresh on the iconic 1960s Marlin case. Ticking inside is a tried-and-true 21 jewel automatic movement, creating a contemporary timepiece that honors the Timex watchmaking history. Powered by your motion as you wear the watch, the movement can store a maximum 40 hours of energy. If motionless longer than 40 hours, wind the watch using the crown until you feel resistance, set it and place back on your wrist – where every motion will provide energy for the movement. True to the original Marlin design, the stainless-steel case and silver-tone dial are complemented by a classic brown leather strap, featuring leather from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company.
For the fan of all things retro: With digital analog watches coming back in a big way, the ’80s-inspired Timex T80, which comes in a variety of colors and packs a date display, stopwatch and alarm, ensures that its wearer looks great – no matter where they’re going.
Celebrate the season by making this year’s gifts to your loved ones truly memorable. Make sure to personalize the timepiece you choose by having it engraved with a meaningful date or initials. Then you can let your love for your friends and family shine through your carefully chosen, high-quality gift that reveals just how important that relationship is to you. While you’re shopping don’t forget about gifting for birthdays, weddings, graduations and all those special moments that deserve to be celebrated in style.
‘We love to read the stories sent to us from consumers around the world, about how our watches have stood the test of time, and how they have been given for generations – celebrating life’s biggest moments,’ said Shari Fabiani, senior vice president, Brand Marketing and Creative for Timex Group.
