If you’re like me, you’re a big procrastinator when it comes to getting gifts for your mates or parents birthdays, Mother’s or Father’s Day. Part of the problem is I prefer to give gifts that have a real function as opposed to something that may end up in a drawer and then re-gifted to someone else later on.

A great watch is a perfect idea and doesn’t have to cost you both arms and a leg. For about $200.00 you can find a fabulous chronograph that has all the bells and whistles, with eye-catching details and looks 100x more expensive than it is.

Three companies come to mind that deliver a beautifully designed watch at that hard to resist price. Tsovet, Miansai and Armogan are all worth consideration.

Still, if it’s an investment timepiece you’re after, I’m really crazy for a bronze watch from Tudor. It’s so handsome in a stealthy sort of way.

Tudor Heritage Black Bay bronze watch

Brushed bronze and a brown face make this an elegant option to the requisite gold or platinum case. At about $3500., this is an excellent investment that ages beautifully. The patina and pedigree make this Tudor timepiece a treasure forever.
