Gift watch – what should a watch have to be a proper gift?


Celebrations usually involve the purchase of gifts, it is not surprising that it is stressful for people looking for something suitable, which also will fit the situation and satisfy the recipients.

A gift watch is a very risky investment, but if we know the taste and lifestyle of a person well, we can easily try to find something interesting. However, we must follow a few basic principles.


First of all, we need to set budget possibilities, because buying a cheap watch, for a person who is more likely to like branded products, will be a bad choice and if we are not able to allocate a sufficient amount to match the standards of a loved one, it is better to let this purchase and choose something else. Mid-range watches, however, already made in a really solid way, you can buy in the price range of 400 – 800 PLN and such production will certainly be an excellent choice.


Since we already know how much we can spend on the purchase, now you should ask yourself which gift watch to choose best? We have a lot of possibilities at our disposal, starting with bracelets, going through leather, webbing and rubber belts, ending with low and high envelopes. If the jubilarian is the type of man who spends his time mainly in an official outfit, he cares about the elegant look in every situation and values the class, the best choice will be a subtle model with a leather belt. You can easily fit it into everyday clothes and suits, so it’s the most versatile one.

For teenagers and those who like sports clothes in the main, models made of synthetic materials are the best solutions. The bracelet will work for people who do not have to wear elegant outfits too often. An interesting idea that is becoming more and more popular among people bored with routine is the selection of watches made of wood. They fit into everyday shirts and sports style. They can, however, be demanding in terms of cleaning and care, so if you buy a gift to someone who simply does not have time to clean the watch daily, it’s better to choose something more classic.


Now we have a visual issue. Gift watches do not have to be always elegant and if you can afford to buy something interesting, you should choose a model with interesting colors. The size of the envelope and its height need to be adjusted to individual preferences. People with a narrow wrist and slender hands will not look very well in wide bracelets and belts, large and tall envelopes. It is better to choose something delicate. On the other hand, high-ranking men should use their dimensions, having massive productions, because they will not, in a sense, “disappear” on their hands.

The choice is huge, but we can only buy such a gift for a person we know very well, otherwise, it may be dissatisfied and simply not use the gift received.

Each watch should have a cotton cloth (ideally the same ones that are used in the case of glasses for spectacles), a short-haired brush, a container with compressed air. First, carefully wipe your wooden watch with a dry cloth and then perform the same process with a damp cloth soaked in water. This is to get rid of the remains of sweat, the dust that we left on your watch, during the whole day of use. The next step will be to clean hard-to-reach places, eg. Combination of wooden watch case with a belt of the aforementioned brush. Thanks to this, we will get rid of the dust that has accumulated in this small space. The last element is cleaning the watch with compressed air, which will quickly clean up the remains that we missed or were hard to access.

If we have a watch model, which is made of wood, which includes even a bracelet, it will be a good idea to use special preparations for cleaning wooden surfaces. These preparations will add gloss and create a special protective layer to protect the wood in the watch from moisture. An interesting remedy is also a special preparation to remove scratches, so it’s worth equipping yourself right away. These preparations form a protective coating on the wood that prevents scratches on the wood.

An interesting idea is to buy a special box that is used to store watches. It is finished on the inside with a very soft material so that our watch will not be accidentally scratched or damaged. Given its lower scratch resistance than traditional watches with a metal envelope, one fall, splash, a scratch can even destroy the mechanism, not to mention the external elements.

If you have decided on a wooden watch model that has a whole bracelet made of wood, you may find that our use is bad in relation to this material. We must first pay attention to whether we do not rub our wooden watch on the desk or table top during everyday tasks. Unfortunately, we must expect different types of impacts, as this is unavoidable, and each of them may damage the paint and wooden material. The best choice then will be contacting the manufacturer, who will advise us to use the methods of re-varnishing a wooden watch or undertake such a treatment for us.
