The nights have really started to draw in and it is about now that thoughts turn to the season of goodwill and, not entirely unnaturally, to Christmas presents. In the midst of trying to find the perfect presents for all of your friends and relatives; spare a thought for them because they are probably finding it just as challenging as you. So what happens if you have some well- heeled friends, relatives, or even have enough left over to treat yourself? We decided to take a look at some watches which just might make it on to your wish list. Here at The Male Stylist we believe that Christmas style should be more Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin than Rambo, hence our choices reflect the slim, understated appearance that really makes its own gentleman’s statement.
Tissot’s entry level automatic watch gently eased itself into our affections because at £395 to £430 from high street outlets (or little less on the net) it represents real value for money and has touches of genuine elegance. Dagger hour and minute hands and a long second hand make for clear reading and the period ‘Tissot’ lettering on the face and on the clasp create a modern take on classic features. It is available in steel or ‘gold’ finish and with a black or white face and can be fitted with black or brown leather straps or a steel bracelet. At 40mm diameter some might argue that it is a little big for a truly ‘smooth watch’ but it reflects the current trend for larger watches and actually wears neatly on the wrist. Oh and a finishing touch is that, even in our 24/7 culture, Sunday remains, literally, a red letter day on the Visodate. View Post

Not only can this look disastrous but it might not necessarily be the most efficient way to stay warm. So we’ve put together a few tips to help you feel warm and look hot this winter season. View Post
