There is no better time to do something for yourself than Christmas. During the rest of the year, we get so caught up with the needs of others that we often forget to take care of ourselves. With how difficult this year has been, dedicate this Christmas to self-care. Have a spa day, devote a week to your favourite hobbies and just relax. And while you’re at it, why not look through this list of watches to treat yourself with this Christmas and get yourself something special.
This Christmas, treat yourself to a piece of Rado history. The brand’s Captain Cook collection is inspired by design from the 1950s and 60s. The model has been modernised but has retained its vintage silhouette and colours. This model is robust and reliable. Luminescent indices and thick luminescent hands contrast the blue dial. A bezel is a similar blue, compliments the dial. The case and the bracelet are made of stainless steel. The watch is water-resistant up to 200 metres and has an 80-hour power reserve. To increase the durability of the timepiece, the watch has a sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown. Functions on the watch include hours, minutes and seconds hands and a date aperture.
Every watch collection is incomplete without a U-Boat. For Christmas, why not indulge and purchase this limited edition U-Boat. Built to withstand the most rigorous of diving challenges, the model is highly robust. The case is made of titanium and features a screw-down crown on the left-hand side. To increase the already incredible water-resistance of 1001 metres, the watch is fitted with a helium escape valve. The crystal is sapphire. Additional watertight sealing is added to the bezel. Two superimposed layers make up the dial. One is blue and treated with Superluminova, the other is black so the blue indices stand out. It features a date aperture at 4 o’clock and has an automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve. The strap is made of vulcanised rubber. Making the model even more exclusive is an engraved case back. The timepiece is limited to 300 models.

Features on the model include a date and a day aperture. A black leather strap completes the retro-chic design. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal.
