Stocking stuffers: The best, most stylish fashion watches to buy your friends this Christmas
This Christmas, give your friends the gift of time; just, like, not your own (who's that free? Just keep tabs on each other through Insta-stories). What we mean is, fashion watches make great gifts, occupying as they do the middle ground between utility and style... Because there's nothing worse than a gift that's basically useless, or one that is devoid of any character, we've rounded up a list of Christmas gift-contenders for your posse.
For your pop culture nerds...
There's plenty on offer this year-end. Swatch's Mickey Mouse-themed tie-up with Damien Hirst will tickle the Disney lover (and probably annoy the art purist); OTT pieces from the brand's Glam collection, whose campaign starred Sasha Velour, will give drag fans their dose of wearable, everyday fabulosity; while the limited-edition Shinebright Christmas watch will go down well with that one weird friend who's as obsessed with Christmas as Mariah Carey.
For your (scarily intense) fitness fanatics...
Casio has an answer for every sporty sub-species, from the yoga maniac who wears absolutely everything pink, to the aquatic all-rounder and the P90X devotee who, frankly, could use a chill pill.
For your tai-tais in training, male or female...
We recommend the gift-boxes from Amsterdam-based Cluse, known for their simple and elegant styles. Featuring interchangeable straps, your preppy pals can switch between casual leather and dressier metallic mesh, depending on the occasion.
Cluse is available in Singapore at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
