  • Countdown the days to Christmas in style

    If somebody you know really needs to make being punctual a New Year’s Resolution, we’ve sussed out a Christmas gift that’ll keep them on time. Armani Exchange has released their Christmas watch collection, but don’t expect any red and green here – it’s all black, all modern and all ultra covetable.

    The boys in your life will find something to live in the Dynamic Streets Collection, which has a distinctly urban and throwback feel to it that we’re totally down for. On the other end, their women’s Notting Hill collection is its complete antithesis with sophisticated minimal watches that are sure to upgrade any work wardrobe. Check them all out below.

    AX5543 Notting Hill Watch, £124.25, Amazon

    Black and gold always looks effortlessly luxe and this elegant ladies’ watch definitely fits the bill. With a patterned thin leather strap, black dial, rhinestones and gold indexes to finish the whole thing off, it’s a workwear staple you’ll be reaching for again and again.
