Gone are the days when stockings are stuffed with dollar store finds, loads of candy and other oddities you’re sure to re-gift or simply chuck in a donation pile. That festive sock is valuable real estate where you can prove the best things really do come in small packages.
For the watch collector in your life, it shouldn’t be too difficult: Watches and their accessories are inherently compact, after all. But if you’re finding yourself in a holiday panic, paralyzed by the not-so-subtle ticking clock counting down the shopping days that remain, don’t fret. We have five quick and easy stocking stuffers that are perfect for your resident watch lover.
Berluti Scritto Leather Watch Case
As your watch collection grows, you can never have too many rolls and cases to store your models or securely take them on your travels. And sometimes, you want a case that’s just as beautiful as the timepiece inside. Look no further than Berluti’s Scritto leather case. This stunning single-watch case is crafted in Italy from the house’s signature Ice Brown patinated leather and etched with its calligraphic Scritto motif.
Jean Rousseau Asteria Alligator Watch Strap in Green
Nothing makes an old watch feel brand new again like swapping the strap. With a few simple steps, a new strap gives any timepiece an entirely different look and feel. If you want to make any model feel ultra-luxurious, an alligator strap is the way to go. We love this rich green hue of this strap from Jean Rousseau. It’s subtle enough to serve as a neutral accessory for any outfit, yet eye-catching enough to add a bit more flair than your standard black leather.
