Tom Kennett's Christmas picks for Men - 2015

Tom Kennett's Christmas picks for Men - 2015

Tom Kennett’s style edit for the perfect Christmas gift

Choosing a watch for the man in your life, partner, dad, brother, son, grandfather, can be an overwhelming experience.  How this accessory looks on your wrist impacts the rest of your outfit and provides the final detail to polish your look. Our founder and designer Tom Kennett recommends his favourite pieces that offer no compromise on style.

“The Challenger”

 A modern and versatile watch.  The Challenger is waterproof up to 100 meters making it perfect for the sartorial man who enjoys an athletic lifestyle.

A stainless steel case with black PVD plating can be complemented by a black Milanese strap for a true sport luxe look or a black leather strap for the more classic look.

 “The Kensington”

A clean and polished watch that will enhance any outfit.  The Kensington is for the man who takes time over his appearance and for whom the finishing touches really matter.  The slim line profile and minimalist design takes inspiration from contemporary Scandinavia.


For a more casual look, the NATO strap perfectly complements the silver face and casing.  This strap takes inspiration from war time designs.  My favourite NATO colour is the red and blue combination.

For a watch that works from the boardroom to the bar, the silver stainless steel Milanese strap is adaptable and elegant.

For classic style with a modern twist, I recommend a splash of rose gold in your Kensington.

A white face and rose gold Milanese strap offers a sleek look for the modern man.

If you like to make a statement, a rose gold face coupled with a classic black leather strap do just that. Stylish and wow.

Kennett accessories make for a beautiful gift on their own or as a compliment to one of our watches.  The brushed rose gold cuff links finished with black Swarovski stones are on trend.  These make a true statement and show real attention to the details of your style.

Our Wolf Designs watch boxes are lined with silk and come in a variety of sizes, holding either 5, 10 or 15 watches at a time.  Made from a durable pebbled fabric and a tempered glass lid for ease of choice whilst choosing an outfit, this is the perfect gift for a new or a seasoned collector.
