Choosing the right gift for someone can be a minefield. No matter how well I know my husband and my friends, I always like to buy them something they won’t just love, but also find useful. We all like to start a new year feeling more organised, so a beautiful timepiece is a great option. The trick? Finding watches in Singapore that look great without breaking the bank!
Thankfully, we’ve discovered Danish brand Bering. Inspired by the founder’s adventures in the Arctic, the pieces caught our eye for their minimal features, timeless silhouettes and premium materials like sapphire crystal and high-tech ceramic that are scratch-resistant.
Gifts for her
In addition to their core collection of watches in sleek gold, silver or rose gold metal finishes, Bering recently collaborated with Danish designer Max René to create a cool unisex watch capsule. The watches from the range have unique interchangeable straps – perfect for those with an eclectic and changeable personal style. Using a unique sliding technology, you can replace your watch strap in seconds and coordinate with your outfit or mood.
