There are few men’s accessories that have quite the same effect as a new and expensive wrist-watch – not just on the way you feel in yourself, but on the way others see you, too. A carefully chosen luxury timepiece commands the utmost respect from all who encounter you, and is guaranteed to have you feeling like a million dollars, to boot. The combination of expert craftsmanship with the highest quality materials, all coming together to make for an exquisitely designed watch, is something you can barely put a price on – but of course, some of the finest brands in the business do, and it is well worth the investment.
One such brand is Tommy Hilfiger – a famous designer clothing name that is renowned for its sporty yet luxurious timepieces. Trendy and modern, its designs should be at the top of any sartorial gentleman’s wish list, but with so many to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start.
Available direct from the designer as well as from quality online stores like Tic Watches, each watch comes with a two-year warranty. Let’s take a look at some of the best designs on the block to help you make the right choice.
The sophisticated ‘Luke’ model features a gold-toned stainless-steel bracelet which contrasts beautifully with its white dial, bordered in the classic Tommy Hilfiger navy blue. A timepiece that exudes luxury even from a distance, the ‘Luke’ features a quality quartz movement and is water-resistant up to 50 metres – although it isn’t recommended for long activities such as diving.
Modern casual meets sport with the trendy ‘Gavin’ design. Featuring a two-tone 45mm stainless steel case and with a sleek bezel, the Tommy Hilfiger logo sits at 12 o’clock. With a textured multi-eye grey dial and a fine line minute track, it’s available with a variety of different straps. We like the stainless-steel chain-link bracelet or silver mesh. Suitable for recreational swimming up to 50m, it’s the ultimate choice for bold men who want to make a statement – and promises to get you noticed for all the right reasons,
Tommy Hilfiger’s Chase model is a classic-looking timepiece that exudes glamour and sophistication, crafted with a stainless-steel case, contrasting navy blue face against a soft, brown leather strap. Featuring three sub-dials and the signature Tommy Hilfiger logo at 3 o’clock, it’s a smart watch that would look as perfect with a sharp suit as it would a more casual shirt with rolled up sleeves. This is a watch that will see you through every eventuality, and is one of the brand’s most popular models to date.
The sleek and sophisticated Cooper comes in two different colourways – choose from classic gold, with a contrasting navy blue face, or timeless silver, with a white face. Both are numbered in Roman numerals. The former features a quartz movement, with a gold-plated bracelet and expertly crafted 40mm case, exuding classic American style with a contemporary edge. Both are high quality timepieces that will last a lifetime, and are well worth making the investment.
The Brooklyn is a watch that exudes elegance from the word go. Combining a stylish and modern rose gold bracelet with and a shiny and ultra-modern black face, it is the epitome of luxury – perfect for those looking to put the finishing touches on a suave and minimalistic look. Featuring a gold-plated tempered steel ornament tie and powered by a robust quartz movement, it’s the ultimate accessory to add to your collection, and is guaranteed to stand the test of time.
The Gigi Hadid
And finally, one for the women.
The Gigi Hadid model is a casual and sporty timepiece featuring a quartz movement with a midnight blue, stainless steel case and a matching blue steel bracelet. Its blue dial with gold tone hands and hour markers adds a welcome dose of sophistication to an otherwise pared down watch.
Co-designed by Gigi Hadid as part of a wider collection for Tommy Hilfiger, this model is already proving popular, and is perfect for sporty and active women who are always on the go. Whichever model you choose, one thing is for sure – your Tommy Hilfiger timepiece is guaranteed to make the right impression. And, with the style and quality to remain in your collection for years to come without ever looking dated, what more of a reason do you need to treat yourself?
