This Valentine’s Day, shower your better half with gifts that are oh so fine.
Love is a many-splendored thing. A relationship takes time to foster and a lasting relationship is one that has endured the test of time. It takes plenty of unconditional giving, mutual encouragement, open communication, empathy, and it is about having the best interest of your loved one at heart. There will be times, just like life itself, that doubts creep in or unforeseen circumstances arise to impair this special bond, but you will always emerge stronger together.
Be it happiness or anguish, you cherish every moment you spend together knowing that you have found the right person and that the person whom you love dearly ultimately helps you blossom into a rounded individual. While time can absolutely make or break a relationship, it also bears witness to your relationship. For those who are still holding firm after weathering the tides, know that time has indeed strengthened your affection for each other.
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of romance between two people. For the fruitful journey you have walked through hand in hand, what better ways to show for it than a couple of matching timepieces?
Available in a bevy of 42mm chronographs for him and 36mm in automatic or 32mm in SuperQuartz for her, Breitling taps into its archives for a vintage-inspired contemporary sports watch collection to entice the gregarious couple.

Cartier Tank Solo
You can never go wrong with any of Cartier’s couple offerings. The maison has established itself as the go-to brand with many revealing the first watches they bestowed upon their better halves were the Tank. Owing to an abiding design language and a storied history, the Tank has ascended to become possibly the most popular choice for couple watches. Offered in small, large and extra-large, the Tank Solo is among the maison’s most attainable too.
Corum Golden Bridge
The provenance of the Golden Bridge lies in the creator’s vision to unearth the inner beauty of the watch’s movement. 40 years since the Golden Bridge debuted, Corum continues to build upon the very foundation laid by Vincent Calabrese by reinvigorating the famous baguette movement with beautiful engraving and the case with precious gem-setting. For the aesthetes who are seduced by artistry, you will be pleased to know that the watch christened after the iconic Golden Gate Bridge is a watchmaking icon in its own right.
Audaciously and fluidly designed, the two inseparable yet remarkable sides of the Reverso form a perfect whole to mirror the couple whose collective strengths more than compensate for each other’s weaknesses. Arguably the best feature of this sumptuous watch is the inverse surface of the dial, which can be customised or inscribed with initials, poems or even illustrations. With personalisation, Jaeger-LeCoultre is opening up a range of possibilities.
Omega De Ville Trésor
Since the collection was first released in 1949, the slim, elegant profile of the De Ville Trésor has not lost its lustre and is still luring collectors seeking exquisite dress watches to the house of Omega. You will be spoiled for choice with the brand constructing the collection from countless materials. One aspect remains unchanged, however, is Omega’s unwavered stance on quality.
Revered for pioneering the El Primero chronograph, Zenith doesn’t make too many ladies’ timepieces. But when it does, you are assured of top-notch pieces. The Elite is an exceptional watch, and it comes in 40.5mm and 36mm for him and her respectively that appear almost identical. While the Elite is rendered in the classic time and date expression, it is also offered in the most romantic complication, the moonphase.
