Whether you’re shopping for her, for him, for both, or even for yourself, a timepiece is one of those time-tested (no pun intended) gift items that can turn an otherwise overly commercialized holiday into something truly special.

So, while the usual flowers, chocolates, and spa visits will rarely lead you astray, these accessible luxuries from Citizen will surprise and delight anyone lucky enough to be gifted with one.

All That Glitters

For Her: From Citizen’s Corso collection, this Eco-Drive Peyten model has a slightly more prominent 41mm case size than your “typical” ladies’ watch. However, its elegance comes from this timepiece’s classic gold-tone stainless construction and the eight diamond accents along its non-cardinal indices.

Moreover, its shimmering dial with a sunray finish will have people doing a double take. But don’t let the dial’s exquisitely deep blue color fool you: Light can still pass through it and into the no-battery-required E111 movement quite easily.

For Him: This more-stripped down Peyten three-hander makes a classic, stylish statement.

Sporting a deceptively elegant 41mm gold-tone stainless steel case like its diamond-indexed sibling from above, this watch’s cutting-edge E111 Eco-Drive movement draws uninterrupted power from any light source (yes, even fluorescent lighting), eliminating the need to replace batteries, ever.

Plus, with 100 meters of water resistance and a rich, deep blue, dual-textured dial featuring a date aperture at 3 o’clock, this Citizen stalwart makes for an excellent gift.

The Color of Love

For Her: Bi-color flash meets “La Vie en Rose” elegance in this Sport Luxury watch for women. Both gold-tone and polished stainless steel frame a gorgeous 33mm case sporting a sophisticated radiant pink dial adorned with gold-tone framed hands and index markers (including eight diamond-enhanced indices).

However, despite rocking eight diamond-enhanced indices, “sport” is still part of this timepiece’s moniker, so expect 100 meters of water resistance as well as Citizen’s proprietary E013 Eco-Drive movement, which, once fully charged, could run for months in total darkness without needing a battery replacement.

For Him: As a colorful complement to the ladies’ Sport Luxury watch discussed above, this exquisite example from Citizen’s fan-favorite “Tsuyosa” Automatics Collection blends in a bevy of design details with an eye-catching gradient teal dial to redefine the modern sports watch.

Unexpectedly rakish notes, like a crown swept down to the 4 o’clock position, a “cyclops” lens over the date window at 3 o’clock, an integrated silver-tone stainless steel bracelet, versatile 40mm case size, and more, bring this Calibre 8210 automatic movement-powered into new stylish territory.
