From Rolex to Vacheron Constantin: Prestigious Watch Gifts

Watchmaking has always been of great interest to jewellery lovers, so a watch as a gift is always a good idea. However, one needs to choose especially carefully so as not to “lose face”. After all, your prestige depends on your choice.

Don’t worry, the editors of iPREMIUM prepared a selection of watches: from classy to new and trendy watches to gift.

Patek Philippe

One of the brand's most popular models is Calibri-89. Featuring the most complex movement in the world, they have 36 functions and are made from 1728 parts.

In 2023, Patek Philippe will surely have the most desired watch - Calatrava 6007A Limited Edition - which features an elegant greyish blue dial with carbon checkers, white gold hands, numerals coated with premium Super-LumiNova and, of course, one of the finest calibres in the world, the 324 SC. The back cover is also transparent, with the brand cross of Calatrava recognizable all around the world.


One of Rolex's brightest legends: the world's best-selling Submariner. Its advantages include water resistance up to 300 m, crown with triple protection, unidirectional bezel with per-minute serifs, luminescent hands and markers, as well as the premium Paraflex anti-shock system, the blue Parachrom hairspring protected from the magnetic field and the indestructible in-house self-winding calibre.

But it seems that soon enough their place in our hearts will go to a new model - Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. Endowed with an Oyster case, white gold and Cerachrom ceramics, and high-definition Chromalight indication, they pack inside a new generation movement, automatic caliber 3235 with a 70-hour power reserve and an accuracy of ±2 sec. per day.


The iconic Hublot model, which will never go out of fashion and be one of the most sought after in the brand's collection - is Big Bang Unico 45 mm, made of titanium and ceramics. Since its release, the Big Bang has received a number of complications: a tourbillon, a power reserve indicator, a large date display and a fraction of a second.

But now, this model can fade into the background as Hublot introduced a new product in the Big Bang line - Big Bang Integrated White Ceramic. Inside the 42mm case is the Unico calibre 2 with double clutch, column wheel and 72-hour power reserve. Outside - high-tech and scratch-resistant ceramic based on zirconium.


Although Chopard is a manufacturer of fine jewellery watches for men and women, the women's Happy Diamonds Icons Watch is still considered the most striking brand offering. They combine the iconic dancing diamonds with an unrivalled feminine design, crafted in ethical white or rose gold, set on a leather strap.

And not so long ago, the brand introduced two new watch models created in honour of the Year of the Water Rabbit: Happy Sport Year of the Rabbit and L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rabbit. Happy Sport Year of the Rabbit made of steel and pink "ethical" gold. On the mother-of-pearl dial of a watch made in just 88 copies, a winking rabbit is surrounded by dancing diamonds. L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rabbit, the dial is embellished with mother-of-pearl inlay and urushi lacquer trim with grains of gold, made according to a traditional technique, as decor screams of well-being and prosperity.


Among the most famous Cartier models is Tank, first released in 1917. Extremely elegant and quite conservative design can be attributed to the canons of the classics. But the model has earned popularity for the special fastening of the strap, which is hidden under flat vertical elements with sharp edges.

However, in 2023, it seems that most of the attention will be devoted to a new model - Pasha de Cartier Grille with the legendary removable grill over the dial, which refers us to the watches of 1943. At that time, grill had not a decorative, but quite an applied protective function. The Pasha de Cartier Grille Trio is available in 41mm all-gold, 30mm and 35mm jewellery versions with diamonds on the bezel and grille.

TAG Heuer

The undisputed leader of the TAG Heuer brand is the 44mm Carrera chronograph, which is the epitome of the brand's racing heritage. The brand's features include: a steel case with a brushed and polished finish, an in-house Heuer 02 movement with automatic winding, and a custom-coloured dial with seconds indicator.

By the way, not so long ago the Swiss brand TAG Heuer introduced a new sports watch Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT in a stylish colour palette and a durable steel case. The watch features a three-dimensional dial with luminescent hands and markers and a two-tone ceramic bezel with a 24-hour GMT scale applied to it.

Ulysse Nardin

One of the brightest models of this brand is 263-90-7M/72. The first thing that attracts attention is the dial, made under the sea waves, which immediately sets you up for accuracy, reliability and high water resistance - 200m. The diving sample is made of titanium, equipped with a sapphire crystal and has a transparent case back, so that the owner can always observe the operation of the ultra-precise mechanism.

But the new brand’s high-tech model Blast Tourbillon deserves your full attention. The designers of Ulysse Nardin made the wrist watch in aviation style, making the belt fasteners of a special geometric shape, reminiscent of the sharp wings of an invisible plane. It features bright red blotches on the dial: bezel, details, inscriptions and the X symbol. The Blast collection includes four models, each of which is equipped with a new in-house movement UN-172, a self-winding tourbillon and a special folding clasp.

Franck Muller

Casablanca is the most recognizable collection of the brand, which captivated connoisseurs of watchmaking art with its sensual shape and curves for years. With a white gold case and sapphire crystal, their Automatic (8880 C DT) is one of the most popular models since its release.

In 2023, we bet on the brand's novelty - the Cintrée Curvex Grand Central Tourbillon - which is made of sapphire crystal and considered the first watch with a central tourbillon set in a barrel-shaped case. The Grand Central Tourbillon is equipped with an automatic calibre MVT FM CX 40T-CTR. Besides, the dial of the model is decorated with a guilloche pattern and covered with twenty layers of varnish to enhance the shine.

Vacheron Constantin

One of the most striking models of the brand - Metiers d'Art - skeleton, is distinguished by a dial with Turkish ornaments, pearls and diamonds. Complementing the sophisticated look is a crocodile leather strap.

However, the new watchmaking chapter of the brand lies in the novelties from the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle collection - Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon Phoenix and Dragon. Its dial features the classic plot from Chinese myth: the dance of the dragon and the phoenix around the pearl. The watch received a rose gold case 41 x 11.21 mm and is powered by an in-house movement with a peripheral rotor and an 80-hour power reserve. The thickness of the calibre, assembled from 188 parts, is just 5.65 mm.
