No, we are no fashion gurus. But, yes we do know and love our watches! It’s that time of the year! There's a festive spirit in the air, and everyone is getting ready to celebrate in style. With Durga Puja approaching, we all know that it's only the beginning of the glamor, elegance, and celebrations, with Dussehra, Diwali, Christmas, and New Year on the horizon. You should not only enjoy the celebrations but also bring your A-game.

It's finally your turn to shine! Do you have the perfect dress but can't settle on a matching accessory? Take it from us: a classic and elegant timepiece on your wrist may do wonders for your ensemble. Here are our top recommendations for the festive season which are a no-brainer.

1. Bvlgari Serpenti

Leave the blacks and greys of yesteryear behind and bring out the glittering highlights with this timepiece. A forever classic and just the watch to match your festive outfits. A magnificent gold snake watch, artfully curled to fit your sleeve. It glistens with every movement, like a second skin, and oh, it's difficult to keep the gaze off of it. The 'Serpenti' spell is cast.

The 2022 lineup is an aesthetic triumph, a throwback to the simpler times of the gilded 'Serpenti,' with its riot of black and green lacquers, jewels, and turquoise accents.


bvlgari serpenti

It has a mechanical movement developed in-house by Bulgari dubbed Piccolissimo (Italian for "extremely small") and despite its diminutive size (a diameter of 12.30mm and a weight of 1.3gm), it is capable of generating a power reserve of 30 hours. This next era of watchmaking is set to impress in both form and function. Playful, yet luxurious - a no-brainer this festive season.

2. Franck Muller Long Island

Festivals are celebrated with zest and taking part in the different festivities that mark the holiday demands some planning. The Franck Muller Long Island is a fantastic choice.

Franck Muller Long Island

The architecture of the Long Island™ pays respect to the Art Deco movement in a new interpretation of the Novecento era. The geometrical and numerical focus of the Long Island has propelled it to the forefront of Franck Muller's oeuvre. Thanks to its rectilinear and arched numerals, the Long Island has become an iconic model built to properly fit the wrist of males.

3. Panthère de Cartier

The Panthère de Cartier watch, which can also be worn as jewelry, is a standout creation from the French luxury brand. It is a must-have for any lady who wants to draw attention to herself and is therefore adorned with precious metals and stones. Attractive, fierce, feline, and unrestrained.

Similar to how the color gold complements the sky, the panther serves as a contrasting element for Cartier while still fitting in harmoniously with the brand. The watch's design reflects the balance, structure, and fluidity of Maison's signature animal. The Panthère de Cartier is a brick-like body set against daring curves, with a square face and rounded edges that are complimented by the gold-link bracelet for which the watch is known.


4. Rolex Datejust

During this time of year, we celebrate more than simply festivals, there are also weddings! The Datejust is a flexible and stylish timepiece that can be customized to the wearer's tastes with a variety of bezel options (including smooth, domed, fluted, and diamond-set). The distinctive fluted bezel is always made of 18-karat gold (available in yellow, white, and Everose). Diamonds can be used to set all or part of the bezel. Experts on staff select each diamond for its spectacular cut. Next, Rolex's gem-setters take over, carefully setting each stone by hand to highlight its individual brilliance.


The Datejust can be outfitted with either a Jubilee, Oyster, or President bracelet, depending on the model. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust was introduced in 1945 alongside the silky and flexible Jubilee bracelet. The Oyster bracelet is the most popular style among Oyster Perpetual customers because of its durability and versatility. Only Datejust 31s in 18-carat gold can be ordered with the President bracelet, which features three semicircular links. It goes well with a sherwani or a suit, don’t you agree?

5. Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One Duetto

The festival of Diwali is a time for people to come together and share in the spirit of the holiday. The new Reverso One Duetto in pink gold from Jaeger-LeCoultre is the perfect accessory for the festival of light because it shows both the time of day and night. This clock is inseparable from the sophisticated woman who enjoys novelty without sacrificing her own sense of self.

The boldness of this timepiece, which features two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds, comes from the gleaming hue of its alligator leather strap with a satin finish.

6. Piaget Polo Date watch

There's a carefree, jazzy vibe permeating everything from poojas to all-night card parties, and it makes us want to put on our heroic persona. Seeing as how this is the finest time to hang out with loved ones, why not wear something that makes you feel special? Such is the case with the Piaget Polo Date watch.

This self-winding watch is a new model for men and has a bold personality together with an easy elegance that works for any event. This luxurious men's timepiece features a curved case and a steel band that is both polished and satin-brushed for a modern look and feel. Inside a case-middle that combines round and cushion shapes in the purest Piaget aesthetic heritage is a blue horizontal guilloché dial with luminescent applied hour-markers indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds, as well as a date window at 6 o'clock. Waterproof up to 10 ATM, the steel casing is 42 mm in diameter and features a sophisticated combination of polished and satin-brushed surfaces.

Well, we hope we made your life easier by recommending these no-brainer watches! Which one are you going to wear to brighten up the festivities?
