I found picking the right watch was made a lot easier by visiting The Watch Hut. They have an absolutely massive range, so there is certainly something for everyone. They also are easily searchable by function, brand or even colour so you can quickly put your finger on what would suit you best.
If I was to choose the ideal set of his n hers watches for me and The Boy, I would look for something that reflected our shared characteristics. We’re a pair of old hippies who love getting out into the great outdoors, riding our bikes and catching some sun. And lo and behold, I found the perfect pair for us.
Seiko Gents Solar Powered Chronograph
For The Boy, this lovely watch would be perfect. Currently on sale with 20% off at £199, I know he would love the fact that it is solar powered, making it that bit more sustainable and environmentally friendly than your average offering.
It’s up to 100m water resistant and has a lovely clear dial. In addition to the solar glowing hands, this means it is an excellent choice for an active man, perfect for when we spend the night camping under the stars.
Finally, the brown leather strap is classic, and would appeal to his sense of style, matching all of his outfits but being a little bit different from the norm, just like him!
Citizen Ladies World Time A T Chronograph
To complement my selection for The Boy, I picked this beautiful watch with a complimentary brown strap. It’s a bit more feminine, but equally functional and also has the snazzy eco-drive feature which we love so much, making it a sustainable choice.
It is radio controlled and also features a world clock – perfect for knowing when the right time comes to Skype our lovely friends in California.
Priced at £369, this watch would suit any occasion, from a day out cycling to a gallery launch (and whatever falls between those two parameters). I think that we would really be the toast of the town wearing this selection.
