The excitement that comes with finding a small, beautifully wrapped box under the Christmas tree cannot be beaten, and while choosing what goes inside can be overwhelming, you can never go wrong with the luxury basics.

Every woman needs their jewellery essentials and gentlemen, that doesn’t just mean diamond studs. A high-quality, elegantly designed automatic watch can take you from work to play and is an investment that will pay dividends over the years. The beauty of fine watches and jewellery is that they carry so much emotion for the wearer: memories of the person who gifted it, of the special occasions they’ve worn it. Be brave in your choices and play your role in your loved one’s next memory maker.

If you’re in need of inspiration for that perfect timepiece, explore the wishlist of Rachel Garrahan, for the perfect gift at this perfect time.


It is equally at home dressed down with jeans or dressed up for a night out on the townRachel Garrahan, Jewellery and Watch Director of British Vogue

Who can resist the sporty luxe of Chanel’s J12? The Electro’s rainbow dial is the perfect antidote to the trials and tribulations of 2021. And with its chic styling and black ceramic bracelet, it is equally at home dressed down with jeans or dressed up for a night out on the town. And water resistant to 200m,you can even wear it on your next dive.


It’s hard to beat the classic clean lines of the Carrera Three Hands

This latest model has a new, improved case and bracelet, and the elegant black azurage dial is easy to read with the added convenience of a day date display. Its understated look means that even though it’s sizable at 41mm, it’s a watch my husband and I will be fighting over.


The subtle splash of diamonds on the Breitling Navitimer is just perfect for me

I’m not crazy about blinged-out diamond watches and the subtle splash of diamonds on the Breitling Navitimer is just perfect for me. Together with its elegant and versatile gold and steel bracelet, I also love the mother of pearl dial and jewellery-style beading on the bezel.
