Which watch will he love? Well, let us break it down into three sure-to-please styles. First up: the classic steel watch, upgraded, here, from ’80s wheeler-dealer to European flâneur by Gucci, with sleek branding and a wear-with-anything blend of metals. Alternatively, if he’s as into his tech as he is his style, then treat his inner James Bond to the latest range of luxury smartwatches (this design by Tag Heuer comes with its own app to upload photos and the like). And, finally, the ultimate choice for the man of refined tastes: minimal, leather strap watches by the likes of Junghans. Whether it will make him more punctual in 2018, only time will tell.
