Ever wondered what to gift to your fellow watch nerds? Maybe your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife or one of your friends is a watch enthusiast. So what do you gift them besides watches of course ;).
In my quest to find the ultimate gifts that I would appreciate. I have identified 3 things that are in my opinion absolutely necessary for a watch geek.
- Watch storage / winders
You always need a safe and secure gadget for your watches. In this case I rely on Wolf. They have great quality and have been in the business since 1834. Big plus there are a lot of different options to choose from and the styles are very appealing.

- Watch books
There are many books about watches. It really depends which brand you would like to learn about or what type of watches. Hodinkee has a very extensive collection on books about watches.
They just recently released a guide on watches. A good read for beginners to horological experts. Check it out HERE
One of the more popular books about watches is a piece called: “A man and his watch”. A book about the stories behind watches. Check it out HERE
- Watch straps
When it comes to straps there are a lot of brands out there. I look fo quality and design, but mainly quality that is why I always get my bracelets from HIRSCH. They are probably the most well known brand for watch straps and they produce for many of the brands too.

HIRSCH has just recently introduced their new assortment that will be in stores beginning of next year with a quick exchange mechanism to change your watch style on a daily basis.
Have a wonderful time with your families, enjoy the holidays and a happy new year!
