3 Holiday Fashion and Watch Pairings From Tudor to Give This Season
Proof that classic timepieces and fashion-forward staples go hand in hand.
At one point or another most of us have all struggled with the task of finding a fashion-minded holiday gift that will please everyone amongst your family, friends and loved ones. This holiday season, level up your gift game by taking a more thoughtful approach and seeking out quality style-driven gifts that will withstand the test of time. To zero-in on the season’s most coveted gifts, we’ve curated a holiday gift guide in collaboration with Tudor that caters to a variety of personalities on your holiday shopping list.
Founded in 1926 and established by Hans Wilsdorf, the Swiss watch brand, which has remained as the sister company to Rolex, has forged its place in history by utilizing Rolex’s legendary durability and quality at an affordable price point. To mark the arrival of the holiday season in style, we’ve opted for a different type of gift guide that pairs Tudor’s offering of luxury timepieces with some of the season’s must-have sneaker silhouettes and style-forward fashion items.
Below, find three unique watch and fashion pairings to put your best foot forward when it comes to gift giving this season.
The Tudor Royal was born to dare and is inspired by the vision of the brand’s founder Hans Wilsdorf. Fashioned in Switzerland from a single block of 316L steel — which is one of the most robust stainless steels in existence — the case on the Tudor Royal models is waterproof thanks to its screw-down crown and case-back. Defined by a mother-of-pearl dial with a diamond-set vision, the elegant timepiece pairs equally well with a striking piece of jewelry such as Justine Clenquet’s Silver Kirsten Necklace that’s bedecked in crystal-cut accents and features a silver chain link design.
Ushering in a newly reimagined iteration of Tudor’s Black Bay timepiece line, the iconic watch series has returned in steel and yellow gold with a fixed bezel. Each fitted with Manufacture Calibres, the models come in four sizes along with a five-link bracelet and clasp with rapid adjustment. Asserting the watch’s sophisticated, style-forward design, the iconic silhouette is ideal for the sartorial chameleon on your holiday shopping list who favors items with a dose of soft, seductive appeal. For the ultimate match made in heaven, match the timepiece with a sleek handbag such as Prada’s Cleo Brushed Leather Shoulder Bag.
Best known for its versatility and affordability, the quality-driven timepiece features an integrated bracelet, notched bezel and automatic movement, making the heritage sport-watch a must-have staple for those who favor chic, elegant and timeless gifts. Arriving in a sapphire blue bezel, the Tudor Royal Blue Dial 34mm acts as the perfect counterpart to the New Balance 580 which arrives in an indigo colorway that mirrors the same dazzling sapphire hue that appears in Tudor’s classic, chic timepiece.
