As the year comes to an end, the holidays (quite literally) light up these dark times. The perfect time to spend with friends and family, and what better to complement that ugly Christmas sweater than with a beautiful watch? Here are four serious timepieces as not-so-serious suggestions for the Holidays.
Doxa SUB 300T Whitepearl
Based on the famous 1968 Doxa SUB 300T Conquistador, the SUB 300T Whitepearl comes with an ice-cold appearance. White and black are all Doxa used to create an extremely legible dial that gives you the chills like winter in the Midwest. When not diving, it is perfect for shoveling snow with, thanks to the comfortable seven-link bracelet. Don’t drop it, as you might spend Christmas looking for it. Fortunately, when you finally find it, it will still be in perfect condition as it is fitted with a sapphire crystal and water/snow resistant up to 120 bar.

HYT Moon Runner Red Magna
Red is not only the color of Santa’s clothing and Rudolph’s nose, but also a prominent feature on the HYT Moon Runner Red Magma. This sophisticated timepiece helps you keep track of the Holidays by displaying the day, month, and phases of the moon. With most watches, this would be the main feature, but HYT tops it off with its signature system showing the correct hour through a fluid-filled tube. Normally this is red, but rumor has it that on special request, it can also be filled with eggnog or that nice Bordeaux that you have been saving for Christmas dinner.

Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT 40
Allergic to a Christmas tree? Not to worry, Breitling is now offering a spruce green in the Chronomat Automatic GMT 40. They even add a dash of red in it for decoration to keep that holiday spirit going. The great news is that when you are stuck in a snowstorm, forced to celebrate Christmas in the airport, you still know when it is the appropriate time to Skype your family in sunny California, telling them you can’t make it and wishing them happy holidays, thanks to the GMT function. You are also certified precise with this, as the Chronomat Automatic GMT 40 is a Chronometer, like all Breitlings these days.

Piaget Polo Skeleton High Jewelry
If you have been really, really good this year, Santa might let it snow diamonds and give you this Piaget Polo Skeleton High Jewelry. The elves of Piaget’s secret lair in La Côte-aux-Fées, high in the Swiss mountains, needed a whopping total of 1.722 diamonds to set the case, bezel, bracelet, and even the skeletonized movement. This last feature will also give you much credit among your fellow watch-collecting friends and turn them into a season-appropriate green hue of envy. It is one of those watches that simply dazzle you in every way possible, and like Christmas, it is way too much of a good thing, but isn’t that also what the season is about?
