Does the watch define the wearer, or does the wearer define the watch? This is the question that has plagued luxury watch philosophers for thousands of years.
Dialopoles and his student, Subdialopoles, posited that a luxury watch is unknowable in its entirety until it is worn by its owner. His rival, Tickrates, believed that luxury watches were items of power that brought their wearers into a more solid and permanent state of reality.
It's all very confusing and nonsensical, and it certainly doesn't help at all when the holiday season rolls around and you're trying to figure out which luxury watch you should get for your favorite person.
That's why we thought it was important to put together this guide for you. We've tried to include every type of person on this list, so you can just scroll through until you find what you're looking for.
Without further ado, here is the 2022 WatchMaxx Luxury Watch Holiday Gift Guide!
