Whether you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift or just an excuse to buy yourself another watch (don’t worry, we won’t tell), these “his and hers” models offer a unique way to celebrate your couplehood, while expanding your respective wristwear collections. Not to worry though, plenty of these options will suit any couple regardless of gender or wrist size.
Rado True Square Open Heart
One of the key parts of the equation here is the archaic nature of “his and hers”. No, there’s nothing wrong with wanting “his and hers” watches, but it’s just as fitting to be “hers and hers”, “his and his” or “theirs and theirs”. This is in part why we’re fond of Rado’s take on it this year — the True Square Open Heart is genuinely genderless, and the brand makes no attempt to place gender direction on its Valentine’s campaign.
Recently refreshed, Breitling’s sexy Chronomat is a glorious and freshly updated addition to the brand’s collections, and if we had to pick a pair, these ice blue references are a no brainer.
Frederique Constant Highlife
The Frederique Constant Highlife collection was a welcome addition to the brand’s repertoire when it launched, arriving as a well executed yet still relatively affordable take on the integrated bracelet sports watch craze that resurfaced in the last three or four years. We’ve opted for the simpler 3-hand references here, but it’s worth noting that the collection also includes a chronograph and a world timer, in case you’re looking for something a bit more complicated.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic
This iconic watch was designed with its unique reversible case to protect it on the polo field, but it looks just as good worn without jodhpurs and a mallet, particularly when combined with a fine ostrich leather strap.
TAG Heuer Aquaracer
Perfect for those sporty couples who wear matching outfits while training for the next Iron Man, this two-tone diver’s serious ’80s vibes more than make up for its lack of a pedometer, altimeter, or heart rate monitor.
An unimpeachable classic from Cartier, the Santos-Dumont is available in a whole range of metals and finishes, but looks particularly stunning in 18k pink gold.
Chopard Alpine Eagle
Styled after the classic steel sports watches of the 1970s, the new Alpine Eagle XL Chrono is a seriously stylish piece of modern horology. The women’s version doesn’t come with a chronograph, but it does come with a whole lot of diamonds.
