WITH THE HOLIDAYS FAST APPROACHING, WE CHECK OUT SOME TIMEPIECES THAT MAKE THE PERFECT ACCOMPANIMENT FOR THAT YEAR-END BREAK

It’s a new year and time for the first wave of holidays. But before you begin packing your bags and picking out your wardrobe you’ll also need to keep an eye out for the timepieces that will accompany you on your travels.

A good watch not only makes an important accessory for any holiday but it is also an important to keep track of the time you’ll be having fun. Here are several options for a perfect holiday watch, all of which come with the respective features you’d expect for that idyllic vacation setting.

Best For Island Breaks

TAG Heuer Aquaracer

When the situation calls for sun, sea and surf, it’s probably a good idea to pack on an Aquaracer. Billed as the ultimate sports watch, this aquatic inspired timepiece by TAG Heuer is stylish, robust and extremely comfortable to wear. The stainless steel version of the model is unflinchingly sporty and elegant, making it the ideal accessory for active types. With a 35mm case and quartz movement plus a 300m water resistant rating, you’re assured of style and functionality whenever you decided to dive into the deep blue with this exceptional timekeeper by your side.

City Stopovers

IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic Spitfire

Walkabouts in the city require an everyday watch, one that is both comfortable to wear and stylish to pair with any style – be it formal or casual. This particular IWC piece pays homage to the legendary Spitfire aircraft, which serviced the Royal Air Force extensively in World War II. The cool factor aside though, what appeals most about this watch is its wearable 39mm stainless steel case, which contrasts its black dial beautifully. Fitted with a green textile band, the Pilot’s Watch Automatic Spitfire also fits snuggly on any wrist. Plus with a soft-iron inner case, protecting the movement from magnetic fields, you’re assured optimum time keeping no matter which city you’re travelling to.

Cross Continental Romp

Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time

If you’re a global jet setter who is always rushing from one airport to the next, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time will seem like an ideal fit. Reinvented in 2016 to convey the spirit of travel, the timepiece features a 43.5mm stainless steel case with an integrated bracelet/strap perfect to mix and match styles. The blue dial is of significant importance, as it features a total of 37 different time zones along with a detailed world map, which stands as the centrepiece of the watch. Powered by a 2460 WT/1 movement, the Overseas World Time is also equipped with a 40 hour power reserve for added convenience.

Winter Vacation

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Extra Special- 40mm

In the cold confines of winter, eligibility is a primary consideration when it comes to trekking in the snow. The Zenith Type 20 Chronograph fits that purpose rather stylishly with a 40mm bronze case that will develop its own patina and deep blue dial. Inspired by the legendary Zenith aviation watches, the timepiece offers maximum readability thanks to its large Arabic numerals and sword hands made out of SuperLuminova. Paired with a sturdy and rugged matching leather strap, it will also fit in brilliantly with any winter outfit when you’re out hitting the slopes.

Road Tripping

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracan Performante

The feel of the open road, the shifting of gears and the sound of an engine providing the perfect soundtrack…now if this sounds like an ideal vacation, then there is no denying you’re a petrol head at heart. So for maximum drive style, you may need to opt for a piece like the Excalibur Huracan Performante from Roger Dubuis. Created in partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the timepiece is assured of its sporting pedigree. It’s also quite a stunner too with a bold 45mm case and a skeleton dial inspired by the engine of the Lamborghini Huracan Supercar. It also comes paired with an Alcantara strap with a rubber inlay featuring the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyre-pattern design.

Adventurous Escape

Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert

Regardless if you’re scaling mountains, hiking in the jungle or sailing the high seas, the Tissot T-Touch Solar Expert will be more than able to keep up with the adventure ahead. Featuring a robust 45mm titanium case, the timepiece features a touchscreen face and runs smoothly on solar power. Despite its rugged and well-built construction, the timepiece is also pretty fashionable in form. Blending timeless style and sporty aesthetics, the T-Touch Solar Expert is equipped with features such as compass, altimeter, perpetual calendar and chronograph as well as a range of straps, which makes it the ideal partner for any outdoor journey.
