Thanks to OMEGA and its diverse Accessories collections, life just got a little easier for anyone with watch lovers on their gift list but who don’t want to come off as too one note.

To wit: These combinations “gift bags” are designed to create complete and compelling looks for your giftees by including gift options from OMEGA's Accessories catalogs that will amp up the wrist game of the watch lovers in your life.

The “Dive, Dinner, and Beyond” Gift Bag

Gift #1
A little taste of OMEGA's stunning Sedna gold brings a lot of bi-color panache to what is arguably the brand’s most enduring and iconic Seamaster dive watch, the Seamaster Diver 300M.

Featuring a diver-legitimate helium release valve at 10:00 on the 42mm steel case and sporting a water resistance rating of 30 bar/300 meters/1,000 feet, this watch defines the idea of a dive watch as double-agent: a workhorse under the waves, but a sophisticated wrist instrument on dry land.

Gift #2
Watches and cufflinks are a classic gift combo. This is especially true when you pair the above Seamaster Diver 300M with one of the elegant sleeve-holders found in among OMEGA’s cufflinks catalog; these steel and engraved ceramic OMEGA Aqua cufflinks are a particular favorite of ours because they perfectly pick up the wavy dial treatment of the watch.

For, your giftee will sport some fashionable, outfit-completing élan without becoming overly matchy-matchy. Now that’s style.

The “Sophistication Made Easy” Gift Bag

Gift #1
The sophisticated light “cappuccino” colorway, a subtle use of Sedna gold and steel, and a sprinkling of pavé diamonds along the double bezel mark this Speedmaster 38 (meaning 38mm) as a perfect “tool” chronograph with glamorous appeal.

This classy looking Speedmaster will make the day for any person on your list who demands robust technical capability out of their scene-making style.

Gift #2
Again, like the cufflinks, OMEGA has an important catalog of sunglasses from which to choose. However, to make things easier for you, we think these exquisite sunnies – with their butterfly shape, glare-killing graduated brown Zeiss lens treatment, oversized (55mm) vintage-fashion-inspired frames, and a touch of gold elegance at the temple – are the perfect complement to this gift bag’s Speedmaster 38 timepiece and complete a very alluring look.

Gift #3
Cap off this elegant triple-pairing with something from the brand’s selection of fine jewelry bracelets, like this stunning 18K red gold OMEGA Flower bracelet, which comes in three sizes (15.15, 16.4, and 17.6 cm).

Featuring two mother-of-pearl cabochon flowers at either end of the bracelet, this OMEGA Flower will make a superb watch-and-bracelet stack that accompanies your giftee can take from the boardroom to the ballroom.

The “Wild Blue Yonder” Gift Bag

Gift #1
For the stargazer in your life, this OMEGA Speedmaster Moonphase is the perfect way to add a dose of celestial allure to a humdrum routine because this piece features a photo-realistic, high-resolution depiction of the current phase of the moon at 6 o’clock.

The Speedmaster is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces, having been part of all six lunar missions. Taking the spirit of exploration a step further, this “blue side of the moon” takes its name from the color of the dark blue sky. This connoisseur timepiece is perfectly suited to both, day- and eveningwear.

Gift #2
Aviator-style sunglasses have been the eyewear of choice for a multitude of adventurous types for decades.

Featuring a vintage-inspired double bridge construction, a graduated gray tint on the high-quality Zeiss lenses, and a strong-but-flexible Palladium-colored nickeled silver metal frame, these sunglasses will protect your giftee’s peepers.

Gift #3
To top off this dashing triple-threat of a gift bag, check out OMEGA’s selection of burly yet understated sailing bracelets to create a terrific one-two punch of style on your giftee’s wrist.

Featuring thick-braided nylon and a stunning blue CVD stainless steel clasp and, this OMEGA Aqua sailing bracelet will look great stacked with the Speedmaster Moonphase.

The “Color Shift” Gift Bag

Gifting a watch owner with a colorful NATO strap or two is a great way to change up the look of a beloved timepiece. Sized to fit nearly any Omega watch, this trio of NATO-style fabric straps only represent the tip of the iceberg of OMEGA's NATO strap catalog.

For instance, this black-with-white-stripe polyamide strap offers a subtle approach. Meanwhile, this bolder, vibrant blue with orange stripe variant ups the sporty ante. Finally, this double-striped red, white, and blue NATO option creates a decidedly natty sartorial statement.
