Christmas Day is upon us, which means it’s time to do the last minute shopping – here are our quick wins!

The term “fashion watch” has undergone a major image overhaul; switching from derogatory to celebratory in just a few short years. This year’s crop of launches are some of the best yet and make the perfect Christmas presents. Here’s the top five as chosen by the judges of the Eve’s Watch Awards.

Gucci Le Marché des Merveilles Snake Watch


The winner of the Best Fashion watch category, this is a cracker of a watch from Gucci. From the embroidered kingsnake to creative director Alessandro Michele’s 2017 motto “Blind for love” stitched in French through the middle of the Nato-esque strap, there is nothing not to love. RRP £560

Fossil Idealist Light Brown Leather Watch

Fossil-Idealist-Light-Brown-Leather Watch

It seems as though television-set shaped dials are very much on-trend this season and this quirky little number from Fossil shows why. It is elegant without straying into twee territory and the Tiffany blue gives it a wonderful retro feel. There are other colours available and varying prices RRP £100- £200.

Swatch SkinSkin

Swatch-SkinSkin Watch

Swatch is a perennial favourite when it comes to on-trend designs that are very pay-cheque friendly. This is a subtle slimline creation that sits on your wrist, like, well, a second skin. Perfect for anyone who isn’t a fan of the boyfriend watch trend. RRP £76

Tissot Heritage Banana

Tissot-Heritage-Banana Watch

Much like the fruit after which it is named, this watch is not to everyone’s tastes. However, you can’t deny it is a bold vintage design from Tissot that really stands out from the crowd. RRP £340

Fendi iShine

Fendi-iShine watch

A bit of an extravagance but it is totally worth it to see the 12 rotating gemstones. According to Pietro Beccari, Fendi’s CEO and chairman, this watch is a “tribute to the beauty of light”. We just think it’s fabulous and in comes in pink too! RRP £2,000
