There is probably nothing more difficult in gift-giving, then finding the right one for a man. That’s why we often tend to keep to the classics and stay on the safe side. Luckily, classics do not have to be boring. Here are ten modern, hip and functional watches that would make a perfect gift for him.
Stainless Steel LED Watch
This analog watch may look simple and classic at a first glimpse, but red LED lighting is a giveaway for more hidden features. One of them is that the owner of the watch can display a personalized message on the watch face of up to 26 characters. Whether you want to use it for reminders or daily inspirational quotes is entirely up to you. A stainless steel strap that comes with the watch is not only stylish, but practical – with over 20 strap segments it will fit any wrist size.
Japanese Style LED Watch “Singularity”
If you are looking for a completely original way to look at time – you have that with Singularity. Showing hours, minutes and date in separate rows and columns, the watch may take some time to figure out – but that’s part of the fun. Despite its originality in time-telling, the watch keeps to stylistic tradition with a classic leather strap and a buckle type clasp.
3D Effect LED Watch
If he’s a fan of sci-fi movies and futuristic gadgets, this new 3D perspective wrist piece will quickly become his favourite. Telling time will no longer be just a tedious everyday thing, but an exciting three-dimensional adventure. Juts press the button on the right side and see the numbers jump off the screen. As with most LED watches, you might spend some time figuring it out – but it will all be worth it in the end!
Red Crystal LED Watch “Ruby”
With shimmering red crystals and bright LED lighting, this watch is as much of a fashion accessory as it is a time-telling device. A truly eye-catching piece, it will draw lots of attention to his wrist and serve its practical purpose. As flashy of expensive-looking as the watch is, it is also durable and thanks to the waterproof rating can accompany him to a fishing trip or a quiet walk on the beach.
Japanese Style Inspired Blue LED Watch “Ice Samurai”
At a first glance “Ice Samurai” is merely a black onyx bracelet – simple and classic. But with a press of a button it instantly turns into a modernistic watch – displaying the time in icy blue glow (hence the name)– a perfect symbol of strength, dignity and ultimate “manliness”. A combination of modern design and Oriental mystery – “Ice Samurai” is a truly unique accessory.
