As high school and college graduations approach, consider gifting a luxury timepiece. A symbol of maturity, responsibility and adulthood, the perfect watch will forever serve as a reminder of this momentous time in your grad’s life.
A luxury timepiece is a forever gift. It’s something that your grad will wear daily and something he or she will hopefully wear for a very long time. Stay away from trendy pieces and opt for a classic design with durability and longevity. There are endless possibilities but here are some to get you started and point you in the right direction.
Ball Conductor Transcendant
This stainless steel Ball Conductor Transcendent will carry your grad throughout their entire adult life. The classic design makes for a truly versatile timepiece perfect for every occasion. Choose from a white or black dial, whichever speaks best to your grad’s sense of style.
Shinola The Runwell
We think Shinola’s The Runwell watch would look great on for interviews or for a day in the office. Made in America (Detroit, Michigan to be exact), it’s a watch your grad can feel proud of wearing. Consider the gift set which comes with two additional straps, making the timepiece even more functional.
TAG Heuer Monaco
The sleek look of Tag Heuer’s Monaco watch makes it the perfect gift for a young professional. Tag Heuer’s slogan, ‘don’t crack under pressure,’ serves as the perfect motto for your grad as they enter into an exciting, but oftentimes stressful, new chapter of their life.
Nixon timepieces make great gifts because of their affordability. At $150, the Sentry offers a stylish yet timeless design, perfect for someone just entering college or the workforce.
Bonus: Buy Pre-Owned
Consider shopping for a certified pre-owned watch for your grad. Pre-owned watches are usually marked down considerably from their original price and are in clean, like-new condition. Not familiar with pre-owned watches? Read our tips and tricks before you shop.
