This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
Some gifts are timeless. So failproof that they can pass, in one form or another, as a gift for every single person in your family. A watch, for example. Everyone can get use out of a watch and, with so many different types of timepiece, there’s a watch to match most styles. From grandma down to younger brother, BREDA's time-spanning collection is more versatile than most thanks to the brand’s commitment to the classics but willingness to experiment, too.
To prove the universal appeal of BREDA, we’ve rounded up the perfect watch gift for everyone in the family, one by one. So, from the classics like Visser to colorful, modern timepieces like PLAY, here’s your definitive gift guide to the best watch gifts this Christmas.

For you - BREDA Virgil
The golden age of square-faced watches feels like it could be around the corner as these vintage designs begin to appear again. Virgil is a confident take on the timeless watch, perfect for someone looking for something outside of the ordinary with unchanged sophistication.
For your partner - BREDA Esther & Virgil
We've got two suggestions for your partner, but each unisex and as understated as each other, they're both winners. Esther revolves around a beautiful dark green face and silver bracelet while Virgil's leather strap and clean white face promise easy styling.
For mom - BREDA Eva
For mom, something delicate but effective. Eva features a 19mm 18K silver case, elegant leather strap, and below the surface, there's a Japanese-made Miyota Quartz movement powering this piece with serious precision.
For dad - BREDA Virgil
BREDA's Virgil watch is about as classic as watches come, which is why it's suitable for multiple family members. This one's ideal for dad thanks to a sophisticated lizard-embossed leather strap that will age with grace, much like him.
For your sister - BREDA Esther
A full rose-gold outfit gives this iteration of Esther a more contemporary aesthetic without altering the pared-back style of the watch itself. It stands out more than silver on the wrist, but it doesn't dominate the look.
For your brother - BREDA Visser
With absolutely no frills, the Visser is ideal for your brother. It's all black, save for contrasting silver dial markings, and features a classic five-link bracelet to round out the piece's absolute minimalism.
For your cousin - BREDA Play Watch
So you haven't seen your cousin since, well, last Christmas so how should you know what kind of watch they wear? Turns out they wear the BREDA PLAY because it's a durable and visually punchy timepiece.
For grandma - BREDA Jane
Grandma may well have owned a watch like Jane at some point in her life. This classic design features just four gold quarter-hour markings to the natural mother-of-pearl dial, propped up by a silver bracelet and gold-plated case.
For Grandpa - BREDA Visser (Metal)
When it comes to grandpa, it's not worth trying anything too brave. The BREDA Visser is perfect in terms of shape and style thanks to a five-link stainless steel bracelet and steel dial to match.
