A luxury watch is one of those rare accessories that is both fashionable and functional and that appeals to both men and women. This is why many couples are now choosing to uniquely express their relationship by wearing co-ordinating timepieces in lieu or in addition to more traditional forms of expression like engagement and wedding rings.
‘His and Hers’ watch combinations come in a whole host of styles, colours and sizes depending on the personalities of each individual. For some, classic timeless quality may be the mark of their relationship. For the more active outdoorsy couple, they might opt for a sports watch duo. Or for those who love fashion but look for clever design and innovation features, they might opt for a classic vintage design with a modern twist.
Whatever your style, think first about the type of watch set that will suit your lifestyle. Still confused about where to start? Here we guide you on our top 4 ‘His and Hers’ timepiece combinations that will offer very different looks but will stand the test of time.
When looking for the perfect his-and-hers watch set, it is important to work with a unisex design that also accentuates both the individual styles despite the couple’s gender. We asked watch experts J Farren-Price Sydney for their top four tried-and-true contemporary watch sets that appeal to couples looking for versatility while portraying their unique love story and connection.
Rolex – Two-Tone Datejust
For more than 50 years, the Rolex Datejust has been the go-to classic luxury watch for sophisticated couples. This two-tone set combines the timeless elegance of a dress watch with a hint of refined sportiness. This set is really the perfect all-rounder for the stylish loved-up couple – this perfect pair pictured features the 41mm Datejust for him and the 31mm Lady Datejust for her with hours, minutes, seconds and date functions.
Vacheron Overseas Steel with blue dial (men’s)
Vacheron Overseas Small Model – (lady’s)
For the elite couple with little or no budget constraints and a keen eye for timeless style, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection is a match made in heaven. Featuring the Overseas 41MM with a blue dial for the gent and the Overseas Small 37MM with diamond bezel and pale pink dial for the lady, this set is both sleek and sophisticated. The men’s watch dial features a striking and unique blue hue, reminiscent of deep ocean water, complimenting the cool tone of the steel.
The small model gets a subtle touch of sparkle with eighty-four diamonds totalling 1.0cts in weight in the bezel. This is an automatic self-winding model with a small dial at the 9 ‘clock hour marker and a 44-hour power reserve. While Vacheron Constantin Overseas timepieces are a significant investment, you can rest assured that you get what you pay for in terms of quality, craftsmanship and couture style. The Vacheron Overseas collection also boasts the esteemed seal of Geneva.
Tudor – Heritage Black Bay 41MM Burgundy and Black
Black Bay 41 Burgundy (lady’s)
Black Bay 41 Black (men’s)
For the younger, heritage-inspired and fashion-forward couple who are more budget conscious the Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 is a smart, sporty yet refined couples watch set. This is a truly unisex watch and both colours can be worn by either gender. However, Tudor’s latest ‘Born to Dare’ features the feminine powerhouse Lady Gaga wearing the burgundy model with matching burgundy fabric strap. While football hero David Beckham is featured wearing the black version on a steel bracelet. The beauty of the Tudor Heritage collection is that each model comes with the option of steel, leather and fabric strap options.
The inspiration behind this collection is built on sixty years of TUDOR diving history distilled into one truly iconic watch. The Heritage Black Bay has been newly updated with a mechanical movement manufactured by Tudor.
Jaeger Le-Coultre – Reverso Duoface and Duetto
Reverso Classic Large Duoface (men’s)
Reverso Classic Small Duetto (lady’s)
Distinctly nostalgic with an old-world feel and oozing sophistication, the Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso Duetto for her and Duoface for him watch set is on the high side of moderate. The pink gold case, crown and bracelet is offset by a classic square shape that closely resembles a Cartier Tank timepiece. Like the classic Cartier watch, the Reverso Duetto watch is manual winding with hour and minute functions. The larger Duoface now also comes in automatic featuring hours, minutes and a second-time zone.
The beauty of these Reverso models is that they cleverly accommodate your whims and outfit changes by simply turning over the case to show a different dial offering more versatility than a traditional watch. Traditionally available as a manual wind watch for couples who enjoy feeling the mechanisms at work inside their timepiece. The Duetto and Duoface are now also available as an automatic watch – ideal for stylish couples with a low-maintenance lifestyle.
Sophisticated timepieces like these featured make a strong fashion statement and speak measures to a couple’s strength and confidence. From our experience couples looks to invest in a his-and-hers set that will go the distance and see them through all of life’s important events and monumental occasions with style, grace and unity.
