Tis the season for holiday parties, soirees, and events galore.  Whether you’re ‘decking the halls’ via a black tie affair, a low key ugly sweater party, or the annual office party- it’s time you dress to impress.

Whatever you choose to wear, amplify your style with the perfect wrist bling. A traditional dress watch usually features a smaller dial, leather strap, and fewer complications.  We love conventional watch styles, but we aren’t afraid to break rules when it comes to styling our time piece.

Besides, what better time to show off a luxury watch than when you’re working the room with a favorite cocktail in hand, giving a toast, or shaking the hand of that VP you’ve been wanting to connect with.

We’ve rounded up our favorite watch models perfect for any holiday event:


A. Lange & Sohne

Iconic. Classic. Perfection.  The A. Lange & Sohne checks all the boxes for holiday gathering attire. It’s smaller 38.5mm case nods to the traditional dress watch, yet the intricate details and German engineering provide enough interest to make a statement.

In 2015, A. Lange & Sohne released an update on the original model featuring an ever so subtle slimmer bezel and a narrower, less pronounced logo font.


Cartier Tank

The Cartier Tank, designed by Louis Cartier in 1916, remains a legendary timepiece in the Cartier collection.  It’s ability to transition from street style to cocktail affair makes it a perfect option.

We love the unique geometric case in steel paired with the classic black leather strap seen here.


Rolex Datejust

The Datejust is by far one of our top picks for nearly any occasion.  It’s versatile enough to be considered a daily wear, but pairs just as well with a tuxedo for a black tie event.

It remains one of the most recognizable models in the Rolex family, and it’s been featured in numerous case and bracelet combinations over the decades.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

Claiming ‘elephant in the room’ status isn’t an ideal situation….unless you’re wearing it.  The Audemars Piquet Royal Oak Offshore was dubbed ‘The Elephant’ by watch collectors because of its gray and black color scheme.

The monochrome vibes on this model tone down all the complication noise, but still provide a party conversation piece.  If you’re going to color outside the lines of a traditional dress watch- The Elephant will never fail you.


Rolex President Day Date

Prestigious. Polished. Powerful.  All the feels you need for a ‘dress to impress’ holiday celebration.   When your watch bling consists of pure 18ct yellow, there’s no way you won’t leave a lasting impression.

Both the day and date features make the Day Date appropriate for daily wear, but anytime is fine by us.
