The holidays are a time for family, food and the giving (and receiving!) of fabulous gifts, and there's perhaps no present more personal than a watch. Whether giving to a loved one, or simply to yourself (the best kind of present, no?), watches are an enduring choice that hold special meaning for years to come. 

Luxury Swiss watchmaker Omega knows this better than anyone and seeing as choosing just one proved to be a challenge, Buro 24/7 Middle East has edited our top three favourite styles to give you a stylish steer...

The Speedmaster 38mm in Cappuccino

One of the brand's most popular watches for 2017, the Speedmaster 38mm in Cappuccino is made from stainless steel and 18k Sedna gold (the brand's own metal created by blending gold, copper and palladium). Finished with a chic taupe-brown leather strap, the watch also has Omega's famous tachymeter scale on the inside and a diamond-set bezel.

The Constellation Master Chronometer

A classic choice, the Constellation Master Chronometer is far from simple. Driven by the Master Chonometer calibre 8700 with a white-silver opaline dial, the 27mm watch features a silk-like pattern inspired by vintage models of the same style made in the 1960s. If you're looking for a piece that will go with any outfit, this is it.

The Aqua Terra 150M Master Chronometer

A white Mother of Pearl dial provides a stylish focal point on the 38mm Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer, which is beautifully complemented by the diamond-set bezel that finishes the piece. Not simply a pretty (watch) face, the style is powered by the Master Chronometer calibre 8800, the highest standard in the industry.
