Swiss timepieces: now we certainly wouldn't sneer at procuring one from our stockings 'pon Christmas morn. We've been lucky enough to peruse Tissot's new weekend collection of watches and present to you, lucky readers, our highlights...
First up is the Tissot Courturier: we love the sexy red leather strap, and dare we say, the pretty masculine feel to the face. For those blessed with more scrilla to spare, the Couturier can also come with a diamond bezel.
Chronographs can often be too fussy (a bit aspirational James Bond, we think) however Tissot's Dressport is a really elegant model. With a mother of pearl dial and rose gold tone face it combines femininity with functionality.
For an understated day-to-day watch the Classic Dream is a simple, classic (duh) watch and in white looks ultra-fresh. The scratch resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case renders it virtually immortal to everyday abuse - hurrah!
The Tissot TXL is dreamily vintage-inspired. With a square face and elegant lines it kinda reminds us of a 1920's Cartier. The embossed leather straps come in a varied pallet of colours (turquoise, red, green, black, pearly white or stainless steel) so snap one up for every outfit.
Our favourite model is Tissot's Lovely: a timeless dress watch whose combination of discretion and luxury won us over. The clean dial can come in mother-of-pearl, black, silver or goldtone plus it's also available with a diamond bezel. Whilst we'd naturally team this with a killer LBD this party season (Maison Martin Margiela's leather and jersey number please, Santa) we'd also throw out the rule book and wrap it round our wrists out of party mode for a little luxurious flourish.
