There’s been a few times where I’m dashing from home to downtown feeling a bit empty when I realize I left my watch on the bedside table. As much as we have our smartphones where we can check for time, I like to have a simple piece on my wrist for the time-telling task. Here’s my holiday wishlist for elegant, classical light-weight watches.

Rado Watches – Coupole Collection

After learning how ceramic technology for watches can offer a lightweight without the heaviness of the traditional steel-brush weight, I’ve always had my eyes on many of the Rado watches.

Small-scale simplicity The Rado Coupole Classic Mini offers timeless style without overwhelming the wrist. For a légère look that is both polished and fashion forward, pair Rado’s light brown leather Coupole Classic Mini with layered bracelets and crisp white top. For those preferring a more metallic timepiece, the Rado Coupole Classic Mini also comes in a steel bracelet with rose gold-coloured middle links in CeramosTM, Rado’s innovative composite of ceramic and metal. A classic watch in a smaller size, its versatile look and feminine shine make it ideal for daily wear.

Nomos Glashütte – Neomatik Collection

My favourite watch that I tried on during the NG launch at Roldorf+Co was from the Neomatik Collection.

These watches are revolutionarily slender and outstandingly accurate; they are likewise cosmopolitan, cultivated, and contemporary. Thanks to the latest construction techniques, it is only 3.2 millimeters in height, thus being thinner than anything else that self-winds and is produced in large-scale series.

Tiffany – Tiffany East West™ Collection

Looking for a twist on how the numbers are laid on on your wrist?

Tiffany East West™ blends elegance with daring. Its audacious design literally turns the rules of watchmaking on their side. The collection is marked by a crisp shape inspired by an ingenious Tiffany travel clock from the 1940s.
